The installer who completed the job, with the t-molding in the hallway, completed work on a similar condo in March. In that one, we left on the baseboards and he added a "cove" below the baseboard. I thought it looked very nice.
This time, because I was also having the place painted... we removed the baseboards and replaced them after the floor was installed. The installer did leave a small gap between the wall and where the floor begins.
The baseboard removal and replacement was done very poorly, by a "friend".
(I have learned not to accept help from friends... and to just pay someone who knows what they are doing)
I am having the baseboards re-done when the floor gets fixed. Is there somereason why I should have shoe molding installed, or is the existing gap... that will be under the baseboards be sufficient?
All of the comments, are really helping me with dealing with the floor installer.
