One of the products Westwater Construction can use in your new home is Gyp-Crete® Floor Underlayment. It is applied over wood subflooring and concrete. It is often used in condominium, apartments and hotel construction for sound reduction, fire ratings, radiant heating and floor leveling. Using Gyp-Crete in your home will provide those same benefits to you.
Gyp-Crete is a mixture of gypsum, Portland cement, and sand. This type of floor underlayment is one of the most efficient fire and sound control products available for multifamily construction. Standing the test of time since 1972, Gyp-Crete makes for safer, quieter living, and has become a standard in apartments, condominiums, townhomes, luxury homes, hotels, and motels nationwide and abroad.
Benefits of Gyp-Crete
With larger homes like the ones built by Westwater Construction, this can keep noise levels down between kids’ spaces, grownup spaces, and guest spaces. It can also help protect your family during a fire by preventing the fire from spreading as quickly as it would with wood-only flooring. The Gyp-Crete acts as a barrier between floors that gives your family more time to escape. Your beautiful flooring choice will be laid down on top of the Gyp-Crete.
While Gyp-Crete doesn’t add to the aesthetic value of your home, it provides valuable benefits to you and your family. We highly recommend including it in your custom home plans.
