I've bought a flat that was built by Barratt in 96/97. Prob is some of
the skirting boards are water damaged and need replacing. And there's a
gap where I removed the fireplace.
Does anyone know where I can get some please? I've tried B&Q and checked
a few online places.
Cheers for any help.
An idea of the profile would be a good start for us! That is like saying "I
had a kitchen installed by Barrets in 1997 where can I get additional
units?" Is the skirting Taurus, Champhered, Ogee, Lambs Tongue....? If you
are unsure of the terminology have a look here for different profiles,
http://www.timberworld.co.uk/doclib/Mouldings_Bro.pdf . (page 5). Can you
not remove all the skirting boards in the affected room(s) and replace with
similar all round?
Ah, apologies. Just everything in the flat is identical to the fittings
I've seen in a few other Barratt flats build around the time.
20 mm thick
95 mm high
30 mm from top to base of the curved bit.
Have thought about removing all the skirting board in the affected rooms
but this is my first DIY and I'm learning on the job so I'm trying to
minimise my work. The nature of the rooms affected (living room - large,
hallway - tricky as there's lots of corners and 7 doors inc cupboards
coming off it) means replacing everything will be a big job.
I was going to add to what breeze said, as the best way is to get a profile
gauge from somewhere like B&Q (the more expensive one the better it will
keep its shape) and then take that to a local joiners, as they can make the
same profile for you and then make the same skirting.
It is basically the same as what breeze said, but I always found a proper
profile gague will give you a better way of getting the exact same shape.
