I can assure you they don't use Advantech to keep me happy. They also don't usually shop at the big box. These are quality-minded builders that have had too many issues with a lot of the big box materials. I think they are convinced a better grade of material is available from a real lumber yard.

Real lumber yards is all I know the closest Box to me is a hr.+ away. I’m all for quality materials as I’m sure Advantech is but have never seen that product used here. The new stuff usually has been out East for a few years before West gets it, and that’s just fine with me, let you guys be the test. You’ll never here me pitch OSB but yet all “real lumber yards” stock it. And to say if you don’t build with anything but Advantech means your not “quality-minded” is …….. America was built with CDX. Can’t wait for the 15 year review on the “Zip System”.

I looked high and low in this thread and I don' see where anyone has said that.

So far the Advantech recommendation is the consensus - that's all.

Hold on Treerat.....just consider,you probably have already, but what about a concrete floor if your close to grade? If your planning on a ceramic tile floor, it may be the way to go.All depends how far from the dirt you are, and how cold of climate your in, and your ability to get a slick finish. Just a thought.

I've seen some Advantech take quite a beating with spring rains with virtually

no effect .
