I am hoping someone can help. I am trying to remove my existing floating timber floorboards. The floorboards themselves are not glued or nailed down to the existing surface, which is concrete, so it is no problem getting underneath the boards themselves. The issue is dismantling them. Ideally I would like to onsell them, but unless I get some advice, I am going to use the old brut force approach, which will render them useless.
The boards are attached via a tongue and groove joint and are proving exceedingly difficult to separate.
Any advice would be welcomed. I would consider myself an amatuer DIYer, at best.
If nothing is nailed, and you can't separate them, I assume they are glued together. If that is the case, there is no simple way, force is needed. You will probably get some apart without too much damage, but I suspect a lot will have tongues ripped off.
