    We removed our baseboards, mostly so I could convince my wife I need a pneumatic brad nailer. Also, I used a flat shovel to pull up the tack strips and most of the staples. Didn't have to use the pliers much at all.

    Quick question....bought an old (REALLY old) farm house and was told by a number of people that putting down a floor patch or thin set was a bad idea as over time, from the foot traffic, that those products would break down to basically powder and I would be back at square one...any thoughts?

    Great video, the floor looks fabulous. The prior owners of our place put vinyl plank flooring throughout, it has dips and separation in the kitchen, 1/4-round on the perimeters, guess they didn’t watch your video.

    If you've done this as long as me, you wouldnt need a power tool not once. You can handle that entire job(very simple room) with a square, decent utility knife, white grease pen, 28 oz deadblow and tap block, and maybe a pull bar. As for your rip out, you can cut the carpet out first, then the pad can roll up in its original sizes( keep a pice to roll up your tack strip in) so much faster. Then use a 9 inch razor scraper to get all those staples left over without having to spend 56,000 years using pliers......yourwelcome

    Prime that subfloor before placing the quick level or you thin set. All that paint and drywall texture on it will make it easy to crack, chip and you will be left with that clicking you tried to avoid a few years down the line..... ugh or do it right and avoid the vinyl flooring and tile it like should be done

    You forgot the sound proof underlay(light foam) which is a big thing in europe. it can also be used to level out the floor by doubling it up.

    Am I missing something? Nobody has said anything about the fact that if you remove the base board because you don't like the look of quarter round, you then will need to repaint the walls due to dropping the base board. I don't like quarter round much either but it beats repainting.

    People use everything as a excuse. Like selling cars. ‘ clear coat coming off, it’s a Dodge thing, Chevy thing’. No it’s called not waxing your car twice a year. I’ve never had clear coat problems. If you don’t like waxing, they make tools.

    If you're doing the job for a customer, you're not gonna want to get involved with pulling out the base trim and creating more work and possible damage to the trim and wall, unless they specifically want that done and they're willing to pay for that. Plus, you may have a caulk line or paint buildup from over the years that you'd need to sand out and/or cover up with joint compound. I see people saying to use taller trim, but you want the trim to match the rest of the house. A taller trim won't match. If it's an older home, you may not have anything available that matches the old base trim exactly either. Also.... what happens if you need to repair the flooring for some reason.... then you have to pull all the trim off again?

    Floor prep at the beginning is the most important item. Especially if you have a floor that is old and had maybe 3-4 different carpets put on it over the years. best thing is to remove every carpet nail. Then walk around and if there's any squeaks, put in some wood screws. On my second floor, it made it to be really quiet for 20 years and running.

    Baseboards off is generally good advice, but that little caulking ridge left behind because the reinstalled baseboard is now lower can be problematic later, in that it must be removed to look good and then there is the matter of a paint touch-up or paint the entire room, which is the better option. Quarter-round would be easier, or as I would prefer, a trim called shoe-mold, which looks a little tidier. A very well done video with great tips. Thanks!
