Skirting Board Replacement
Replacing the skirting boards in your home is one of those awkward and time consuming jobs that almost comes under the skills of a good DIY-er but is also a lot of work. Removing the old ones and replacing them with smart new ones has a big impact on the look of the room and can even add to the resale potential of a property if you are selling it.
Skirting boards are normally removed then the wall behind them is prepared. This can involve finding and removing old nails or other fixings and repairing the damage to the wall. It is also wise to check the nails or screws didn’t interfere with the damp proofing of the house. Then the skirting is cut to size, including any awkward shapes and is reinstalled. Most professionals will use masonry nails or screws, sometimes an adhesive.
To make things easier, rather than being responsible for doing all of this yourself, you can get a professional to take on the job.
