Great thanks! I’ll call tomorrow. Do people recommend doing painting before flooring or the other way? The painter said do that first then floor since those can get drips and damage. But the flooring place I spoke with said paint takes 2-3 days to fully dry and replacing carpet and floor can get dust and particles into the paint

It takes paint about 2 weeks to fully cure where it is it’s strongest. That being said, paint beforehand and you can touch up when the flooring is done. You will get some scratches and possibly gouges (depending on your layout and carpet style) but it’s easier to touch up than completely paint.

We will definitely paint before flooring and molding go in our basement. I expect quite a bit of touch up because of all the dust but I don’t want paint on any of it
