Top Baseboards related questions
Baseboards cover up untidy or uneven joins between your wall and floor. This makes your home look more aesthetically pleasing. Baseboards also protect your walls from scuffs, dents, and marks left by moving furniture, mopping, vacuuming, or even regular foot traffic in your home. By installing and maintaining these parts of your home, you also avoid putting unnecessary damage on your walls or the corners of your floor.
This may depend on the supplier you or your Tasker will choose, but typically, baseboards come in lengths from 0.6 m to 4.2 m. They also come in a variety of heights, depending on what you need. Feel free to ask your baseboard expert or get a construction expert to tell you what would look best for your home.
When fitting your baseboards, you should make sure that they are around 1/18 of the height of your room. Usually, they come in sizes ranging from 220 to 400 mm, though you could also ask your Tasker to get ones that are custom-made for your taste. High baseboards tend to suit older houses or those with high ceilings. More modern homes tend to use boards that are 120 mm or shorter.
Measure the wall before marking and cutting each baseboard down to size. Next, use a handsaw to cut at a 45-degree angle. Cut the scribed joint so that boards join at the corners. Next, cut the board to length with a 90 degree cut at both ends, and attach it to the wall with a nail gun. Do the same with the baseboard with the scribed joint, and repeat until all boards are installed.
Skip doing the installation yourself and book a Tasker near you instead! You can find baseboards experts right here on Airtasker. They’ll bring over the supplies and handle the installation, leaving you with more time to handle other home repairs or renovations. You can even use Airtasker to get help with all sorts of construction projects! Finding a roofing expert or handyman near you is just a click away.

What does a baseboard service include?
You can request baseboard fitting and repair right here on Airtasker. Our experts take care of buying the baseboards and bringing the necessary tools for the job. You can also opt to get these yourself and just book this service to take care of the actual labor.
The exact details of what a baseboard expert can or can’t do may vary. That’s why it’s best to make your task post as detailed as possible. This helps potential Taskers evaluate your request better and come up with a suitable offer.
In general, here’s what you can expect when you book a baseboard service via Airtasker:
Baseboard materials and tools
Just like with any other construction job, you’ll need materials and tools. Your tradesman takes care of buying the baseboards, depending on what you specified in the task post in terms of length and height. In case you don’t have anything in mind yet, they may stop by your location first, do a bit of measuring, then go to your local hardware.
They also arrive with the necessary tools in tow. These include a coping saw, ear muffs, safety glasses, a nail gun, a tape measure, and a hammer. If you already have some of these materials at home, you could ask your tradesman to bring only the ones that aren’t in your toolbox. It all depends on your preference and what your baseboard service requires.
Fitting or installing baseboards
Your tradesman begins by measuring each part of the wall and marking the baseboards. They’ll cut the boards at 45-degree angles, then cut the scribed joint. The scribed joint makes sure that the boards line up nicely at the corners of the room.
Then, they cut the baseboard at 90-degree angles on both ends and start attaching it to the wall. They’ll take the board with the scribed joint, cut it to size, then push it against this first baseboard. Once they’re happy with the fit, your tradesman attaches it to the first board.
After that, it’s pretty much the same process all around the room - or every room in your house.
Baseboards protect your wall from wear and tear, so you’ll inevitably have to redo them after years of living in your home. This process is pretty much the same as installation, except that your tradesman has to remove the current baseboards first. This involves removing any cables or obstructions, breaking the plaster, removing the baseboards, and getting rid of nails and screws. It’s a rather tedious process, so it’ll take longer and possibly cost more compared to starting in a bare room.
Working with baseboards can get pretty messy, so it’s advisable to get after-builders cleaning to tidy up your house afterward. Don’t tire yourself picking up after your handymen or construction workers - get cleaning experts to do it instead!
