Questions & Answers

Q:I would like to install these below new padding and carpet in my basement above concrete. When it rains, water comes in through hydrostatic pressure in the middle of basement. Are these waterproof...will they stop water from getting into carpet padding?

Q:I currently have Home Depot LifeProof LVP throughout my entire house. In several seams in several rooms, calcium deposits are starting to form. Would installing this throughout my house and then reinstalling the LifeProof fix the calcium issue?

Answer This Question

A:  Hello Samantha, First, we recommend for you to perform a calcium chloride test to see if the slab is producing any water vapor or moisture content. If yes, then you need to address that first. You can do this by applying any concrete sealer on the floor first Next, you can perform the Calcium Chloride test again to see if there is any other moisture/ CaCl getting deposited or not. By now, ideally it shouldn't happen again. Once that is addressed, then you can sweep the existing calcium from the floor, make it smooth, without any dust, and then proceed to install DRICORE and then the flooring. Thank you,

    Q:I want to build a sound isolation box to go over an emergency portable generator (It would be in several pieces/sections) .... Any reason that these tiles would not be OK in case it was raining or snowing? I would plan on sealing the particle board.

    A:  Hello Generator, Unfortunately no. These panels cannot be exposed to the elements.

      Q:can this be installed on a raised wooden deck that has been converted into a four season room?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello tomg. First, please be advised: Deck footings are meant to carry the weight of a deck, not an addition. Provided your Building Inspector is OK with this application. DRICORE R+ panels could work, provided the deck is enclosed, climate controlled and protected from the elements prior to installing the subfloor panels. Also, the panels must be installed over a rigid flat surface, in sound condition. Installing our panels in this application would be at your discretion. Our panels are designed for environments where relative humidity is maintained between 40-60% and there is no water. No vapor barrier is recommended as the addition of one could potentially trap moisture here.

        Change in quality
        The change in quality for the foam polymer is disgusting. Not only that, the alignment of the foam is off and i had to cut off the foam edges. This was significantly time consuming. This is very disappointing
          Excellent product! I broke my head many weeks to figure out what could be the best way to insolate and niveling my basement floor. The solution… Dricore R+

            Van Sub Floor
            I recently purchased a 2013 E-Series work van to replace my older one, and while in good shape, the floor was a little beaten up, plus I wanted a surface I could screw to when building shelving. This subflooring was a great choice, it went in really nicely. The foam insulation really takes down the road noise, too. After installing this subfloor, I covered it with an interlocking tile system for a nice looking, and anti-slip finish. 100% would recommend this for your subflooring needs.

              Installed by average DIYer
              I bought these to install a new subfloor in my basement. I completed this entirely by myself as an average DIYer. Ease of install: Very easy, simple, tongue and groove. Tools: I completed it all with a jigsaw, a circular saw, shims, tape measure, carpenter's square. Multitool may help as well. One thing I would recommend is to definitely purchase some shims and possibly levelling cement if your floor has a very large slope that can't be fixed with just shimming.

                Home Depot misrepresent the product
                These are not 2’x2’ as listed in specifications section of the product description, they are 23.25”. I purchased these because there were supposed to be 2’x2’ for a subfloor in a 8’x12’ room. When I inquired about the discrepancy the customer service rep told me while it was mislabeled in the specs section the correct size was listed in the installation instructions and I should have read those prior to purchasing. The product itself is good, Home Depot’s customer service is the issue.

                  Fast and Easy Way to Install a Subfloor, but...
                  This is still a good product to get a subfloor down easily and quickly and makes any room with a concrete floor feel warmer. It's about the same price as laying dI've installed both types of subfloor, and there is no doubt that you can install a subfloor much faster with Dricore. I took off two stars; one star because the newer panels do not work with older panels (I had some older panels left over from a previous job), and the second star because the finish on the OSB appears to be downgraded. Older panels appear to have a semi-gloss, urethane-like finish. The newer panels have a matt finish that looks, well, "cheap".own a traditional insulated subfloor (rigid insulation, sleepers, plywood) but much easier to handle.

                  Bad batch of OSB?
                  I’ve used this product in two different projects. I used the old version with blue foam seems softer, but the OSB was really nice. Very straight T&G, flat and smooth top. New batch of OSB is very rough and splintered. Seams bulged pretty bad as well.
