The existing floor has wood panels (not sure what type) over the concrete base of the house. I guess they were original with the house (30 years) and they run under the skirting boards.

However they are now a bit worn and I think the dips and uneven joins will show up under vinyl sheet flooring (already been ordered).

If I was to fit new plywood over the top of this, do I need to leave an expansion gap between them and the skirting board? If so, won't the edges of the vinyl then bend down into it?

Thanks

Might be an idea to remove the skirting boards and then ply over and lay vinyl before replacing skirting. This will give you space for an expansion gap which will then be hidden by the skirting.
