My fiancee is wanting to put wood planking as a type of second wood floor down so that we can put carpet on it. Why? Because he's afraid of them ripping up the wood floor that is down now, and putting new wood down. There is one soft spot due to water damage years ago, which is what they would need to fix, and mainly why i want the floor redone.
Is there an alternative to putting wood on top of wood, just to carpet? Anything would help at this point. Can you also help as to why this is a bad idea? It just doesn't sound like a good plan to me, but he's convinced he's got it solved.
