Cost of installing a subfloor layer 

Note that a subfloor often takes the form of plywood panels, of fiberboard panels or chipboard panels. Subflooring layers contribute to soundproofing and thermal insulation, in addition to blocking humidity and limiting the proliferation of mould. Therefore, your flooring material will avoid experiencing premature deterioration. 

Know that it is sometimes possible to keep the old subfloor, but replacing it is often recommended. In that sense, it will be important to ask the contractors that you meet about the cost of removing and installing a new subfloor. There are too many factors that cause the price to vary for us to present an exact number, so we strongly advise that you ask for quotes.
