Warped boards, oak floor any way to restore?
We just discovered an oak floor under the subfloor in our kitchen. Unfortunately, 2 of the boards are warped. The remaining floor is slightly damaged but fixable. I really want to save the floor. Short of going to a salvage yard and hoping to find similar boards does anyone know of any secrets. Most say it can’t be done but i have seen 2 methods on line. Have you tried any? 1) drill holes; wet board; then screw board down and fill holes (I don’t think this would allow for the natural expansion/contraction) 2) remove boards; wet and place heavy object or vice straight and allow to dry in sun. I would greatly appreciate any advice, especially if you have been successful! Thank you! Christian
if it is tongue and groove you may have to cut it out some time they slip out of groove when they warp making it almost impossible to straiten . if you are good with a sawzall or any saw with a thin small toothed blade you can cut the tongue off these boards and try to screw them down with trim screws , they come in square drive no. 2
