Perfect sub-floor for basement
Seemed to be a little pricey, but I needed something to put on basement floor..(existing was not so great cement floor). I am very happy with the results of the dri-loc and being able to put laminate on top. Came out beautiful and Am almost done with what will be my sewing room.

Great for level floor & nice way to get off cement floor.
DRIcore worked very nicely on a level floor. If there is a ridge (high spot), it becomes difficult to install without floor movement.

easy to work with
I installed dricore in my recroom in my basement. It was easy to intall due to the size of the panels and the tongue and groove setup. It is nice because I have low ceilings and the dricore is only 7/8 of an inch thick you dont loose the headroom of a normal subfloor and it warms up the room alot. I am using it as a subfloor but also as a flooring until I do the floors. Once installed the dricore already hase a sealer on it, so I put two coats of gloss urethane sealer (water base for low odor); it only took aprox. 3 litres to do 400 square feet and it really shines.

    This is no longer the great quality product, spectacular solution it once was. We originally did this in our living room 20 years ago and it was wonderful. Our neighborhood is full of versions of our house and neigbors often commented about how quiet, warm and dry our living room was. Then we had a flood and needed to replace the Dricore. And we were excited to see that it had only gone up $1/panel in that time. But it is not the same product. About 6 years ago, their supplier of OSB board stopped making that size. So they retooled and went with board that is about 1/8" thinner. Doesn't sound like a lot. But the difference it makes in weight and rigidity is huge. Don't get me wrong...it is not a terrible product. But it used to be an incredible product. Now, it is merely average. We're very disappointed with our purchase.

      The product is easy to work with and sizing is consistent. Make sure to self level the floor below. The smaller squares do not space inconsistencies with the concrete as well as 4x8 sheets. I would use this product again if needed.

      I’ve only had it installed for two weeks I don’t know how summer will be with the basement humidity and moisture but as for winter there is a significant difference in temperature. The room is so much warmer feeling. I’d say my feet feel probably at least 10 degrees warmer. I would recommend this.

      panel condition
      I live where the Dricore must be shipped. I received a pallet of the squares, and to my dismay, many of the corners, channels and/or tongues were damaged. I know this is for sub-flooring but my intentions were to install it as a walking/living area. Plan B, carpet remnants around the large area rug. Cherry pick from the store.

        This product was much better a few years back. It was thicker and just better overall. I bought this to finish a floor I had started a few years back and there is a significant difference in the thickness and texture of the boards. Not worth the money. Really cheap product.

        Meh - only used them because I had to
        The pieces I purchased in September were of much higher quality than those I purchased in October. October’s panels were very rough, and coarse. And the grooves were far more likely to crack/split/become useless if accidentally impacted with my toe.

        They are easy to install and I know they last for a long time. I have had some over 15 years of use.

        Quick superior DIY sub-floor.
        This product goes down quickly and easily. Be aware older dri-core was thicker than this new product, but I found they were integrated seamlessly together with use of the (very inexpensive) shims along the transition line between the old and new. It appears to me this product comes from different manufacturing plants, as the darker shaded panels appear to have more adhesive. These darker panels do not chip/flake as easily as the lighter panels; so if you can, choose the darker shaded panels first - especially if you plan to wait to put your final flooring down.

        need to ship these more carefully
        These were delivered in poor condition - the OSB panel edges, tongues and grooves were smashed and coming apart. The OSB portion of these panels is low quality - not very solid. I am not going to use these because they will raise my floor too much in relation to a tiled bathroom, otherwise i would probably use them

          I wrap the panel in plastic and use it to cover the top of my outside A/C unit. Better price than other boards and one side is covered in plastic!

          User friendly product for DIY install.
          Second time using Dri-core and easy to install. Has improved the comfort in our basement greatly-along with other improvement made. The tongue and groove connectivity makes it easy to connect each piece - allows you to cover a lot of area in a relatively short period of time.

          Used this in a basement. Great product, and I wish it was more available. It takes a week to ship to the store where I live.

          Poor quality
          I installed Dricore 3/4 inch subfloors 7 years ago to half of my basement. I was happy with the quality of the product then. Now, I was planning to expand the flooring to the rest of the basement. I ordered over 150 pieces using the barcode from my old Dricore subfloor, and I was shocked to discover the new Dricore subfloor thickness is very different from the old one even though the product barcode is the same as my old Dricore Subfloor. The quality of the new subfloor is very poor too. The company gives 25 years of warranty on these product and I tried to reach out the company to inquire for the older Dricore subfloors. I made several attempt to reach the customer service. I left several messages with no response. Now, I am pulling out the old Dricore subfloors and replacing them with different material so that I will not have to have uneven floor and not to deal with inferior customer service from Dricore company. By the way, I returned the new 150 pieces of Dricore subfloors to Home Depot. Home Depot customer service was great in acknowledging the product's defect and refunding without too much hustle.
