Wood flooring remove and replace
My existing wooden floor is scratched/marked in quite a few places, it also seems to make a cracking noise when walked on, how easy would it be to take up the existing wood flooring and replace with wood or good quality laminate. Thanks

If it’s an overlaid solid engineered floor it can be sanded and re finished

Depends on the existing floor. If it is a t and g timber boards you would probably be able to sand this down and varnish or stain the sanded surface their are many companies that offer this service. I sounds however that it is an engineered click type of floor and if an appropriate underlay was not used this is the sort of sound that can occur also if a space has not been allowed around the edge for movement really a site visit by a carpenter is best. Hope this helps.

Sounds like the floor has expanded and there is something underneath it I would advise to take up and re new
