The short of the story I am facing is this:
Our building is from 1900. Our floors are (original?) oak thin strips floors. The wood strips are in good condition with no loose boards. But every time we apply any pressuer on the floor it squeeks like an old rusty bed. It is the same in the apartment over us.
Our original proposal was to rip floors apart, replace the subfloor and then install rubber underlayer with floating floors. However our building is insisting that installing rubber underlayer over the existing floor and then floating floor would be just fine in addressing squeaks
what is the best way to proceed?
