Answer This Question

A:  Hello Patrick, Telegraphing can be a concern with thin finished flooring materials, but this should not happen with Rubber mats in my experience. Please contact our customer service to further discuss, it would be easier if we knew which rubber flooring you are referring to. help@dricore.com. Thank you!

        Q:I install ceramic tile over my basement concrete floor. Can I install dry core over this without removing tile ?

        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello Leon, Provided the ceramic tile surface is clean, structurally sound, and free of debris or materials that may impair the performance of the panels, yes you may install over top. The existing surface must also be free of materials that may trap, block or absorb moisture, or promote mold growth.

              Q:I need to cover 495 sq ft, could someone confirm of how much tiles I would be needing for the basement coverage. I used the coverage calculator and it says 144 before and now 150.

              Answer This Question

              A:  Hello Xiyan, Project calculator: Square footage divided by 3.3 will give you the number of panels required. So, 495/3.3 = 150 We recommend 1 package of leveling shims for every 60 subfloor panels. so = 2.5 packages Hope that helps!

                A:  Yes if properly installed 

                by|Jul 15, 2023

                  A:  Hello Dwayne, Yes. The DRICORE Subfloor panels can handle weights of up to 6,642lbs/sq.ft. But not impact weight, so you would not be able to drop the weights. Also, Panels beneath vibrating machines should be anchored to the concrete. To anchor panels, We recommend flat head 1-3/4 x ¼” Concrete screws (IE Tapcon) and a 4-1/2 x 3/16” Drill bit to bore the holes. Hope that helps!

                  by|Jul 19, 2023

                    A:  From my experience, I would say yes.

                      Q:My last order (100 panels) had 73 that resembled what I'm used to: OSB, flat/smooth slightly-glossy surface, but 27 of them were lighter in color, bumpier surface, possibly thinner strands... almost paper-mache in appearance. Is this a new future? Is OK?
