Hi! I have inherited my parents 1950's home. My husband and I want to insulate the non-insulated walls. We will have to take down the 5 inch tongue and groove planks to do this. My question is, how do I do this without damaging the boards? We want to put them back up after insulating. I tried in the living room where I know the boards were damaged from previous termite damage just to see how hard it would be. I started from the bottom and cracked off the tongue part to get it out. Would it be wiser to start from the top? I was told to start from the bottom.
Thank you very much for any help, Kathy
