Yes! I'm finally finished getting the parquet floor out installed by the PO. The good news is the sub floor is solid! The bad news, the PO used whatever glue he had to install the floor and this is why it took me so long to get done in my few days off. Some tiles came off almost without any assistance even though there was glue under them. Others just needed a little motivation from a thin bladed putty knife. Then came the challenge. In some spots, he used some type of glue that worked its way into the sub floor so with a hammer and the putty knife made for this type of work, I did my best to separate the parquet from the wood with as little damage as possible. Well, sometimes the pieces took an entire layer of plywood with them!
There was no stopping it! The floor is not rotten but where the glue "soaked in" it's soft on that top layer where it ripped away. Under it it's strong. Now I'm getting ready to pick a new floor for it and I have more than one problem. The main one I have researched all over these forums and I can only find threads addressing wet rot. I have low spots now that need to be filled and I don't know if I should cut back some parts that are soft and not attached (I hope the picture can show it better) or if there is a epoxy on the market that will fill or be used and then filled without ripping more wood away. Any thoughts?
