If you are installing a white pine or white oak floor in your property, Floormaker's attractive white edging is just the thing to cover up your new floor's expansion gap.
This gap is necessary - it allows for the expansion and contraction that naturally occurs in any wood or laminate floor - but you don't have to leave it uncovered and unsightly. In fact, we strongly recommend using edging (or 'scotia') to prevent dust and dirt from building up in the exposed gap.
To install your edging, cut the 2.4 metre lengths to fit the sides of your room. Then, nail each piece to the skirting board (NOT the floorboards themselves - these must be free to move). Use diagonal cuts to fit the separate pieces of scotia together and create a neat, professional finish.
