Angelo, January 27th , 2013. How To & Repair: How To Install Baseboards.

How to install baseboards is quite easy to practice so that you don’t need to hire a professional in order to get the baseboards installed to the walls. Why don’t you try to do it yourself? It will be cheaper since you can save you don’t need to spend your money to hire a professional.

There are three steps in how to install baseboards. The first step is, measure the width of each wall in the room you want to install the baseboard. This will help you calculate how much molding you will need. It will be better if you buy the molding 15% more than what you need so that you can do some tests and enough for replacing mistaken measurement.

Before installing, stain or paint the baseboards, measure the wall twice to cut the first piece for the corners and cut a 45 sloping at both ends of the boards, then nail the baseboards every 16 inches to the walls. Do the same cut for the mating piece and test the fit against the installed piece. Typically, it is 90 degrees, but you sometime need to increase or decrease the angle of the miter or saw until you get the right joint.

After that, cut the joint on the board so that it can meet the other baseboard in the corner. Cut the other end at 45 degree angle and continue the process. Cut the butt joints to meet the moldings of the door-frame and furniture pieces. Measure the outside corner of the wall and transfer the measurement to the back of the board and mark the spot to sign where the blade will enter the wood from the back. Tap the nail-heads below the surface and fill each of it with a dab of wood putty. Wait it to dry and sand the putty, then paint or stain with a small brush. The steps of how to install baseboards above can be practiced whenever you want to install baseboard to your walls.
