Construction Performance Guidelines
GAP BETWEEN BASEBOARD TRIM AND FINISHED FLOOR SURFACE
Where baseboard trim abuts finished flooring, gaps in plain view that are in excess of 3 mm are not acceptable (except at transitions between different finished floor materials).
One-Year - Work and Materials
Minor gaps caused by normal shrinkage of materials due to drying after construction are excluded from the statutory warranty.
Baseboard installations not meeting the acceptable condition shall be repaired.
Surface variations in natural or manufactured stone tiles are considered to be desirable characteristics of the product and may affect how tightly the baseboard trim can be fitted to it. In addition, minor irregularities in flooring surfaces are also considered to be normal. In areas where hard surface finished flooring is installed, an additional trim molding like a quarter round or shoe molding, is an acceptable practice to conceal minor gaps between baseboards and the finished flooring.
