    You'll need more than a screw extraction kit if they really won't shift....using a new and correct size screwdriver, what's happening?
    Are the heads shearing off or just rounding?
    At the end of the day, expect quite heavy losses if you lever the boards up or have to do much cutting.

    Hi thanks for your reply we stupidly started trying to remove with the drill and attachment... Now we are using a hammer and the screwdriver it's much better.... Just wish I didn't have such good ideas... Lesson learnt
