I am considering using tyroc as a subfloor as it is only 1/2" thick for my basement.

Has anyone used this before?

Hi Michael,

We have never used Tyroc subflooring before, but since your post I have taken the time to research it and it seems like a fantastic product that we will definitely try out.

I am kind of shocked as Home Hardware is a carrier of it and we deal with them regularly, in fact they even filmed their commercial at one of our job sites and they have never mentioned it!

I was suprised about its ability to be used as a substrate for ceramic tile installations due to its flexibility and the fact that it follows the contours of the floor below, however it has passed all of the testing by the Tile Council of North America.

Looks like a fantastic product.

Best of luck.

I am heading to HH in Milton this weekend. Since they carry it, I am also ordering drywall so they can deliver everything for $50.00.

Good Morning Michael,

I would be interested in hearing about how the product performs, installation, etc after you do the install.

Could you keep us updated?

Just might use this for our next basement project

We installed this product a few years ago and have had a terrible experience with it. We installed it per manufacturer instructions and recommended adhesives. Since then, it has separated in areas and the material is unstable enough that it lifts or curls in turn lifting the carpet above it. We were promised help from the U.S. representative after sending in photos. That was a year ago. They will not respond to our requests for help under the supposed thirty year warranty.

An update as of 2/4/16: "unfortunately any Tyroc Subflooring product sold before October 1, 2015 falls under the warranty offered by Bjet Products Inc. a Canadian company. Bjet Products Inc., a Canadian company filed bankruptcy May 15, 2015. This company has no assets to honor warranties for Tyroc Subflooring product sold on or before October 1, 2015."

We alerted their VP of sales to our subfloor problems long before the October 1, 2015 date. He promised us help. I wouldn't buy this product if you don't want to experience the same.
