    Hi - I have some spongy 3/4" T&G red oak floors. They are 62 years old, so I am sure there are some broken tongues and that the original cleats have loosened from the subfloor in some areas. The original subfloor is only 3/8" thick - it may have absorbed some moisture from the humid air below...

This morning I sanded a small bubble on the second coat of polyurethane which has resulted in it peeling away in that area. What to do so I can proceed with the third then fourth coats of polyurethane...

    We bought a new standard size standing fridge, just a fridge. But even with it full with food I can't seem to stop it from sliding or jiggling on our tiled floor.

I have no idea why he would cover hardwoods like that. Anyway, I'd like to break it up...

    this tile is driving me nuts. as per the photos it appears to be some type of vinyl laid over the original (?) porcelain hex tile. in a perfect world that vinyl would be easy and (more importantly) safe to remove and the porcelain underneath in good condition. my gut tells me neither of these...
