weil-mclain snug baseboard

Jim_44 Member Posts: 23
Does anyone out there have any advice/thoughts on the Weil/mclain cast iron snug baseboard? Just doing my homework before my contractor comes over. I have looked at Burnham baseray which I think is veeeery nice but the W/M snug baseboard seems shorter than the baseray which might be usefull because my electric outlets dont have enough clearance for baseray which has almost 10" of height. Getting back to the question-- is the W/M snug Baseboard a good and reliable product? Thanks, Jim

    W/M snug

    I have never installed any myself, but as with any Weil product, you're getting quality stuff. Have lots of it in my customer base and never a problem with it. We sell a lot of Weil Boilers and thier products and support are second to none. Hope this helps.

    CI basboard

    I put these in my basement when I finished it off last year. Love 'em !! But they are pricy. I paid about 30 bucks a foot for them at the local supply house. Unions were extra (and also expensive!). But when it comes to baseboard heat, you just can't beat cast iron.

    Weil McLain Baseboard

    The Burnham is, in my opinion, a more attractive product.
    I have some Weil McLain baseboard and it works well, no problems in 15 years. Mine measures 9-3/4" though, seems about the same as the Burnham product.

    WM baseboard

    I've installed lots of the WM Snug Baseboard. It's a good product, although the end covers are pretty ugly. We've done a couple of jobs where the board was recessed into the wall and wood end covers made. When it's painted the same color as the wall (enamel, not latex paint) you can hardly see them. Be sure to use union 90's on each end. If there are any pieces longer than 6' the installer will need a Weil McLain assembly tool to press them together.

    Love that WM iron

    I put some salvaged 7 inch high WM iron baseboard in 20 years ago in a experimental room [ one with double stud 12 inch thickwalls ]. Only needed a little of it. It works great! A little on the homely side . Made my own boxes to cover the radiator els at each end. Made them only high enough to cover pipe, so it steps down from the full height of the iron. Looks good. go for it.
