hi we are adding a wall and double doors to our formal lounge room, a local builder is doing this for us and we originally built with jgking last year. our builder says we need to find out where we can source matching skirting boards and architraves as our local hardware store wont have them from the same moulds. does anywhere know where we may be able to buy these (we are going to contact jg king tomorrow).

Skirts and arch's aren't made in a mould, they are machined.
I would think that most project builders would just be using off the shelf profiles from Hume, Corinthian or similar.
It's not hard to take some measurements and check the profiles on line or at the local hardware supplier.

If you have a photo handy of the existing skirting boards would help. Is it very unique?
There are a lot of varieties out there available off the shelf. You'd possibly be able to get most kinds of designs, except the really old fancy ones.
