DIY or Professional Installation? This is not really an issue as all that is required is general DIY skills. Polyurethane skirting board and architrave is easier to install than wood and much less work. No making good nail head dents, no knotting and far less painting. Simply apply to the wall with adhesive, cut corner mitres in a mitre box, make good the joints if need be with glass paper and the adhesive and paint the final coat to finish. All deliveries come with an instruction guide.

Polyurethane or Wood? Polyurethane is a plastic, but unlike most plastic skirting boards and architrave, can be finished and painted. Polyurethane can be repaired as can wood, but wood involves much more finishing and painting to install. Polyurethane is a hardened material and is knock resistant whereas wooden skirting boards are normally a soft wood and easily dented. Polyurethane is impervious to moisture a major advantage over wood and MDF. The flexible options are a unique feature for curved walls.
