    Hi over the last couple of weeks I've suddenly noticed loads of floorboards becoming squeaky . It's both upstairs and downstairs , am I just unlucky or could it be related to weather or something else ?

    It's been very dry, so they could have shrunk a bit. How are they today? (It's been lashing it down round here this afternoon)

    What type of boards are they? (Softwood, ply chipboard, t&g chipboard, etc) Also, are they screwed or nailed? If nailed, are the nails oval nails or round head (including clipped round)?
