Bathroom Demo 2013


Hi All,

After staring at a broken tile for about a year in the bathroom, I pulled it up to see what was underneath...

The top flooring was cheap tile installed for the prev owners flip, followed by 5 layers, yes, 5 layers of vinyl sheet flooring.

And the odd thing, the flooring got nicer and less dated as I went down...

Under the vinyl was 3/8 plywood which is removed, exposing the sub-floor. I think it looks pretty good, minus the water damage near the toilet.

Thoughts?

Wax gasket or rubber gasket? Is this bathroom in your basement?

No, this is the master bath in the master bedroom, which I use as an office. It had a wax ring.

I have a question which is posted in the Plumbing section if someone here can help.

The toilet is on a 3" ABS line and it had an outside 4x3 closet flange. I read that I can cut off the top of the flange, leaving the rest on the outside of the line and then use a 3" inside flange.

But I also read this would cut off the diameter too much. What can / should I be doing here?
