screwed & glued floors?

    The "Included Features" list for Courtyard Homes at Longleaf includes "T & G subfloor, screwed & glued". Did they do the gluing portion on anyone's home?

    I looked through tons of pictures I took and I was told to look for glue overspill at the trusses (looking from 1st floor up toward 2nd floor's floor). I can't find anything of that nature but maybe I'm not looking for the right thing. Anyone know what to look for?

    Reason I ask is because we have lots of noises in lots of places on the 2nd floor. Popping noises can be heard as we walk around (most seem to be coming from near interior & exterior walls).

    Thanks!

    If my Ryan home was advertised as screwed and glued, I didn't notice. However, my unfinished basement floor had many glue droppings that I scraped up before staining the floor and I can see excess glue along the floor trusses. So, I would have to say there should be some evidence of gluing along the trusses if it was done.

    Thanks for the response & info!

    I should also add that the "Included Features List" I mentioned was from Van Metre sales. I have it scanned if anyone wants it (just email me).

    The questions still apply to any builder.

    I spoke with VM construction superintendent Paul Hoopenberger a couple days ago and he said that the "Included Features List" was correct--all those homes should have screwed & glued floors. I'm still not seeing any signs of that in any of the during-construction pictures I took but I'll keep looking...
