How to Fill Skirting Board Gaps

Skirting boards often have a gap between them and the floor which can create cold draughts and lead to chilly and uncomfortable rooms and increased heating bills during the winter months.

The size of these gaps often vary and traditional gap filling techniques and products are time consuming, messy to install and will often fall out over time. DraughtEx is a proven gap filler, designed to reduce these cold draughts and improve the comfort and energy efficiency of your home.

Unsealed Gaps Between the Skirting Board and Floor

The image shows the 4mm gap that is often found between the skirting board and the floor.

The gap may look small but a 12 x 12ft room has skirting board gap area of approximately 0.623ft2 which can lead to significant heat loss and increased energy bills.

DraughtEx Skirting Board Installation Video

This video will guide you through the process of fitting Draughtex between your skirting and floorboards.

Please note:The video shows DraughtEx being fitted into the skirting board gap using the free applicator. This is not always possible due to the gap being too small, in this instance a credit card and similar blunt instrument should be used.
