Subfloor adhesive reduces squeaks and boosts durability
Residential builders and remodelers who have experienced the pain of job delays or callbacks for squeaky subfloors will soon have access to a combination of subfloor products to combat squeaks.
At the 2016 International Builders' Show, Jason Darling, general manager of AdvanTech, a unit of Huber Engineered Woods, reviewed the squeak-free AdvanTech Subfloor Assembly introduced at the 2016 NAHB International Builders’ Show.
Darling said by using the combination of the new heavy-duty polyurethane bond of new AdvanTech Subfloor Adhesive and deformed and deformed fasteners, Builders can ensure a a powerfully bonded, panel-to-joist assembly. Darling said the AdvanTech Subfloor Adhesive helps eliminate differential movement between AdvanTech panels and joists, so fasteners stay put, floors stay quiet and homeowners stay happy.
“The AdvanTech subfloor panel is already known for its ability to stay flat. With the added bonding power of the new AdvanTech Subfloor Adhesive, the joist-to-subfloor assembly is so solid, it acts as a single unit and increases floor stiffness overall, which is key in eliminating squeaks between panels and joists,” Darling said.
The new AdvanTech Subfloor Adhesive is a foam-to-gel formula that applies quickly and easily with a gun applicator. Due to its moisture-curing polyurethane properties, it can even be applied to frozen or wet wood.
