    Why you replacing ?

    Cut through the tongue , lift the boards , do the plumbing/electrical work and refit the boards

    Use screws to stop them squeaking too

    Some boards are damaged beyond repair

    Also some of the boards do not fill me with confidence that they will stay firmly down with no movement

    As the bathroom will be tiled, i worry that poor floor boards will lead to movement which could lead to cracks and floor tiles that come off later.

    Also don't they usually advise to screw some wood (like 2 by 4) under the floorboard for extra firmness?

    Or is this all OTT?

    Also i
     
  5. piece it back together with some cls underneath where needed, 9 or 12mm ply over with screws every 5-6” and tile.
