I am mid-renovation of a bathroom, yesterday pulled out the toilet and the tile floor. The subfloor layers - both the plywood and whatever it is underneath - were not cut very clean by the previous installer, so the toilet flange does not screw down very well. It also looks like there had been some minor water damage at some point, though not enough that the floor is rotten. I'm trying to avoid replacing the subfloor, and am wondering if there is anything that I can put in there to fill the gaps and also grab the screws on the toilet flange. Ideally some kind of wood filler, but I'm not sure if that's a feasible option. Also was thinking of larger diameter screws, but I don't know if that would work either. Again, I don't really want to pull out the floor if there's an alternative, as I don't think the wood is bad. Any suggestions?
