I am having to rip up a piece of floor about 8 by 12 feet. The old floor is
not solid (plywood over strapping) and is about an inch and 1/2 thick. I
don't want to use the old strapping since with settling over time it's no
longer the right thickness to be level. My question is, can I put down foam
board and cover it with plywood? Will it stand up over time or with use will
it compress down? It's a front hall so will see substantial traffic.
