Not sure how many Dricore users are on this forum but ...
I finally decided to use Dricore (or Subflor) chipboard tongue & groove panels for my basement remodeling.
The instructions say to stagger the seams by starting with a whole panel in the corner for the first row, then a half panel followed by whole panels for the next row, then starting with a whole panel for the third row etc.
Does it matter if I cut the panels to stagger the seams at other than 50/50% split, for example starting with a whole (2x2 foot) panel for the first row, starting with a 17 inch panel for the second row, a 9 inch panel for the third row and so on. This way I end up with less wasted material since the last panel on each and every row will be an odd width and I could use the leftover piece from the last panel position on one row to start off the next row.
I do realize that cutting the panels to odd widths will result in cutting through as opposed to between the embossed plastic "feet" on the bottom.
The good conscientious technician or serviceperson will carry extra oils and lubricants in case the new pump did not come with oil or the oil was accidentally spilled, so the service call can be completed without an extra visit.
