Q: I have an old house (80+) with 2″ boards on the ground and second floors. Much of it is in poor condition (gouges, gaps, nails that pop up, etc.) What is the cost involved in removing and relaying new hardwood?
A: I think you are looking from $10-$15 per sq. ft. Some elements in this may not be needed. For example, plywood sheeting screwed over the existing sub floor. That can be decided when the old floor is removed. Removing and disposing of the existing hardwood floor is not rocket science, but a lot of back breaking work. The cost could be reduced if the home owner decided they could handle that part themselves.

Glue stuck on hardwood floor
I just stained pine hardwood floors, and didn't get all the glue cleaned up. It looks horrible. How do I remove the glue before I put the finishing coats on? I tried sanding, but it didn't work.
Linoleum backing stuck to hardwood floor
Under my carpet I found hardwood flooring. Unfortunately, there is leftover glue and linoleum backing adhered to the hardwood. I would like to remove the carpet and refinish the hardwood flooring. What are my options or steps to remove the glue/linoleum?
Carefully removing boards
My hardwood floors were installed under the kitchen cabinets and have not held up well. I would like to replace them with wider planks, but how do you remove the old flooring without tearing out the kitchen cabinets?
