I'm going to install a Bruce 3/4" hardwood floor in my father's house. It is going in a kitchen/dining room. I need to remove the old flooring all the way to the decking(which is 1x6 or 1x8 planks). Should I just go over the decking with new t&g plywood or is it feasible to remove the decking and just put down the plywood. Height of the finished floor is the only concern, it will have a transition to carpet.
