Removing Parquet

trigrl09September 3, 2012

Can anyone recommend a tool for removing parquet from plywood.

We rented a floor scraper this did not work at all.

Currently we are using a chisel and a hammer and a flat blade shovel. We have spent 6hrs and probably have at least another 12hrs with this method. Help!!!

Set the depth of your circular saw to the thickness of the plywood and parquet and cut the plywood out. Then replace it. The cost will be insignificant, but the labor savings will be huge.

Unless you are going to do what Green suggested you have to beat it out. I just spent mega hours beating it off my concrete slab with a hammer and chisel!
