We have inherited some very nasty cheap laminate flooring in our recently bought Victorian house.
We are keen to remove this and sand down the original wood flooring. However, on lifting a sample piece of the laminate flooring I've discovered that there is half an inch of concrete on top of the original flooring.
My question is two fold, what is the reason for this and will it be okay to remove the concrete to sand the floors down.
Underneath the ground floor we have a basement of about 4ft high which runs the length of the house.
