The Perfect Tool for a Sticky Subfloor

Particleboard stuck down with tar

Chelsea and Joe welcome callers’ questions each week on the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Here’s a question from our Oct. 12 broadcast:

Stephen in Alabama says, “I have a concrete slab, raised, with what looks like tar paper or tar-like substance holding down particleboard.  I have removed the top two or 3 layers of flooring.  But now I am stuck, aside from the old hammer & chisel approach.” 

We tell Stephen he can rent a floor scraper machine from The Home Depot to bust up the particleboard.

Listen to the embedded audio clip above for the answer!
