Sturdy - rigid - interlocks
Great choice for a damp floor. Any moisture stays under the foam and allows the finished floor to stay away from moisture. The panels interlock which helps as well. These are well made and sturdy. I was walking all over these with boots and they didn't give at all. As noted in the product description they're an inch tall so you will loose at least that much in ceiling height but since they also insulate its a better option if you have the head room.

Heavy Duty
I thought this would work great as a subfloor for my room off my basement. I had a pipe leak recently and got water everywhere. Measuring and marking was easy. Cutting took some trial and error. Best edges I did were when I scored the top with my utility knife and snapped it on my knee. This technique produced the cleanest edge. Lightweight and easy to handle. Pieces were easy to push together. Very happy I was able to find this.

Easily deformed, not good
The panel slipped out my hand while carrying it and it deformed the groove. Overpriced for the quality of product you receive. Would not repurchase.

    Looks good, but... Quality Assurance is lacking.
    I was stoked to insulate my basement with these. As I was installing a new vinyl flooring in my 700 square foot family room, I've went with this product since it was almost unanimously recommended. Installation went as expected, until I've noticed a major bump in my flooring after installing three more rows of flooring. I've backtracked my installation just to be sure I didnt drop anything on the subfloor or underneath it. Turns out that it was the actual subfloor that had a bump in it. Looking at the variation in color, it looks like something happened in transit between home depot and the manufacturer, even if the box was in perfect condition. The bump is darker in color and there's nothing that can fix it, given the weight tolerance of this product. So to correct this, I would have needed to remove 6 rows of flooring, rip half of my already installed and taped subfloor, just to swap that piece of subflooring. So i've decided to live with it. I will try to put something super heavy for a long period of time over that bump, but I have little expectations. Without that issue, I would have given a 5 star rating and recommend this product. But knowing one would need to inspect every single panel before installation and that Home Depot wouldnt take a return for one single sheet, I'm going to give it a 3 stars, but wont recommend this to anyone; which is very unfortunate.

      Easy to put down and handle. The basement floor is 5 degrees warmer now than the bare concrete elsewhere

      Dricore was very easy to work with and install. As long as you follow the directions, this is one of the best products I’ve used for a subfloor.

      Easy install/Expensive for foam
      I appreciated how easy this was to install. The price for material that is basically Styrofoam was disappointing. Hoping it lives up to its promises.

        Easy install, great insulation.. worth it!
        This product was fantastic to work with and changed the cold basement into another space in the house. Light weight and easily slides together. Install with a knife, straight edge and tape measure. I’ve used the plywood & plastic backing dricore tiles in the past and the worked fine. However, with these panels you are not left with hollow sound when walking on the flooring. I laid vinyl plank right on top no issues. I’m three months in and still as happy as I was when I finished the install.

        Excellent product for basement subfloor
        Easy to transport and install. I had humidity in the basement and by placing this subfloor and a dehumidifier it allows the concrete to breath

        It's a review
        Install is much easier with being able to cut a it a knife. Much lighter for the carry downstairs.

        Bit pricey, works fine
        It's a bit tricky to get the seams together tight and you have to be careful where you step while installing as the tongues and grooves are easy to snap off. Once installed it's nice but I feel there are more cost effective options with similar efficacy. We installed lvp over it without any issue.

        Im in the process of installation, they are very tight fit so it is not as easy as advertised and not as pressure resistant as advertised but over all good product

        Easy!
        Installed these myself last year. First time ever doing floors and I would do it again with these hundred times over! So simple and easy from carrying them, to cutting them to fit, to installing.

          They delivered 5 boxes.The problem was that 3 of the boxes had damage and holes that were visible and obvious and they still delivered them. I know have damaged panels that I now are returning.

          Disappointed
          We bought this to insulate our concrete basement floor because of the advertised benefits. I'm sorry we did. Our basement floor is not 100% level and trying to level this product with shims and levelling cement was a disaster. We have bouncing floors everywhere. Second, and most disappointing, is that we noticed no temperature improvement downstairs. NONE. After spending $5000+ and countless weeks to finish our basement, I consider this product a waste of money.

            Difficult to put together
            We had an incredibly difficult time locking these together. The tongue and groove didn't seem to fit well at all, and the more we tried to force it the more the edges broke or chipped away. I'm just not sure the cost & height lost in the room is worth a flimsy connection and difficulty of installation. I also wish, like the other dricore options, you could purchase by the panel. We wound up needing a part of one panel from an additional box and that's a frustrating amount to have to purchase.

              Installed this in 1/2 of basement under luxury vinyl tiling. The portion of the basement that has this in place - the floor is significantly warmer.
