Unbelievable, seriously why would the tradie fix the skirting like this in the first place, is he blind or something or just lazy to remove, cut and replace. It's little things like this that really annoys me.

The mouldings at the bottom of my windows are different to yours. I kept it all the same profile around to match the architraves that are on top of the 1st floor. Your ones, that are at the bottom of the windows are of the same profile as the ones on top of the lounge, garage and portico. I also donโ€™t have the moulding on top of the lounge or garage. That's why it would have cost that much because you would have to cover around the garage and around the lounge as well. The material is made of mix of foam and cement. Also note that the moulding around the top windows are not the same, they are made of some sort of cement material similar to a blue board/cement sheet but they are thicker than a cement sheet though.

Yep it does look odd. Should start with a full length tile and end with a full length tile. Looks like a 3 full length tile would have been better.
