Flooring Question

Do i need flooring scotia for a new laminate floor?

6 Answers

Best Answer

It always looks nice to have scotia around the edges of a laminate floor, so i would suggest in doing this.

Also, it hides the cutting that goes up to the edges of the skirting boards. If you have skirting boards being placed over the scotia, you do not need to lay scotia.

Hope this helps, Adam

if you aren't taking the skirting board up then yes you will need to use beading to hide the expansion gap, but you can use quadrant as an alternative to scotia.

Hello , yes you do unless you take your skirting boards off and replace once the laminate has been fitted. Thanks.

I have laid a few floors over the years and all of my own in my property and even if the skirting is removed i think it looks a much better finish with quadrant/beading fitted.
