How to Replace Floor Boards
Fitting new floor boards, while the floor boards are up if any central heating pipes are exposed, check that this had been insulated. This will help prevent knocking and rattling. Here we’re using air felt insulation. If the floor boards had been cut with a joist, a support for the new boards will have to be fixed to the side. Drill and screw this. Don’t use nails.
Cut the floor boards to length. You may find the new floor boards are slightly thinner to those which you’ve taken up in which case they’ll all need packing up. Find suitable wood to pack your boards up with. Fix this with pins to the joist. Now position the boards. Make sure you mark the position of any cables or pipes onto the floor boards. Knock a wedge shape in between the old boards and the new boards. This will tighten up the new boards before fixing.
Drill through two floor boards avoiding any marks for cables or pipes and screw the floor boards down. Now measure the gap to be filled like it’s not a full floor board. Mark off both ends and cut to size. Make sure you cut off the side with a groove, not the side with the tongue. It should now be positioned. Mark into place if necessary and fix by drilling and screwing as before.
