We're looking at getting some Wilsonart Estate laminate flooring installed.
I hadn't planned on installing it myself, so we got a couple of bids on
product + installation. There's some conflicting info I can't figure out:
Bid A is telling me my existing baseboards, which aren't very thick at all
(< 1/2" I think) will be fine.
Bid B is telling me that I'll need new baseboards preferably 5/8" thick, and
my current baseboards probably won't work out.
I'm trying to figure out which guy to believe... obviously I don't wanna pay
for or DIY new baseboards if I don't have to. Thinking totally like a
sceptic, I'd say Bid A may be taking a gamble installing with too-small of a
gap, and Bid B is trying to get me to install fatty baseboards to make his
install easier (assuming more gap allows for more slop).
But I really have no idea. Does a more precise install job produce a
smaller gap? How much gap do I really need here?
