Staybull Flooring™ greatly reduces cupping associated with standard wide plank flooring installed over a plywood subfloor. This means that you can install Staybull Flooring™ over a plywood subfloor and have the confidence that your floor will NOT cup like typical wide plank flooring can do. Now you can have the look of a wide plank without the cupping problems, yet still maintain a solid floor that can be sanded and refinished after many years of use. When you purchase a Staybull Floor you are not just buying a floor, you are buying a piece of mind.

Staybull Flooring™ can also be installed over aged concrete slabs. This is a major benefit to people looking for a solid floor who don't like the thin layer of wood on top of typical engineered flooring. Note that installation over fresh slabs could lead to problems with any wood flooring due to the high moisture content of newly poured concrete slabs.
