Stupid (?) question = Quick (?) answer.

I must replace the subfloor in my 70's house. Do I run the T&G boards perpendicular or parallel to the joists?

Use plywood.

RE: Stupid (?) question = Quick (?) answer.

Planned to use plywood as many of friends/family have suggested, but could not get a consensus on which direction. I am somewhat confused by snoonyb's answer. I am using .701 4 x 8's. If I lay them diagonally, wouldn't that create a lot of waste?

The room is approx. 17'x 24'. Thanks for your patience guys.

I just realized that a similar discussion is going on in the post of tlbean2004. Probably best to shut this one down and hop on over there. It has more dialogue but I thank all that responded to me - I'll be over there from now on. Again, TY.
