Chuck?? Anyone Else??

Please advise...do I drill just the top layer larger than the screw threads? Can I offset the new screws and fill the old holes with thinset or should I get new ply underlayment. A lot cheaper and...

Yup

That's exactly what I have just determined, Chuck! I have been fighting these particular screws all the way through the job. What do I do now??? New ply and drill it? Use this and change the hole...

Can't Be Right...can it??

When screwing down the underlayment over the subfloor you screw 4 inches from the joists with a 16 inch center joist configuration. What happens when your underlayment pieces meet at a joist? Do...
