I am beginning demolition and realizing I have a few newbie questions.
Iíve got most of the seats pulled out and started pulling up the rubber floor. There is no plywood under the rubber so itís just sticky stuff under ther. Probably contact cement? How important is it to scrape that stuff off? I am thinking that it is a bad idea to paint rustoleum directly onto it? Should I rub acetone then scrape it off?
The rust is minimal. Is it worth treating with ospho or will rust killing paint do the trick?
What are the best ways to fill in these a bolt holes? Will polyurethane caulk shrink over time? Is there a better filler specifically used with metal? Also heard of an idea to caulk/glue pennies over the holes. What would be the best way to get them to stay in place?
Does anyone worry about the metal condensation underneath floor? Should I put down a vapor barrier or make it so that my subfloor can breath? I am planning on putting down 1 in foam and then floating 1/2 in osb, and flooring on top of any osb exposed after built ins.
Hopefully that is not too many questions!
use plywood rather than OSB, or you'll be pulling up the floors the first time someone spills some water - done many insurance repair jobs on house trailers with OSB floors, when the hot water tank leaked or the shower stall let water onto the floor, or even by the kitchen sink - OSB swells and delaminates when it gets wet
