    Default removing tongue and groove bead board

    We are in the process of remodeling my great grandmother's home. The walls and ceilings are tongue and groove bead board that we need to take down in some places to reuse in others. We want to keep it all and reuse it but it is difficult to remove without breaking. Any ideas on what is the simplest method for such a process?

    Howdy, I ripped one board with my circuliatr saw and then gentil prying the 2 halfs out allowed acess to the nails to remove the rest.

    Depends on how it was installed. If it's face nailed, then gently prying along it's entire length will work it loose. You can either clip the nails to free the board or continue prying until it's off. If it's tongue nailed, then using a nail set, drive the nails deeper/all the way through. If it's glued, good luck on salvaging the boards or the unerlaying wall surface.
