Installing Plywood Subfloor to Install Engineered Wood Floor on top

Postby davidr83 » Sat Jun 17, 2017 10:05 am


I'm looking to install a plywood subfloor, to install engineered wood floor on top. One thing I'm unsure- what thickness plywood should I use ? And what depth screws should I use, if i'm going into floorboards underneath ? Should I use self-countersinking screws for this?
