If you are having to remove the floor access the floorboards to do some plumbing maintenance and you need to get to essentially the middle of the room can you just work your way in from an middle edge or do you end up taking up the whole thing? Are there groves on the ends or just the sides of the panels?

Jacob Abraham says:

My Wife and I just bought our first house. We plan on replacing all the flooring in the entire house, wood laminate and carpet. We are going to do the flooring demo ourselves to save some money, is it a necessity to remove all the floor trim/baseboard, or can we get by leaving it in? I know we’ll have to remove the quarter rounds, but I’m more worried about having to remove the baseboard trim since we’re doing the entire house. Thanks so much, I have learned so much from all your videos! *(We are having a professional do the install)

Greg Knight says:

Really useful, thank you, especially for the tips around the skirting.

This was a very helpful video. Thank you so much. I’m going to try to tackle removing 800 square feet of 15-year-old pergo myself. If I can’t do it, then the contractor will charge $1500-$2000US. Is really love to save that money! Wish me luck! 🙂
