no sub floor?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Iím about to acquire an old home. My questions are.
Is it common for old homes to have no sub floor? It seems this one hasnít any.
The floors are thick tongue and grove though.
Most rooms the floor are in great shape and donít need sanding, refinishing.
But Iíd like to refinish a few rooms, I watched a guy sand a wood floor with a one brush type floor polisher with a sander pad attachment. Is this circular type of sanding ok for refinishing hard wood floors?
Thanks

Hi,

By 'Old homes'....what time periods do you mean?

About the early 1900's or a little older

I've been in more than a few houses that old with hardwood plank flooring and no subfloor. My old house (built in 1857, added onto and remodeled in 1910) had plank hardwood throughout and no subfloor.
