I have an older house with concrete floor, no vapor barrier under the concrete. I'm wondering if the insulated dry core is the way to go as my basement floor does sweat?

Asked by: Guzz68
We put the Barricade in our rec room in the basement and click floor over it. Although our floor did not sweat the Barricade has channels underneath that would allow moisture to flow without any damage to the floor. We are now putting it another room in the basement as we are very pleased with the first floor (put in a year ago).

Can I use Barricade in my basement (concrete floor after removed carpet) and then install click&lock vinyl plank on it?

Asked by: Chubby Bear
Yes, you can. Please follow our installation instructions for Vinyl. 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.

recommendations for transitioning back to an unfinished concrete floor? A normal reducer does not cover the drop.

Asked by: adam outside
You can purchase custom reducer strips for transitioning from the flooring and subfloor to the lower flooring. If you a pretty handy, and have the tools, you can also purchase lumber and rip it yourself to accommodate the height transition. As an example, here is a video I found on YouTube, of someone making their own reducer strip.

I’m planning to install these panels into my basement. I’ve watched a video online that recommends using half inch spacers around the perimeter. Do these spacers need to be left in place permanently, even after the flooring is installed on top?

Asked by: Fearless Phil
The spacers are removed after the panels are down so that they can float and expand.
Answered by: Alanz
Date published: 2019-03-30

Do you allow for expansion do you allow a 1/4"on the outside walls?

Asked by: Rye Rye
Yes, a 1/4" perimeter gap is necessary when installing up to a finished wall. If you are installing up to a foundation wall and building interior walls on top, the perimeter gap must be increased to 1".

Can this be used in an outside 3 season room?

Asked by: donnie c
Provided the panels are protected from the elements, yes, you may use our subfloor. We recommend the insulated panels if the temperature will not be maintained year long. Also, the panels should be sealed for this application. Most common product used is polyurethane when sealing the OSB of our Subfloor system.

Should I lay this flooring down and then build my career interior walls in top of it? Or should I build my walls first? This is for a concrete floor basement. Thank you

Asked by: David 123
The choice is yours! Here are our instructions for 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.

Does this product have air channels grooved into the panels to allow airflow for damp basements? Comparing other similar products.

Asked by: Ramzito
While the BARRICADE panels do have a bit of a lip in the foam around the edges of the panels, they are not designed to permit air-flow beneath your subfloor. Please use the Air-Plus panels if this is the function you are looking for.

Insulated OSB Subfloor Panel - 23.5" x 23.5" is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet Product Purchased this subfloor product from Lowes on sale and unlike the previous reviewer, I’ve had no difficulty with it. I had 5 or 6 panels damaged by the strapping used to bundle the panels together and reserved them for use where cut pieces were needed. The panels were laid two weeks ago and I’ve noticed no surface breakup or chipping at the time of writing this review. I used a block of wood to assemble the panels and found they went together easily and quickly. Definitely pleased with how the panels’ insulating layer have reduced sound and made the area feel warmer. Yes, I would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install and worth the increase in comfort Glad I bought this to lay under my laminate flooring in basement. Installed quickly and efficiently. Definitely beats most other products out there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use Straigjtforward to use. Fit together easily.. I plan to keep the subfloor uncovered, so i wish it had a finished side (like anothet brand), but they also wouldnt splinter on the edges for handling. But i will have to clearcoat it at some point.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so good Bought for my basement subfloor. Ultimately I left it on but was disappointed with the quality and the result. First off, this product is made of low quality particle board with ultra low density. Don't even think about installing it much earlier than your final finish on the floor because is essentially disintegrates under your feet. It is cheap, cheap, cheap....very light weight for a reason because there is virtually no material there. Second issue, there are some serious limitations of this product on a basement floor. It would have to be virtually perfect level for it to install properly. Any level variations will cause it to be very finicky and the shimming doesn't really work that well. Well, if you have a perfect floor, need for a very light usage of the floor, and a LOT of money than perhaps it is for you. Otherwise, save yourself a disappointment and go for a more traditional subfloor. A bit more work but results will be better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good insulation Decided to use this insulated subfloor against other similar products as it did provide additional cushion against cold concrete. It's a better value and savings in my pocket in the long run

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install and feel warm Good product so far but only just finished install. I didn’t experience any flaking or chipping of wood as noted by reviewer below. I took my time and was careful installing. Pleased but not a cheap product. Helped getting it on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product for confort and energy saving I recently installed around 800 sq ft. over the basement concrete. 2 to 3 degrees difference in temperate when I measure between the bare concrete areas and the areas with this sub- floor. Very happy with the results and plan to buy more to complete all areas in the basement.
