Removing Tack Strips From Concrete

Posted by Mike McMonagle on October 20th, 2002 08:23 PM

I am getting ready to install Pergo on a concrete slab that was previously carpeted. Pulling up the tack strips either leaves the nail behind or makes a small crater where the nail comes out.

1 - What is the best way to remove the nails from the slab? Or just cut them flush with a big pair of dikes?

2 - What (if anything) should be dome about the small indents left where the nails actually do come out?
