Hi, I have a client that wants me to build a closet in one of there bedrooms. They have hardwood floors, how should I attach the bottom plate to the floors??

I would still cut out the hardwood leaving a gap for expansion and attach the plate with tapcons or redheads.I usually prefer Tapcons.Your drywall or base will hide the gap.

bad idea to build over any flooring......esp wood.

Someone before me had done this on my house, as weather changes so did the floor and in turn WALL leading to cracking. as well as pressing the floor down which leaves a dip in the doorway
