Re: Subfloor comments and recommendations?

I'm sure they'll come up with some "scientific" reason to push people towards FL.

Of course they will. Something like it may give off obnoxious odors which would not be an issue out doors but would be as a subfloor.

Delta MS VS. Delta FL
I broke down the relevant parts (excluded dimensions).

I put a red box at the superior factors of FL.
Basically, it is ever so slightly more permeable for water vapors (20 ng vs 22 ng, whatever that means) and isn't smelly or allergenic!!

Yeah.. no I'm not going to pay double for DeltaFL.
That stuff is under a layer of XPS and a layer of plywood. If I get allergic or smell something from it, then it's pretty nasty.
However the roll has been sitting in my basement for a couple of months now and really I smell nothing (I sniffed it up close too!).

I assume nanograms. Strikes me as being pretty insignificant.

Maybe I am just looking inthe wrong place, but looking at the spycor web site, FL is $.59/sq foot, MS is $.53/sq foot, and platon is $.49/sq foot. For my project it would only be a $51 difference between FL and platon. Hardly double the price.

Maybe pricing is different where you are.

Especially since
22ng = 0.3845 US perm
20ng = 0.3496 US perm

Where DeltaFL and DeltaMS are available in store:

$170 - roll of MS (6.6 x 65.6' = 433 sqft) = $0.393/sqft
$70 -- Roll of RL (3.5' x 30' = 105 sqft) = $0.67/sqft

Though it depends on if you can buy in the biggest quantity roll without too much left-over.
For me, I measured exactly how my roll would go and I am very lucky because I end up with only 30 sqft left-over.

Ok.. I have not found it in store anywhere around here. So it could be it is in store in QC but not the states. Or at least in my area.

It's not in the states. If you go to their website they tell you to special order from Lowes or by from the spycor website.

How nice. This country is being run by a broken record repeating the same two words over and over. Cretin.

Platon is just as good, guys.
Buy whatever is close to you, delta or platon, doesn't matter.

Thanks for all the info. I just called the local Lowes and they sell the 42"x30' roll for $49.38 which is $.47/sq foot. If I ordered today, which I am not, it would be in by the 11th. So not too bad of a turn around.

I would rather have the wider roll so I didn't have so many seams. But that isn't a big stickler.
