Will ripping out hardwood floors ruin the subfloor?
Our hardwood floors have not settled down yet. We cannot wait forever and I'm starting to think the only solution is that they are replaced. How on earth will pulling out floors that are nailed and glued down not ruin the subfloor? My husband said the subfloor cannot be replaced because it is screwed and glued into our supportive beams and we do not want to rip the subfloor off the beams and compromise the integrity of them. I'm kind of nervous. Does anyone have experience with this?
And, please no remarks about my builder--I'm dealing with that on my own, right now I just want to learn about what damage putting new floors in will cause. thanks.
