was hoping somebody could help me explain what is happening with the skirting in one of my bedrooms. I had skirting fitted about 6 month ago after the walls were re- skimmed. Recently it appears that the skirting is coming off from the walls and i cant seem to push the skirting back. the skirting was screwed into the walls.
It almost seems as though the walls have expanded pushing the skirting out.
any help as to why this is happened and what I can do about it would be most welcome.
the chances are that the screws weren't screwed into studs in the wall or are screwed into a joint in the block work.When the timber is moving (growing and shrinking) it maybe working its way off the wall
