Skirting boards cop a beating in most family homes, but they’re also one of the first elements of your home that guests see. It’s easy to maintain a hard, glossy finish to them:

Step 1: Prepare them by filling cracks, dents and chips with the putty of your choice. A quick-setting and very durable filler for the job is Selleys Plastibond. Fill gaps with No More Gaps, and let it cure. Then sand and wash with Sugar Soap and let it dry.

Step 2: Undercoat the skirtings with a primer that matches your topcoat. This means that you have to select your finish coat first, and then check the can for the right primer. We chose Dulux Aquanamel for this job because it’s a high-gloss water-based paint that’s easy to apply and wash out. It’s also fast drying so you can get the job done in a day.

Step 3: Apply each coat and allow to dry. Lightly sand between coats with fine sandpaper (say 240 grit), or with steel wool (or a nylon scourer pad) on moulded skirting. You’ll get a better finish from two thin coats than you will from one or two heavy coats.

tip Lochie’s Tip:
Use a high-quality brush for the best finish, and less stray bristles in the paint.

Dulux Aquanamel Gloss is available at all good hardware stores.
