I just started ripping up 3/4" particleboard to lay new floors. Initially, the particleboard was nailed into hardwood floors -- easy to remove. Now, I'm into an area where the particleboard is glued (black, tar-like adhesive) to tile, set in mortar.
I want to lay tile in this area. Is there an easier way of getting up particleboard, other than chipping it up one molecule at a time?
- OR - can I just put wonderboard (or similar) on top of the particle board and install from there (will make really high profile).
