Squeak Free Floors - 3 Tips for Strong Sub Floors

Video Length: 3:19
Produced by: Matt Risinger

Have you ever walked by a china cabinet and the contents rattled?  Or does your house have an annoying squeak in the floor.  In this video I'll give you three tips for framing a sub-floor that's beefy & free of squeaks (and won't be a call back issue for you builders out there)!

By the way, if you've not tried SmartBond glue yet I highly recommend you buy a few cans and give it a try on your next floor framing project.  My carpenters have really liked it, and in my tests it's VERY strong.  

See my other post on the video test I did comparing the pull-off strength of PL400 vs SmartBond.  Fun stuff!
