    Hi all after a little advice

    We had a loft conversion in our bungalow. We have 2 bedrooms and a bathroom up there. Was done a year ago with BC sign off etc.

    Last few months the floor has got so noisy when walking around up there. Creaks all over the place. Have pulled carpet back and put some more floor screws in but no difference.

    Any advice?
     
  2. I'd call the builders and discuss it with them; it's shouldn't be a one year warranty situation.

  5. Did you put screws into floorboards, or chipboard. If the latter, then it possibly wan't glued, but that's not to say that it needed to be. Can you tell the type of nails or screws they used.
