Damaged Tile Floor Grouted To Baseboard - Should Baseboard Be Replaced?


 

In this scenario the damaged tile flooring is grouted directly to the baseboard.  As you can see in the close up on the third picture the grout is not exactly on a straight horizontal line.  The grout fluctuates in height along the length of the baseboard.

When the grout is chipped away from the baseboard it will leave a footprint where the grout used to be.  There will also likely be chips on the baseboard from the removal as well as tool marks.
