Q: We are in the process of buying our first house and we have a couple questions about the floor. The previous owner put in some bamboo engineered hardwood flooring, but he didn’t do a very good job with the details (meeting toilets, sinks, trim, etc.), so we are thinking about trying to fix it. We think it’s a floating floor, but we’re not sure if it’s glued or glueless at the seams. Do you think it would be possible to take up the floor and put it back down?
We’re going to carpet one room that currently has the hardwood, so we hope to use the wood from there as the extra we’ll need to fix the other rooms.
A: I haven’t seen any floating engineered bamboo with click joint yet. Only thing I can suggest is to try to remove a piece. Lift one edge and pull. If it comes apart, fine. If not, then you know the rest of the story.
