How would i box in central heating pipes fitted to the front of skirting boards
Hi, I have had central heating installed and the copper pipes have been fitted down the wall and then to the front of the skirting boards, in some rooms this is along as much as 2 full walls. Please can someone advise on the best way of boxing them in. I should add it was a complicated job and this was the only way to route the pipes.

there are a few ways.. most installers normally use pvc double pipe covers that a plumber could probably install for you so long as the pipes run close to each other. you could also use plywood to box them in or simply paint them. the only issue with painting is its harder to maintain the pipework for the plumber.. but not a big issue.

Depending on the size of skirting boards, you can fix one timber under and one over the pipes and then cut and fix an MDF to cover them.

Bloody plumbers! What a bodger! There must have been a better route but sounds like he couldn't be bothered
