How to install a hardwood floor: without removing the existing baseboard?……is this possible? Everyone I’ve talked to says to remove the existing baseboard before I install a new hardwood floor….now I hear something different…..that I can save my existing baseboard, I paid an arm & a leg for, & I can just install the hardwood floor without removing the baseboard. How would that work anyway? Will this work in every case? That would mean a huge savings since I wouldn’t have to pay for new baseboard to install, not to mention the cost of the baseboard material, the time to install the baseboard before installing the hardwood floors, & the cost to caulk & paint the baseboard, cleanup, etc.. How is this possible? I would like to know if………hold on pupster………..Watch “joe” show you how to install a hardwood floor without removing your existing baseboard…..maybe this will work.

        Would a granite tiled entryway look nice going into a hardwood floor? or should it be hrdwd floor all theway?

        Question by Michael R: Would a granite tiled entryway look nice going into a hardwood floor? or should it be hrdwd floor all theway?
        My spouse and I seem to disagree on which looks better. I’ve always felt that a stone tiled entryway gave a good first impression of “Wow, nice place” (let’s pretend,$$ is no object)
        My spouse thinks that you are not supposed to break up the hardwood floor. There is a defined entryway and after that is the dinning rm,kitchen,and hall way which are all going to be hardwood floors.
        Does any body out there know where I can find pictures of stone entryways leading to a hardwood floor? Or is this not to be??

        Best answer:

        Answer by professor grey
        I have porcelin tile in my entry way. I had hardwood originally that traveled throughout our first floor but I got a lot more wear at the entryway. Since installing tile, it’s easier to keep clean and less dirt travels into the main living area’s.

        What do you think? Answer below!

Make sure the subfloor is level before you put down the underlayment. 4. Notice the red underlayment that sits on top of the plywood subfloor. 5. Lay down your guidelines on the underlayment. 6. Lay the first plank of flooring along the guideline with the with the tongue side facing towards you. 7. Place spacers between all walls and the planks for the expansion gap. 8. The first few rows will have to be face nailed. Start by pre-drilling a hole every 6 inches then use a nail punch to set the nail and wood putty to cover the hole. 9. Stagger the planks to strengthen the floor and give it a nice look. You will need to cut the first plank in half to start the staggering. 10. Lay the plank face down on your chop saw. Make sure you use a flooring blade/ trim blade. 11. Face nail the first 2 rows before you use the blind nailer. 12. To blind nail hold the nailer against the tongue then hit it. 13.
