Complete novice here and wanted to know your opinions on the best flooring to use in our new loft conversion upstairs. At the moment we have basic chipboard which is not good and flexing badly with loads of creaks. We were looking at t&g chipboard but wanted to best option and lowest cost which dont normally go together! Any ideas anyone?
Thanks so much for the reply. The main problem is that the floorboards arent good and are not butted together - a few have holes around the edges (these are the really old floorboards from before we converted). We definately need to replace but not quite sure where to start with materials - we hear good and bad things about t&g. Any advice would be really appreciated.
