I know, Marq!! No matter what I do, I'm still going to have to somehow scrape up all the old paint!? There's nothing that can just go over the old paint? What a nightmare . . . :(

I am aware that my removing of the tile was the problem - I'm not expecting the flooring company to come fix the problem or give me more flooring free or anything. I just thought they might let me...

Hi guys - thanks for all the info. I think some of you are confused about the issue, though. The problem isn't the gap at the top of the vinyl baseboard under the tile . . . the problem is that...
