Radiant subfloor panel choice
This may have already been answered- I scanned through some previous conversations, but didn't find my answer and lost patience after page 5 (of 80...). So sorry for any redundance. I'm working on a project with a very small section of radiant floor (in a new addition. The basement will be underslab, but we need to use subfloor panels upstairs). According to the architectural plans the radiant floor is "for comfort only", since there's also forced air in the new part (this is going to be a nightmare for controls, especially since no one seems to want to coordinate), mais bon. I'm sizing to take the whole load just in case, and will ramp it all down to fit. The real question: radiant subfloor panel options? I've used Quiktrak, Warmboard (R and S) and Sunboard in the past. Quiktrak is quiktrak, 5/16ths is an idiotic diameter that no one carries, so you best not make a mistake in your order 6 months before.... So no. Warmboard is fine, but absurdly expensive for what it is, and every other company seems to have some sort of beef with them (which makes me ask why?). Sunboard is also fine, but their delays are long. Google proposes Ecowarm, which I have never heard of and dont know the price point of. I've never used the Rehau version and have no idea what it costs. I would be interested, but not absolutely invested in something Canadian (It's a good selling point (since I'm in Canada), and also often entails fewer Covid related delays) . I can deal with a certain variation on thickness, anything from 5/8 to 1"1/4 would be fine. On this project the biggest issue is shipping delay. I know the general contractor (to be fair, he's not the only player in this case), and he will wait and wait and wait before giving me any sort of confirmation and then suddenly it will be urgent (and magically my fault). Propositions?
