I am finishing my upstairs and almost done other than a few odds and ends with the baseboards. My question is regarding the space between the stairs and the wall as it relates to carpet and the board between the wall and stairs. I have approx. anywhere from maybe an inch to a little over an inch maybe between the wall and stairs. I know most people put like a 1x10 board or something to fill in the space there. Should I already have the board in place BEFORE the carpet is laid OR should I wait until the carpet is laid and then install the board? Either way it is going to be a tight fit I am sure but who can work easier the carpet guys trying to install with the board already there or me trying to squeeze the board in after the carpet is laid on the stairs? What is your suggestions? Thanks.
