How To Fit Laminate Flooring Under Skirting Boards

Fitting laminate flooring under skirting boards can be a bit tricky, but with the right tools and techniques, it is a task that can be accomplished by most DIYers. Skirting boards are wooden or decorative coverings that are placed along the base of a wall to hide the gap between the wall and the floor. The following are steps to fit laminate flooring under skirting boards.

The first step is to remove the existing skirting boards. This can be done using a pry bar or a hammer and chisel. Care should be taken to avoid damaging the walls or the skirting boards themselves. Once the skirting boards are removed, the next step is to measure the width of the gap between the wall and the floor.

The next step is to cut the laminate flooring to size. The laminate planks should be cut to a size that is slightly smaller than the width of the gap so that they can be easily inserted into the space. The planks should also be cut to the correct length, taking into account the slope of the floor.

The next step is to install the laminate flooring under the skirting boards. This can be done by carefully sliding the planks into the gap, making sure that they are properly aligned with the wall. The planks should be tapped into place using a tapping block and a hammer to ensure that they are securely in place.

Finally, the skirting boards should be reinstalled. This can be done using a nail gun or a hammer and nails. It’s important to make sure that the skirting boards are securely in place and that there are no gaps between the skirting boards and the laminate flooring.
