Everyone hates squeaky floors… such a nuisance! Have you ever wondered just why a floor squeaks? Well, one of the reasons a floor may squeak is due to the sub floor separating from the joists. The nails are sliding around in the joist which causes an annoying whiny, griding racket.
To help prevent this irritation, we use a 12-inch 6500 series joist. In the video below we add a special blocking to the end of the joist. This gives you a squeak-free floor and overall better product. So cool!
