Integrated Baseboard and Baseboard Triangular Wood Vents
Crafted from solid woods, our baseboard vents are made to stand up to generations of use. Because of the way our vents are constructed, they are popular for restoration projects in historic, Victorian era and modern homes, where the detail and quality of every feature is extremely important. At the same time, our vents have a timeless quality that makes them ideal for new or modern homes as well! There are two types of baseboard vents: the ones which fit flat against the wall and the baseboard molding (sort of like the one pictured to the lower left) and the Triangular Baseboard type (the 2nd picture lower right). We have made up to 22-foot-length vents.
In the Wall Baseboard vents, typically we will recommend the louvered style, as the louvers can be placed parallel with the floor and slanting downwards so that floor traffic does not see into the opening area.
What's My Size?
Let's start with what is your Duct Opening Size!
We ask this question so we know for your Baseboard vent if it is a Surface / Flush Mount the size the vent must nest into, as well as understand your air flow size. For Triangular Baseboard vents we like to understand your air flow as well as the area we are fitting around.
Ex. 15.625 wide x 6.3125" high
For your Surface / Flush Mount to be flush within your base molding we need to understand the Overall size if you are restricted. For the Surface / Flush Mount you will have a standard of 1/2" solid border on each side, unless you notate otherwise. If you have an Asymmetrical location or need a larger than standard Overall size we will need you to tell us. Additionally, tell us your surface thickness of your wall or base molding (depending on location) that you want your vent fit to be flush within.
Ex. 17" wide x 10" high x 3/4" thickness of base molding
For the Triangular Baseboard Vent we will need to know the Overall Length x Width x Depth. Typically we use a standard 4" depth, if you need smaller we recommend a Minimum of 3.25" depth so you do not lose to much air flow.
Ex. 22" w x 8" h x 3.75" depth
What is my Wood Type?
If you don't know your wood species, and you are Staining to match your existing wood, we are happy to help you determine your wood match. Simply select any wood on our chart, and add in the Notes & Photo Upload Option a Photo of the wood you are trying to match, and one of our representatives will assist with finding the match or closest match possible. Remember, we will need to make sure the wood grain matches, to help the stain absorb in a similar way. If you are painting your wood, we offer Birch, Maple, Pine or Poplar woods. Birch is the best as it is the most resistant to temperature changes and humidity.
What Stain Color do I need?
All vents are shipped UNFINISHED, unless you request a stain or painting service. This is done so each customer can perfectlhy match to their space.
We use any of the Minwax Oil Based Stains. These colors can also be found at your local hardware stores. If you like, you can also mail a small sample of the wood you are matching for us to use as a stain match.
Still Unsure of Anything?
If you are unsure of anything, rest assured we have an added Notes and 2 Optional Photo Upload sections at the end of your quote request. This allows you to communicate things regarding your fit, location, etc. One of our representatives will review your notes, and address them in your quote if needed.
