Premier Flooring & Baseboard Installation

Reading / Lancaster Baseboard Installation From Top Industry Professionals


Baseboard installation in your home can be a time-consuming and frustrating task. It is also one of those jobs you need to get right the first time because it will be challenging to fix any mistakes later on.

If you plan to install new flooring or renovate your bathroom or kitchen, installing baseboards is probably not at the top of your list of things to do. You may have more immediate decisions to make in order to get the floors you want. To help with this vital step of flooring installation, Footprints Floors provides top-rated baseboard installation in Reading / Lancaster that will ensure your renovation goes smoothly without costing you more time or money than necessary.

Baseboard and flooring installation in Reading / Lancaster - Footprints Floors.
Why is Baseboard Installation Necessary?

While many homeowners do not consider baseboards in the flooring installation process, the majority of the time it is necessary to remove and reinstall baseboards to properly take out the old flooring and to install the new.

Switching from a thick carpet to thinner wood flooring can make repositioning baseboards necessary as well. If not done right, a gap could be created between the bottom of the baseboard and the new flooring that used to sit flush on higher flooring. In cases like this, it is necessary to remove the baseboards and reposition them lower down. When installing certain types of flooring like vinyl and laminate, the baseboards are as functional as they are decorative since the flooring is not directly attached to the subfloor and the baseboards are needed to hold it securely in place.

If you plan to update your baseboards simultaneously as you install new flooring, professional installers from Footprints Floors can handle everything from removing and repairing to reinstalling and re-positioning your baseboards.

Baseboard Installation Styles


Baseboards come in a number of profiles and materials. The baseboard style you choose can make a significant difference to the overall aesthetic of your room. Even if it seems like a small detail, it can make a huge impact on the finished look.

When you are renovating a house or planning to build one, pay attention to the trim and moulding options available. Some are more appropriate for certain parts of the home than others. Consider the overall aesthetic of the space and whether you should opt for a traditional or modern style of baseboard. Choosing the right type of baseboard is essential and depends upon several factors, including the style of your home, your chosen flooring material, and your budget.

Flat


For the most simple and clean baseboard type, this modern style is an excellent option. For a room that has a more minimalist look, you may choose to have flat baseboards installed. These are most often found in craftsman and contemporary homes. Regardless of the interior design style, the basic baseboard style is versatile and will work well in any room.

It’s generally a good idea to opt for MDF baseboards since it's a more affordable material than solid wood, has a very smooth surface, and can easily be painted. Most baseboard styles, including flat, are available in MDF.

Profiled


The most traditional baseboard available is the profiled option, also known as rounded and stepped. It offers a combination of clean lines and intricate curves. Within this category are many cuts, heights, and thickness options. They are typically available in MDF as well as hardwood, and even flexible styles, which are best for curved walls and staircases.

Jointed


Two-piece jointed mouldings are a combination of flat and profiled pieces. Curved profile caps are added to the flat moulding in endless variations and can achieve a sophisticated, unique end result. They are typically a higher baseboard and make a strong statement. Because there are so many cap profiles and sizes, and because they require expert installation to ensure the lines between the board and caps are seamless, this baseboard type is best installed by a professional flooring contractor.

What Our Customers Say

  • Where do I start, right from the moment I met him Doug was clear, concise and on point. I had a tight deadline that I was certain couldn't be met, but even with the flooring taking longer to acclimate, they still got it done in time and it's beautiful. I really can't sing their praises enough. A fantastic job, for a good price and the installers (Junior and his team) were also great, nothing was too much trouble plus they needed a sense of humor with my house, nothing ever goes smoothly and no walls are straight!!. Would definitely highly recommend and from here on out I won't use anyone else.

    Jonny Challenger 08/1/22 — google
  • The work they did sanding and refinishing our floors and stairs was excellent. We had a question about an area that was finished and they came right out and took care of it. It turned out that the area was done just looked different in the light.. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. I will use them again when we do our kitchen over.
    Ryan Strait 07/27/22 — google
  • We called several companies and footprint was the most timely in responsiveness and professional with quoting. They were able to quote us site on seen with pictures from the MLS of the new home we purchased but didn’t settle on yet. They did an amazing job ridding of pet stains and bringing the 1969 Red Oaks back to their former glory!
    Nicholas Edgett 07/12/22 — google
  • Doug and his professional team of floor refinishers did a beautiful job on my living room and dining room floors. I’m happy to recommend them and would use them again.
    Laura M. 06/29/22 — Thumbtack
  • I'd spent over a month working on my floors myself before finally calling in the pros at Footprint Floors. I had a quote within 2 business days and due to a convenient opening in the schedule, my floor was done 7 days from when I first called! The price was average, not cheap, but affordable enough to do a third coat of finish and get some boards replaced. My only advice would be to request to inspect post-sanding and prior to finishing. I had one hole that missed getting filled and a stray shaving in a dark corner of a closet. It was all taken care of, but it would have been better to catch it before finishing.
    James Seedorf 06/29/22 — google
  • Doug is very professional. The communication with him before, during and after the job was all very informative and decreased anxiety the project in our home. Very minimal dust was present after the sanding phase. The completed product is gorgeous and we couldn't be happier. Doug does a final inspection to ensure customer satisfaction. Follow up email after job was complete with care instructions was greatly appreciated!
    Stephanie Mader 06/24/22 — google
  • Doug walked me through the entire process from start to finish. He thoughly explained each step along the way. He started on time and finished early. The floors look brand new. We could not be happier with the entire project. I would highly recommend Footprints Floor for any refinishing project that you undertake.

    Tricia Flowers 05/6/22 — google
  • Doug came out to our house, free of charge, to look at our hardwood floors and give us advice on how best to improve them. Prior to him coming out, we spoke on the phone about our home's floors and what we wanted to do with them, and he quickly let me know that he was not the guy for us to hire (he didn't offer the service we were seeking). Because he wanted to help, however, he made the trip here just to give us more information about our floors and to give us advice on the best way to proceed. To be clear, he drove all the way to our house knowing that he would make no money for doing so, just to help out a couple of DIY'ers. He's an honest guy that clearly has kindness in his heart. I know this review is supposed to be about the business and not the owner's character, but I think the two go hand in hand. If we ever need any work done on our house, Doug at Footprints floors will be our first call.
    Matt Chalupa 05/2/22 — google

  • Doug and the team were great from start to finish. From my first inquiry, we were able to scheduled an in-person walk through, discuss flooring needs, and receive the estimate with a very quick turn around. Doug got us scheduled within 2 weeks and the project took place over a couple of days. The pine floors in our home were very dark, due to previous owners staining and re-staining over the years. Footprints Flooring was able to do a dustless sand, which left very minimal mess, and restore our pine floors to their natural beauty! We had a few repairs to some of the boards, which came out great as well. Doug was very helpful in deciding staining options/finishes. Ultimately he assisted in our decision to leave the pine floors natural in color and do multiple coats of oil finish- and what a PERFECT decision that turned out to be. We love our floors- thank you Doug and team!

  • Doug has been a pleasure to work with. Great value for money. They did a fantastic job installing LVP flooring for Life Plasma's Reading PA center (8,000 sft.) on a tight timeline. They got it done ahead of the committed date, which is a rare occurrence these days. Strongly recommend Doug for commercial and residential flooring projects.

  • Doug and his crew were great! We hired them to install flooring on the main level of our home and the upstairs hallway. They arrived on time, got to work and completed the job in 2 days. The crew cleaned up each day and their work is great. We are very happy with our new floors!
    Marty Sane 04/4/22 — google
  • Working with Footprints has been such a breath of fresh air. Most contractors treat you like they’re doing you a favor just getting back to you, if they even get back to you at all. Not so with Footprints! Doug provided timely quotes and expert technical advice throughout the entire process of having our pantry and powder room floors redone. Thank you Footprints for being prompt, professional, and precise. We only wish we had decided to do this sooner! Jason Birdsboro, PA

  • Used Footprints Floors to refinish wood floors that were 16 years old with many scratches. The final outcome, was exactly as promised and what we expected. Doug and his Team, were on time and kept us informed during the process. There was a minor issue along the way but Doug was professional and cared most that we were satisfied with the end results and quickly took corrective action. If looking for a Company, that puts Customer first, I would recommend them.

  • Doug and his team completed our hardwood installation and we are very happy with the results. The work is high quality, and Doug was very responsive and professional during the entire process. We have more flooring projects to do in our house and Footprints Flooring Tri County will definitely be our first choice.
    Wendy Gerhart 02/4/22 — google
  • Doug was very professional. His knowledge of wood flooring and refinishing was impressive yet he was humble enough to admit he didn't know it all when he was faced with a challenge at our house. His team of flooring contractors were on time every day and they did a great job of refinishing our floors. I couldn't have asked for anyone to communicate better throughout this whole process as he was always available through text or phone. He let me know when his team was showing up, he sent update pictures each day, and let me know when his team had left the house so I could go back over and lock up. I would recommend Footprints Floors to anyone looking to have their hardwood floors refinished.
    Zach Martin 02/1/22 — google

  • We work with a LOT of vendors on various projects and frankly stumbled across FootPrint Floors by pure luck! They are going to be our vendor of choice going forward on all of our wood flooring needs. They were prompt, great attention to detail, went above and beyond to make our floors look amazing after 50 years of abuse by previous owners. They are not the cheapest, but you get your money's worth, trust me! send the time with their team talking about options and you wont be disappointed! Thank you for the great finish, our son's home looks amazing!!!

  • Very impressed with Doug and the Footprints crew! They did a great job replacing our carpeted stairs with new wood to match the railing and entryway. It looks great and the team was professional and courteous throughout the whole process. It was a good quote, good communication, and I love the look of our new stairs. Thank you!

  • We had a faulty dishwasher that leaked a lot of water. The water got under our EVP flooring and it had to be removed to dry. Since we have continuous flooring throughout our entire first floor, it all had to be replaced, not just where it got wet. After the restoration team completed their work, we had to find someone to install new flooring and remove the remaining, undamaged floor. That's when I found Footprints. I got several quotes for the job and they were all similar. However, most places were scheduling out 10-12 weeks. Doug came out and gave me an estimate (the day after I requested it) that was a little lower than everyone else. Plus he was able to come out within two weeks to do the work. The team from footprints showed up on schedule and began removing the old floor and installing the new floor. What I thought was going to take a week only took them two days! Not only were they fast, they were very professional. The crew that was in our house were very respectful, polite and courteous. I had no problem leaving for work and letting them there to work without anyone home. Doug was in contact with us throughout the process and was very responsive. The floors turned out GREAT. My wife and I are thrilled with our new floors and would highly recommend footprints to anyone who's in need of new floors. 5 stars from the time we had an estimate (which was late on a Friday afternoon) to the time the work was completed. If you're looking for new floors, or someone to install them, call these guys for an estimate. You won't be disappointed!

  • Doug and his team did a phenomenal job installing the flooring at my new business location. Doug was super responsive, helpful, not pushy, and super fast! I couldn't believe that we had the flooring completely installed in my 1018 sq ft space within one week! It looks amazing. Thank you!
    Katie MacDonald 08/30/21 — google
  • Vince did a great job on my new flooring and Doug made sure everything was set up and ready to go. Vince was very courteous and prompt. Doug came and made sure the work was done correctly and efficiently and even helped with disconnecting and reconnecting my fridge water line. I would definitely recommend them to others
