Not if you install it directly over the old floor like that you won’t...

Are you installing laminate over real hardwood floors?

The short answer to all your questions is... I am a a moron (is this word still politically correct?) , now some explanation: - we like how laminate looks, but understand is a lower quality that wood. I also like the flexibility of being able to change it every 5-10 years without major hastle, like removing carpet. - I tought about removing the molding, but this old house has three pieces of molding, plus the walls are the old plaster that crumbles if you mess much with it. So we removed the little molding (I don't know how is called) and will replace it all, leaving enough room for the expansion gap. - I used the regular shimming thing the give you in the laminate floor kit. - I haven't thought about the finishing yet, but I'll watch a few more videos. I have to figure out the door and how to make it look nice.

Why didn’t you pull up all of the baseboard?? Would give you extra 1/2 to 3/4” for any mistakes measuring in addition to base shoe. Also, did you get cork backing or just going with the foam? Cork is a huge advantage!
