What is the best way to quiet squeaky floors?
The room in question has vinyl sticky tile over 4x8 sheet of ply wood. The
room below it is finished, so i have no access to the floor joists from
underneath. I would prefer not to take up the tile to remedy the problem,
but will consider it if this is the only solution. Is there anything that
can be done to quiet the squeaks?
When I replaced my upstairs floor coverings, prior to doing so I
tightened up the floors. My subfloors were plywood nailed to the
joists. Over time, from traffic and seasonal expansion and
contraction the nails in many spots were loose. I put a screw about
an inch from each nail over the whole floor. Took me and my two sons
about three hours.
That was two years ago. Floors are quiet.
Don't know of anything you can do without removing the floor covering.
