We are getting our 2nd story bathroom updated. When the old floor tile was taken up we found a leak from the toilet which damaged the plywood and called for part of ceiling downstairs to have to be cut out due to mold/rot. Supposedly the toilet was not set right on seal which caused the slow leak.
My concern is, the foor guy put the new plywood around the toilet flange with the seam of two pieces of plywood right up the centerline of the flange (where the toilet will sit) instead of using one piece of plywood with a hole cut out for the flange.That area with the seam doesn’t feel strong. If i step on both sides of it it rocks. Cement board will go on top and then tile but should the plywood have been installed differently? There is not much support around the flange underneath the plywood just to note. There is just a piece of wood behind the flange under the floor.
Also, should the flange be above the plywood more than what it is to make room for cement board and tile?
