I have a question about an upcoming project we're tackling. Our home was built in 1901 and the existing kitchen has the following layers beginning from the joists up:

3/4" tongue and groove planks (My guess is that those are pine)
1/2" plywood sheet
5/8" Particle board
3/16" plywood sheet
Old linoleum sheet floor
3/16" plywood sheet
recent Allure vinyl planks which we want to remove

The roof followed suit, 5 layers in that case, before we replaced the roof a few years back.

We are renovating the kitchen and want to install solid oak tongue and groove (3" to 4" wide) as the new floor. We don't want to remove the linoleum because of the potential of asbestos in the adhesive.

Are there long enough nails for a floor nailer so that we can just pull the Allure, screw the 3/16" plywood through to the joists everywhere and go right over that with the new floor? Or is the best approach to replace the top layer of 3/16" plywood with 1/2" plywood, screw that to the joists and nail the new oak to that?

Is there a better option than either of those?

Thanks!

A major floor association recommends not laying over particle board because the fasteners do not hold as well as into solid wood or plywood. I would check the area where you need to know about any asbestos. Usual linoleum glue is water soluble.The one half inch plywood fastened to the sub-floor is the best start.
