In this job I’m fitting Victorian skirting in a property. These are tall 250mm (~10″) baseboards. These sort of jobs can be particularly tricky since the walls are so far from level, flat or true. This room had been completely re-plastered and left ready(ish) for the skirting installation.
Today I’m in another Victorian property where a new damp proof course has been installed. In such situations the skirting / baseboard needs re-fitted afterwards, often to walls that are now a different shape.
