Where to Find a Baseboard Cover
LESLIE: Jane in Pennsylvania is on the line and needs some help with a bathroom heating project.
JANE: Well, I have baseboard heat; it’s hot-water baseboard heat in the bathroom.
JANE: And the front cover is all rusting out.
JANE: And I cannot find a cover and right now, I have contact over it so you don’t see the rust.
TOM: Oh. You know, you can actually order covers for those baseboards. There is a company that sells perforated covers that goes on top of them, so it won’t reduce the heat terribly much. I think it’s called – is it Baseboarder, Leslie?
LESLIE: Mm-hmm. Yeah, their website is BaseboardHeaterCovers.com. And they sort of just go where – I guess they would replace that whole inset that’s sort of rusted away on you. You keep your end panels, this piece goes in. It’s a pretty easy do-it-yourself installation. You just have to make sure you measure them correctly.
They’re not going to rust and because the entire piece is perforated, I think it’s going to help you get as much heat out of it as you can. And since yours is mostly covered by the commode anyway – they’re not gorgeous. They’re not terrible, I don’t think, but I mean it’ll do the job for you.
JANE: Alright. Thank you.
TOM: You’re welcome, Jane. Good luck with that project. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
