Bathroom Renovation: Subfloor Preparation Advice

Hello,

Maybe I can get advice here before registering for a million d.i.y. forums,

I am planning on renovating my bathroom because as you can see it is bad shape! I pulled up some tile (it wasn't very hard since most weren't even adhered at all!) to see what I was going to be working with and this is what I found:






How bad does it look? It feels like there is some warping of the planks.

Will I have to pull up these planks or can I install plywood over this? I am planning on (properly) installing tile over the floors, the bathroom is not very big so I THINK I can handle it but I want to make sure everything is prepared correctly.

Any other advice from experience would be nice too.

Thanks!

Can you please post photos, as it is not available and as far as from my experience. I would suggest you to hire any expert for installing tile, as they know it much better and are more experienced then us and if you do it from your own somethings are always left.

Probably not the right place for this question - I'd do the DIY forums.

But while you have the floors up, look into radiant heat.

Try uploading the photos again so we can help you since the first batch you uploaded are no longer available, bathroom renovation is not as easy as it seems. My hubby tried renovating our bathroom but end up ruining it in a way so we decided to just contact a professional to do the renovation
