Default Disconnecting stove

Going to have vinyl plank flooring installed and all the installers say we have to disconnect stove and water for ice machine ourselves, any suggestions on people that do this? Have they gone over the linoleum in kitchen?
Also, for any that have had this flooring put down, did they remove the baseboard or leave it and put in quarter round?
This project has become an expensive one and want it done right.Thanks

I think I would look for a different contractor who can actually do the job that needs to be done.

If they do it right they should remove the baseboard. No problem putting over floor covering.

Agreed. Remove baseboard.

OP, you did not mention the dishwasher, from real personal experience, if you are installing the new flooring over the old, you may not have sufficient vertical clearance to remove the dishwasher when it fails. You need to check this!

removing the old flooring & replacing w/vinyl plank probably won't reduce the headroom you'll need for the dishwasher but a GREAT reminder from tink,,, many co's, from experience, don't want the liability of gas/water issues,,, we removed baseboard too

We replaced our laminate with vinyl planking last summer. The installers did not have to remove the ice machine line because there was enough length to work with it still attached, so you may want to check this out. Perhaps the gas company would remove and install your gas stove. We had enough clearance for the dishwasher because the new floor was the same height as the one removed. Having baseboard removed is a personal choice. Bringing the flooring up to the baseboard and using quarter round is also a nice look. And more importantly, it saves cost of replacing the baseboard, and the wall may be damaged during the removal. It's not realistic to use the same baseboard in most cases.

We used Floor Masters on 301 in Wildwood. They disconnected and reconnected everything and removed toilets and reinstalled. They did use quarter round on all baseboards. They did our entire courtyard villa in 2 days. They removed all carpet and linoleum. It was expensive, but we were very pleased with their work. The only problem we had was nothing to do with Floor Masters, the door jams put in when the house was built did not go down to the cement under the carpet and now that we have the vinyl flooring there is a very noticeable space between the floor and the beginning of the jam on all the doors.

OP, you said you want it done right. Doing it right will involve removing the baseboard and all the appliances. Using corner-round is primarily to cover up something (walls not square, hasty remodel, not laying out the new flooring to see where seams fall, etc.). If they remove the baseboard carefully you should be able to reuse it and caulk the seams/nail holes and then repaint. Another issue to consider is if you have any transitions from the new flooring to existing flooring. If the baseboard wraps around that transition the difference in flooring thickness can lead to other challenges (such as needing corner round to cover a gap if the new flooring is thinner, having to rip the baseboard to a different height if the new flooring is thicker, etc. I've seen in some homes where they have mitered the baseboard at the transition to account for this difference and personally I think it looks cheesy (but less expensive).

VillageTinker is right, you'll want to make sure you have the right clearance for your diswasher to slide in/out with the new flooring. 1/2" can make a big difference in some homes. Your installer should be able to measure for this with no problem. Removing the gas stove and the connecting line for the ice machine should not be a problem for a competent installer either. As with a lot of projects, a few extra hours of prep work will pay off in the long run.

Ask a lot of questions of the installer and make sure they know what you want and you have confidence they can do the quality of work that you are looking for.

As a former contractor, the gas stove will not be a problem provided there is a separate shut off valve and flex line for it. Pull the stove out, (you may need to tilt it forward to release it from a "tip over" catch), turn the valve off, remove the existing flex line. When reinstalling, use a new flex line. Same method applies to the refrigerator, minus the tip over catch. Usually the dishwasher does not have to be removed. The base board does not have to be removed, but to do the job right it SHOULD be removed because the height of the plank flooring and the height of the quarter round will interfere with the design of the baseboard. The flooring folks should include replacing the baseboard in their estimate, because saving the old baseboard is far too time consuming. Done carefully, there will be very little to no wall damage. I would offer to help for a very minimum charge, but the tricky part comes in reinstalling the stove and fridge without damaging the new floor. Usually that is a two man job.

Roberto’s disconnects the gas and water lines and puts if needed.

They charge $1 a square foot to remove the linoleum under tile no need to do this for vinyl plank.

I did tile and had the base board removed because I had quarter round already they could not reuse the base board so had new. If you reuse they will remove it and reinstall and paint it $2.50 per foot. If new baseboard the cost was $3.50 per foot.
