I am about to lay some 3/4" solid oak hardwood in my living room. I removed the carpet and fiberboard underlayment. What I found was 1/2" plywood (not tongue and groove) as my subfloor, joists are 16"o/c. I definitely will be adding to the 1/2" but have a couple of questions. I did search around the internet but had a hard time finding the answers to my specific situation.

1. I plan on installing 23/32" second layer. Does it need to be tongue and groove?

2. Do I need to make sure I don't hit a joist when I screw it down? Or can I hit the joist to make one uniform subfloor vs. a subfloor and underlayment.

3. I am reading a lot of conflicting info on whether I should install plywood or OSB (Advantech).


4. If I have any week spots in the 1/2" should I replace that section or will the 23/32" second layer negate the need to replace the week section of 1/2"



Thanks for your help.

Probably everyone who has a garden and a place to relax and unwind. The wooden floor is a good thing for a place like this because it is comfortable outside and comfortable, and adds a bit of heat.
