    Hi Bob,
    thanks for the great video. However, I guess that the way the construction of the houses is done varies all over the world. I was wondering what stackup does the floor show in total. Here In Germany we often have concrete + some sound improvement mat and then a floating floor (no way to consistently nail into the concrete). Can you please comment what is below what seems like particle board?

    Could it have all been done with a brad nailer instead of finishing nails?

    Nail down installation into particle board = big no no…(it can't properly hold the nail). after a full season of expansion/contraction of flooring movement and squeaking is very probable…
    Not trying to rain on any parade, I am a fan and enjoy watching your content.

    Removing carpet is quite the chore, those tack strips are the worst construction material to have to demo and deal with, really liked the carpet padding trick! Floors came out looking great, Bob.

    There's a tool just for all that demo, a floor scraper! And use "cut nails" instead of pre-drilling

    Hey Bob, I'm a young female and work in the tools and hardware department of a large home improvement store. A lot pf customer's approach me assuming I know nothing about tools and hardware. They think because I'm not a man, I don't know about these departments. Watching your videos teaches me a lot. Most people are impressed by how knowledgeable I am about hardware and home improvement when they hear my answers to their questions. Today, a customer asking me how I would recommend removing tack board when removing carpet. Because I watched this video recently, I was able to tell the customer how to remove the tack strip with a pry bar and hammer. Thanks for teaching me and helping me do better at my job.

    The headers in the doorways and misaligned floors between rooms would drive me nuts.

    why use that flooring if you can use the much simpler other one you used in the last video ?
