Question

Second story sub flooring replacement


Hello,
My wife and I are wanting to replace the OSB in one of our bedrooms due to cat accidents. My questions are, how close should we cut the sub flooring to the interior walls? And, what tool would be the best to use to cut along the walls?

Thanks for any advise.

Mark

How bad is the subflooring? If it's just stained and stinky it can be sealed with Zinzer 123 primer.
If it needs to go then your going to need a Tow Kick saw and an ossilating saw.
Tow kicks can be rented from Home Depot or Northern Tool sells a cheap copy.
Once the outsides are made make cuts between the foor joist with a ciruler saw to break it up into smaller sections.

Replace what you have with Advantech 3/4" T & G with constrution adhesive on the joist and use ceramic coated decking screws to install it.
Advantech is far more water resitant then plywood or OSB.

To make it far easer to remove the old subfloor buy one of these.
Northern tool stocks then and there also avalible on Amazon.com.

It's pretty bad. My wife sealed it with a paint sealant, and when the temp out side warms up, you can really smell it! So, cut as close to the wall as possible?

Remove the 1/4 round and a Toe kick can cut it flush with the baseboard.
May have to add some blocking to support the new subfloor along two of the walls.

I will do that. It's prepped, and ready to go. Thank you for the ideas on tools, and work. Really appreciate it. Happy Easter!
