Q: I have a very cheap engineered hardwood floor that was destroyed by high heel shoes. It needs to be replaced. It is glued down to Advantech OSB. I have been told this will be a nightmare to remove. I was then told just to nail down 3/4′ oak over the top of the old floor. The old floor is 3/8′ thick. Is installing new floors over these layers a good idea?
A: I wouldn’t nail anything over top of the floor you have. I would try a wrecking bar or rent a machine that is used to remove tile.
