In a remodel, my contractor agreed to let me do some of the work to save money. I plan to put in 1400 sf of hardwood flooring.
To avoid shoe mold & make my job easier, I want to do the floors before doors, trim, and paint.
The contractor says floors go last, and shoe mold is normal, but says that as long as I protect the floor, it makes no difference. His foremen don't seem to like the idea. One mentioned that they will have to undercut the doors to fit the floors, which will add to the cost.
The house is being gutted due to a fire.
I am looking at floating vs glue-down over concrete. Is a week plenty of time to allow for DIY? Should I just put down the floors last, including undercutting the doors & adding shoe mold (not my preference)?
