    Default replacing tongue and groove board

    Hi everyone,

    after some advice on replacing a few single boards.

    I've done this before using a method of cutting an X into the old board, chisiling it out
    then cutting the groove the bottom of the groove off the new board and the tongue off the end match, adding some glue to the yellow tongue and dropping it in.


    my new house has tongue and groove boards. but these are laid directly on the joists, so how to do replace the board and keep the strength of the end matched tongue?




    I'm sure there is a youtube video out there somewhere but not quite sure on the right terminology or most videos are american laying the boards straight onto plywood

    Make the joins in the middle of the joists.

    thanks droog.

    might also just add some blocking under the end tongues as there is only a few boards to replace.
