Hiring Baseboard Installation

Regardless of the type of building you will need to have baseboard installed. This finishing touch protects your carpet or whatever type of flooring you have as well as finishes the room. Protecting the base of the wall is the purpose served. Without this in place you are likely to experience frayed carpet and damage to the bottom of the wall.

Now you know you need it, but you still need to find a baseboard installer. You want it installed properly so that it not only looks good, but is also very functional. Finding someone who can do a good job of this is usually not too difficult, but you should still follow a few steps to make sure that you end up with a quality contractor. Regardless of the type of contractor you should follow these steps.

The first thing you should do is ask around to see if anyone has suggestions or recommendations for you as to whom you should work with. You can save yourself quite a bit of time and trouble if you can simply get a good recommendation from someone. You can also look for additional candidates in your local phone director under the type of contractor you’re after. In this situation, looking under the finishing contractor heading is probably the way to go.

One of these three may be suitable: skirting boards
MDF skirting board
Oak Skirting Board

Once you have a few names on a list, you will want to start going through the interview process. An in depth, in person interview may not be as necessary if the only project your hiring for is the installation of the baseboards. However, each contractor should be asked the same series of questions as part of the interview process. You will also need to get a bid and a reference list from each candidate and then it will be up to you to follow up with each of the references and find out more about the work that each candidate has done.
