Subfloors


Is it any better to put down two layers of 3/4" plywood or is it better to put down one sheet of 1 1/2". I have to have it that thick to match the floor height of the other room?

Is there an advantage to gluing and screwing instead of just screwing?

Also, what is the proper distance between screws?

I have never seen 1 1/2" plywood.

It was a mis quote. It is actually 1 1/8" tongue n groove. I decided on the 3/4".

What's the finished floor covering going to be? Have you considered that thickness?
