Find a tradesman for skirting board installation
Fitting and replacing skirting boards is important for maintaining a room’s aesthetics. Your skirting boards are what cover up the joints between your walls and flooring. They are also commonly treated as a purely decorative feature, though any damage or poor installation work with skirting boards is very easy to spot.
While it can be simple to install skirting boards, your best bet of a top notch finish will be to hire an experienced local carpenter. Again, a poorly installed skirting board is easy to spot, and flaws can be difficult to fix without reattaching the board entirely.

What do I need to know about skirting board installation?
The cost of hiring a Pro to install your skirting boards will depend on the specifics of your room. A room’s size will influence the amount of time it takes to complete the job. Other factors that will affect this will include the number of corners, alcoves, bay windows and so on. Your Pro will want to take careful measurements of the room to make sure that the skirting they are installing will properly fit, with no gaps or imperfections.
Your Pro may use either glue or nails to install your skirting boards. While both options have their perks, the choice will likely depend on how flat your wall is. If your wall is bumpy, a skirting board stuck down with glue will be less secure than one that is nailed down. Alternatively, they may use a combination of the two.
You can expect the cost of supplying and fitting to be between £150 and £300, again depending on the size and shape of your room. Be advised that average costs can vary depending on your location in the UK, with tradesmen in London and the south charging more on average.
