“ I cannot say enough good things about this product OR about the ease of ordering. As a new homeowner, I have faced tough choices between quality vs. cost. I can say this was one moderate investment that was not a battle. These baseboard covers instantly updated the dining and family room of my 40's Cape Home. They are beautiful! In addition, when I was ordering the live-chat feature assisted me with my measurements and made sure the covers got to my house in record time! Thanks for this excellent product, I cannot wait to order more for other parts of my home! ”
“ Hello! I ordered two baseboard covers on 12/19/17 at 1:21pm, and was happily surprised when they arrived today (12/22/17)! You were right about the easy install, I probably had them installed in two minutes each! I feel the covers enhanced the appearance of your bathroom renovation. Thank you very much and we look forward to the long-life of your product. ”
“ We had the worst covers in the entire building. They had been painted over so many times, just nasty. We had painting done, new flooring, the covers and new window treatments all in sequence. I ripped the old covers off and our painter installed the new covers. We have had so many compliments and I would like to especially thank you for going over the measurements with me to ensure a perfect fit. ”
“ We are getting ready to order more. ”
“ I installed the covers and they look great. I am waiting for my daughter in law to take some pics. It was not necessary for me to use the clips to raise the covers. The covers ended up being about 1/2 inch from the floor and look great. I will be updating my living room in the fall and will be ordering more covers. thanks again for all the help. ”

“ My client is very happy with her new baseboard covers. Last year we had replaced covers in both bathrooms. She liked them so much that this year we replaced all covers in the home. Great product! ”

“ I wish I could afford to replace all of them, but with having some as long as 10-11 feet, it could get quite expensive and I do have several as it is a larger home. ”
“ The baseboard cover worked fantastic! Sorry I did not take any pictures. I ordered one for our bathroom and it went on in less than 5 minutes. I will definitely order more when I need them. Thanks. ”
