We bought baseboards today only to bring them home and find that they are not thick enough. You see, since the previous owners before us put up that fake insulating on the outside walls before putting up that wood paneling there is about a 1.5+ inch area on the floors next to the walls that is totally unfinished. There are holes, gaps, some glue and big stain puddles from previous sanding/staining/refinishing of the hardwood floors while that silly wall crap was up.
The baseboards we got at Home Depot are only 1/2 inch thick and with the shoe molding this doesn’t cover up all the unfinished parts of the floor.
I guess we have to find ourselves a custom mill-work place to make us some baseboards that are 1 inch thick.
