Part of the AdvanTech™ Subfloor Assembly Backed by a Squeak-Free Guarantee
Builders and remodelers in North Carolina have a new way to help protect against job delays and callbacks for squeaky subfloors. Huber Engineered Woods LLC, a leading manufacturer of innovative building solutions, announced today that Advantech™ subfloor adhesive – which was introduced throughout New England and New York at the NAHB International Builders’ Show in January – is now available in North Carolina.
Now when design and construction teams combine the strength and moisture-resistance of AdvanTech® subfloor panels with new AdvanTech subfloor adhesive, the result is an AdvanTech™ Subfloor Assembly that’s better than ever before and comes backed by a Squeak-Free Guarantee for the panel-to-joist connection. AdvanTech flooring has been a trusted subflooring brand for nearly 20 years. Unlike traditional OSB or plywood, AdvanTech flooring provides a unique combination of strength, stiffness and fastener holding power with remarkable moisture resistance. AdvanTech subfloor adhesive adds a powerful polyurethane bond to subfloor assemblies to help eliminate differential movement between AdvanTech panels and joists, so fasteners stay put, floors stay quiet and homeowners stay happy.
“We’ve received a lot of positive feedback about AdvanTech subfloor adhesive in New England and New York,” said Mike Pyle, AdvanTech product director. “Using the heavy-duty bond of AdvanTech subfloor adhesive helps the whole AdvanTech Subfloor Assembly act as a single unit and reduces the chance of materials moving against each other, which is what generates squeaks.”
With AdvanTech subfloor adhesive, the gun-applied foam collapses into a high-strength gel that fills gaps for a firm bond even on irregular surfaces. The unique foam-to-gel formulation provides quick and easy application and yields eight times more coverage than traditional hand-squeezed cartridge adhesive, and its powerful polyurethane bond exceeds ASTM D-3498 adhesive standards.
Plus, due to its moisture-curing polyurethane properties, it can be applied to frozen or wet wood, eliminating frustrating job delays due to weather. AdvanTech subfloor panels are designed to provide powerful moisture resistance, strength, and stiffness that help panels stay flat with no sanding required, even after exposure to harsh job site conditions.
