This is due to it being easy to install compared to other options. High quality MDF Skirting Boards have increased durability, are moisture-resistant, and have a smooth surface which enables it to have a clean finish when painting.
MDF Skirting Boards and architrave are primed, sanded and reprimed so that they are finished with a semi-finished surface.
