Q:how many would I need for a two car garage?

Answer This Question

A:  Hello Johanne, Please access the Project Calculator approximately 3/4 down the page at this link to determine the number of panels required for your application: https://dricore.com/products/dricore-subfloor/

by|Apr 20, 2022

    A:  They're 2' x 2'.  Measure your garage and do the math.

    by|Apr 21, 2022

      A:  The panels are 23 inch square. My porch I closed in is 9 x 14. I bought 30 panels that will give me more than enough. Each panel has about 4 square feet. Multiply length by width of area, divide by 4. This should give you an idea of how many to purchase.

      by|Apr 20, 2022

        A:  I would use at least 2

            Q:Does the foam absorb water?
            by|Jan 28, 2022

            Answer This Question

            A:  Iused it in my cellar and my water heater broke- what a mess.  My plumber said I needed to rip it up because it was a health hazard. Sure enough it took awhile to get to it and the water underneath had turned to slime- yuck.  I ripped it all up, dried out and washed the cement floor and replaced the panels  I do like this product but water under anything will turn to an unhealthy condition.  The panels could not be reused because the water has seeped through and I don’t know how u could have reused them for health reasons. I guess my answer is that it doesn’t matter if they absorb water.  It’s an unhealthy situation to have any water under the panels. 

            by|Feb 1, 2022

              A:  Hello, While the panels are not designed to manage water, no the foam does not absorb water.

              by|Feb 7, 2022

                A:  No this type of foam does not absorb water. It’s the same kind of foam used to insulate a home from the exterior because of this.

                by|Jan 31, 2022

                  A:  No it does not.  I've had this in my basement for 2 years and have been very happy with how much a difference it makes to the floor (warmer, not rock hard to talk on).  I wouldn't recommend it if you are installing in an area that gets some water every couple years.  It could hand a little water, but it won't take 3/4 inch of water without requiring full replacement.

                  by|Jan 31, 2022

                    A:  Nope

                    by|Jan 28, 2022

                      A:  No but , I am curious about why you would ask this question . I use Dry Core over concrete surfaces to get a softer and warmer substrate under the finish flooring . On interior applications if , the concrete slab or floor was installed properly it should be sealed or have a moisture barrier underneath the concrete . On exterior applications the slab probably has neither . If , you are planning on building an enclosed space over an exterior slab then , the slab would need to be removed so , footings can be installed to support the additional weight . Sealing and vapor barriers should be installed at this time . Many of my clients want a true solid wood floor installed over concrete floors in basements and Dri Core is excellent subfloor for this application .

                      by|Jan 28, 2022

                        A:  I would not think it does. We used in the basement and did not want moisture which would possibly cause a mold issue. We have had no issues and it does make a great difference in warmth on a basement floor.

                          Q:There are 2 products of this exact same description. One has a blue backing and the other a black backing. Is there a difference in these? Seems I cannot fins any of the blue backing anywhere.

                          Answer This Question

                          A:  The blue backing is the insulated one. Had a higher thermal resistance. Will keep the space that you are installing these warmer. They are usually more expensive then the black backed ones but is worth the extra money. 

                          by|Oct 18, 2021

                            A:  The blue is the insulated panel

                            by|Oct 17, 2021

                              A:  The black is a thin strong plastic, waterproof but no real insulation value. The blue is a foam insulation, waterproof but with an insulation value of around R-3 if I remember correctly. Where I live the blue is special order. Only the black is stocked in the stores.

                              by|Oct 17, 2021

                                A:  The panels are identical, we changed the color of the foam due to recycling purposes.

                                  A:  Hello fellow Home Depot customer, it looks like they have upgraded these panels to the black ones. The blue is no longer available.

                                  by|Dec 12, 2021

                                    A:  The blue ones are insulated. That’s what I have, and they do a very nice job of keeping the floor from feeling cold to your feet. I had to order them because I couldn’t find any stores that stocked them. 

                                    by|Oct 17, 2021

                                      A:  yes the blue backing is foam insulation which has an r rating and will be warmer feeling under foot. black backing is just plastic

                                        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.

                                        Extra cost worth the time saved.
                                        This is the 2nd time I've used Dricore products on a basement renovation and I couldn't be happier. I priced out doing a traditional sleeper, foam board and plywood vs. Dricore and found that it was about 20 cents more per square foot to do Dricore R+. In my opinion, the time savings alone is well worth going the Dricore route, despite an additional cost. Panels are easy to maneuver, can be laid quickly, can be cut easily, and provide a finished subfloor in a fraction of the time that it would take to do the traditional method for a basement subfloor. I've already noticed a huge difference in how it feels temperature-wise in the basement - especially on some of the cold winter days we had in early January. If I ever do a basement renovation again, I'll be using this product 100%

                                        Very easy to install. Did over 1000sf in one day! A little tricky at the walls to get it tight. Keeps the floor so warm and has a nice feel to walk on once laminate was installed on top.
