In new construction it may work out more often. Sometimes it depends on how the job is run, who gets there first etc. In theory doors should go in over the flooring because you have to cut the jambs most of the time anyway. However the doors usually go in first and then the base using spacer blocks to allow for carpet and or flooring. Tile and wood flooring usually end up with a gap either under and/or between the base and flooring, Shoe is added to finish that area off. Builders don't like allot of workers trampling all over there new carpet and wood flooring if they don't have to.
Good thing about this forum is to learn new things. Procedures that might be obvious to you are done differently in other parts of the world. Not to say that one way is better than the other and aestetics is all a matter of preference and what you are used to.
What I meant to say in my remark was that if I hade done a job in that way it would have been considered as scamp work and my abilities as a carpenter would be questioned. If you do it it is a natural thing. Funny thing with cultural differences

Cultural differences make for interesting differences. I don't think it's an "all the cases" type of application. I've done installations where base shoe wasn't specified, or needed. Then, there are those times when it's a necessity. It really boils down to the aesthetics.

In an installation that requires new flooring, leaving the base moulding, and installing all the new floor under it seems counterproductive. I've never seen it done that way. Of course that doesn't mean it isn't done that way.

I think the advent of laminate flooring in the States has really popularized shoe moulding. It is quick and easy to lay the floor and pop down some quarter round. Our home store industry markets the two together. I have pulled base up at times before puting the floor down and used no shoe moulding and I have done it the quick way. Just depends on what is expected.

As mentioned, just do a return pc.

Couple examples;









We work on turn of the century homes. Most base is 8" tall and all have several profiles.
Once you do a few rooms with this type of build-up you can handle just about anything.

That's some good illustrations Shamus.

Here is one for you, years back I had a fellow who wanted shoe mold in a bedroom that was going to get carpet. Strange fellow but that is what he wanted so we held it off the floor 1/2 inch like the rest of the base.
