What is Gyp-Crete?

Gyp-Crete is a mixture of gypsum, sand, and other additives that create a pourable fluid when mixed with water. It is valued in construction for its lightness, sound- and fire-reducing qualities, and ability to even out rough or uneven subfloors.

How is Gyp-Crete different from regular cement?

The two biggest differences are that Gyp-Crete is much lighter than cement and is significantly better at reducing sound, making it ideal for multi-story buildings. It also has a faster drying time than traditional cement.

Are there limitations to what kind of flooring I can install over Gyp-Crete?

Gyp-Crete creates a smooth and level surface once it’s dry, making it compatible with virtually any flooring, including tile, hardwood, laminate, vinyl, and carpet.
