    Hi

    I have bought some primed mdf square skirting board from wickes.

    there is no indication on which sides are primed or not, there is one smooth white side and the other 3 sides feel less smooth. Are the 3 sides the primed side or is it the smooth white side? The narrower top and bottom and one of the sides feel the same.

    this is my first time using this and it being square doesn’t help me identify the outward facing side.

    thanks

    They usually stick the price label on the face side just to annoy you

    It"s probably 4 side primed - the best looking face goes outside. Use lighter petroleum on a bit of clean cotton rag to get rid of the stickiness left by the labels if necessary

    The sides are all the same, white=primed.
