Do I tell the difference when I pull up the corners of the carpeted house?
My house is a 19020's era row home in Baltimore. It was a gut rehab and I'm not sure if the floors had been ripped out. Previous owner was an elderly lady.
If you are asking how you can tell the difference. The hardwood would be individual boards laid side by side (tounge & groove)of varing lengths. Generally they can varing in widths from 2" to 6" wide more or less. The subfloor is generally wafer board ( OSB ) in rehab or modern houses in large sheets of 4'X 8' demensions. Although in older homes they also used 1" boards ( 6,8,10") wide laid on the diagonal for subfloor.This message has been edited. Last edited by: redoverfarm,
