Re: Rotten Subfloor - Need Help

However I was worried that this plywood wasn't designed for underlayment purposes.

Thanks, I ended up using 1/2 inch sheathing plywood from Home Depot.

Re: Rotten Subfloor - Need Help

It won’t cost me to take it back. I just want to get it right the first time.

Re: Rotten Subfloor - Need Help

Help!

Since this 3/4th inch floor I have isn’t designed to lay on existing subfloor should I take it back and get 1/2 inch plywood?

Re: 7 layers of flooring and possible mold

Hello Shannon, In the second pic (kitchen), this wood floor is the last layer. In the first pic (laundry), there is a hole where you can see the dirt from the ground (the pic is dark because I took it last night around 12:00 am) I haven't yet removed all of the flooring on the right side of that roo...

Re: 7 layers of flooring and possible mold

More pics,

In the first pic, my foot fell through the left corner of the floor. I’m assuming water damage.

Re: 7 layers of flooring and possible mold

Yes, the third pics shows the wood subfloor that I’m trying to get to but it doesn’t look like it’s running diagonal to me, I believe this is the same subfloor that runs in the hallway and bedrooms, I will take additional pics. Yes, there’s a crawl space.

Re: 7 layers of flooring and possible mold

I have all of my safety equipment and I will continue to demo the floor with a crowbar and all muscle since it looks like there isn’t an easier way. Was really hoping the floor scrapper machine would work. I’ve never used a saw before so I’m scared I will cut into the subfloor. As you can see from o...

7 layers of flooring and possible mold

Have been taking up the flooring in the kitchen for the past few days. It started off with (1) ceramic tile, then it was the (2) cement under. Then it was a (3) vinyl floor. Then there was flooring layers (4) - (7) which included more vinyl and other types of flooring that I have no idea what to cal...

Re: Rotten Subfloor - Need Help

Sorry for the low lighting, I was showing another part of the floor that had some sort of patch work done.

Re: Rotten Subfloor - Need Help

Please see the pic of another part of the floor, this is in the dining room, and another reason why I wanted to tear the whole floor up.

Re: Rotten Subfloor - Need Help

Ok,

Do I rent a nail gun? Do I use both glue and nails? What size nails to use on the existing subfloor?

P.S. I will upload another pic that shows some patch work done that looks pretty suspect.

Re: Rotten Subfloor - Need Help

Got it, I will not take this floor up then. Is it ok that I keep the plywood I have already purchased ? I don’t have a truck and would have to pay to take it back to Home Depot. As for install, the floor is currently uneven so that’s why I made the assumption to use the leveler, so how would it be l...

Re: Rotten Subfloor - Need Help

I can only walk in certain areas and if I don't I am sure I'll fall through the floor again. I thought that replacing the whole subfloor would be my best bet, seeing that I would be eliminating this nasty wood.

Re: Rotten Subfloor - Need Help

Hey Mr Spruce, thanks for the reply. My foot actually fell through the floor! I would only assume that its all rotted due to how brittle it is, and how nasty it looks, but I'm no expert. I was planning on pulling all of the floor up and just replacing it with the Plywood that I bought. Is that not a...

Rotten Subfloor - Need Help

Hello everyone, I just purchased my first home, built in 1927. I've ripped up the carpet and the existing floor in the living room and dining room to find out the sub-floor was all rotted. I went to Home Depot and purchased T&G Under-layment Plywood (Scant Face) (Common: 23/32 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft.; A...
