Question of the week:

Mark says, “I purchased a home that had baseboard heat fed by copper water lines to the heating unit. I removed all the baseboard heaters in favor of a heat pump for cooling and heating.

“There are hardwood floors throughout the house. Everywhere a copper pipe came through the floor there is a hole, with the size varying from about an inch to three inches. How can I repair those holes?

“I have some of the original hardwood floorings I salvaged from another remodel project from the house I can use.”
