Gap under floor trim.


How do I fill the gap under my floor trim? I don't want to remove the trim...any suggestions? I still need to grout some areas, but obviously without something for the grout to sit on, that'll cockle later.

Thanks

Steve

Your missing the 1/4 rd.
As poorly as the floor was laid your going to have to use 3/4 now.

You put that floor down without removing the trim?
Forget about more grout.
Shoe molding will fill the gap.

Thanks for the quick replies...the floor was originally installed with the trim embedded between the tile and wall. For a variety of reasons, when I replaced the trim I decided to not embed the trim in the tile, thus a gap. I like the shoe molding idea as it will spruce it up anyways...

The baseboard was suppost to be sitting on top of the tile not setting in the grout.

Who said it was in the grout? From what I see it looks good too.

I wouldn't say it's IN the grout.I'd say the tile is too far from the wall and he tried to fill the gap with grout.

Unfortunately that's not the way tile ends should end up as the grout will hold no purpose resulting in what we see in the photo.

Actually,there should not be any grout at all at that spot on the tile.
The molding generally covers it.
