About This Product

DRICORE Subfloor is the first and most important step towards creating a new living space as warm and comfortable as any other space in your home. DRICORE is the one-step engineered subfloor solution that is specifically designed for basements. It creates an air gap above cold, damp concrete to protect, insulate and cushion your finished floors. Concrete continually releases moisture. DRICORE Subfloor panels have been designed with patented air gap technology to keep basement floors dry, comfortable and cozy throughout the entire year. DRICORE Subfloor panels promote good indoor air quality by allowing air to circulate which in turn reduces the potential for mold and mildew. DRICORE Subfloor panels are fast and easy to install; a typical 500 sqft. basement installs in an afternoon.

Q:Can you put flooring directly on top of this?
by|Jun 7, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hello Juan, Thank you for your question. If the flooring is free floating then yes, you can place the flooring directly over this. If it's not please visit our installation guidelines for further information as a layer of plywood may be needed.

    Q:What is the maximum continuous length you recommend? I understand that you want me to leave 1/4 inch gap for expansion and ventilation, but I imagine that there must be a limit to how long you can have one overall continuous piece, if you know what I mean

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello, Thank you for your question. There is no limit to how long you can leave the expansion gap, as long as it is a minimum of 1/4". Hope this clarifies.

        Q:I am building a subfloor on grade level concrete for installing hardwood flooring. My plan is to install 3/4" tongue and groove plywood on dricore panel which is floating on concrete. What is the recommended way of securing the plywood on this panel?
        by|Apr 11, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello Daniel, Before installing glue-down or nail-down floors a 3/8" plywood underlayment should be fastened to DRICORE® using 3/4" 18 gauge narrow crown staples. When installing nail-down floors test a piece of the finished floor to make sure the fastener does not puncture the plastic membrane. Remove the 1/4" wall spacers after the wood flooring has been installed. Hope this helps!

          I used this floor on top of a concrete slab that’s not waterproofed on an addition to the first level of my home. The install video made it super easy to know how to install and I think it will serve its purpose of making floor area slightly warmer, protecting my new LVP floor, and allowing concrete to breath. Only thing I didn’t like was that half way through my project it seemed like the wood changed as you can see in the pictures.

          Easy install
          The 24 inch format makes these tiles easy for one person to transport, carry and install. I am a woman in my 60s and I was able to complete the job myself easily with great results. Be careful when handling to ensure no damage occurs to the tongues.

          Quality decline from earlier versions
          I am extremely disappointed with my Dricore purchase. I installed a Dricore subfloor about 15 years ago. Recently I discovered mold in the basement and had to rip up 1/2 the subfloor. I purchased new panels only to discover they are inferior to my old panels. The are noticeably thinner and when installed, there is about 1/8" difference in height. Either I will have to remove the rest of the old panels or use some sort of filler to slope the height difference. It's very easy to feel and see the difference in quality between the old and new panels. The old panels had a protective coating on the wood. This is missing from the new panels.

            New tiles are garbage - avoid
            Like others have mentioned - DO NOT Buy this product anymore, they are charging the same price, for a far inferior product. The pictures shown feature a dark smooth OSB layer, the new stuff is a low grade light color that is rough textured. The locking joints are way thinner now can't even support being tapped without flaking. Stop supporting these companies that switch to an inferior product to charge the consumer the same (or more money).

              Poor quality product
              Drycore used to be 3/4 inch thick with a good premium grade oriented strand pressed board. It's only 1/2 inch thick and a very uneven surface which will not work well with any vinyl flooring as the roughness will show through. To bad Drycore thought cost saving by making the product cheaper with inferior grade board and a thinner profile was a smart move. Explain to me when any flooring less than 3/4 inch is the standard used in building. Work great for walls but flooring it is not adequate.

                Mean as a sub-floor not flooring
                When I saw this, I bought some thinking "hey this would be great for my shed floor" not realizing it was not meant to be used as flooring resulting in a disaster.

                  Simple subfloor
                  Very easy to install. Very easy to cut with a jig saw. A table saw or cicular saw can be used as well, but my preference was the jig saw, especially when i needed to go around a door.

                  Disappointed In The Quality Of My Most Recent Purchase
                  I am disappointed with the quality of the panels. I have been buying them in small quantities for several years now, usually 12 at a time, as I gradually cover my basement floor. The quality of the panels has significantly deteriorated. One batch had been allowed to get wet and the surface was wrinkled and at least 4 panels were moldy, To Home Depot's credit, they replaced them. The panels in my most recent purchase had a much rougher top surface than my earlier purchases and the tongues and grooves don't fit together as well. I realize that they are supposed to be an underlayment so perhaps it doesn't matter to contractors, but the earlier ones had a much better, more finished surface. Anyone covering the panels with laminate will now have to sand the margins where the panels meet to get a smooth surface. The manufacturer seems to have skipped the final steps of sanding and spraying on a coating. On the plus side, the plastic bottoms seem to be the same good quality. But the top surfaces are clearly of much lower quality than they used to be.

                  I hate it when this happens
                  I initially purchased this product in 2016 and it was awesome. Since installing the product, it has been durable and proved to be a great solution to finishing my basement floor. This year, because of my previous experience, I went to use the product again to finish the remainder of my basement floor. What I found left quite frustrated with both Home Depot and the product. On the Home Depot there is a materials calculator to determine how many panels you would need; it’s wrong. The product is advertised online and in store as being 4 square feet, but it’s actually 3.75 square feet. As you can imagine, this threw off my caluations and budget for my home project. When I discovered this discrepancy, I went to Home Depot to request a partial refund on what I purchased because of the false advertising— I was dismissed and management acted like there was nothing that could be done. The product left me disappointed pointed because they decrease the thickness by nearly an 8th of an inch, but continue to advertise it as 3/4 of an inch. Because of the difference, the old and new panels don’t match up correctly and the new seem flimsy and lower quality in comparison. Some of the panels I purchase didn’t seem to line up properly as if they were cut in the factory crooked. In addition to the above surprises, they also changed the thickness of the leveling kit product. They kept both the panels and leveling kit at the same price despite the removal of quality and materials. And for this project, on my between my first and second trip the raised the price by ~33%. I went ahead and used the product to complete my project, but only because there isn’t an easy alternative. If you can find something else, I’d recommend going that route. I don’t like to feel slighted, but both this product and Home Depot made me feel such.
