The Importance Of Skirting Boards
by Marcel Hudson
Lots of different things go into finishing a room so it looks done. From paint to handles and fixtures, there are all kinds of things. When it comes to finishing a room it's the little things that matter the most. While overlooking the finishing pieces is not okay, it happens all the time. Forgetting about skirting boards is one of the easiest things to do. You won't be able to truly finish a room without getting those in place.
This is when you need a good finishing contractor to help you. Skirting boards do more than just finish a room off, they can also save carpet and other flooring. When you lay down carpet you need something to protect the edges. This is where the finishing pieces of board come into play. You want the boards attached to the wall near the floor. You need them to meet the top of the carpet or other flooring. This not only provides a finished look that is pleasing to the eye, but it keeps your flooring looking good.
The next time you're in someone's home, look around. You may notice some things that surprise you when you look at where the boards should be. Some places will be missing boards completely. You will also notice how this effects the flooring. You are very likely to notice the carpet has begun to fray at the edges. While in new construction the carpet won't be frayed yet, it will happen. Wood and laminate floors can experience problems too if the boards are not put in place properly as part of the last step in construction.
You will have spent money on the new flooring so you should protect it by making sure your boards are in place. You also don't want to purchase just any boards. Getting boards that are the correct height and thickness is very important if you want to properly protect your floors and finish off the room.
If you do not install skirting board in your home, you may end up ruining your decoration with damp and mould.
