I'm guessing i could just put in a brown colored caulk between the tub and last board? what kind of gap is recommend with hardwood 1/4"? thanks for your response.

Manufacturer's installation instructions should provide a recommendation for expansion gap size. Good idea to heed it.....especially in a bathroom where there could be a water accident from the tub or toilet.

Re: hardwood flooring install


going the tiling route if i can. in the attached photo the two lines represent the joist. when i step behind the flange there is a bit of give under foot. the next joist is about 5" under the drywall which i'm thinking i could get to if i cut out along the green lines and maybe 6" out from tub. if i can put 1 or two supports in and patch the hole, then i should be good to put additional ply on top.
i'm not sure if just putting additional ply on top will take out enough deflection. the subfloor is 1/2"

Re: hardwood flooring install


You had the correct idea to stop moisture from a crawl space into the bathroom, as you said "sealer" against wood floors. Better yet is to use a low perm rated sheet goods- not tar paper (5-30 perms)- but eg.- less than 1 perm; https://www.fortifiber.com/wp-conten..._aquabar_b.pdf

Are you sure there is not another joist- 4" out from the wall (w, toilet supply valve), that is 16" from the plywood joint towards said wall? Notice the rusty nails there...

Why are you replacing the existing ply rather than add some more to stiffen it?
How high do you need to add once you decide on which product to use?

toilet flange and tile floor


Hello,
my tile floor will sit a little less that 1/4" above old toilet flange. im guessing there is some type of adapter that would sit on top of existing flange that would raise the top lip even with tile?

also i need to replace the bolts that hold the toilet secure. i'm guessing those come with the new toilet? is it necessary to put the bolts in prior to putting CB down or can these be added after CB is down? i know the existing bolts have to be fed in from under the flange lip as the flat piece on the bottom of the bolt wont fit in from the top. wasn't sure if the newer bolts have a thinner flat base that allows them to me put in from top.


thanks
