I'm installing 1/3 inch tongue in groove engineered wood flooring in three bedrooms, a connecting hallway, and two stairways. The hallway is a problem. There are two sets of stairs. One drops off of the right side of the hallway and the second stairway drops off of the left side. I have bullnose pieces to install over the old stairs and the tongue of the engineered floor boards needs to face the bullnose. How can I reverse the direction of the tongue in groove planks so that the tongue faces the bullnose on the left side of the hall at one end and then faces the bullnose on the right side at the other end of the hall?
My second questions is about placing the bullnose. Is there any easy way to cut off the rounded end of the old bullnose so that the new bullnose piece fits tight over the old one?
