Squeaky Chipboard There Is A Solution

If you live in what we class as a new build modern property, you’ll no doubt be well aware of the issues with squeaky, creaky, bouncy chipboard flooring. It can be, and I’ll go as far to say, IS torture. If this comment rings true for you and you’re fed up with constantly hearing people move around the house, well don’t worry, there is a solution! 

We’ve removed a huge amount of failed chipboard flooring and replaced with solid quiet quality plyboard flooring over the years.

Plyboard 2The process is relatively straight forward. We simply cut out your problematic chipboard, add additional strengthening noggins where required, and finally replace with 18 mm tongue & groove structural plyboard (Including the application of an MS polymer adhesive along the joists for added vibration absorption!). Although there are certain types of techniques and machinery required, the process is about as simple as this article..

Plyboard installThe results are truly amazing! From studying past results, we’ve developed a technique that can and does remove 95% of sound associated with a squeaky bouncy creaky chipboard floor. We call it, the ‘peace at last formula’! I say that flippantly, but we do understand the issue with chipboard flooring is a common and disruptive one.

Plyboard install 2I’ve literally had clients tell me they’ve learned to map a path through their squeaky floor minefield to minimize the noise. Nobody should have to live like that, Nobody!

As an added bonus, the grade and type of plyboard we use is the perfect sub-floor to accept any floor covering from carpet, ceramic tiles, luxury vinyl tile (Amtico, Karndean etc), sheet vinyl, laminate, engineered wood, and solid wood. Excluding carpet and floating floors such as laminate, chipboard flooring can not be used (without extensive preparation) as a substrate for most floor coverings. Therefore, why not kill two birds with one stone?!
