Skirting boards are available in a variety of profiles and designs, from which you should find a good match to your existing skirting in your period home. If you do require one of our skirting boards profiles in a different height, please contact us as we should be able to help with this, up to a maximum height of 300mm. 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 skirting in place, generously apply adhesive on the wall behind where you are fixing the skirting in place and then push the skirting into place. Nail the skirting 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.
