What type of subfloor is this?


What type of subflooring is this? It doesn't look like plywood to me because it almost looks like it is in 3" planks. I know it's hard to see in the picture. Also, any ideas why it would be rotting near the door jam?

I'd guess T&G pine..... possibly hardwood? It rotted because it got/stayed wet right there.
Pull up a register vent grill and see if there's a sub-floor.

Good idea. This is what I see at a register. I pulled the carpet pad back there and it looks like the wood is painted white but it sure does look different than what's in front of the door. This is all in the same room. There are tack strips around the vent so that is what you're seeing on top of the cross section of whatever the subfloor is.

Don't know about the floor, but that sure looks like it could be asbestos tape that was around the register

It's a tack strip for the carpet. Is that what you're talking about?

Hard to tell but it looks like OSB (wafer board).
