Floor squeaks are one of the most common homeowner complaints in single-family structures and can be a costly repair in multifamily or light-commercial buildings. As part of a home or building that actively performs all day, every day, it's one of the most important structural interior surfaces of design. While wood-frame floor systems have maintained fairly consistent design standard for years, there remains a persistent issue with squeaks, pops, and uneven flooring that may be the result of a combination of subpar subflooring products or installation.
Join AdvanTech Product Director Mike Pyle for a discussion on best floor system design practice from frame to finish, to prevent floor squeaks.
Learning Objectives - After viewing this webinar, you should be able to:
- Recognize the behavior characteristics of high-performance wood-framed floor systems with superior strength and stiffness attributes.
- Investigate the multiple components of a wood-framed floor system and the ways that they all contribute to improved performance and the elimination of movement and floor squeaks.
- Assess the functional contributions of engineered wood subflooring as it relates to structural strength, fastener retention, water resistance, and overall stiffness.
- Design and specify wood-framed floor systems that perform as intended and reduce or eliminate squeaks that are indicators of other issues.
