: I know nearly nothing about home repair but am dying to learn and will do the work to ask questions and research. So please be kind...
My situation is that I bought a 1979 split-level house. The upstairs has fake wood floors. It used to have floor molding, but we pulled that out. We want to replace it with new molding. But it looks like what happened is that the old molding was put in FIRST and then the floor was put in afterwards. So now that we've pulled out the molding, there's a gap between the flooring and the wall. Do I have to find the right depth molding to fill that gap in? Or a deeper molding and have it on top of the flooring?
Let me know if my description doesn't make sense at anytime. I'm not verbally skilled with home repairs.
