Q: We just had a 1950s floor furnace removed. Needless to say, this has left a large hole in our wall and our hardwood floors. For now the floor hole is plugged with plywood. Can we fix the wall, first, and then have the hardwood floor patched and refinished?
Or, do we need to leave open the hole in the wall until the floor is fixed? Which do we fix first? Does it matter which project we tackled next? Thank you and we very much appreciate your Web page!
