You want the floor to have room to move. Rather than breaking out tools and cutting the floor back, I would run that reducer through the table saw. Cut off the bottom stub then use silicone and some 23 ga pin nails to fasten the top half of that reducer in place. If you like you can even rip the remaining piece of reducer down to 1”, 3/4” or whatever you like.

I don't know how big the room is in regards to how much gap you actually need. You could also cut off the front face of that molding and it would remove the angled portion, which is about a quarter of an inch. Like CJ said, just run it through the table saw before cutting it for width. You would need to use a scrap piece of material under that overhanging lip as a support as you push it through the saw. For butting up against something, that angle doesn't make it look any better, so if it was me I just remove it.

Hi,

Back again..looking for suggestions for around the fireplace. I've seen undercutting or quarter round or other?

I think undercutting would be a lot for me..but I'm not sure. I do have a 4 inch grinder. If quarter round, does it get glued with constrction adhesive.

Thank you
