Without hearing the noise first hand, it is difficult to know exactly the source. Do the areas that "creak" also appear to move (depress) when you walk on them? If the movement is excessive, it could be the subfloor has a low area beneath.

Generally speaking, any noise caused by the interlocking tabs moving against one another will be eliminated after the grout is installed.

If you have a digital camera that can take movies with sound, please email a clip to jonathan.mcintosh@avairefloors.com and I will listen and try to diagnose the sound. Also, send us a picture when you are done!

creaking sound

I have laid all the tile in a foyer area that connects to a bathroon and hallway to a mudroom. It looks great. It has been down for 3 days and is making creaking noise like the plastic joints move when I walk on some of them. It did not do this at first. I only had to use a floor leveling compound in front of the stairs. Will the creaking stop when I cover the joints with grout? If not what can I do about the creaking?
