worn wooden floor

Postby mustdo » Thu Apr 19, 2012 1:30 pm

trying to do our bathroom up and lay vynl cushionair floor covering.

The wooden floor is in bad condition (planks) very uneven,split and bits missing.

On lifting 2 floor boards near the bath we find that all the pipe work has just been cut out of the joists and is level with the top of the joist

We know that the floor has to be levelled but how would we do this,with plywood but we do not know where all the pipes run and we live over a shop so cannot afford to have any leaks ect.

Would the best way to go
take all the floor boards up and relay with plywood,that way we can see the dangers.
I would appreciate any info regarding what you would do and what to purchase.

Simply Build It

take up all the existing floorboards and lay T&G (tounge and groove) chipboard floorboards ,screw down the boards and glue the joints,this will prevent creaking..
