New floors, damaged sub

Post by Firstrenodebacle » Sat Nov 30, 2019 10:18 pm

Hey guys, I am renovation a 1973 brick ranch style. The house has become a lot of work and needs a lot of repairs before we can even worry about updating and finishing everything else. My current problem is the subfloor in the kitchen. Many water marks and spots where the particle board underlayment has eroded. Wobbly areas, uneven and sloping areas. I don’t even know where to start. Any suggestions?

Ok. Do you know if it was common to use that particle board underlayment in the 70s? I haven’t seen that before
