Default Question-New Subflooring

Hello Everyone,

I have a question about removing the subflooring in my bathroom in order to install new subflooring/backerboard/tile. I have removed the old tiles and the cement backer already but am now at an impass as I realized that the screws that held the backerboard to the subfloor where longer than they should have been and have gone into the joists(?) underneath, making it extremely difficult to pry up the subflooring. What techinque/tool shouls I be using for the job?

Your responses would be greatly appreciated.

-Alex

Why do you feel you need to remove the subflooring? Is it rotted? If not then just put your new backer board over it.

Seems about like the time I would drag out the ole sawsall and cut away. If the screwheads are broken off, this will fix your problem. Just locate a joist and get your blade under the subflooring and cut the screws out.
