We have a silent floor in our 3 year old house that is not so silent in a particular area of the kitchen. We are unsure of exactly what the problem is. Our builder said that it is likely a problem with the tile being too tight to the island. However, if we step on a particular spot on one side of the island we can hear the noise on the other side. We do have access to the floor from our unfinished basement.

We are unsure if we should try some do-it-yourself fixes or call someone in to diagnose the exact problem? Who would be the best professional to contact about this?

Thank you in advance!

I would call a pro, espectially if you dont know what you are doing.

Floor squeaking/noise can come from joists, subfloor, or the flooring system, and have varrying causes.

The best person would be to contact a floor coverings inspector for your flooring type.

They can diagnose the issue and possibly offer repair assistance.

This link will point you in the right direction to finding one near you.


There are two ways to do any job. The right way and the wrong way. Do it right everytime.
