A number of people have been asking me how do you know when the sub-floor needs to be replaced. Well, there are a couple of tell tale signs. First, is if there is any give in the floor for instance when you are walking around your kitchen and your foot causes the floor to move. Also, if you have had a leak in the kitchen your almost always going to have dry rot in the sub-floor and maybe in the joists themselves.
