Homeowners can see damage to baseboards and trim around the home over time. When you look into replacing the baseboards and trim, consider replacing the trim and flooring together. Because they are located in close proximity and they work hand in hand, remodeling both together will save you time and money. Rosewood can help you replace trim and flooring together to improve the look of your home. Our team knows how much damage your flooring can see throughout your lifetime, so give your home a facelift with our experts.
1- Replacing The Flooring Requires To Remove The Baseboards
If you are looking to replace just your flooring, you will have to remove the baseboards anyway in order to install it properly. Replacing trim and flooring together makes the most sense because taking off baseboards could also damage your flooring. Keeping your life intact and saving you time can be made easier by scheduling these two projects together.
2- Make Sure You Have The Right Tools
With any home remodeling project comes the need for quality tools. Having the right tools will help make the remodeling process easier, especially when you are doing all of it yourself. Common tools needed for replacing trim are a utility knife, a pry bar, a miter saw, measuring tapes, hammers, and a nail gun. Knowing how to use the tools correctly is also important before you start ripping up flooring and trim. Replacing trim and flooring together will require some of the same tools, so purchasing the right ones will save you money. Replacing trim and flooring together is just one way to save you money during a remodel by combining resources.
3- Buy More Trim Than You Think You Need
Before beginning any project, you should measure the space for how much product you will need. While you can take measurements for the trim you need, it is a good practice to purchase more than you need. This gives you some wiggle room if you make a mistake, cut at the wrong angle, or there is a problem with the product.
Finding the balance between overbuying and underbuying may be tricky, but you won’t want to break your budget just for fear of ruining the trim you truly need. Taking the time to plan out your project and do research can set you up for success.
4- Paint Trim Before Installation
When you are replacing trim and flooring together, you need to remember what order is best to complete the projects in. Painting the trim before you install it back on your wall will prevent you from dripping paint onto your newly installed flooring.
Painting beforehand will also help you to see if the trim color matches the flooring and wall. Different paint batches, while they may be the same color, can look different over time. Painting the trim before it is installed helps homeowners avoid frustration in repainting and replacing it.
5- Measure Door Clearance Or Replace Them
If you are already combining home projects, replacing your doors can be another good timely project. Replacing the trim around your doors can also change the fit of your original doors, so finding new ones in a new style may be your only option.
Changing doors will increase the value of your home and can help to move from room to room go much smoother. When you are replacing trim and flooring together, including new doors can make the whole home complete. Choose doors that fit your style or the function of the room. For example, choosing doors for a bedroom may need to be thicker for privacy, whereas closet doors may have decorative paneling.
