How to Order

Click on the Tabs below to see all you need to know to enter your information in the custom order form

  • Give Each Heater Cover a Name

    Each Heater Cover should have its own name or number to identify it.
    This makes it easy for you to know what goes where when your order arrives, and it helps me keep track of things in the shop as well.

    For instance, If you have 3 heater covers going into your Living Room you could name them : Living Room 1, Living Room 2, and Living Room 3.
    If you have heater covers going into different rooms you could name them Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen etc.

  • What Style of Cover Do You Want?

    You can pick from several styles of baseboard heater cover. Choose the design that appeals to you. Also, The standard heater covers vent from the top. If your existing metal cover has a large solid top more than 2" deep off the wall that may block air flow, and you  and you do not want to remove the metal covers entirely then you may need  a cover that vents from the front instead of the top. Let me know and I can alter the design to suit your needs.

  • Detail on Right and Left End

    Specify whether the Right End and Left End are Open or closed.


    If the metal baseboard meets a wall on the left or right end then you should enter an "open end" detail for that end.

    If the cover does not meet the wall, but  instead meets your baseboard moulding,  so that the end of the heater cover is visible then specify a "closed end" detail


    Baseboard Heater Cover - End Detail Open

    End Detail on Left End is Open

    Baseboard Heater Cover - End Detail Closed

    End Detail on Right End is Closed

  • How Are Your Walls Laid Out?

    In the section labeled Wall Layout in the order form below, click on the picture that matches the layout of your walls. After you make your selection the appropriate fields will open below it for you to enter the length of the walls.

    Take extra care if you are ordering a heater cover for an odd niche, or under a Bay window. Click on the section for Bay Windows for more information.

  • Bay Windows

    Our heater covers look amazing under a bay window. If you are ordering a baseboard heater cover to fit under a bay window, take a few minutes to determine the correct details so that your covers will fit properly.

    In particular you need to determine 2 things.


    1 . After you choose the style of heater cover  and the material or finish you want on the order form, Browse the "Wall Layout" section and Choose the wall layout that matches your needs. This will open the correct lines for you to enter the length of the walls that will be covered by your new heater cover.

    The baseboard heat in your bay window may be laid out in a number of ways.  I have given selections for all the common scenarios. If you do not see a good fit for your needs use the information request form below to let me know, I will work with you to quickly design a solution for you.


    2 .  Determine if your bay window has 30 degree angle walls or 45 degree angle walls. Click the links below to download and print  drawings which you can use to determine which type of bay window you have.



  • Length of New Heater Covers?

    measure length of heater cover

    When measuring for the length
    of your new heater cover
    be sure to include space
    for the thickness of the end cap.

    After you choose your wall layout on the order form, the appropriate fields will open for you to enter the length of your walls.
    Enter the length of your wall, or walls in inches, written as a decimal, i.e. 50-1/4" would be entered as 50.25


    If the end of the existing metal baseboard cover meets a wall (an open end detail), measure to the wall,
    if the end of the metal cover does not meet a wall, but instead meets your wooden base moulding (a closed end detail) measure to the edge of the base moulding.  The easiest way to do this is to slide the end cap on the metal cover up against the wooden baseboard moulding and measure to the end of the metal end cap.




    The CLOSED END CAPS on the new wooden heater covers are thicker than the existing metal covers and   require a space of at least 1/4"  between the side of the heat pipe and the wood base moulding.


    If you do not have the minimum space you will need to trim the wooden base moulding to allow the end caps to fit.

    A space of 3/8" to 1/2" is ideal.

    After you trim the base moulding to allow for the end cap, slide the metal cap up against the wood base moulding and measure the new length which includes the space.

    Another option is to  cut a notch the in the side of the endcap  so it can be laid over your moulding. If you tell me the size of the notch you need, I will cut it for you.


  • How Tall Should the Heater Cover Be?

    measure height of existing metal heat cover

    Enter the height in inches from the floor to the top of the existing  metal heater cover.
    Enter the height as a decimal. I will add 1/4" to this number so there is a little space between the metal cover and the bottom of the new wood heater cover.

    The height in the photo is 7" exactly so you would enter 7.0
    Measure the height in several places and enter the greatest height.



  • How Deep Should the Heater Cover Be?

    measure depth of existing metal heat cover

    Enter the distance in inches from the wall to the front of the metal heat fins.
    The depth in the photo is 2-7/8" or 2.875, but it would be wise to add a little "breathing room" I would increase the depth to 3.0
    I will add 1/4" to the number you give me to add a little space between the metal fins and the wood heater cover.

    Measure the depth in several places and enter the greatest depth.

    Hi Tom, These covers look great and I have an ideal place for one: my dining room has a “standard issue” metal cover that is in a highly visible location and I’d love to replace it with your ogee edge cover. I’ve entered the dimensions and am close to being ready to order, but want to make sure I’m ordering the depth correctly. Where you’re asking “depth of heater fins,” I’ve entered 2 inches, which is the exact depth of the fins. But I’m wondering if you then add more depth to account for the space needed for the cover, or whether I should be calculating the added depth when I place the order. Thanks! Best, Tom

    • tom

      Hi Tom,
      Measure in several places and give me the largest dimension – measurement you see. I will add 1/4″ to the number you give me, that will be the dimension for the depth inside your heater cover.
