The Dostie Difference: AdvanTech® Subfloor


Dostie Homes takes pride in building a quality home that will last for generations to come. From the materials used to construct the home, to the design selections that complete the look, we strive to use the best products to make a safe, clean and healthy home.

So far, we’ve discussed exterior walls built with ZipSystem®, radiant barrier roof decking, home insulation and James Hardie siding products. Now, let’s bring the focus inside the home. Flooring is important, but more specifically, what’s UNDERNEATH our floors makes a huge difference! From your furniture to your finished floor coverings, everything in your home relies on the subfloor. Replacing your subfloor down the road is expensive, destructive and intrusive, so it’s important to get it right the first time. We are proud to use AdvanTech® subfloor, which allows our homes, and floors, to reach their full potential.

Let’s dive into the engineering behind AdvanTech®:

Highly Compressed Material - High panel density helps reduce the rate of water absorption into the panel, even under the harshest weather conditions. This means your home is protected, even before the roof is constructed!

Moisture-Resistant Resins - Advanced resins reach chemically with the natural moisture in the wood, creating a highly moisture resistant substance similar to polyurethane. So when your children fill up the bathtub all the way to the top and create their own splash waterpark, don’t worry about your subfloor soaking up all that water and deteriorating over time.

Protection Throughout Entire Panel - Every wood strand is coated with advanced moisture resistant resins that provide superior protection, even along freshly cut edges! Unlike OSB (oriented strand board) or plywood which have reputations for frequent swelling and weakening, AdvanTech® engineered floor panels are guaranteed to withstand the elements.

So, what does that mean for you, the homeowner? Well, It’s simple. The stiffer and stronger qualities of AdvanTech® flooring helps to eliminate floor bounce, squeaks and shaking from heavy furniture while maintaining premium moisture protection. And the best part? Advantech® flooring is backed with confidence through the best subfloor warranty available – and it’s transferable to future homeowners!
