Is all chipboard flooring created equal?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

The floors are due to go down end of the week and I have been calling about merchants checking prices. I have seen Caberboard and Egger mentioned here a lot but one of the local merchants is able to supply Kronospan - 22mm P5 /moisture resistant at 40p pence cheaper than some of the places further afield. The advantage is if I need any extras I can pick them up locally rather than a place further afield but the saving works out at circa £40 so not a big deal if I go for the 'known' brand.

 

I think it should be fine going with the Kronospan and maybe I am over thinking this?

Roof on (or will be by the time floor is laid at end of the week). 

If it’s not open to the elements A plain 22 mil is fine 

If you roll paper protection out before the studs go down and tape the joints 

It will keep It  like new till the wet trades have finished

Not sure on the exact name (and can't see anything on their website that might help) but its labeled as 2.4 x 0.6 22mm moisture resistant chipboard flooring.
