Repair and Replace Damaged Subfloors

Does your floor creak ominously with every step? Are you noticing dips or soft spots underfoot? These could be signs of a damaged subfloor, the hidden layer beneath your finished flooring that provides crucial structural support. Left unaddressed, compromised subfloors can lead to major problems down the line, impacting the stability of your home and causing costly repairs to your finished floors.

We understand the importance of a healthy subfloor. Our experienced team can diagnose the source of the damage, whether it’s water leaks, rot, insect infestation, or simply age-related wear and tear. We then develop a customised repair or replacement plan to ensure your subfloor regains its strength and stability.

Benefits of a New Subfloor

Investing in a new subfloor might seem like an unnecessary expense, but the benefits it offers extend far beyond just creating a smooth base for your new flooring. A sturdy subfloor acts as the backbone of your entire flooring system, playing a crucial role in its overall performance and longevity.

Firstly, a new subfloor ensures a perfectly level surface for your finished flooring. This eliminates any unevenness that could cause discomfort underfoot, prevents tiles from sitting flush, or contributes to premature wear and tear on materials like hardwood. Secondly, a well-constructed subfloor provides superior structural support, preventing floorboards from sagging or developing squeaks over time. This not only enhances the overall feel of your floors but also protects your investment in your finished flooring material.
