Choosing The Right Subfloor

If you're building a new home, you may know that you have choices with what subfloor product is used. Different products come with different benefits and costs.

What is a subfloor?

A subfloor is a layer of material that is installed directly over the structural floor joists of a building, to provide a smooth, flat, and stable surface for the finished flooring to be installed on top of. The subfloor is typically made of plywood or oriented strand board (OSB), and is designed to add strength and stability to the floor structure, as well as to provide a base for the finished flooring. The subfloor is also important for creating a level surface for the finished flooring to be installed on, which can help prevent issues such as sagging or unevenness in the floor.

For our 5 newest homes in progress in Empire, Michigan we chose LP TopNotch subfloor.

But what exactly is LP TopNotch subfloor, and what makes it such a great choice for your home? In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at LP TopNotch subfloor and its benefits.
