Removing Glue-down Hardwood Flooring

Posted by Murray B Wells on July 22nd, 2001 11:40 PM

We have recently purchased a fairly new home (built '94), that has a hardwood entryway. I believe the hardwood is gluedown, and probably a bruce product. It is not solid wood throughout. It appears that underneath is a dark, almost black adhesive. I need to remove this, as we are going to put another style of hardwood in the entire first floor, and cannot match the existing floor.

Will I run into any troubles? At this point, Im only planning on removing the sideboards, and just prying the old stuff out. Im concerned it will split or be unusually difficult to remove.

Any advice on tools, products or techniques will be so greatly appreciated!
