squeaky subfloor

Posted by aim57 (My Page) on

Getting ready to install ceramic tile. After installing the first piece of 3/8" ply (BC exterior grade) over the 3/4" subfloor (1-1/8" total subfloor), the floor squeaks in a few spots when you walk over it.

Is this something that will resolve when the cement board is installed, or are we off to a bad start?

Find the source of the squeaks and remedy them before you install anything over.

How was the new layer fastened down?

Nails or screws?

RE: squeaky subfloor

Thanks, we pulled up the ply, remedied the squeaks, and starting again. Hope that solves the prob. The new layer is screwed.

I have moved this to the bathroom forum.
