Installing American Forest Wall Base With a Floating Floor
 
Wall base moldings should be installed after the hardwood floor is in place.  You must make allowances for an expansion space between the floor and wall in accordance with the American Forest Hardwood Flooring installation recommendations.  The molding should be fastened to the wall (not the subfloor) to assure that the contraction and expansion space for the floor is not restricted.  Pre-drill the molding to avoid splitting.  American Forest Wall Base Moldings are eight feet long to ensure minimal splices.  This length helps assure that splicing joints will be on a stud.
 
Helpful Tip:  If the expansion space between the wall and the hardwood floor is wider than the Wall Base molding, you will need to use an American Forest Quarter Round molding to complete the job.  In this case, place the lower nail securing the Wall Base below the finished line of the Quarter Round.  By doing this, the Quarter Round molding will cover the lower nail in the Wall Base molding and avoid the need to putty the lower nail holes.
