• Prior to installation, use a putty knife or paint scraper to clean excess material from the wall and floor.
• If you are working in a room that will have carpeting, make sure to install baseboard at least 1/2-inch off the floor. That way, the carpet installer will be able to tuck the carpet edges beneath your trim.
• To speed the work (and avoid unsightly hammer marks), buy or rent a finish nail gun in combination with a compressor, or use a cordless finish nailer.
• The most common baseboard corner is an inside 90 degree corner, and the easiest way to install baseboards to fit this corner is to cut two pieces of the baseboard at the edges and at an angle so they fit together when installed. This is called a miter joint.
• The easiest way to cut really tall baseboard is with a compound miter saw which allows you lay the baseboards flat to adjust the bevel angle.
• Moulding Base has more than 60 baseboard profiles in MDF, 50 profiles in FJ Pine, dozens in Solid Pine, Oak, Alder, Mahogany, Maple, Cherry, Walnut hardwood. Call us 916.917.5701
