Eventually, the old plank floors are beginning to demand greater attention: that the weakened floorboards start to play under my feet and to communicate by squeaks, reminding of the famous comic musical play “kitten on the keys”; the rotting boards threatening to break; the knots were narrowed and povyskakivali from the boards forming the floor of the through hole.
If all wooden floor completely cracked and the floor is full of cracks — would have it open entirely and, rallying boards, re-nail them tight, compensating slit additional inserts — boards or bars. It is better to invite an experienced master with the appropriate tools.
But it happens that there is a need to replace some planks to do it selectively; or even problematic was the only Board. In this case, a home handyman can handle myself by doing one or more simple operations, prompted by the British magazine “the illustrated Mechanics”.
