Hi, I know very, very little about construction so this may be a silly question, but does anyone know what is involved in removing wood floors and reusing them in another part of the house? The same question for tile floors. We are looking at a house that needs some major adjustments and would like different floors but do not wish to waste the good tiles and wood. This is where my question becomes really outrageous, but can this be done in large pieces as opposed to individual tiles and strips of wood and therefore save time and money on removal and reinstallation costs? Any ideas or advice in this area would be greatly appreciated (including opinions as to whether or not its a very costly process). Thanks so much!

Dont know about the wood floors but this cannot be done with ceramic tile. You will need to install new tile.
