Q: I’m into a project removing glued down laminate flooring. How do I remove cheap, laminate, wood flooring from my foyer and hall way? It is glued down rather randomly throughout the space and is extremely difficult to tear out. Is their a product that will remove the glue and make this job a bit easier?
The flooring is about a 13/8 inch thick, if that helps.
A: Cheap laminate is not generally a glue down product but a floater. I don’t know what the adhesive is, so it looks to me like a lot of muscle and time is what will take it out. If I knew, for example, that a Bostick adhesive was used, then they have an adhesive remover.
