What Should I Use?: Episode 2 – Flooring: Subflooring

Build Show Expert Jake Bruton is back to answer “What Should I Use?” when it comes to floors & subfloors. He discusses the evaluation and selection of different floor framing methods. Additionally, Jake explains the importance of calculating live and dead loads for structural integrity. He presents three mock-ups of floor construction: traditional dimensional lumber, I-joists, and modern trusses; each has pros and cons regarding cost, availability, and utility accommodation. Ultimately, Jake stresses that industry standards, code requirements, and practical criteria like budget and local availability are vital resources to make informed decisions on floor framing methods.
