We want to remove wall-to-wall carpeting in our 14' x 14' living room and put in medium-priced engineered hardwood flooring. About how much would it increase the materials and installation costs if the wood is laid in a hexagonal pattern with an 18" straight border, versus having all the planks laid parallel to each other?
I have a 80 year old house with good oak hard wood floors. The previous owner had glue on commercial carpets on these floors. I want to remove this carpet and refinish the floors. Question is how do I remove the glue to clear the floor for sanding?
