Scotia will be needed when fitting any new laminate or wood flooring. The only exception will be if new skirting boards are being fitted after the flooring. Scotia are designed to cover the expansion gap left when the floor is fitted. Here at Floorsave we are proud to offer over 25 different colour options. Also available is the white option, the white scotia is designed to blend in with white skirtings creating the illusion that the floor is running underneath the skirting board.
