Got an old house with squeaky floorboards? Follow this step-by-step guide to rectify the issue.
A common problem in older properties is squeaky floorboards. They can devalue your property, cause constant annoyance, and perhaps indicate the presence of bigger structural problems.
You’re going to need 2-inch bullet head nails, a nail punch, a hammer, a drill and a 1/8th drill bit.
1. Locate the joist below the floorboard.
2. Drill a hole in the end of the board for the nail, and hammer it in.
3. You can finish the job off with a nail punch so the surface is ready for sanding.
4. It should be as simple as that – if not, there may be a bigger structural problem to investigate.
