Help Identifying flooring timber after bad bathroom leak

Postby TotalNewbie » Mon Aug 30, 2021 8:59 am

Hi there

New to the forum.

Just had a bad leak in the bathroom so the insurance sent someone round to rip up the bathroom flooring to dry it out.

However, need some help on what this wood is and where to find it - is it just chipboard that can be bought at a local merchant or is it specific for bathrooms?

Hi totalnewbie
Most likely to be plywood, it’s not chipboard or flake board (OSB).
