We recently just finished a condo paintings downtown Toronto, and the customer called us back to do touchups after the new hardwood floor was laid. when hardwood floor (floating floor) has been installed there usually is a gap between the floor and the baseboard.
This is taken care of by a shoe molding which goes over the edge of the baseboard covering the hardwood floor. This gap is required because if the floor is put tight up against the baseboard when it expands it is going to buckle.
After the shoe molding has been installed then it will be caulking and putty to fill the cracks and holes. Then it will be painted With the same baseboard paint.
In this particular case the flooring installers were quite careful not to get any marks and smudges on the walls and trim. For that matter there was hardly any dust on the walls also even though they did do flooring cuts in the condo. These flooring installers in particular were careful not to ruin any of the condo paintings performed on this condo.
When we were called back to do the final paint touchups on the walls and trim there was very little left to do except the odds spots here and there and some other spot that the homeowner noticed wasn’t quite smooth enough for their liking. We replaster to this small cove to make the tiny walls flat and smooth. Then we did walk around and dust off all the dust that was on the baseboard to make the baseboard pop again with a contrasting white collar to the dark beige walls.
