On going Skirting board questions
Well the Victorians used timber wedges in the brick joints because they didn’t have SDS drills or harden steel nails (although they did have cut nails which can to an extent work in a brick joint) So if you want to screw the skirting on you can drill, plug, and screw it. But my suggestion in my previous post would be better imo.Posted 4 years ago
I mean run a bead of Gripfill (or similar) on the back of the skirting and just pin it until it goes off. A second fix nail gun would be ideal if you know someone who’s got one, otherwise lost heads into the wedges will be fine.Posted 4 years ago
So, i have got the first length of skirting off, and whilst the wall is ok the bit behind where the skirting was is a bit of a mess.
There is one section above the height of the skirting which the plaster has given way a bit.
What is the best approach to reconstruction? To fit the new skirting what would be the best approach? The wood? chocks the victorians had nailed the original board to are still there, is screwing to them a good idea???? etc????Posted 4 years ago
