DAP DynaGrip Advanced Subfloor Adhesive Video Review

DAP DynaGrip advanced subfloor adhesive

DAP DynaGrip Advanced Subfloor Adhesive makes some pretty bold claims – particularly the ability to work on wet, frozen, and treated lumber. When DAP told us their new DynaGrip Advanced Subfloor Adhesive could be applied at near-freezing temperatures, we decided to have a go at it.

I needed to work on some subfloor repair following the discovery of an electrical installation that isn’t up to code (read: bonehead move by the installer).  After giving a couple tubes a night in the freezer, I brought the DAP DynaGrip Advanced Subfloor Adhesive up to finish the work. I live in Central Florida and while some of you still remember the last snow, it’s been in the mid-90’s for a couple weeks here. So the only way to test the freezing claim is to artificially create the condition.

As it turns out, even freezing the tubes didn’t stop the adhesive from flowing. It really is easy to gun in cold temperatures. Not only did it flow smoothly from the tube – it got rid of any hint of squeaks from this section of 3/4-inch plywood flooring.
