hello,

I need about 10 ft of the original baseboard for a house in West Houston that was built in 1963. They tear alot of houses down in this subdivision. Any one know where they take salvage trim to?

Appreciate any help.

What's the style of the house? Some from that period have ugly ranch casing, don't they? You wouldn't want that in the name of going original, I think.

That sixties stuff goes in the dumpster. Just cruise the area and find a house being gutted or demolisded and ask for 10 ft. Really not hard to find a house with a dumpster in front of it on almost every street in West Memorial or West houston. Contractors will most likely let you dumpster dive for it.

Really the only original things they salvage on those home are the brick and copper pipes.

Look for fencing to go up in front of a house before they tear it down. Then just go in and take it before the demo it. Hopefully you can catch someone there and ask them. I doubt most would care. I would let you do it.

I just got rid hundreds of feet of that stuff when I replaced my floors. Send me a pic and dimensions of what you want and I may have a piece in my garage.

Or try Bison. They may have what you're looking for.

Try some of the Habitat for Humanity ReStores places. They may be able to help you.
