Home > Product Installation Guides > How to install skirting boards to brickwall
Skirting boards are a great addition to every house. They hide the gaps between the floor and the wall, prevent wall marks from furniture and add special design detail to enhance any room.
If you have plasterboard walls, installing skirting boards is a simple DIY process, however, with brickwork, it takes a little bit more work.
Just make sure you allow extra for the mitred joints. To do this you need to cut on a 45° angle to create the mitres where needed.
In order to scribe the second piece, cut a 45° angle into the skirting and use the coping saw to cut along the line where the face of the skirting meets the angled cut, then butt the second piece into the first skirting board to fit into place.
Which will allow you to nail or screw fix the skirting boards into the brick. To do this, place the skirting board into position and drive a nail or screw through the face of the skirting board until it hits and marks the brick wall.
Then where the nail or screw left marks on the brickwork, use a drill with a 5mm masonry drill bit to make a hole in the wall.
Making it flush with the brick wall.
Stick it to the wall firmly, hold it in place and hammer the nails or drive the screws through the skirting board and into the wall plugs until fixed securely.
If you used nails to fix, use the nail punch to counter sink the nail head so they sit below the surface of the skirting
Let it dry and sand over them until they are smooth. Also, fill the gaps between the skirting and the wall as well as the corners with gap filler.
Once all is filled you can use your selected paint to paint your skirting and you’re done!
Adding skirting to a brickwork wall will add dimension and style to your interior helping you create the spectacular interior of your dreams.
We recommend using pine material skirting boards given the importance of the nailing or screw fixing to the brick wall, as MDF does not have the same fixing properties which can cause nails or screws to become loose or pull through over time.
Intrim offer Intrim Intense Power Adhesive which is strong enough to use as a direct glue to the wall adhesive. You can stick your skirting boards directly to the wall without the need for any fixings such as nails, dowel or screws! We recommend you trial one piece first prior to using for the overall job, and ensure the surface you are gluing the mouldings to is clean and free of flaking paint and other matter that may affect the bond quality.
