“My wife and I hired a general contractor to finish our unfinshed basement in our newly built home. In order to save money I decided that I would handle the subfloor and floor installation in order to save labour costs and we would leave all the rest (framing, electrical, plumbing, drywall etc) to the pros. We spent a few weeks going back and forth between DriCore and DMX 1-Step for our subfloor. After many trips to Home Depot and lots of online research we chose to go with DMX 1-Step, and I am so glad we did. Not only is this product the best cost/sq foot in subflooring it is by far the easiest to install! Aside from the easy installation I think the number 1 selling pioint of this product, (aside from all of its great properties) is that there is almost NO WASTE when installing. Every scrap piece of DMX 1-Step™ that I had left over from cuts I was able to use in a differnt area. We had a few tricky angles from the overall design and yet all I needed to install this subfloor was an exacto knife. I installed 12mm laminate flooring on top of the DMX and we could not be happier with the look and feel of our new basement floor.
