Plywood Tongue And Groove Subfloor
Plywood tongue and groove sub floor is suitable to use as the base for carpet hardwood vinyl or tile flooring.
Plywood tongue and groove subfloor. Since it has tongue and groove the joints which end between the joists do not need extra reinforcement thus less work. A ridge on one edge of the plywood protrudes and fits into a slot in the adjoining edge. If it was not tongue and groove you could possibly step hard enough around a seam in the plywood and see the seams separate a bit.
Tongue and groove edges on many premium floor panels such as weyerhaeuser s edge gold osb panels are designed to self gap. To avoid buckling subfloor panels should be spaced with a 1 8 inch gap at all edges and ends to provide room for naturally occurring expansion. Screws are needed to fix down the new sub floor.

Right now i have 3 4 tg hardwood which is not in the best shape over a 2 5 wide x 3 4 inch think plank subfloor which runs perpendicular to the joists 2x10 16 oc. Tongue and groove often shortened to t and g in builder speak is a joint used in many types of woodworking. The plywood goes down so the groove is away from the wall that way after the row is finished or at least when you decide to start the next row a 2x4 can be placed across the joists at the edge of the next row and drive with a sledgehammer the second run into the first.
Standard plywood can be used for subfloors but it is more common to use tongue and groove sheets that interlock along the edges.
