Baseboard/quarter round?

footwedgeJune 23, 2011

When is the correct time to place the base board, before or after placing split brick?

Also, is quarter round normally placed when the floor is tiled

Split brick?

A 7/16 x 3/4 +/- "shoe" molding (less often a quarter round) is often used when the baseboard has already been installed or if the detail is consistent with the house design and historic period.

Is that a 1"+ thick kind of paver/tile?
If so, there's no perfect answer; the tiles vary, and are never set to a perfect line at the perimeter, so it's always a low-down dirty job to scribe the woodwork to it, but it's IMO uglier to grout up to already-placed baseboard.
