How We Test Subflooring
Huber Engineered Woods is rigorous when it comes to product testing, especially when comparing AdvanTech® engineered subflooring to the competition. From daily performance testing at each mill to periodic testing at our research and development lab to annual testing with a third-party IAS accredited facility, AdvanTech flooring and competing products are put through the gauntlet to determine the best subflooring products. We collect product from all over the country and then we bend it, break it, pull it, soak it, dry it and destroy it to ensure you're getting the flat out best when you build with AdvanTech engineered subflooring.
Why We Test Subflooring
AdvanTech engineered subflooring has been voted #1 in quality1 for 8 consecutive years and counting. That doesn't happen by accident. We put a stake in the ground to be #1 and the only way to stay there is to constantly test and innovate. In addition, we recognize, appreciate and never forget the trust that builders, homeowners, retailers and architect have in our products and we'll do whatever it takes to produce the best subflooring and keep that trust firmly in place.
