FAQs

What are architraves for?

Architraves have been used since the days of classical architecture. They are a lintel or beam that rests on the capitals of columns. Typically, they frame a door or window in the home.

How do you fix a skirting board?

There are a few different ways to fix a skirting board, and most depend on your type of wall. Some of the most common methods include:

  • Masonry nails, screws or wall plugs – using these is ideal for masonry walls, which are made from brick or block.
  • Lost head nails – ideal for attaching skirting to a timber stud partition wall. You should first use a stud detector to locate the studs and then use lost head nails to secure the skirting.
  • Adhesive – adhesive is a common method of attaching skirting, requiring no drilling. You can stick the skirting to your wall using a gap-filling grab adhesive.

If you do not know what type of wall you have (for example, if it's plastered and painted and you don't know what's beneath), it might be best to investigate first before deciding which method is best to fix your skirting for a lasting finish. Always be conscious to locate and avoid any cables or pipework before drilling into a wall.

How do you paint a timber skirting board?

You can paint a timber skirting board similarly to how you would paint any other type of timber – it can be furnished with paint, varnish or wood stain.

It is always recommended that you lightly sand the wood before painting, ensuring that the face is smooth and non-abrasive. Next, tape up the area above the skirting board, so the paint does not get onto the rest of the wall.

Apply your first coat of paint and wait for it to dry before building the colour. This will ensure you get a great finish on your skirting boards. It is always advisable to prime coat any timber and waiting to dry before applying you top coat paint finish.
