hard wood then base board and where the carpet is going install base board first held up 3/8 off floor if padding is used under carpet. then install carpet
Why elevate 3/8 above the hardwood?jaydevries said:hard wood then base board and base board held up 3/8 off floor
He is referring to the baseboard before the carpet. For the hardwood, you could install it after the floor and just set it on top.Why elevate 3/8 above the hardwood?
now it all makes sense. thankssorry i will edit so not to confuse some one
why not install carpet before the baseboard?3/8 off floor if padding is used under carpet. then install carpet
huh?! :huh:We always did both after, If you gotta come to do one better use of time to do both.
As stated, depends on the flooring one plans to go with....Out of curiosity, is there a benefit to installing baseboard first?
My home has baseboard sitting on the subfloor, same as the hardwood. I'd have preferred to have the baseboard sit on the hardwood and run a little higher up the wall.
