Im installing molding on a finished Hardwood floor. My question is… the existing base board molding was installed between the floor and the drywall. I found this out when removing the quarter round. Is this correct? or poor installation? I always thought you were supposed to leave a 3/4-1/2″ gap. Measuring from drywall to floor is about 7/8″ to 1″ gap.
The project I am working on is installing new base molding which is 3/4″ thick, Do I attempt to put the molding in the gap or add some sort of shim to the bottom of the wall and then put the molding on top of floor and replace the quarter round?

You are at their mercy. I would install the base at the height as if were sitting on the flooring and then nail on some ¼ round.
