plywood subfloor

Hi ,
Glad to hear everyone got through Rita ok.
My carpenter has laid CD plywood as a subfloor for my tile installation. Having read about this in the "Liberry", I went out over the weekend to get different plywood, so that when he returns on Mon., he can replace. I could only find AC. Is this ok? They had no BC at all three places I went, so.....
Thankyou, Sallie

Hi Sallie,

I'm not a pro, but AC's what I've got down -- it'll do you fine. AC, BC or CC plugged and sanded are the okay grades. Put the purty side up and you'll be all set. Good call on replacing the CD.


edit: The "A", "B", "C" things are like grades in high school. Can't go wrong with the A stuff, but it's overkill in some applications (like roof sheathing). Not in this case...

Hi Sallie, ac is fine. That's what I always use if I have to put extra ply down.
