I have a 12 year old home that sits on a lsab foundation. The laminate wood flooring was glued to the concrete substrate. When I have repaired small areas I found great difficulty in removing the flooring due to the glue.
Due to excessive water damage the floor needs to be replaced. I need to lift and remove as well as prep the concrete for new flooring. It will be replaced with tile and carpet.
I do not have the money to hire a contractor to do the removel so I was going to do it and then have them install the new tile and carpet.
1. What is the easiest and what tools are recommended for removal.
2. What do tools and products do I need to remove the residual materials fromt he substrate?
Any help and recommendation is greatly appreciated.
