Not everything that glitters is as valuable as its appearance. Typically, manufacturers, trying to reduce the cost of the product and thereby occupy visually advantageous positions among competitors, choose a cheap finish film for facing. Yes, of course, it sparkles and looks like a plinth impeccably. But this is only an impression and it will last until the baseboard is installed and its daily operation begins. Let's carry a theory. What is a finish film? And this is absolutely ordinary paper, which is processed using a thermoactive resin using a special technology. That's all. Now let's get to practice. What happens when a room with such a baseboard is wet cleaned? When will just drops or most likely a wet mop go through such a baseboard? Such a skirting, in simple terms, quickly ages and rapidly loses its appearance. From that impression and the joy of the money saved there will be no trace. Agree, if the goal is to save at the moment, it is better to choose a budget plastic baseboard. It is inexpensive, and its appearance is quite watchable, and as soon as the best times come, it can easily be replaced with a more expensive and high-quality skirting board made of duropolymer or MDF skirting.
