Squeak-Free Floors: 3 Tips for Strong SubFloors
Best practice combines good engineered joists, high-quality subflooring, and a strong subfloor adhesive.
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 subfloor 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!
