My home has red oak hardwood, circa 1952 but needs help badly in two ways. some boards (2 that I can tell) need replacing as they have been comepletely chewed through by termites and secondly that there are gaps between the boards.
I can picture myself replacing a few boards and hammmering them all snug in one direction and measuring a slip of a board to install next to the wall, . . . but then I've a pretty good imagination.
I am wondering if this is a job strictly for the pros or if a regular joe might take it on without making it worse.
