Regarding this, should you leave a gap under skirting board?
Carpet fits against the skirting,notunder. If laying a laminate type floor youshouldalways leave a gap between the new floor andtheskirting, it should not touch or go underskirtingboards. You can then use beading to coverthisgap if need be.
Similarly, does laminate go under skirting? You dont need new skirting if you wantyourlaminate under it unless the existing skirtingisdamaged. The people should have just taken yourskirtingoff, laid the laminate, then replaced yourskirtings on top.Its not a big job and its not difficult todo.
