forgot a tile-baseboard question....


what is the best height to set baseboard off the finished tiles? somebody told me 3/8 or 1/2 inch, and then put shoe mold down. but if there is that much gap, how the heck am i gonna nail the shoe to the baseboard? its the avg height baseboard (3.5" ?) with the small ogee at the top. thanks

Never heard of such a thing, I just set the base on the tiles and nail it to the studs.
There is a gap between the tiles and the bottom plate, right?

Yes---base on tile or a touch above it---nailed to studs--then shoe nailed to the face of the base.

Shoe is flexible enough to press it gown to match the contour of the floor.
