Back in 2008 we launched the original one size fits most easy slip-on baseboard heater cover solution. There's been hundreds of 5 star reviews, numerous complimentary phone calls from customers, and lots of interest from the trade press along the way. But to get the attention of the big box stores, it has taken some serious effort.
A Partnership Made in Heaven
We've been fortunate to have formed a vendor relationship with The Home Depot. Based in Atlanta, this retail behemoth has confirmed Baseboarders are not only a worthy addition to their heating and hydronics product range, but are also offering their customers a far better solution that simply wasn't available before. Retailers like The Home Depot and Lowe's are all about DIY projects; empowering consumers to do renovation projects without the need for specialized skills and tools. Baseboarders® are an obvious perfect fit.
Where to Find Baseboarders® at the Store
Some people might expect to find the easy slip-on baseboard heater cover at their local Home Depot store. Unfortunately you won't, and there're two good reasons for this. There are 24 separate components Home Depot and Lowe's carries and there simply isn't the space for that on the shelves. And then there is the physical size issue. How many products will you find in a retail store that are seven foot in length? Outside of the lumber aisle, not many. Products of this size are simply not retail store friendly.
Thank goodness for the internet. The advantages of using a virtual store are not just about avoiding shelf space limitations, but the opportunity to present sales materials that would never be let into a retail store. Shopping online at these stores offers videos that show how Baseboarders are installed and how they look in various styles of residential décor, photos that give insight into the manufacturing process and technical data that can be studied at your leisure. Since the purchase of baseboard radiator covers require the consumer to take some measurements on their existing old heaters, this selling format has more benefits than drawbacks.
So for the best baseboard heater cover shopping experience, you don't need to run out to your local hardware store. Just go to the Home Depot or Lowe's website and get started. Of course, you could just start right now.
