When there is a gap between the top of the joist and the underside of the subfloor this creates space for movement when pressure is applied to your flooring. Next, take a thin wood shim and coat it with carpenter’s glue. Gently tap the shim into the space between the joist and subfloor. Don’t drive it in too far because you will raise the flooring.

How to Fix Squeaky Floors - This Old House

Most squeaks are the result of the plywood subfloor rubbing against the floor joists. The subfloor, the structural support below the top floor that you walk on, will sometimes shrink over time as the wood dries out, changing the shape slightly and resulting in high-pitched, irritating squeaks.Yes, screws are generally better than nails for fixing squeaky floors. Screws have better-holding power than nails and can more securely anchor the subfloor to the floor joists, reducing the movement that causes squeaking. We recommend using a stud finder, taking a hammer and tapping the carpet to listen for the difference in sound, or using the tool found in your Squeak No More kit.

This tip really only works if you have two or more boards that are moving and rubbing against each other. It may be that this movement and friction is the source of your squeak. It’s very important to let your floorboard adapt to its new environment. If it isn’t done correctly, then there is a high chance that the floorboard will expand or contract after installation. This can create gaps between the boards, which rub together, causing unwanted noise. In this case, it’s better to replace the flooring instead of fixing it.Thanks for taking your time to read our information on the best screws for floorboards. In many homes up and down the United Kingdom, you will hear the sound of creaking floorboards. Start by having someone walk across the floor while you listen from below. When you hear a squeak, have the person above rap on the floor so you can pinpoint the exact spot.
