Subfloor question (tile, hardwood & carpet)
I am having new floors put in. I really like the company I am working with but I want to check their methods.
If I pull up a floor register I see I have two 3/4" subfloors.
In the bedrooms I am having carpet installed with a thick durable pad. I am worried about the door clearances.
In the bathrooms I am having tile installed and I know they will be using 1/2" concrete board under the tile. I am worried about the toilet flange
I am having solid hardwood install everywhere else. I am not removing the kitchen cabinets so I am worried about how to deal with the dishwasher and stove.
I think they should take off one layer of subfloor and cut around the kitchen cabinets. I think all my concerns would be solved if they did remove the top layer of subfloor.
What are your thoughts?

There is no need for 1/2" tile board, 1/4 is used for floors, 1/2" is for walls.
The stoves not going to be the issue, if they run real hardwood flooring under the dishwasher, that in 99% of the cases is going to be an issue, it's just not going to fit. Personaly I'd never suggest hardwood in a kitchen.
Water damage, and a wear issue at the sink come to mind.
You really need to be talking to the company your working with about these issues, not us.
Make then show you how adding 3/4 to the subflooring you have now is ever going to work out with a dish washer.
