Can anyone sell me Argo \"Panel Trim\"

Hi. I posted a while back about Onix staple up under Brazilian Cherry and some suggested replacing my current baseboards with Double-Tier Argo baseboard. Well, I called the Argo rep to find out where it is locally sold. No problem.

It turns out that they only stock Lo-Trim and not the Panel-Trim (which can be double-tier). I also get the impression that they do not have much experience with the Panel-Trim and might sell me something that I do not need (or the wrong items). Not to mention feeling snubbed, since I'm not a contractor.

I know most on the boards here are in the heating business, so you may not feel the pains I have experienced over the years. Namely, I am a perfectionist with a 100 yr old house and am not a millionaire. This means that I prefer to do all/most the work myself. I've been working on the house for over 5 years and can prove that people like me do not get much respect whe it comes to home imporvement and restoration from distributors as well as retailers. So, enough whining

Lastly, I have a list of materials required (Argo Panel-Trim). If anyone can get me the materials I need. Please reply.

Thanks for your understanding and help.

    a heatloss/ energy audit and figure out what you need for heat...if not I think you are just guessing...It might be that there is too much baseboard for one pipe...do the math. kpc

    Heat loss

    I've done an online heat loss calculation and it looks like I'd be sufficient by the 30% increase that double-teir would give me. I've also decided to add an extra few feet in my foyer (chimney effect).
