Re: Subfloor for tile


I took another look at the floor height and I'm good with it. It won't be as much of a difference I thought there would be.

Because the distance between joists are different for each set in the bathroom, I think I only need to worry about sistering 2 of the joists. I really want tile in this bathroom as I'm not a fan of vinyl planks and I've always wanted tile.

My next question is around the subfloor. Like I said, I have 5/8 t&g osb plywood and have been looking for replacement plywood but everything I find it just shy of 5/8", so I can't find the subfloor that will give me a level floor. Will this be okay since I'm putting 1/2" plywood over? If not, I was thinking of taking everything out and replacing it. The problem is that I don't have a stud at the end of wall to end the plywood onto. The next joist is about 6inches over into the next room so it wouldn't be easy to sister another length of wood since it's far away, but maybe there is something else that can be done?

This place is amazing and thanks so much for the clarification and answers.

Re: Subfloor for tile


When you make repairs to the sub floor you want joints made on a joist or right next to the joist with a 2x4 glued and screwed to the joist.
2X4 blocks glued and screwed on the flat half under the old sheeting will give you something to glue and screw patch to so every joint has full support.
