That's pretty typical when someone pulls out carpet and goes to laminate.

That's what I was thinking ...that would be true with the base. But the door trim?

Yup, not what happened this time. Can see where the casing is freshly splintered from the chainsaw they used to gain a little, um - "clearance".

Yup. If it was carpet first, the door jamb would be sitting on the subfloor.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


The doors and casing were new installs onto the subfloor. I didn't hold the jambs up because I knew it was a thin floor, but didn't know what the client had picked out exactly-they were taking care of flooring on their own.

And I've never seen anyone do that bad a job on an undercut before

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


My practice for the last 20 or so years is to have the baseboards placed up the thickness of the baseboard material - typically 7/16, and the carpys always set the jambs and casing to the subfloor.

Doesn't matter whether its sheet goods, hardwood, carpet.

A good hardwood guy can trim to a snick fit, and it just looks better when the carpet is rolled around the casing and jamb rather than trying to undercut - plus - those jamb legs setting against the floor REALLY DO hold the damned things up - there's only so much an 18 ga 2" nail can do.

Same here as described with carpet. On tile or hardwood doors, casings and base get set on flooring. For vinyl, I have no idea and I don't want to know.

Not to ruin your week, but...



It's in a closet though, so that makes it ok right?

The base is up because there used to be carpet in this area, running shoe today.

Is it just the angle of the picture or is that floor so out of level the door is almost touching when its open?

The floor is out from settling, but it's the angle and shadow making it look worse. It's got about 5/8 at the jamb and 3/8 when open

And yes.....the primed pine is in contact with the shingles

Maybe this is the new way.

In my day, I did lay-on framing and the roofer put in a small valley.
