Adding skirting boards to a property can give a high quality finish to your interior decoration. Skirting boards help to cover any small gaps between walls and floor, and they may also improve heat efficiency by removing drafts. Skirting boards will help protect your walls as they are very resilient themselves and can take the deterioration.
Skirting boards come in numerous mouldings to suit any style of interior decoration. They could be installed to the walls either by gluing or using screws and nails. Skirting boards can be installed in a DIY fashion, but a professional painter and decorator can also be used as a way to assure that the finish is as clean and tidy as possible. When putting in skirting boards, take care when measuring and cutting to reduce wastage, and be aware that any section where skirting boards are joined together, like around doorways or in the corners of rooms will need a different kind of cut known as a mitre to guarantee a neat fit with no spaces. Also take into account the kind of wall that the skirting boards will be fitted to, as walls with damp proofing in them will require glue as screws or nails could break the damp proof seal, whereas with stud walls the studs themselves will need to be located and used as fixture points for the skirting board.
