Floor refinishing (2)
#7
  
I am having my hardwood floors refinished starting September 9. I have never had the floors refinished previously so I don’t know what to expect. Specifically, how close to the walls will they be able to sand? I am pondering the idea of removing all the quarter rounds from the base boards and then reinstalling after the floors are done. Would this be a reasonable task and allow for a better finish? Or would it be a waste of time?

I pulled up the shoe molding when I refinished my floors.  I don't know how you could do a good job otherwise.

They can get real close if they are pro's.  For me - I have always pulled up the corner rounds.  This way you get a better looking sanding job.  I would pull up the trim; they may even do that before they work.  Call them.  It should have been part of the quote.

Always use the right tool for the job.

What john said ... I think they would pull the shoe as part of the job. Ask them.



If it can't kill you it probably ain't no good. Better living through chemicals.

+1 on this. When I had my downstairs redone they pulled all the shoe mould before  and replaced it with new once done.

Yes they will (should) & should re-install, but I would do it myself

.

Also, if you think they baseboards need painting, this is a good time to do it.
Everything is a prototype so its a one of a kind.
