Good day, I am building a new house and I am looking for some advice. For window trim and baseboards I am installing mdf and I plan to install both the window trim and baseboards prior to installation of the floor. I say that because I am planning to HVLP spray the window trim and baseboards, and I thought it would be better to spray the baseboards before the floor is installed.
I am installing engineered hardwood (already bought) and I was thinking to glue down the floor. I thought this would be best since this is a vacation property and the year round indoor temperatures will vary from about 50F to 80F. Couple questions:
1. Do you agree that glue down of the engineered hardwood is the best approach?
2. Can I install the hardwood after the baseboards are installed? I thought of installing the baseboards after the flooring but it would make the painting of the baseboards difficult (hard to properly tape the floor). I am looking for the best overall method.
