My three-family house was equipped almost 30 years ago with American Standard (now out of business) baseboard heat. The baseboard covers are old, dirty, rusty, falling apart, and sometimes missing pieces, especially in my tenants' apartments. They're a real eyesore, but the heat still works, and I'd like to get new covers, endpieces, etc. to make the tenants' units look more cosmetically attractive, since I'm doing the places over (painting, new sanded floors, etc.) and looking to raise the rents for new clients.

Can my plumber replace the covers using "dummy" baseboard units or in some other way that isn't going to break the bank?

Please don't even bother suggesting Overboards or the even more ridiculously priced Radiant Wraps.

Help!!!

I'm beginning to think you're right. Do you have any idea whether or not this is difficult and expensive? I estimated that there are about 170 linear feet of baseboard in the apartment.

Thanks for your quick reply.

You would be crazy not to take a look at these new slip on covers. No tools are required for installation. You simply pop them on. The cool thing is they come with lifetime warranty and free shipping. Take a look!

This last guy is obviously selling this over priced junk. Really, you could buy this kind of screen meshing for two bucks a yard. Rip by all these sellers.

There are a lot of things made cheaply, but you pay more for it for the convenience. If I could build it myself, I wouldn't be searching for a manufacturer.

I had the exact same issue & found a nice site that sells all these cover pieces at reasonable prices. End caps are less than $5
