hi all,
i am a new home buyer faced with the task of sorting out the lounge/ dining room flooring. The previous owner had parquet flooring laid down (i think oak), which has now gone chipped and jaded. the adhesive has come loose in places, making the flooring creak as i walk. some of the panels have also come off in places.
my question is what would be the best way to go from here. repair individual tiles or replace the parquet flooring? my end point was to have the the lounge carpetted. in this case does the underflooring have to be replaced or are there any cheaper alternatives.

any advise will be most welcome.

thanks

You will be smart to remove the old parquet---assess the condition of the underlaynent and sub floor.

Then decide what you want to do.

thanks for that.

when you usually lay a carpet, is it normally over the subfloor or over a wooden flooring. i mean would i have to have a wooden flooring layed before i think of laying the carpet?

looking forward to your reply.

thanks

Get any messy work done before the carpet--that means --wood,tile finish and trim first--
Carpet is last.
