: I'm not sure if I'm acurately measuring the rough in on my toilet in our 1930's house. From the back of the tile to the toilet bolts in 13.5'. Does this mean the rough in is 14'?

"Rough-In" can be used to verbally describe either the measurement to a finished wall or unfinished wall. The vast majority of new toilets now require the flange to be roughed-in at 12in o.c. from the finish wall or 12.5 from the framed wall to compensate for drywall. Many plumbers will rough in at 13 from framed wall for more dimensional variations in finish material and fixture.
