Please Help With Baseboard Identification

Docfletcher Member Posts: 487
Our baseboard is from around 1994 and some of it is pretty rusty. I'd like to replace some parts of it. So if you can ID it would be a big help thanks.

    Argo baseboard ,no longer made. Would have to dig through my files to see who bought them out.

    You can refinish them if you want. My local hardware store carries paint for those. Forget the brand name. Sand with a very fine sandpaper to get the shine off. Painted mine in place. Lots of taping off though. How do you keep your fins so clean?

    Argo was bought out by Mestek.
    They make several different brands.

    What I need to replace is way too rusty to paint. As far as the clean fins go I vacuum them ever so often. I've seen various replacement covers which mount over the baseboard online, all are very expensive.

    Kcopp, I will check out Mestek. Thanks for the information everyone.

    To good to be true? Look what I found when I did Argo baseboard search.
