Subflooring is part of the substructure. It is underneath the flooring in your home. The subfloor is usually constructed from 1 by 4 or 1 by 6 lumber or plywood panels. When using lumber, the panels are laid diagonally across joists & when using plywood the boards are laid in a staggered fashion, with the ends & edges butted together & the panels nailed to the joists. The whole purpose of the sub floor is to support the central floor, or main floor.
 
The four types of subfloor are plywood (which was mentioned before), plank sub flooring, oriented strand board sub flooring & concrete slabs. Each one of the prior subfloors would be used depending on what type of floor you would like to install. The common floors include 3/4 thick solid wood flooring, engineered wood flooring, floating wood floors & laminate flooring. In some cases, you can even add on new sub floors in place of old ones, as long as you properly add the underlayments needed & remove the old tiles first.
 
At the end, walk around across the entire floor. Check for uneven areas, squeaks & all else. See if it's a floor that looks & feels well-finished!

Perfect Plywood Underlayment – Types of Screws
To ensure the bearings on your floors are doing their job, holding up their full weight without any unwanted creaking, cracking, or anything else, you'll want to secure those floor joists properly. & this all deals with your subfloor area, of course. Let's have a closer look at how you can get those screws in there “just right” & some further information on the matter.
 
How Does Each Screw Function?
First of all, you should know that we've generally got two kinds of screw to choose from, for this type of job : regular steel screws & galvanized steel screws. #8 screws, #10 screws & #12 screws are ideal for when it comes to 3/4-inch plywood, the goal being to securing it correctly onto those floor joists the first time around.
 
Screw Head Options
There are multiple kinds of screw heads. Each screw head, in turn, will usually come indented to allow the drill head used with it, if it's the right match, to put some torque onto that screw.
 
Efficiency
This, as you can imagine, helps the overall process to go more smoothly & efficiently as one drills right into the plywood.
 
Budget
You can pick up a box of screws, generically speaking, for about as low as $2 per box of 100 screws or so. The price may rise to even $150, for more quantity & higher quality. For screw heads, expect to pay from about $5 to $110 for a box. Sales taxes have not been factored into the final costs.
