I've been reading posts about hardwood vs engineered hardwood and I'm
now convinced that hardwood is better for my household because there
are no chemicals to outgas for years to come. Thanks to all who have
weighed in on this issue, it helped immensely.
I haven't seen any posts that deal with the issue of what to do with
existing baseboard and mouldings.
I will be removing an old parquet floor (Bruce was the mfr, I
believe)that I installed as DIY 15 years ago. It was my 1st time and
there are areas where I laid down too much glue so there are a few
humps that would create a problem with a new floor so it must come up.
there will not be enough clearance for a new 3/4" floor to slide
under the baseboard and door mouldings.
So what do I do? Must I remove all the mouldings and then re-install
after the new floor is laid?
Thanks for any advice.
