How Do You Replace A Bathroom Subfloor?
You want to remodel your bathroom by adding new flooring. However, due to water damage or dry rot, you may have to replace part or all of your bathroom subfloor first. Replacing your bathroom subfloor will maintain stability and beauty for your new hardwood or tiled floor. Remove all the bathroom fixtures, like the toilet and cabinets, if you’re planning to replace the entire floor. You’ll be able to examine the subfloor for any further damage. Take out the existing subfloor. If you have a concrete subfloor, use a hammer and chisel to remove the clumps of concrete protruding from the surface. Any protruding areas could damage the new flooring. If you have a wood floor, remove the subfloor using a chisel or pry bar.
