Great tip! Also, for those of you with the weedeater damage or if you want to continue using a weedeater next to your skirting, this is a pretty cool product. Skirt Guards
The whole idea is that when the weedeater line slaps the ridges of the skirting, it is the impact of the slap that creates the hole. If you look, you will see very little damage to the bottom track which is smooth and without ridges. If you have the little chips, this product effectively covers them, saving the cost of replacement. Last I checked, the Skirt Guards are only available in white.
