replacing diagonal 1 bye subfloor


I have a 10 by 12 foot kitchen I took the hardwood floor off of. Underneath that was 1 bye 8 " sub floor that was bad material to start with and now worse than terrible. Can step thru it in several places. This sub floor is of course underneath the outside wall plates and inside wall partitions.

So when replacing it is it best to also orient the plywood on the angle to follow what the corners already do? Otherwise cant stagger the joints cdx and dry ply by much

Going to use 3/4 cdx plywood first and then 3/4 dry ply t&g straight with the joists and the room.

Where it runs under walls will have to cut it off as close as possible to the wall,,do I need to block between the joists for support around the edges and both ends??

forgot


This is all prep work for ceramic tile or composite flooring to be installed over all. guessing will still need cement board underlayment after all this before ceramic tile.

Pictures are always nice.
None of the materials you suggest is what I would use.
Buy or rent a Toe Kick Saw. Home Depot rents them, Northern tools sells a cheap one.
It will cut right up against the bottom plates and under the toe kick under cabinets.
The finish cut in the inside corners can be done with an ossilating saw or a sawsall with a short wide course tooth held at a steep angle.
I'd use 3/4" Advantec subflooring, constrution adhesive on top of the joist, 8D ring shanked nails every 6".
Followed by at least 3/8 subfloor rated underlayment, not attached to the joist, no glue, every 4" on the outside edges, 6 to 8 in the field.
A narrow crown staple gun is the fastest way to install it.
1/4" cement board set in a bed of thin set, then the tile.
