    How do I remove skirting boards around pipework/radiators?


    Hi all,
    We have moved into a new property and are in the process of renovation currently – which includes removing the old skirting boards to replace with newer style skirting boards instead.
    Our main concern with removing the skirting boards is the radiator pipes that intersect with them and some micro pipes running along the boards. How can we remove the skirting boards safely without causing any damage to the piping work?
    Any suggestions would be great to hear about!

    "Carefully is the correct answer, some pipes will have a degree of play before fracturing, the safest way is to remove the radiators, especially if using 5-10 inch skirting."
