DRICORE® Subfloor Products
DRICORE® is the first and most important step towards creating a new living space as warm and comfortable as any other space in your home.
Why is a Subfloor Important?
The porous nature of concrete will continually absorb and release moisture. If this moisture is trapped, it could lead to mold and mildew growth. Concrete is also cold and hard, making it uncomfortable to walk on. These are some of the reasons you need a subfloor if you are putting a finished floor on top of concrete!

Why DRICORE® Subfloors?
DRICORE® Subfloor is the one-step engineered subfloor solution that is specifically designed for concrete. DRICORE® Subfloor panels have been designed with Air Gap Technology to help keep your floors dry, comfortable and cozy throughout the entire year. The raised panels lift finished floors off the damp, cold concrete to help protect, insulate and cushion your finished floors.
The specially designed subfloor panels create a natural air gap by raising finished floors off the cold, damp concrete. DRICORE® Subfloors help protect finished floors and make them feel warmer and softer to walk on.
Air Gap Technology
DRICORE® has been designed with Air Gap Technology that encourages constant air flow to help protect against moisture emitted from concrete floors, as well as small water leaks.
Makes Floor Feel Warmer
DRICORE® Subfloor panels elevate your finished floors to create a thermal break from the cold concrete floors. Stay comfortable with floors that feel warmer all year round.
Softens Finished Floors
Concrete floors are firm and can be hard on your body over time. DRICORE® Subfloors helps soften finished floors for a more comfortable experience.
