How to install Up close picture of metal skirting Corner using the J-Channel

Corners are made by bending skirting around or into the corner. After this step is completed, then trim and apply J-channel along the top, bottom and end edges of your application. 


Primer and paint can be applied to your skirting immediately, or you may allow the skirting to “weather” for several months and then apply paint without primer. Check your local home improvement store to find the paint suitable for your location. 


Shed-resistant paint rollers will cover your skirting quickly.
