Installation Steps

Installing the right foundation

Barricade® Subfloor system is designed to be compatible with all types of finished floors, from luxury-vinyl tile/panel (LVT/LVP) to laminate, engineered hardwood, carpet, and tiles.

1. Preparation

The concrete floor and foundation should be relatively dry and free of large cracks, excessive moisture penetration or flooding problems prior to installing Barricade® Insulated Subfloor panels.

2. Subfloor panel preparations

Make as much space as you can spare in the area where you will be laying the Barricade® panels. Remember, you'll need space to stack the panels, which should be away from where you begin laying the floor. Also, allow panels to acclimate to the basement environment for approximately 24hrs prior to installation.
