You can request for skirting board fitting and repair right here on Airtasker. Our experts take care of buying the skirting boards and bringing the necessary tools for the job. You can also opt to get these yourself and just book this service to take care of the actual labour.
The exact details of what a skirting board expert can or can’t do may vary. That’s why it’s best to make your task post as detailed as possible. This helps potential Taskers evaluate your request better and come up with a suitable offer.
In general, here’s what you can expect when you book a skirting board service via Airtasker:
Just like with any other construction job, you’ll need materials and tools. Your tradesman takes care of buying the skirting boards, depending on what you specified in the task post in terms of length and height. In case you don’t have anything in mind yet, they may stop by your location first, do a bit of measuring, then go to your local hardware.
They also arrive with the necessary tools in tow. These include a coping saw, ear muffs, safety glasses, a nail gun, a tape measure, and a hammer. If you already have some of these materials at home, you could ask your tradesman to bring only the ones that aren’t in your toolbox. It all depends on your preference and what your skirting board service requires.
Your tradesman begins by measuring each part of the wall and marking the skirting boards. They’ll cut the boards at 45-degree angles, then cut the scribed joint. The scribed joint makes sure that the boards line up nicely at the corners of the room.
Then, they cut the skirting board at 90-degree angles on both ends and start attaching it to the wall. They’ll take the board with the scribed joint, cut it to size, then push it against this first skirting board. Once they’re happy with the fit, your tradesman attaches it to the first board.
After that, it’s pretty much the same process all around the room - or every room in your house.
Skirting boards protect your wall from wear and tear, so you’ll inevitably have to redo them after years of living in your home. This process is pretty much the same as installation, except that your tradesman has to remove the current skirting boards first. This involves removing any cables or obstructions, breaking the plaster, removing the skirting boards, and getting rid of nails and screws. It’s a rather tedious process, so it’ll take longer and possibly cost more compared to starting in a bare room.
Working with skirting boards can get pretty messy, so it’s advisable to get after-builders cleaning to tidy up your house afterwards. Don’t tire yourself picking up after your handymen or construction workers - get cleaning experts to do it instead!

I have cut and painted new skirting boards to fit, on three walls of a small bedroom. They need to be attached to the plasterboard and any gaps filled. Should be a quick job for someone that knows what they’re doing. The new skirtings will sit flush on top of new vinyl plank flooring that was installed professionally. The previous skirting boards were too high once the old carpet was removed. Unfortunately the old skirting boards were damaged when being removed - hence the need for new skirtings. Would like the job done within the next fortnight. Thanks

Hey, I would like you to measure up and quote this Friday afternoon for a full set of new skirtings. You will need to be able to order and collect them from Bunnings for installation the following Friday. I have 3 doors to purchase and hang too. I am unsure how long it would take but ahve just filled out form. Hoping to pay about $35 per hour and of course will pay for pick up etc

Hi Jacob, Just seeing if your interested in installing skirting boards around 3 door frames and a window in our garage possibly friday 14th or Saturday 15th? We plan on getting tiles around the garage as skirting so are just needing the timber put around the door frames and window. As we recently had a flood from recent rain in our garage so have had to take off about 1.2m of plasterboard around the garage and skirting boards. Now just need to get all new stuff back on. Thanks
