Hi, I recently moved into a "fixer upper" and my question is... How Do I repair the 4 in gap between the wall and the floor? Not sure if the wall was damaged when baseboard were removed or what. The room I'm working on was originally a garage.
I have seen many garages where the drywall does not go all the way to the concrete. I would think it is because of keeping the drywall dry, lol, if water gets into the garage. Anyway, why not just add a new baseboard to fill the gap. You could cut strips of drywall to shim out the backside of the baseboard so it will be in the right place. Are you able to see studs below the existing drywall going down to the floor????? or is it concrete??

Add backing, if necessary, to cover exposed framing and get it flush with the drywall (drywall, plywood, whatever you have available of the proper thickness). There are several different widths of base available to cover the gap.
