I like tight joints, as well. We had a new floor put in our rental house. What a bunch of goofs. They went around and cut the door casings anywhere from 1/2" - 5/8" from the floor. The casings are nowhere near the new flooring. They used base board and left 1/8" - 3/16" gaps and filled them with caulk. Butt spliced the joints instead of making a run with a new piece or scarfing it. We were selling it, so I just ignored the shoddy work. The new owner gutted the kitchen, anyway. All new cabinets and floors.

One of my sons used to work for a high end contractor. He spent a lot of time making sure things like real mahogany wood crown molding were installed right.
