I need to cut out a sub floor next to my wall.


Answer by  Jim78 (76)

The best way to cut out sub floor next to wall is to use a skill saw. Adjust the angle to of the blade toward the wall. Work slow. A saw-saw is another option but is less skilled approach. If all else fails grab a hammer and a chisel.

Use a reciprocating saw with a carbide blade. Put a block of wood to rest the shoe of the saw on to keep from cutting too deep. Pry out after cutting.
