What is a subfloor?

A subfloor is a solid surface that is placed underneath a more decorative, finished flooring material. This protective layer is laid over a system of floor joists. A floor joist is a series of thin rods that are attached from wall to wall. They are spaced in a way that offers support for the weight that will be on top of the floors themselves. Your subfloor is there to prevent the floor from buckling under furniture and foot traffic.

Types of subfloors

Now you know what a subfloor does. But what types of subfloors are there? Knowing what is underneath your floors can help you make sure that you are receiving the right service. There are three common types that you should know. They are:

  • Concrete: Concrete is one of the hardest materials used in home renovations. It is known for its durability and affordable price. Concrete must be cured for at least 60 days and have a minimum of 6-mil poly-film between it and the ground layer to be used as a subfloor. It can be ground down to create a level surface to install floors over. They are good at absorbing sound and will not squeak. But they can become cracked from water damage.
  • Gypcrete: This mixture of gypsum, Portland cement, and sand is extremely durable. It is fireproof and controls sound well. Gypcrete can be cost-effective when it is first poured as a subfloor. But it is known to turn into a very fine dust after years of use and can drive up labor costs as a result. You should inform your repair technician if you think your subfloors are made of gypcrete so that it can be sealed properly before additional flooring work is done.
  • Wood: Wood is the most common choice for subflooring. It is relatively affordable and will likely last for many years. Flooring installations are often completed with nails. Glue down and floating installation are two other methods that are used. Uneven spots can be sanded down and filled in with a leveling compound. Squeaking is the most common problem reported with wood because the pieces of wood can rub together when not fastened tightly.
