tucking carpet underneath baseboard


If the old carpet is tucked under, just put the new baseboards where the old ones are. If not, the baseboards can be installed 3/8 above the floor or down flush. It won't matter to most installers. I prefer that they be on the floor because that makes it easier to trim with a carpet trimmer. But some installers like them raised.
