Removing baseboards to cut costs?

4 years ago

Hi there,

I'm embarking on an interior repainting project for my condo, and I'm planning to hire contractors to do most of the work. As part of the project, I'd like my baseboards replaced.

I'm trying to decide if I should just remove them on my own to cut costs (and leave it up to them to install new ones), but I'm getting results like this (see pict) so it looks like there will need to be some drywall repair done.

Do you think it's worth the trouble for me to remove the baseboards given the need to have them repair the drywall later? I could also consider repairing the drywall myself...Thoughts?
