Wood over uneven subfloors
Jordan

We bought a house and removed the wall between two rooms. One room had wood floors and the other had tile. We ripped up the tile and plan on continuing the wood floors to joint the two rooms into one. When we removed the tile, we discovered that the subfloor in the tile roon is actually a quarter inch thicker than the subfloor beneath the existing wood floors. Our floor guys say that they can notch the planks that would sit right where the two floors meet and there would be a slight tilt that you wouldn't even see. They act like this will work perfectly and not be a problem. Does that sound right? Or should we remove all of the subfloor in that tile room and replace it with the same thickness as we have under the existing wood and then install it? (Image attached, the plank in this image is not notched yet, just showing the floor transition.)
