Tongue And Groove Plywood For Subfloor
Osb and cdx subfloors come in tongue and groove.
Tongue and groove plywood for subfloor. Some engineers require it in certain applications but for standard subfloor applications none will be needed. Tongue and groove often shortened to t and g in builder speak is a joint used in many types of woodworking. If it was not tongue and groove you could possibly step hard enough around a seam in the plywood and see the seams separate a bit.

The tongue and groove are only along the 8 foot edges. In the 1950s this material quickly replaced solid wood planking as a subfloor material in homes.
But to start off we will need to remove the tongue so the plywood is tight with the exterior icf walls. The boards are laid lengthwise perpendicular over joists and joined together. Again it is to your discretion also.
For sub floors we will consider 18mm thickness tongue and groove with dimensions of 600mm x 2400mm. On the four foot edges your seams will fall on joist tops so no need for tongue and groove. Tongue and groove gives added support at the seems and makes for a more solid floor.
It is similar to a mortise and tenon. Since it has tongue and groove the joints which end between the joists do not need extra reinforcement thus less work. A ridge on one edge of the plywood protrudes and fits into a slot in the adjoining edge.
Standard plywood can be used for subfloors but it is more common to use tongue and groove sheets that interlock along the edges. Screws are needed to fix down the new sub floor. Installation chipboard is faster to install as it has tongue and groove.
