Traditional Skirting

Period skirting boards are available in a variety of profiles and moulding patterns.  You can easily find a good match for the existing skirting in your period home.  Traditional skirting is used to decoratively cover the lowest part of the wall in any room. If you do require one of our old fashioned skirting profiles in a different height, please contact us.  We can help you with sizes up to a maximum height of 300mm.

Wooden skirting boards are fixed in place using nails and/or a solvent based adhesive.  Start by measuring your first run and then mitring any corners at 45 degrees.  Once you're ready to fix your Victorian skirting board in place, generously apply adhesive on the wall behind and then push the skirting into place.  Nail the skirting boards in place with nails spaced at approx 1-foot intervals.  Repeat until all of your skirting is in place. You can fill the nail holes with wood filler, and then lightly sand before you paint the skirting.
