    "Yes, can replace the radiator with a wood floor, the floor doesn’t always need to come up depending on size location. Etc"

    "Yes.
    If you do not want to lift the floor you can purchase the same size radiators.
    However, if you can’t due to the old imperial size you have then have to purchase slightly smaller radiators and add radiator extension on either side to suit existing pipework."

    "Hi Yes, this can be done. The floor may need to come up in order for the radiator to be changed. The new radiator would need to be the same size that way no pipework would need altering....which would be cost-effective for yourself."

    "Yes, if pipework needs adjusting you can alter pipes above the floor, though not as pleasing to the eye"
