Unhappy Creaky Floorboards on Concrete


I've got a concrete sub-floor with 70+ year old, original floorboards nailed on top. The wood has warped over time and now they squeak.

Has anyone got any suggestions about what I can do to silence them?

Completely silence them? Tear it all out. But you don't want to do that. Top nailing and praying it works, is about all you can do. Drilling and gluing takes some skill so you don't drill too deep on a wood subfloor.
