Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to work with, easy to transport. Pros: - Easy to transport - we purchased 50 panels at a time which fit into our hatchback - total project was about 1200 sq.ft. or 300 panels which worked for us being close to HomeDepot. - Quick and easy installation. - Finished floor is significantly warmer and more comfortable under foot. Cons/watch out for: - Had to watch for damaged tongue & grooved edges. Some were still usable, others were not. Install Tip: The shims which are part of the system work great for low spots but I found that for localized high spots in the concrete I preferred to shave or cut down the insulation backing slightly to get a level top surface.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very poor quality, delaminates I was fortunate to purchase this right before the prices went up an extra $2 per sheet, but the quality is atrocious. I helped my neighbour fit his a couple of weeks prior to mine and he had the darker version which was perfect, mine however (the lighter style), aren’t flat on top, and delaminates as soon as it was cut and is so poorly made it defy belief that it would pass any QC. I didn’t have the option of taking it back for a refund as I had to get it delivered due to the sheer quantity needed and I don’t have a means of returning it myself, so I just hope it doesn’t affect the flooring I eventually install

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fast and Easy Way to Install a Subfloor, but... This is still a good product to get a subfloor down easily and quickly and makes any room with a concrete floor feel warmer. It's about the same price as laying dI've installed both types of subfloor, and there is no doubt that you can install a subfloor much faster with Dricore. I took off two stars; one star because the newer panels do not work with older panels (I had some older panels left over from a previous job), and the second star because the finish on the OSB appears to be downgraded. Older panels appear to have a semi-gloss, urethane-like finish. The newer panels have a matt finish that looks, well, "cheap".own a traditional insulated subfloor (rigid insulation, sleepers, plywood) but much easier to handle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dri-core - not as good as it used to be Had to use these as they met up best with the first version of dricore. Odd that they changed the profile. These panels are not as well glued together as they used to be, are more fragile. I wish dricore had kept up their quality instead of charging more for cheaper construction and less material than the initial product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra cost worth the time saved. This is the 2nd time I've used Dricore products on a basement renovation and I couldn't be happier. I priced out doing a traditional sleeper, foam board and plywood vs. Dricore and found that it was about 20 cents more per square foot to do Dricore R+. In my opinion, the time savings alone is well worth going the Dricore route, despite an additional cost. Panels are easy to maneuver, can be laid quickly, can be cut easily, and provide a finished subfloor in a fraction of the time that it would take to do the traditional method for a basement subfloor. I've already noticed a huge difference in how it feels temperature-wise in the basement - especially on some of the cold winter days we had in early January. If I ever do a basement renovation again, I'll be using this product 100%

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very promising Easily installed. Feels good underfoot. Accommodates the bumps and dips of my 70-year old basement floor. I was able to modify the panels for obstructions (e.g. telepost, water meter). Shims functioned as expected. (I have only one quibble: to accommodate the upcoming carpet installation, I screwed down every other panel along the perimeter, plus the room's centre panel. Now, whenever I step on the highest area in the floor, the panels there feel 'squishy,' as if I hadn't shimmed them enough. Maybe, with the increased house humidity of summer, the panels have expanded slightly; and with the perimeter screwed down instead of floating, the floor has buckled upwards ever so slightly.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dricore R+ Good Product Easy to lay down. Completed a 300 sq. ft in about 10 hours. Our basement required many complex cuts, but skill saw worked great. Had a ridge running down the middle of the room and just carved out material on bottom to keep the floor level. Worked like a charm! Has increased the comfort of our basement a great deal.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Change in quality The change in quality for the foam polymer is disgusting. Not only that, the alignment of the foam is off and i had to cut off the foam edges. This was significantly time consuming. This is very disappointing

how many tiles would it take for a 10x10 floor if using your dricore subfloor 23x23 tiles

Asked by: matthew
10 feet sq? If so, that’s 120 inches each way. Or 5 plus panels each way. 36 ought to do it.

Hello. I'm finishing a basement. The perimeter is already framed and sheet rocked. Could I install all floor panels first before erecting the partition walls? Would there be an issue with the weight?

Asked by: Roscoe
Per the manufacturer: Stud walls can be set right on top of your new DRICORE subfloor. Install your 2X4 walls directly on top of the DRICORE panels, measuring for a snug fit between the panels and ceiling. Once the walls are framed and in position, simply screw the bottom plates of the 2X4 wall to the DRICORE panels, using 2" wood screws. To finish the anchoring process, we suggest pinning the bottom plate to the concrete floor using either 3" concrete nails or self-tapping concrete fasteners. Only minimal fastening to the concrete is required. For example, on an 8 foot length of wall, you would require only 2 fastening points (one at both ends). Again, only minimal fastening to concrete is required. Too many fastening points breaking through the polyethylene moisture barrier may defeat the moisture resistant benefit of the DRICORE subfloor system. NOTE: If you are planning to use metal studs in place of wood, the base track for the studs should be affixed to the DRICORE panels with wood screws. Metal stud base plates should be anchored to panels every 2ft when installing over DRICORE panels. As above, 2 fasteners should penetrate the panel and go into concrete, securing the wall into place.

Can you put a 6mil vapour barrier under dricore on a non insulated wood subfloor to reduce drafts or is it not necessary?

Asked by: Matt
Not necessary.   I put an underlay with vapour barrier on top of this product before adding my flooring though.

Is there any vapor barrier component with the R+ Insulated subfloor, as there is with the other Dricore subfloor that has the black polystyrene backing?

Asked by: HarbourDog
Yes. The XPS foam on the bottom of our DRICORE R+ panels crushes together at the seams to create an effective vapour barrier.

I have an unfinished work shop in the basement . I have a table saw and a planer also drill press can I use this product under this equipment.

Asked by: Ale40
DRICORE Subfloor R+ panels can support up to 3,153lbs/sq.ft. (21.89psi). Panels under vibrating machines should be fastened. We recommend flat head 2-1/4 x ¼” Concrete screws (ie: Tapcon) and a 4-1/2 x 3/16” Drill bit to bore the holes. If you select to use the panels as your finished floor, we recommend sealing the panels within two weeks of installation to protect the system. The most popular application over our panels is a polyurethane. If you want to achieve a smooth finish on the new panels, you can do so by sanding them before you seal them. To properly sand the panels, you would first require an 80 grit to get through the “screen” texture of our OSB, then proceed with a 120 grit to reach a smooth finish. You can then apply your polyurethane /paint etc…

I am finishing a basement and the outside walls are not frame, do I place the wall on top of the dricore R+ and how do I secure the wall? Do I drill through the 2x4 and dricore panel with cement screws?

Asked by: Golanul
You can do either way, you can secure the floor first, and then butt the dricore up against the walls, or lay the dri-core first and then secure the ends of the wall sills with concrete screws and then screw the rest of the wall sills just into the panels.

How many panels are on a pallet of panels? I will be picking them up by myself and would like to get an un-opened pallet so they are tied down together.

Asked by: Home
There is 100 on a pallet (4 stacks of 25) I was confused when I ordered 200, and they gave me two full skids, plus 10 loose on top (how does 190 make even stacks of 4?) Anyways, after lugging them down to my basement I counted and there were 210 total.
