In reply to Removal mastic baseboards from painted drywall by Wil on January 5th, 2003 11:20 AM [Go to top of thread]

Wil, when you remove the baseboards, even carefully with a wide putty knife, you'll still remove some of the paper surface from the wallboard. If you're planning to reinstall the same base, this is no problem, as it will cover.

One option if your not wanting to do that would be to cut away the roll at the bottom of the base so that you can remove/replace your flooring, then put down a conventional wood base, leaving the upper part of the vinyl base exposed. I suppose this might look a little different, but it would save you from wall repairs.
