Hey moms, need some help here. Hoping someone can help me out .
I have a home with unfinished wood floors that are old, (1930's) cold, and splintery. It has been a desire of ours to do something with these floors, and until this time have not had the funds to. We also have a need, our newest daughter will be crawling soon, and the last thing I want is splintered hands and knees. My problems is this.
The floors are old, and somewhat uneven. I called in the flooring guys to measure the area to be covered with some of that fake wood soft vinyl flooring. I don't know the real name for it, lol. The man who came in said that because of the condition of the floors we needed to lay down a layer of plywood first. Fine, we can do that.....right? Lol. I am having a hard time jump starting my husband, and so I am turning to you. have any of you had to lay down plywood over existing wood floors before, and how might one go about that? Do you nail or screw them together? Is there a particular spacing of nails or screws that is best? How to you make sure there are not soft spots or creaks in the floor?
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
