After having the flooring replaced in the kitchen, I’d like to replace the existing cabinet toe kicks with an extruded aluminum profile. I’m having a difficult time finding something on the net. Any cabinet makes out there with a source for this?

Hi Wuddoc. I found them earlier today and called. First call was an answering machine. Second call I spoke with someone and they said they will have to get back to me. Hmmm? They do have a nice web site though lol But thanks for trying!

Yeah Duck you’re no help ;p

I’m having a little trouble understanding the actual location of the toe kick.
are you talking about the board that is under the cabinet that is recessed back about 4”
there are aluminum “baseboard” type of materials – is that what you are referring to ??
I googled “aluminum baseboard extrusions” and “Aluminum Kitchen Cabinet Skirting”
all kinds of stuff pops up.

Here might be another way to go if you just want to cover what you have.
https://www.amazon.com/Amerimax-66004-Aluminum-Roll-Flashing/dp/B000H5RSN0/ref=sr_1_18?ie=UTF8&qid=1533049126&sr=8-18&keywords=zinc+flashing+roll

You can also find it in 3 1/2” wide if 4” is too wide.

Flashing is very thin but if you want aluminum why not just use flat bar? Like this https://www.onlinemetals.com/merchant.cfm?pid=1131&step=4&showunits=inches&id=997&top_cat=60

You can probably get it cheaper at a local supply house or welding shop, in lengths up to 20ft

There are tons of metal laminates to chose from as well.

I forgot I posted this. Thanks for the responses. I came across these sites – The Cabinet Spot – as a viable option and this site – Stainless Steel Toe Kick. Just have to check availability and shipping/lead time info.
