How thick subfloor is best?

hello, I am planning on putting down hardwood flooring (oak-the regular kind you need to sand and finish) in my above grade living room and hallway. The subfloor is 19/32 plywood on 2 by 10 joists 16 on center. My question is should I glue and screw down 1/4 plywood to the existing subfloor or is 19/32 fine as it is so close to 5/8. I want to do the job right and the flooring should be installed over 5/8-3/4 inch subfloor. Many thanks for any advice, jason

I would go with 3/8" ply. More rigid and you'll get a better solid feeling subfloor. Glue and screw is a good method. Install the ply opposite of the existing while overlapping the seams. See more on proper subfloor conditions and installing.
