With many old properties we see lovely ancient skirting boards, often produced in two parts and installed onto traditional lathe & plaster walls. It can be quite an undertaking to remove existing skirting so in some circumstances we will advise, or you will prefer, to leave skirtings in place. This is not a problem as we can install our oak and stone flooring up to the existing skirting and infill the small expansion gap with oak mastic or silicon to match the grout colour. It is therefore not necessary to have a beading fitted around the room perimeter, although we can provide beading to match our oak flooring if this is desired.
In addition, we can also over-plate the skirtings to hide the expansion gaps. For more information regarding this, please ask our team.
