Hi everyone

We had a leaking shower in our en-suite bathroom (1960's built extension). When I removed the shower tray, I found out the flooring under the tiles is chipboard which has rotted and turned to pulp. The joists look fine. I'm planning to take up the existing tiled floor and replace with new boards. I want to lay electric underfloor heating and new stone tiles on top.

Any advice on what I should use to replace the floor? I have been given several options including marine ply (18mm or 22mm) or normal ply with tiling boards (No-more ply) on top. The instructions for the underfloor heating say to lay insulating tiling boards on the sub-floor. Not sure if I need to lay insulating boards, though, if I'm replacing the whole floor.

Which would be the best option?
