Removing baseboards when flooring doesn't go underneath them?

3 years ago

We just bought a house and the previous owners installed new luxury vinyl throughout all the main living areas prior to selling. The baseboards in the house are 30 years old and in very rough shape. We'd like to take them out and replace them with something more modern that would match the new flooring; however after removing a section of baseboards we discovered that they did not remove the baseboards to install the new flooring. Rather they just pushed the vinyl up to the existing baseboards and then added a piece of quarter round over the old baseboards to cover up the gap. If we install new baseboards there will be a gap between the baseboards and the flooring. Any advice on this besides just doing new baseboards with new quarter round?
