Likewise, people ask, how do you fix a gap between baseboard and laminate flooring?
You can buy it in just about any color, so matching the floor is usually pretty simple.
- Vacuum along the gap with a vacuum hose to pull out any dust or debris that's in there.
- Insert the caulk tub into the caulk gun.
- Jam a 3-inch nail down into the hole to break the seal inside.
Similarly, how much space do you need for T molding? The standard width of a T-molding strip is 2 inches, and the standard height is 5/8 inch. The base of the T-shape can range from 1/2 inch to 3/4 inches wide. Leave a 1-inch space on the floor to accommodate the base of the T-molding strip.
Simply so, do you have to take baseboards off to install laminate flooring?
For convenience, proper floor installation, and to save money, remove the baseboard during the installation process and reuse it with the new flooring. Since most types of laminate are not secured to the subfloor, the baseboard will help hold it securely into place.
