I hired a handyman to take out wall to wall carpet in my living room to expose the hardwood flooring underneath. Then he cleaned the floor, buffed and applied polyurethane coat on it. Then I saw the stains and holes in the wood floor all around the perimeter of the room, left by the nails (most of them rusty) of the nail strip that held the carpet.
The handyman says the only way to make the floor look good is to hide them as sanding would not help. And he is suggesting to put down a baseboard (flat on the floor butting againest the existing baseboards) as the molding would not be wide enough at the base to cover up. I am not sure if that would look good. Can you suggest any other solution?
Thank you very much.
