I'm building a 3 season sunroom on an existing concrete slab. Would this work for this application?

Asked by: FederalDrive
Our Barricade Insulated subfloor panels are often used in sunrooms, provided they are protected from the elements. We only recommend these panels for your application, for the benefit of their continuous type one vapour barrier. Humidity must be maintained between 40-60% for optimal performance.

Hello Geortge. For your Square footage of 280, we recommend 85 panels and 2 leveling kits. Our project calculator is to divide square footage by 3.3, this will include a 10% overage in anticipation of cuts and error. We also recommend 1 leveling kit for every 60 panels.

Is it ok to install floor over floor drain in basement laundry room ?

Asked by: Doug 13
If you have a drain or access to clean-outs, access should be maintained, not restricted. Be sure to check with your local authority for building code recommendations before covering any basement floor drain or clean-out access. It is not a requirement to install a basement drain prior to installing a Barricade subfloor. If you install Barricade panels over the drain access, cut an access opening in the panel that rests over top of the drain and install a decorative floor drain cover over top of your finished flooring.

Do you recommend installing these sub flooring in the bathroom?

Asked by: Okman
if you plan to install tile over the subfloor, it's best to screw the Barricade subfloor to the cement below. That will prevent any movement or flex which would crack the grout or tiles. We installed that way a year ago and have had no issues with cracking.

My basement is 310 sq.ft. How many sub floor panels would I need if they are 24 inches x 24 inches.

Asked by: Waynewhite355
To answer this question correctly, you would need to know the measurements of the room not the square footage. example if you had a 100 sq ft room that was 10x10 you would need 25 panels, if the room is 15x6.7 (which is 100 sq ft) you would need 32 panels.

Can this product be used under Vinyl Planks and installation is locking ?

Asked by: Jimmy Dhawan
The plywood underlayment will ensure you have a flat surface for the click mechanism of your vinyl. Here are our installation instructions for Sheet Vinyl, LVT/LVP and Vinyl Tiles 1/4" plywood underlayment approved for use with sheet vinyl or adhesive-backed vinyl tiles should be fastened to the Barricade Insulated Subfloor panels. We do not recommend lauan plywood as an underlayment. Use 3/4" flooring fasteners that do not penetrate the moisture barrier on the underside of the Barricade Insulated Subfloor panels. Do not glue the plywood underlayment to Barricade Insulated Subfloor panels. Do not glue adhesive-backed vinyl tiles directly to the Barricade Insulated Subfloor panels. Glue the vinyl floor to the plywood underlayment according to the vinyl manufacturer's installation instructions. Only remove the 1/4" wall spacers after the vinyl floor has been installed.

Can walls be installed over this type of subfloor. 

Asked by: Jonny00
Making Interior walls An interior stud wall can be set right on top of your new Barricade Subfloor and is in fact, the preferred method of installation. Install your 2X4 frame directly on top of the subfloor, measuring for a "snug" fit between the subfloor and ceiling. Once the frame is in position, simply screw the bottom plates of the 2X4 frame to the Barricade panels, using 2" wood screws. To finish the anchoring process, we suggest fastening the bottom plate to the concrete floor using either 3" concrete nails or concrete fasteners. Only minimal fastening to the concrete is required. For example, for every 8' length of base plate, install only two concrete anchors. Note: If you are planning to use metal studs in place of wood, the base track for the studs should be affixed to the Barricade Insulated Subfloor panels with 5/8" wood screws as a maximum. Metal stud base plates should be anchored in concrete every 2' when installing over Barricade Insulated Subfloor panels.

Can walls be installed over this subfloor

Asked by: Jonny00
Yes, but I wouldn’t recommend it... 1. By installing the exterior walls on top of the sub-floor it will defeat the purpose of having vapour barrier in your walls because the moist air will be able to travel under the floor and then up behind the wall. 2. If you have do have a flood or water damage you won’t be able to remove the sub-floor that is under the walls. I had my basement all framed, plumbed and wired before I realized the mistake I had made.... I ripped it all out, basement isn’t getting finished now. I would recommend not putting the sub-floor down until you’re ready to install your finished flooring, you may want to cut our air register rectangles around the permimeter to allow the cavity below the floor to breathe better. Hope this helps, good luck!

Is there anything that can be applied to make them more water resistant/proof? I have just installed 200 of them. Thank you

Asked by: TM bushcreek
The panels would never be waterproof, as the seams on the underside of the panel may be exposed some. The tops of the panels could be water resistant, provided you seal the panels. Any surface treatments such as paints, stains, varnishes, and polyurethanes must be tested first for compatibility. To apply, brush or roll on 1 coat of a high quality primer prior to painting, or 2-3 coats of polyurethane or varnish to the surface of Barricade panels. Ventilate well during this process.

Can this be use on a cottage wooden floor?

Asked by: Santaclaws
For your application, our recommendation, would be to install the Barricade Insulated Subfloor panels. Reason for this lies in the design vs the Air Plus panel. Our Standard panel offers an effective moisture barrier, however it is not a type 1 vapour barrier. The Insulated panels XPS will provide a continuous barrier. The Insulated panel (R Value 3.2) will also offer you more warmth as opposed to the Standard panel (R Value 1.7). This matters when taking into account the fluctuating temperature and humidity. Given the Cottage environment, with the unheated periods, we encourage sealing the panels. Please speak with an associate in the Paint Department for assistance choosing a paint that is compatible with OSB. Any surface treatments such as paints, stains, varnishes, and polyurethanes must be tested first for compatibility. To apply, brush or roll on 1 coat of a high quality primer prior to painting, or 2-3 coats of polyurethane or varnish to the surface of your Barricade panels. Ventilate well during this process. The OSB on our panels is untreated, and can be a little rough. You can achieve a smooth finish by sanding and sealing the panels. To properly sand the panels, you would first require an 80 grit to get through the “screen” texture of our OSB, then proceed with a 120 grit to reach a smooth finish. You can then apply your polyurethane /paint etc…

Subfloor Air Plus Panel - Air Gap Technology - 23.5" x 23.5" is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install - great product! I recently made the decision to replace the old carpet in my basement family room and was looking for an effective and easy solution. I have never done a 'floor renovation' before but thought I give it a try especially as friends went with the same product. The panels are not cheap but the combination of improved airflow and the straight forward installation makes it worth it. I can only estimate how much time I saved compared to putting in a sublayer mat and then separate OSB boards. These boards are easy to transport, cut and level and make it even easier to lay the floor (I went with laminate) afterwards. The renovation is now complete and I am very happy that I went with this product and with the end result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product We did our basement using this product. We originally had carpet there and instead installed this with a vinyl floor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from no manufacturing standards In order to finish my basement, I ended up buying this product. But I didn't buy enough and had to go back a few months later for more. The second stock of boards were over 1/8 of an inch thinner than the first stock. They aren't even remotely close in size. Now I'm going to have to shim out the undersides so that the floor isn't bouncing, and try to sand down the ridges where the different thicknesses meet. This product is garbage, do yourself a favour and don't waste your money like I did.
