The open case mouldings were cut much higher than 3/4". Has anyone fixed an issue like this and if yes, how? Shoe moulding seems odd in an open case door frame.
My family has been in the hardwood floor company for 50yrs. If your old floor squeaks take a pencil put a small x on it go and walk the floors and mark them the same. Now get you a name not a ten penny nail . But a small long nail and hammer it in at the x and set the nail do this where ever then get you some saw dust if you have to cut wood the mix the saw dust with a little Elmer glue and fill you nail set. After it dry sand lightly. Just over the nail hole. Then take clear laquar and small art brush pat over this but if it not natural. Stain then use the small paint brush on top of name . That's works every time.
Put a nail on the x. Spot and hammer it in then get a punch to put the nail a little bit under the wood fill hole with saw dust and Elmer glue let it dry lightly Sand , and try to keep it right on the nail area when sanding by hand. Then get a very small paint artist brush and tap it with clear Polly. Let dry do again if your flor are natural if not you can get a touch up marker from lowes and cover the nail put
If you do use a wedge or shims, squirt a little oil in there, too. You can also nail or brad the squeaky boards down. The most important thing is to make sure the floor is not getting wet from below, and that the foundation is protected from moisture. That causes more than a couple of squeaky boards. Jewell
I have Worked on a house built in 1980 and walking in the entry hall way approximately 3-4 feet in hallway you easily make the floor squeak I had the
owner stand in that area and I went in crawl space then asked him to walk back and forth in that area. The floor squeaked and on 1 side of the joist where the hall wall had been nailed to floor the floor moved up and down on the nail that came thru floor and I screwed from inside crawl space up threw sub floor into wall plate in a
couple places maybe 3 then had them walk on floor an squeaks were gone. that was 5 years ago, still quiet. Good Luck.! Tim R.
I have heard that if you find the boards that are rubbing together (that’s what’s causing the squeaking), and shake a little talcum powder or baby powder between those boards, it will eliminate the problem.
I've used both baby powder and cornmeal. It works short term.
Tom Silva, of This Old House has a video, showing use of Squeeks No More. The company also. Has a video. Product works well on older hardwood floors. You can review it to see if it would work on newer click and lock typr floors.
Hello, hope this helps you out, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3iAseVZZKlY
Screw the boards down! or try French chalk or both. Otherwise over lay with MDF.
There are screws that the head breaks off when you screw them in. A few finishing nails would probably. Sprinkling a fine talcum like powder in between the boards helps keep them from squeaking. It doens't work right away. The powder will work its' way in between the boards to keep them from rubbing.
screw your floor tighter
regulate temp and screw them in
That needs to be done from the bottom with screws the board is going up and down on the nail.screws don’t do that ..
Have you tried Talc.
Sprinkle some cornstarch or baby powder.
You could try using talc in the cracks?
