i have a rental house that is a little over 100 years old. it has a well preserved parquet floor that has always been covered with carpet. i would like to move this floor to my present home. it is one of the most beautiful floors i have ever seen. is this possible and how do i do it? thank you so much for any ideas.

parquet floors are normaly glued down and the "tile "is made of small pieces,this means it would be almost impossible to take up the floor. sorry

I dissagree..
what kind of Parquet is it?.. post a picture..
also some of the Parquets are top nailed. (strip flooring) or prefabbed on a piece of Plywood and then installed as a nail down or glue down.. I've restored Hundreds of styles and have had to remove sections of (unremovable/unrepairable) parquets.. please post a pic so I can give appropriate advice.. thanks.. good luck!!!

THANK YOU for your replies. the house is rented right now. so i can't take a picture yet. I was making plans for removal of floor when my tenant moves. i will definitely be back on with a picture in the near future. just hoping it is not glued now.

thanks again
