Dear PoP – flooring questions

“Dear PoP,

Two related questions for your readers:

1) Recommendations for hardwood floor repair/refinishing. I am hoping to be able to patch the original hardwood that’s under the carpet, but have no idea what kind of shape it’s in. It’s probably bad, given that there seems to be an extra layer of plywood over the old wood. If it can’t be patched, we’d probably want to have the old stuff removed and a new floor put in. Being able to salvage part of it for re-use elsewhere would be great, but I have heard varying opinions on the feasibility of doing that.

2) Carpet installation. I love hardwood floors as much as anyone, but I also admit to liking carpet upstairs. Not our current carpet, though, which is awful and needs replacing.”
