I am a very new home owner (a few weeks) and I recently discovered a leak in my fully finished basement (discovered wet carpet). We had some concrete experts come inspect, $3800 quote later we will be getting some foundation work done.
The room that was moist, did not have sub floor. The room beside this one, has what I believe to be a plywood sub floor (~2 inches above ground). The concrete expert recommended I cut regions of the sub floor to inspect for moisture (so we know if we need to excavate a larger region). To do this, I need to first pull back the brand new carpet and underlay (recently renovated).
Can I simply cut anywhere? Or should I try and cut in certain regions (i.e. outer region of stud), so that I can simply re-screw the plywood down. I bought a circular saw for this reason.
I have minimal experience with anything house related, although I have been Google-ing the heck out of this.
Addition: If I remove an entire panel, should I expect it to be nailed and glued or just nailed down?
