Baseboards Are an Important Element in Your Home
Baseboards are sometimes overlooked, but they are an important element in every home. Often among the last finishing trims to be applied, baseboard moldings have the important job of filling gaps between your wallboard and floors, which ultimately works to protect your walls while simultaneously creating a cohesive aesthetic. Thoughtfully selected baseboard moldings can really add to the overall design and feel of a room.
Steps for Baseboard Installation
We follow best practices and take the following steps to ensure a quality baseboard installation process.
The first step is generally to remove old baseboard trim by cutting along the top of the board before prying it away from the wall. This is followed by thoroughly removing any nails, glue, or caulking from the surface under the baseboards.
Measuring the room’s perimeter for the new baseboard trim is a process that requires meticulous care. We always make sure to get exact and precise measurements in order to ensure your baseboards are a perfect fit.
Once we have your measurements, we can get down to selecting and purchasing your materials. You have several options when it comes to how many components to use for your baseboard installation. You can include up to 3 components. The central baseboard is mostly flat and comprises the bulk of the baseboard. Additional components can include cap moldings that run along the top of your baseboard as an ornamental detail, and a shoe molding, which is an ornamental flourish that can be added between the bottom of your baseboard and the floor. We’ll make sure we select the materials you prefer for your project.
We’ll establish level on your floors and then scribe the baseboards before cutting them perfectly to size.
After sanding and priming the cut baseboards, we can begin installation. We’ll nail the boards in place and apply molding and caulking where necessary.
We can then make touch-ups and apply a final finish before we clean up the work area and leave you feeling fully satisfied with your brand new baseboards.
