I have a similar problem with the hall and
kitchen where i will put tile and cement floor
over the single layer porch flooring.
You can buy 2 street elbows and this will give
you additional height. However, it looks like
$hit, and may off set the radiator from the
Since you did not take off the old floor before
installing the new, you might just use a
forsterner drill bit and drill through the
NEW floor at each leg to let the radiators
sit as before.
If the valve opening is now below the NEW
floor you may be screwed and may need to
cut and extend the riser pipes. This is not
an easy job on 100 year old piping.
If you have stone foundations it will be
almost impossible to work from the
basement as the wall thickness causes the
basement elbow to be on the wall and not easy
to get to.
If you don't like the drill idea. I would
suggestremoving the NEW flooring underneath
the radiator and placing a metal pan or
thin wood veneer to maqke it attractive.
