I am remodeling my basement bathroom. Doing this I am going to add a floor 7" off the floor. There is currently a toilet in there. I am wondering what I can use to raise the toilet. I am unable to cut off the old flange and put new pipe on it, someone mentioned a Flange Extension. Does anyone know anything about these, and where I might be able to get one. I have a 3" pipe going down.

The next question is with this subfloor I was going to put 3/4" Underlayment on 2X6 12" on center floor. On top of this can I put Tiles?

Thanks for the help, I got all the stuff for the floor and now I am not sure if I can put the raised floor in.

I don’t know about the flange extension.

As for the sub floor, I would recommend ½ “underlayment over ¾” T&G plywood with all joints staggered. While you could place tiles over the ¾” alone there is a good chance it will crack at the joints in the underlayment due to deflection.

Your 2x6s can be placed at 16” OC instead of 12” OC but make sure they are in contact or shimmed to the original floor every 6’ minimum.
