A:  plied 11×22 to get 220 square feet. Now we need to calculate how many DRIcore Subfloor panels we need. Like all floor installs, there is going to be some cuts & waste. So you will want to give yourself an extra 10-15% contingency. It really sucks to run out of materials before the job is done, get that extra and save yourself the headache. Add an extra 10-15% to your square foot measurement. So let’s round ours up to 250 square feet. Now we divide our square footage by 4 (as each DRIcore panel is 4 square feet) 250sqft divided by 4 equals 62.5. Now we know to get 63 panels.

A:  Hi, Dricor's website has a calculator available. I entered 600 sq ft and the result was 182 panels. Also, you can use this formula: Length x Width = Square Footage Square Footage / 3.3 = Number of Recommended Panels Note: Actual panel dimensions are 23.25” x 23.25” * This calculation includes an allowance for obstacles and off-cuts

Q:The installation documentation says to use 1" spacer while installing on concrete. I only have 1/2" spacer. Is that going to be a big issue?
by|Jan 26, 2023

A:  I used this in my basement with a gap that ranged between 1/2 and 3/4 of an inch with no problems. I suspect that this is more working room than expansion room.

by|Feb 3, 2023

A:  Hello, the reason we recommend a minimum 1" perimeter gap when installing up to foundation walls is for two purposes. 1. protect the edges of your DRICORE panels from moisture on the foundation wall. 2. Allow for air flow beneath your DRICORE system. Leaving a smaller perimeter gap would be at your discretion.
