Floorboards Squeeking After Fitting new Screws

Postby slates » Tue Feb 12, 2019 10:48 pm


Had room replastered, just finished painting and skirting and wanted to care of a few floorboards squeeks before getting the new carpet fitted. Used A LOT of Floor Tite screws to screw boards into joists. Worked in other rooms, in this room it's made no difference at all.

I've checked to make sure I'm screwing into a joist, no access from underneath, starting to wonder if the joist itself is the issue. Any suggestions welcome. All I can think is to unscrew everything and start again.

Thanks in advance.
