1.Mastering Measurements for Skirting Boards

Accurate measurements are the cornerstone of a flawless skirting board installation. DYM outlines the key steps to ensure precision:

lRoom Perimeter Measurement: Begin by measuring the entire perimeter of the room where skirting boards will be installed. Record measurements for each wall segment individually.

lCorner Considerations: Pay special attention to inside and outside corners. Measure the lengths of each wall segment between corners individually to accommodate variations.

lDoorway Dimensions: Measure the lengths of skirting needed for areas around doorways, maintaining a continuous and aesthetically pleasing flow.

lIncorporate a Buffer: To account for potential errors and ensure a snug fit, add a small buffer (typically 5-10%) to your measurements.

2.Precision Cuts for Seamless Installation

Once measurements are meticulously recorded,DYM emphasizes the importance of precision in the cutting process:

lSelect the Right Tools: Utilize high-quality tools such as a miter saw, coping saw, or handsaw for precise and clean cuts.

lAngled Cuts for Corners: Employ a miter saw to cut skirting boards at a 45-degree angle for corners. Ensure both angles match perfectly for a seamless joint.

lCoping for Internal Corners: Address internal corners with a coping saw, allowing the first skirting board to fit neatly against the second by cutting the profile.

lFinishing Touches: After cutting, sand the edges of the skirting boards to remove any roughness. Apply finishes or paint as desired for a polished appearance.
