Re: hole in kitchen floor

Did you get a chance to determine why the 'fence' boards gave? moisture? dry rot? termites? insufficient spacing of the joists below? other?

After you found out the cause, make sure it doesn't happen to you again. Then you need to rip the old subfloor and start from scratch. This time do it right.

If you could post a picture, that would help.
