Trimming the skirtings

One of the options is to use Scotia beading to finish the edges of the fitted floor. Some might argue that it looks cheap and spoils the whole look of a newly laid floor. The other option is to trim the bottom of the skirting. Flooring is then fitted underneath the skirting boards. The overall finish looks clean and neat without the additional beading.

Fine Oak Flooring Ltd.  has an expertise in trimming the skirting. Fitting oak flooring under the trimmed skirting is not easy. It does require some effort and skill but the end result is worth it.

Just a few of many oak flooring installations we completed by trimming the skirting boards and sliding the oak flooring under the boards. Fitting wood flooring under skirting boards is a much preferred choice to finish the flooring by our costumers.

We are using this trimming method is also in Kitchens to trim the already installed Kitchen units. By trimming the units we can neatly install your new floor without a need of extra trims. These scotia trims are spoiling the neat look. Floorboards are installed under the units and the plinth is then cut to size to cover the edge of the flooring.
