i was sitting on the fence between dricore and barricade. then while on the fence someone yelled, trycore! Its a different solution but worth a gander if you dont want osb down i suppose.

Tyroc sounds interesting. I also know of another similar product coming down the pipe from a Canadian manufacturer. You can also put down carpet right over top. The only thing negative I can say about both this new product and Tyroc, is I don't see very deep dimples, so I worry that water and air won't move as freely below as with DeltaFL or Dricore, or even Barricade. The trade-off is total height of subfloor. Of course, if you use 1" extruded polystyrene, you'll get almost no airflow.

For the cottage I used DeltaFL floating with laminate foam and laminate on top, and had some clicking in one area. Not too bad. I think for this home, which has been dry for the first two years, I may go with a product like Tyroc or the new stuff I've seen.

I am leaning towards barricade. I believe its similar in price to the tyroc and dricore but with added R value. The only appeal of tyroc to me was its ease on installation. I would rather spend more time installing a warmer floor. tyroc is lower profile and good if you dont want to raise the floor too much.

check out the platon option - likely much cheaper for the drainage layer.

also you could do foam sheets on top if you wanted to.

G2N is right - much cheaper.

When you think about it, a Barricade tile is $7.19 and it takes 8 of them to equal a 4x8 sheet of plywood or aspenite.

My point is, in 4x8 sheets, the barricade tile is about $60 a pop.

Having said that, it goes down extremely fast and I've had no complaints installing it. Would probably pay the premium again - but I'm lazy

Im going with barricade. Now, can I frame non load bearing walls on barricade? What are the pros and cons of doing subfloor before walls. Im thinking of doing the floor first then frame.
