I was in the process of remodeling the upstairs masterbath. The previous owner had OSB(?) over the 1/2 inch plywood and there seems to be some discoloration on the plywood due to exposure to water. There is no rotting that's visible to the naked eye. Should I be concerned about the discoloration or is it okay to leave it as is? Many thanks in advance.

My apologies. Make that a 3/4 inch plywood. Professional advice needed. Thanks.

I would replace the OSB with treated plywood.

I will be replacing the OSB with concrete backer board. Is it safe to assume that the discoloration on the subfloor is okay?

If the plywood is solid then don't worry about the discoloration.

The plywood is still real solid. Thanks for the advice.
