First time post. This question has been touched on before, but would appreciate more detailed answer. I'm a DIYer, about to lay 14mm eng. board & 7mm u/lay board & d/p membrane over concrete.
A lot of pros recommend removing skirting board, & cutting slice from base of door frames. I would like to avoid this if possible, and simply use coloured bead to cover expansion joints.
Assuming that I can live with the reduced visible skirting height ( 7mm down to 5mm, and rather duff appearance of bead, is there any TECHNICAL reason against this method?
