I have number of questions asked of me about dining room floors, shell how do I take the bounce out of my dining room floor. Every time I walk across it the China cabinet bouncing and rattling not to say with the embarrassment I have when I have a company in but what about the aggravation that we have every time we walk through the dining room. Come on down stair and show how to repair that. Now let me show you what happens when the bounce takes place so I can show you with a piece of one by three strapping like wedging in underneath the joist and then we have Mike up stairs our producer and we will see when he bounces the floor. Now you can see the deflection in that piece of one by three, showing that there is enough twist and moving in that joist giving that bounce.
Now in order to take that bounce out what I am going to do, I am going to take one by three strapping. I am going to strap the ceiling at 12 inch centers coming up off the wall 12 inches in every 12 inches I am going to get a piece one by three strapping in place. That way we are actually forming a whole box frame with sub floor above the joist and then the one by three strapping giving that floor lots of rigid strength so lets get at the installation. Now some folks will put dry roll right on the under side of the joist that is not thing to do. Because you are not taking the bounce out and when you, do not take the bounce out you just going to have nail pops after nail pops. So always the one by three then the dry wall and then the finishing and it gives you a real good finish ceiling. There you have it folks it all rattle and roll is gone no more aggravating noises come out of that China Cabinet back there not they say the embarrassment when you have those neighbor’s in as well. You know it is just as easy as putting those straps in the right place and screwing to the under side of the joist. Why you do not give it a try?
