I was highly sceptical of Stop Creak. However, I bought the sample and tested it on a couple of areas. It seemed to work. I then invested in the larger pack and, amazingly, it has stopped the majority of the infernal squeaking. Thank you to the inventors — it has saved me from having to take up the entire floor!
I’m not really sure how much this helps, after the 2nd application the flooring is definitely creaking a lot less than what it was but it’s not completely eradicated. The thing is though, I also started using a dehumidifier, so not sure which is helping the most. The 1st application, before the dehumidifier, only seemed to work for a very short time.
I haven't used the product as yet. Our floor was installed in the fall in a park model trailer after it had been climatized for 4 weeks. I find when the temperature is warmer the floor creaks, but when the temperature drops it creaks a lot less. I'm left with trying to decide - Should I apply the product now, when in theory the space between the boards is more than it is in the summer and the creak is less, or should I wait until next summer when the space between the boards is less and the creak is more prevalent? Can you help me?
Did not stop creaking
4 tubes used.... floor still creaking like an absolute B*****D I used it on 40 sq mtrs of 18mm engineered oak click flooring that was fitted 6 months ago!!!!!
Hi Maria - I have checked our records and it appears you bought 2 x 120ml bottles of Stop Creak. We recommend to all customers that you do not any of our larger sizes before you have tried the product. Every floor is different and Stop Creak isn't a magical formula that can fix structural issues with floors. Simply put, Stop Creak is just a lubricant and if your floor still creaks after use then lubrication in the areas where you applied it is not the solution.
Wow to this Product!
I was so amazed on how immediately it stopped the creaks in our guest room! Now I am ready for anyone to come visit! Thank you for making it safe and easy to apply! I can now relax without thinking of removing our 2 year floor. :)
Great product don’t bother reading the bad reviews
Works very well, easy to use. As a carpenter I know floor squeaks can start for numerous reasons, BUT if the squeak is coming from two boards rubbing against each other then this is the stuff to get. Some of the bad reviews I read were absolutely ridiculous, people giving one star for the most stupidest reasons. Personally I think this company is being targeted by flooring manufacturers who’s products now a days are failing miserably even when using the best underlay. These companies want you to purchase a new floor rather than a solution to fix it. There are also idiots who don’t read the description correctly and think this guy is selling a magic potion that will solve squeaks even if it’s the subfloor.
Worked wonders on our laminate locking floors.
My new flooring squeaked and creaked constantly we were going to take it up I bought stop creak which has really helped. Initially I just bought the small one as a tester. I then bought a full bottle which I used liberally and the creaking stopped, after a few weeks it started creaking only in a few places so have now bought the double pack. It does work really well and the creaking goes away completely but I think once it dries out it starts again, I’m more than happy to keep reapplying it every now and then
Great follow up!
So, after I'd had my first go at applying Stop Creak I still had issues with my creaky floor and stated as such with feedback. I was then personally contacted by Stop Creak's founder with the aim of hopefully solving the issues and talking through a few pointers. Having discussed my floor and the product at length I felt confident enough to give it another whirl, which yielded much better results. All in all it's a great, innovative product that's going to cure a lot of woes and it comes with fantastic customer service to boot!
Fantastic - Our floors are silenced!
We have had creaky floors for so long that we forgot what it was like to live in silence. We were sceptical that this product would work because our floors were so bad plus I wasn't sure if the problem was in our subfloor. The instructions were clear and the website does stress that this product will only fix creaks caused by friction in the click floor itself. To our surprise, it appears that our subfloor is fine because with one application the creaking is gone. Great product and cheap if it gets the result we had.
Question for Stop Squeak
Good. But how long does it last?
Hi Gary, it depends on your floor and the climate conditions in your house. For some it's 3 years (and counting) ad for other 6 months. No lubricant lasts forever however, Stop Creak's active lubricant does not dry out in theory it should last a long time.
Bouncy Squeaking Floor.
Amazing product, I had engineered floor fitted to a dodgy subfloor 4 years ago. Nearly eliminated the all creaky, will see how long this last until I need to reapply. 3 weeks in and still no creak.
It worked, nobody could be more surprised than me!
I won't claim it cured all sounds by 100%, but my expectations were low and I was pretty keen to eliminate the squeaks and creaks from our recently fitted Oak engineered flooring. The choices were: 1) go crazy, 2) rip up thousands worth of flooring or 3) give it a try. We gave it a try, and I'm amazed to say that a week on it seems to have done an really good job. around 70 - 80% of the creaks are gone (maybe more), and we are delighted. It looks like weak PVA in a bottle with special "needle" tip. Whatever it is, it worked for us.
Thanks for the review Nigel. Stop Creak is not an adhesive of any sort, it is very much a water based lubricant. While we keep the formula a closely guarded secret, I can tell you that Stop Creak's formula is also used by luxury car manufacturers to keep their dashboards creak-free!
We have been experiencing really loud creaks in our hallway for the last few months and driven to absolute distraction, we purchased a sample of Stop Creak to try in one of the affected areas.. lo and behold - it worked within minutes! It is so easy to apply and in our experience, had an immediate 100% success effect. We are no longer tiptoeing down the hall, trying to avoid the creaky parts - we are thrilled! Thank you Stop Creak!
Saves us thousands on servicing warranties
I am a residential building contractor and we have always had issues with creaky floors soon after tenants move in. We offer a 2 years service warranty with our floors and we often find that when the tenant moves in, they crank up the heating too fast and the floor stretches then contracts out of spec. We have been using Stop Creak to diagnose and fix problem floors for a year now and it has probably saved us around £80,000-110,000 because we have not had to remove or replace floors. We absolutely love this product and all my engineers carry a bottle of it with them when they are on a job. It doesn't work on all floors because as they rightly point out, there can be other issues that cause the floor to creak.
Brilliant but arrived slightly damaged.
I am always very wary about claims of a miracle product, but this stuff is brilliant. Our wooden floor covers the whole ground floor and creaked in several places, but just a few minutes after applying all and the creaks are a thing of the past. I definitely recommend this product. I am only giving 4 stars because one of the bottles was slightly damaged.
Hi Kirsty, Thank you for your review. We are aware of the packaging issue and have made changes to try and prevent this from happening again.
Saved us from replacing our floor.
I don’t usually write reviews. However I love the product... it stopped my wife forcing me to rip out our beautiful Swedish engineered floor and it costing £1,000’s! Before we tried this product we had three different floor fitters including the original installation company give us quotes to fix the floor... would include taking up the floor we had installed as
I ordered a sample because I admit to being a little sceptical, but it does exactly what it says on the tin! Very pleased with the product and speedy delivery.
Thank you so much for this product! It has made such a huge difference and solved a problem that was driving us slowly insane. I would highly recommend.
Better than WD-40 and way safer
Having given up trying talc and WD40 to stop the creaking in our house, I was recommended to this product and am delighted with the results. I followed the instructions to the letter and lo and behold, no creaks. I will be recommending this to everyone. Thank you very much!
