Squeak-Free Guarantee1 Now Available to Builders Across the Country
In anticipation of the 2017 NAHB International Builders’ Show — the largest annual light construction show in the world — Huber Engineered Woods is expanding distribution of AdvanTech™ subfloor adhesive, providing access to the spray-foam subfloor adhesive to builders nationwide.
AdvanTech subfloor adhesive was introduced last year to builders and remodelers in New England and New York. The launch of the complementary product to AdvanTech® subflooring, came with the introduction of a 10-Year Squeak-Free Guarantee1 for the panel-to-joist connection of an AdvanTech™ Subfloor Assembly using both AdvanTech subflooring panels and AdvanTech subfloor adhesive. The success of AdvanTech subfloor adhesive in limited distribution over the last year has led to its national distribution in 2017.
“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.”
AdvanTech subfloor adhesive is a foam-to-gel formula that applies quickly and easily with a gun applicator, filling in gaps for a firm bond even on irregular surfaces. The unique spray-on formula provides quick and easy application and yields eight times more coverage than traditional caulk2, and due to its moisture-curing polyurethane properties, it can even be applied to frozen or wet wood. Plus, its powerful polyurethane bond exceeds ASTM D-3498 adhesive standards.3
The complete AdvanTech Subfloor Assembly combines the unique strength, stiffness and moisture resistance of AdvanTech® subfloor panels with the heavy-duty polyurethane bond of AdvanTech subfloor adhesive to provide a squeak-free panel-to-joist connection when used with deformed fasteners and I-joists or trusses. The combination turns subfloors into a powerfully bonded, panel-to-joist assembly so fasteners stay put, floors stay quiet and homeowners stay happy.
Custom home builder Kevin Milbredt knows the importance of flat, quiet floors and happy homeowners.“Squeaky floors are a major pain point for both homeowners and builders,” said Milbredt, operations manager for Southern Cottage Corporation. “AdvanTech subfloor panels have a reputation for being stiff floors and staying flat even after exposure. When you add the new AdvanTech subfloor adhesive to the subfloor too, the result can’t be beat. Even after my first project using both products was rocked with rain – we didn’t hear a squeak “.
