Bathroom remodel 69 sovereign

Hi everyone I am redoing the bathroom the whole thing is ripped out now and I am looking for ideas for a sink shower ect. the floor is soft so I plan on just putting plywood right over the top of the old one does anyone know if they make a thicker toilet base or what ever that black flange is called. Also I am looking for a shower base that the drain will be in about the same spot as the old one doest anyone know of one that will work?

If your floor is bad you need to rip it out,and replace it,while you`e there you may find a little frame rot,rear end sag and nasty fiberglass. The plywood goes between the c-channel and the frame ,which gives it strength.You need to reuse your tub,just refinish it,or make a custom unit to fit the curve. Dave

Hey Jay,

I definately would discourage the practice of overlaying any bad wood. You may very well get by for a while, but it's much easier to spend some extra time now to fix it correctly. This also gives you an opportunity to address any other underlaying issues that may also need attention.

Do you have the original bath components?

No I donít have the original bath tub. The last guy used a sawzall to take it out. And as far as going over the top of the floor where I can see the frame on top and I have had the panel off below the black tank it looks good other then the metal casing around the tank thatís pretty bad but I donít think that really does to much does it? And the floor is only soft where the toilet was and the very back were the sink drain is.
