    What he said.
    If it was an apartment or section 8 housing, I would probably have just fixed the missing / broken strip and went with it.

    And yes, I have rarely seen so many nails heads at or higher than the pins![/QUOTE]

    When nailing strip, I want to see the impression of my hammer head in the wood.
    Not break the strip, but make sure the nail is well seated into the strip.
    Wood or concrete.

    In my opinion if the base is raised the distance the TS is from the wall isn't that big of a deal. I would never strip it that way myself, but I'm not going to R&R it either most of the time. If the base is on the floor then the strip has to go. Or in extreme cases, I'll just put a new piece of strip in front of the existing.

    I'm working on a house this week that has the nicest strip job I have ever seen, I'll try to remember to take a picture. He used 9 pieces of strip around the doorjambs, and they weren't even all that fancy. I probably would have used 5 and the majority out here would have done 3. Not sure how necessary it was but it sure is pretty. :)

    That's all good until the next guy has to tear them up to replace the carpet with wood flooring. :rolleyes:
