Ozark Hardwood Flooring located in Marshall, AR. (870) 448-5775

Marshall is a ways from Hot Springs, but I've found that wood floor professionals often cover quite an area.

Tell Lee I sent ya.

In 24 years, I have never seen a home with 1/2" plywood subfloor covered with 3/4" p. board underlayment. Is this common in other parts of our great country? Just wondering!


From central Pennsylvania here and it is very common to find homes with 1/2 inch ply and 5/8 or 3/4 particle board on top. If not then its just a 3/4 t/g ply subfloor. The 1/2 ply with 5/8 particle board was very common building practice in the late 60's through mid 80's. Now its more 3/4 tg plywood. Generally around here the only floors built with only a 3/4 particle board subfloor are the modulars or trailers.

Grisby,
Thanks for the info! I thought that must be the case. I must say, I don't understand the logic in doing that. Any cost savings from using 1/2" instead of 3/4" would be eatin up by the particle board installation. Glad to hear that this practice is no longer used.

No problem. Heck if I had known then what I know now, my house would not of been built that way. Now every time I put in hardwood or ceramic/porcelain in a room, I have to rip out the particle board to lay another layer of ply on top of the existing ply.

Very simple. Use Elastion self-adhesive underlay. It gives you the advantages of a floating floor when using real hardwood. Your quality, solid, hardwood floor will go down quicker, can go over particle board, and mitigates many of the problems of nailed floors.
