Morseback, Horseback, sqwidly borseback - no problem.

If you're going to put down new plywood or other subfloring, pounding the buggers flat with a hammer is the easiest way to go.

For the fastidious, removing all the staples prior to installing new sub-flrting over the old floor boards would be the way to go- but there's no long term advantage to that.

Home Ownership- ain't it grand?

All best,

Bill
