Repairing Weyroc Floor Fitted Over Timber Joists

Postby sargan » Sat Feb 01, 2020 10:26 pm

Have a Weyroc floor fitted over wood joists in a bedroom ... house built circa 1980

Floor is damaged in 2 places .... don’t really want to re-sheet whole floor, particularly as fitted wardrobes over part of the floor.

initially thought it would be easy ... cut a square out back flush with joist and fix a bearer timber on joist, to hold edge of new board, and screw some supports round underside of other 3 sides to form a frame to fit new piece in.

This plan stuttered today when I measured thickness of the Weyroc ...it’s 19.4mm. So presumably 3/4” sheet.

Anybody know if you can still get 3/4” sheet ....
I can buy 20mm but that is not going to sit flush without a lot of extra work.

or do people not bother with different thickness and simply use 20mm
