Re: Skirting Base

After 9 years of the "cheap" skirting that cracked, warped, tore, and blew out regularly, last month after we moved I installed Rapid Wall skirting (google it). The old skirting was also nailed into the ground with foot-long landscaping spikes and just never held up well. I set the Rapid W...
