During the construction of your new home there are some steps that you take to help ensure that you will not have squeaky floors in the future. In an older home you can lesson a squeak but not necessarily always to able to get rid of it completely. Nonetheless, a squeaky floor is an annoying sound.
What causes the squeak to begin with?
Squeaky floors normally start from below at the subfloor and joist level. Contraction and expansion are at their greatest here. Moisture fluctuates throughout the seasons which cause wood to expand and contract. This can cause nails and wood to become loose.
Possible movement of the underfloor supports and wood flooring could be the cause but not as likely with new home construction.
