What if I Already Have Baseboard?

If you’re renovating your home, you might be wondering if it’s possible to install new baseboard over existing ones. The answer is yes. By installing new baseboard directly over the existing baseboard, you’ll save yourself the hassle of removing the existing baseboard, patching up any holes or damage, and sanding the walls. However, In many cases it is best to remove old baseboard and start fresh, especially when you are replacing your flooring. By hiring us to do your flooring, and baseboards you will get a better result than simply installing flooring and baseboard with old ones in place.

Should baseboard be glued or nailed?

In some cases depending on wall surface and baseboard material (pvc), it is best to use glue. Places like kitchens, bathrooms and wetrooms will often utilize waterproof baseboard that can crack if nailed through. For wood baseboard you will typically want to use nails for longer lasting results, but you can also apply glue when using nails for extra durability. Ask our professionals for details.

How do I fill in gaps between the baseboard and the wall?

Use a caulk gun to apply a line of caulk along the gap between the baseboard and the wall. Smooth the caulk with your finger or a tool to create a seamless finish.

How do I maintain my baseboard after installation?

To maintain your baseboard, dust them regularly with a soft cloth or vacuum attachment. If they become dirty, clean them with a damp cloth and mild soap solution. You may also need to touch up any scuffs or chips with paint or wood filler.

What type of caulk is used to finish baseboard installation?

Baseboard can be a great way to add an extra element of style to your home, but if you want them to last, it’s important to choose the right type of caulk. The best option for most baseboard is a flexible silicone caulk that can withstand movement and expansion. This type of caulk is waterproof and will not crack, shrink, or peel over time. Look for a caulk that is easy to apply and dries clear for a professional finish. If you’re not sure which product to choose, talk to our experts. With the right caulk, your baseboard will look great and stay in place for years to come.

Do you install the baseboard or flooring down first?

When installing carpet, you will typically want to install the baseboard first for easier installation and to make sure they are level with the floor underneath. When you are having new hard flooring such as tile, laminate, vinyl, or wood, opt for installing flooring first, then installing the baseboard. This will help to leave room around the perimeter of the room for any movement of the flooring, and then conceal the gap with the trim (baseboard).

Can you remove the old baseboard without damaging the walls?

Yes, you can remove old baseboard without damaging walls, or minimizing damage if done properly. By using the right tools and having patience, you can save a lot of patch work. Our professionals can remove your old baseboard for you if you decide to move forward with us. We take care of the dirty work, so you can get the best possible finished result, without the hassle or stress.

Does a new baseboard add value to a home?

Yes! By updating the look of your home, and adding a layer of protection to the walls, you will inevitably add value to your home. When you walk into a room that has new floors and new molding, it sells itself. People looking to buy a new home often don’t want to have to update or fix anything right after purchasing. By having everything done already , you can add real and perceived value to your sale price. Another great value add is that you can often claim depreciation on your taxes for home improvements that you invest in (always check with a professional CPA for details).
