Baseboard covers??

It sure if these are wood but assume so as they come unfinished. I emailed him asking what type of wood. Anyway we really want see but some people said we will reduce the amount of heat given off in the room significantly as wood is an insulator and not a conductor. Just an fyi we will be using the slant fin front cover, just the back wall price and brackets so that should help. Just looking for a little more advice. Thought about getting them unfinished and creating a slot on the top like he shows on the front.

You'll lose some radiant heat being they are wood. But should work okay.

Attractive but I suppose it makes baseboard air dampers inaccessible for adjustments.
