Stubborn creaky floorboards

Postby rangler » Sun Jan 30, 2011 3:10 pm

Hi all and nice forum
Posted this on another DIY forum but throught i'd post here too just in case

I have a spare room in our house which creaks like hell, i thought ok lets get the boards up and have a nosey then glue back down and use screws instead of nails.
Took me best part of 4 hours to get all the bloody nails out and 2 quite nasty cuts later theyre all out

However i cannot get the two T&G chipboards to come free, video here
Google ""

Can anyone suggest anything please.? Im tempted to just rip them up and tidy the edges afterwards then replace the chip boards with compressed ones ??

Any Thoughts please.[code][/code]

Looks like you still have some nails in place - give the board a good heave and replace them if the break.
