Solid oak skirting boards are by the far the most popular boards that we sell. We use only the best prime grade oak and our wood is kiln-dried to achieve a low average moisture content of 8 – 10%. This helps to ensure that the skirting is retains its shape and is both easy to fit and maintain.
You can now buy our oak skirting boards online. We keep the Bullnose, Chamfered, Ogee and Torus profiles in stock and ready to ship. Our Torus/Bullnose reversible dual profile oak skirting offers a flexible solution and can be used for hiding unsightly cables.
All of our solid oak skirting boards are supplied with a smooth machined finish – just apply the finish of your choice to achieve the desired effect. We recommend using varnish or specific wood finishing oil, such as Danish oil, to allow the natural grain of the wood to show through.
To fit solid oak skirting boards, measure each length that you will need and cut the edges such that the boards will meet seamlessly at each corner of the room. Use masonry nails or screws (drilling pilot holes and fitting rawlplugs first) to fix the skirting boards to the walls. Make sure that you avoid any pipes, wiring, or wall studs. You could also use a strong wood adhesive like Titebond Wood Glue.
