A Truly Modern Look
While some describe it as “techy”, the ultra clean lines of the Basic product line are a refreshing alternative to the 1950’s style that has dominated this industry. On this product we use a slightly thinner gauge of galvanized sheet steel, but fear not, the hemmed bottom edge of the panel and top two brake forms still maintain a very rigid profile even on the long 6′ lengths.
Baseboarders® Basic is the ideal choice for a pairing with contemporary decor styles. It’s quite simply an unbeatable value for your renovation dollars.
- Clip to capture the hemmed bottom edge of the panel.
- Embossed logo for authenticity.
- Endcaps are fabricated in 22 gauge galvanized sheet steel.
- Panels are fabricated in 24 gauge galvanized sheet steel.
- Holes are 1/8" in diameter to allow proper airflow.

I replaced the rusted out old Slant-fins in my laundry room and bathroom with these and it was worth every penny. The Slant-fins were a bit less expensive, but it would have taken me much longer to replace only to have them rust again eventually. I work from home and any time I can save doing house repairs can be devoted to my business which is a much higher return for my time invested. I am also a stay-at-home mom, so like doing repair projects myself when I can because then I know it's done right. These installed in minutes and look great. Easy to trim to size with a hacksaw (to help cut thru the hem) and tin snips and finish edge with a metal file. No issues with shipping or anything. Planning to buy more as others around the house need replacing.
Very easy to install and it took approximately five minutes. A huge improvement from the previous dented and rusted cover.
I bought this to replace the baseboard cover in the front hall, which was falling apart. It was very easy to install, even with the heat on (the temps were close to zero, so I didn't want to turn the heat off). They look a lot better than the old baseboards, and without the big slot the baseboards are essentially toddler-proof. The baseboard covers in my kids' room is also falling apart (again, toddlers). I plan to replace it with this.
Excellent quality, durable finish and thick metal. Install was almost too simple. Ensure you clean your fin tube and surrounding area while the old cover is off to ensure you have efficient heat.
Super easy to put on. Looks great. Way better than the standard dated ones your probably trying to replace if you’re reading this. You don’t need to be handy to put on. No tools required. A child can do it without instructions.
Amazing. These covers are astoundingly easy to install and are beautiful. A real addition to rooms. Great job!
I just wanted to take a moment and let you know how VERY pleased I am with my baseboard heater covers, delivery time and customer service! Thank you very much – they look great & were as easy to install as the YouTube video showed!
I recently did a renovation on my home. Of all of the products I researched and watched tutorials for Baseboarders heater covers were the only product that was as easy to use and install as the video made it appear. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a clean and modern look for their home baseboard heating.
