How to get the board under lino up cleanly

Postby xela » Sat Jun 07, 2008 11:13 am

I am ripping up the flooring in my bathroom - I have taken to old lino out, taken all the screws out that are in the board underneath only to realise that it is also glued, I have ripped some up but its coming off in small bits as its stuck. Is there good way to get this up easily...Im not even sure what sort of tool to use to lever it!

I'm sure you'll get better suggestions - but i'd say get a mate round to help and use a couple of crow-bars, protect your floorboards with a scrap piece of timber and try levering the plyboard up.
