Title: Structural Noise from Floorboards
Post by: Rhatam on March 13, 2019, 06:29:16 AM
 I live in a condo with neighbors above me who have carpeting and underlayment but I still continue to hear loud squeaking noise when they step on certain parts of the subfloor making me think the subfloor has separated from the joists. Unfortunately there is no way for me to easily secure the subfloor back to the joist from their side because there is a layer of soft concrete above the plywood subfloor. Is there a way from my side above my ceiling drywall to minimize this effect my pulling and securing the subfloor to the joist from beneath. Something that would minimize the up and down effect from compression from foot fall?

you need to toenail screw into joist from below. Use the right size screws.
