UPVC / PVC / PVCU Skirting Boards

We’re having a flurry of orders in for Plastic, A.K.A UPVC Skirting boards, or.. PCV Skirting Boards or.. PVCU Skirting Boards.. well, you get the idea… They’re basically Plastic Skirting Boards which offer a great way of low maintenance skirting which also offer the great function of covering up your old skirting boards instead of ripping them off and having to redecorate the walls and replaster everywhere…

This has been in fact the primary request for these boards, because many work-from-home builders are now using the fastest, cheapest and easiest methods of decorating and redecorating without it looking as though its been done on a shoestring!

So when you’re looking at softwood skirting boards and mdf skirting boards, give a second thought to upcv skirting as alternative! The added bonus is that they come in longer lengths too …

Torus Skirting

Torus Skirting is often confused with other profiles, since there are a few different types of Torus Skirting. You may have seent the Torus profile with a very deep rounded section, or perhaps the rather shallow rounded section – but either way, they do go by the same name, often deliminated as Torus 1, Torus 2 and so on …

One of the most common things which is quite peculiar, is that people always point out ogee skirting and ask, “Is this Torus Skirting” ? How odd? I’m not sure where this fairly common mistake has arisen from but please don’t worry if you find yourself in this crowd – some skirting board profile names have been interchanged over time, and as always its the result that counts. Just make sure that you give us a photo of the skirting profile you’re trying to match, we’ll double check for you and make sure your order is ideal!

For a final check, here is our Torus video hosted on youtube.com on our Skirting Boards channel SkirtingBoards.TV

If you want to take an even closer look at our ogee profiles, we have a close up video on our youtube channel SkirtingBoards.TV – in fact, we have videos of many skirting profiles there too, but for ogee:

Fixing Skirting Boards

We had a great chat with a customer today about fixing skirting boards. He had assumed that it was still a requirement to use nails and a good ol’ hammer … Not the case, fixing skirting boards could not be easier these days, with a simple Tube of Adhesive, accurate cutting and very little time your skirting boards can be fixed !

You can buy Skirting Adhesive from SkirtingBoards.com in our Accessories section.

Pine Skirting?

You got it.

SkirtingBoards.com have received numerous requests for pine skirting as an alternative to MDF Skirting. Why? We believe it because MDF Skirting Boards require you to have quite a straight, flat, and very well plastered wall prepared before you fit skirting boards.

Pine and softwood skirting boards may give you a little more leeway when fitting skirting. Also you have the option of planing the skirting, before fitting whereas MDF will not take so well to planing it DIY!

Pine skirting also offers you a cost effective decoration line if you’re going for the less expensive options for example a buy to let property or the ‘spare room’ !
