About us

skirting world birmingham

The Home Of Skirting Boards And Architrave
We are a company based in Birmingham in the UK and we deliver skirting boards and architrave all over the country. We provide you with the cheapest quotations without compromising on quality - here at Skirting World we take pride in our work. With a huge range of profile designs and a wide selection of sizes, we have everything to suit your needs - from a piece of fancy skirting board to a bulk order of MDF skirting boards.
Why Choose MDF Skirting Boards?
MDF has quickly become the standard material to use for skirting boards throughout the UK. A skirting board made from MDF is free of impurities and will last much longer than your average softwood skirting boards. Should you need a skirting board that is moisture resistant, we offer the superior HDF material in 4200mm lengths (5400mm selected range) at competitive prices. All of our skirting boards have a matching architrave so you can have a consistent look throughout your home. If you have any questions regarding our products on offer, do not hesitate to get in touch with our friendly team here at Skirting World.
We use only the best quality materials including MDF, HDF and Pine and we custom make all of our products to order. If you're looking for skirting boards and architraves at the best prices on the web, look no further than
Skirting World Take Pride In Their Work...
Not only do we make sure that all of our materials are sourced responsibly and are of the highest quality possible, our manufacturing process is just as important. Our specialist team take the MDF through it's transformation from a sheet to skirting boards (or architraves) from start to finish. The sheets are inspected for impurities and then cut down to the intended size (height of the skirting boards, width of architraves, etc.). Once this has been completed, one of our machinists run the board through our moulding machine or spindle to cut away the chosen design. Another visual inspection is made before the boards are passed to the spray room where our in house french polisher applies to layers of primer to the skirting (if ordered as primed). The boards are hand sanded between coats and once fully dry, a denibbing machine is used to make the finished product smooth and ready for a final layer of paint.
Before wrapping ready for transport, another visual inspection takes place. Once our team are happy with the finished products, the wrapping team use cardboard edge protection and shrink wrap to ensure they are secure and ready to be loaded to the van for delivery. And voila! You will receive your order and can install it straight away. Don't forget - match your skirting boards with your architraves by choosing the same design (it'll look great!).
When it comes to skirting board designs, we have a lot to offer. We also provide a bespoke service if you need something extra special.

Moisture Resistant HDF

High Density MDF

Moisture Resistant HDF - Perfect For Skirting & Architrave

HDF is stronger and harder than MDF. Compared to natural wood, High Density MDF doesn't swell at all making surface decoration much easier. HDF skirting is perfect in areas where moisture is present (bathrooms etc.) and where flooring that requires frequent mopping is installed.

Most MDF on the market contains part softwood fibres, hardwood fibres and various other wood chippings. This is not the case with our premium boards - they are 100% softwood fibres that enables us to create a fantastic finish on a much more durable board.

Why is your MDF called HDF?

The material we now use in place of our MDF is officially known as High Density MDF - hence the reason we refer to it as HDF. 

All of our MDF is now High Density MDF!

That's right - every single MDF product we sell is now made from High Density MDF! We have sourced the highest density MDF on the market.

Why is density so important?

When it comes to skirtings and architraves, the density of the material is important because:

  • the more fibres that are packed into the board, the better the finished product (less furriness as seen with standard MDF).
  • the denser the board, the more durable it is. Skirting and architraves tend to be bumped and knocked quite regularly - that's why we have the most dense boards available on the market.

Before 2018, only our 4200mm lengths were made using HDF. However, due to the superior finish achieved using HDF we have sourced the material for all of our current sizes!

You can buy skirtings and architraves in 15mm, 18mm or 25mm in and of our advertised lengths and you will receive moisture resistant HDF boards - you won't get these anywhere else!

Just below, you'll find a list of all the products that are made using our HDF material:
