how to build up floor for hardwood

homeboundJuly 15, 2012

I have to build up a subfloor in a walk-in closet another 3/4" for hardwood. Just wondering, prior to hardwood is this typically a glue-and- screw job, or just screw? Thanks.

BTW, it's needed because the closet opens to the bathroom, which just got a new marble floor (and leveler, ply, durock, etc.). The height difference is too great otherwise.

Well if it's T&G it gets glued in the T&G but if not just use decking screws to screw into joists. Red rosin paper over ply.
