Carpet over Particle board
Well wife picked out the carpet from home depot and the martha stewart comes with the 37 dollar install. So great... i pull out old carpet and realize that it has 5/8ish particle board for underlayment and about 3/8 plywood for sublfoor. Its a frog that hasn't been missed with in a long time... but the particle board looks in good condition. Reading the home depot contract seems they will not put any flooring on top of particle board. So should i A) remove and replace with T&G osb board or B) find someone else to install it?
this is for a 15x14ft room so prob about 75 + screws and glue for the new T&G but already spending more than i wanted to with the carpet and built ins and window unit.
