The kitchen installation was straightforward, but the bathroom in particular required some creative problem solving. Frequently, as homes settle over the years, floors are no longer level, and walls shift out of plumb. This can cause corners to no longer be square. This is normal and is not usually a structural issue, but it does take extra attention to detail to get the finish work just right. This was especially the case in the upstairs bathroom to get the chair rail corners tight. In order to preserve the tile shower enclosure, we modified the beadboard manufacturer’s baseboard product to work in this application. Then we removed the window sill and made a new sill out of the chair rail cap so that the beadboard would slide behind it as intended.
On a side note, we have an employee who is 18 that recently graduated from high school. He installed all the beadboard which required some pretty tight fits and intricate cuts especially around the bathroom vanity, but he rose to the challenge and did an excellent job! We couldn’t be happier with his work ethic and skill beyond his years!
