Why You Need Subfloors!

Moisture Protection

Concrete is a porous material that continues to absorb moisture from the soil around your house. If trapped, this moisture can cause mold and mildew to grow. The raised design in our subfloor systems allow moisture released from basement foundations to evaporate naturally, helping to limit the growth of mold and mildew, as well as protect against small water leaks.

Insulation

Concrete floors are cold to walk on. Our Subfloor systems provides a thermal break between the cold concrete and your finished floors, which can raise your finished floors’ temperature by up to 10°C or 19° F, making your basement floor feel as warm as any other room in your house.

Comfort

Concrete floors are unforgiving and can be hard on your joints over time. A subfloor system helps soften your finished floors against hard concrete, making it more comfortable to walk on.
