    Bad loft conversion where chipwood sheets have been used instead of T and G boards.

    Sqeake like any thing. Adding screws to sheets only seems to make things worse Any easy solutions

    perhaps the joists are moving too much

    Could be the edges of the sheets rubbing together. I'd be tempted to run a circular saw along all the joints to open them up a bit, but watch your depth setting!!

    if you do this you have to watch out for the realy cheapskate installation where none of the chipborad joints are supported over a joist

    An old trick that used to cure sqeaking floorboards was to put talcum powder on the joint.
