Our PVC Skirting board Covers spells the end of all the scraping, sanding, priming and painting of those wooden skirting boards – and no more painted carpet edges!
Supplied in 2.5metre (8 ‘) lengths you can transform a room with some basic DIY skills.
For corners and door frames we offer finishing trims to cover the open ends of the boards. For rooms longer than 2.5m we can supply straight joiners which simply are fixed over the top of the joint. This creates a tidy joint and hides any unsightly cuts.
How do I finish off around a door frame?
Easy, use one of our External corners to take the profile back into the wall. Some cutting may be required to fit around your existing skirting board. Seal the edge with caulk or silicone and you will never know there was a skirting board hidden under there.
The skirting is available in 3 styles, Ambassador Ogee, Ambassador Ogee Plus and Ambassador Square
Ambassador Ogee is an Ogee profiled Skirting board cover with a flat top for a quality clean look.
Ambassador Ogee Plus uses the same Ogee profiled Skirting board cover but is supplied with a quadrant profile that you fit on top of the skirting to give a more detailed look and can be useful for extra depth when covering thicker skirting boards.
Ambassador Square is a simple square edge and flat topped profile that gives a contemporary finish to a room. This is available in 2 wood effect finishes as well as white.

Fitting Instructions for PVC Skirting Board
To fix, the adhesive is gunned onto the back of the skirting cover profile and pushed over existing board. If the existing board is thin or has been removed you can stick a batten to the wall and/or the skirting board to act as a spacer and then stick the cover profile to the batten(s).
The skirting board cover can be mitred into corners for a neat finish (use our colour matched silicone to seal mitres) or you can use stick on Internal and External corner covers which avoid the need to mitre the main board – however you will need to notch one of the boards where they meet in an external corner (as picture below).
The Ambassador Ogee Plus quadrant is supplied with self adhesive tape and this is stuck to the top of the skirting profile. This top moulding will cover any gap between the skirting and the wall and will complete the skirting board detail. You will need to mitre the quadrant and file or cut the bottom of the quadrant where it runs over the corners and joints – our mitre shears (below) are ideal for this job. Finally fill any gap between the quadrant and the wall if necessary with our decorators caulk. You can also seal any imperfect mitres in the quadrant with a smear of our silicone.
Mitre shears can be found here
Internal, External and Straight joints are available for each style of skirting cover.
