Quarter Round with New Carpet
Hello. I am having carpet installed this week. They company that is installing the carpet was going to charge me to remove and install new quarter round. I told them I can do it if need be. What is the correct way in doing this. My entire house has base moulding with quarter round on the bottom most of the house has hardwood floors, some floors just had carpet over them. I refinished the hardwood flooring in the dining room, hallway, and foyer. The rooms that are going to get carpet is the living room and master bedroom. In the master they had carpet installed wall to wall and just had the carpet against the quarter round it was never removed, can't I just do that? My reason is because when they put carpet in the living room and the quarter round going into the dining room from the living rom and the hallway if I remove it and put it back on after the carpet is install it will not sit even how it is now because it will be raised from the carpet. Suggestions?
