Renovation + Home Improvement
Dec 27, 2017 12:52 pm
I'm having my kitchen renovated and polishing the floor boards in the living area and hall. The house in from 1981.
I thought the floor was lino, but it turns out that it is terracotta tiles over a white plaster/concrete looking sheet. It will be okay to remove, however how will the boards come up? The boards are a nice tassie oak.
I ask because I have heard that the sheet is nailed in, and the floor will look like it has a hundred nail holes in it.
If it is going to look terrible, I will consider just using a laminate throughout the house. Or tile the kitchen, which I don't think I want to do because it will look disjointed.
What to do?

Hi miss alison in my suggestion is better you can renovate your home using tiles because it shows beautiful and it can be patches your living area and hall.When people enter in your home living area is the first face. so you will renovate and remove your boards and replace new one or else using tile with over a plaster.

You need to engage a very experienced building consultant to assess what is happening with your home and to do forensic on whether the builder has followed approved drawings.
