Hi there everyone,
I am researching my upcoming floor renovation to my kitchen / dining room.
Currently the flooring surface is old cork tiles, presumably glued directly to the concrete slab below.
My partner and I have decided that we want to lay hardwood floor boards. I have done these in the past (batten system) so am well drilled on the installation of the boards with nail guns to the timber battens.
However, with the cork tiles I am not sure what I should do, I am reluctant to remove the tiles because it will take an awfully long time to expose the concrete, get rid of all the adhesive etc. I had the thought of chanelling through the cork tiles just allowing enough room to nail my timber battens to the concrete and then lay my floors on top of that.
Has anyone had cork tiles and wanted floor boards, if so what options did you consider and ultimately go with?
Thanks so much in advance, would appreciate any guidence.

Those are engineering properties the The footing, beams ,slab and piers are combined as one solid Individual surfaces can be extracted,eg, Top for reinforcement, sides…
