Types of Baseboard Moulding

Baseboards are one of the types of mouldings that hold visual AND practical advantages.

Base molding, also known as baseboard molding, is a decorative trim that is installed at the bottom of interior walls, where the walls meet the flooring. Its primary purpose is to cover the joint between the wall and the floor; however, it also helps protect the wall from scuffs, scratches, and wear. It comes in various styles, sizes, and materials, allowing homeowners to choose the type of baseboard molding that best complements their interior design and decor.

They did superior project for the columns on my front porch. The house will be 100 years old in 2024 and the parts of the columns they made fit the time period. The 1st photo has the new torso made from Spanish cedar installed under this column and the remaining torso beside it. All 9 are now installed. The 2nd photo is the same column with the rotted torso.
