    Default New Slantfin cover for old baseboard heat

    Hi there,
    Quick question. I'm doing renovations to my place and I had to get rid of the baseboards because they have about 9 coats of paint and I want things to look good. Here's the deal. When I got the new baseboards from Home Depot, the fins were protruding out. My friend told me that I had to turn the fins 'up' so they will fit the profile. The baseboard does fit (as you can see in the second pic) but the fit is tight. I didn't put in the piece that opens and closes the heat opening yet. I don't want to replace the entire element because that will involve replacing all the elements and money is an issue now (Plumber is cheap but can't afford it). Do they make baseboard covers that will fit instead of turning every fin up? That will take me hours to do! Look at the pics below. Thank you for your time.

    Andrew

    Why not just renovate those ugly old heaters?

    That post was from almost 2 years ago, i'm sure they tried something then.

    Why don't you go away and stop spamming this board?

    Posting useful links (in your opion) is not helping people with questions they ask and also considering you are answering posts years later will probably not help them now.

    The only thing it helps is you and what you are trying to sell.

    How about just renovating the ones you have?

    and the one i like the most from "User" "Tonytony" and "he" said
