Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by REAKDA worked exactly as expected
I purchased 2 -20 ft. rolls of this base and installed it in my mechanical room. I had read some of the "1-star" reviews before I installed it and have to say I was a little skeptical about trying this self stick product and even called Roppe Customer Service rep. who answered my questions and eased my concerns about going ahead with the installation. I laid the vinyl base out flat for 2 days, heated it a little with a hair dryer right before I stuck it to the wall, and the installation went great. No problem with it sticking to my freshly painted (Porter latex semi-gloss) drywall wall. This was my first experience with installing any kind of wall base and I won't hesitate using this one again.

I had no problems installing this vinyl baseboard. I left it unrolled for at least 24 hours before using and even heated it a bit with a hair dryer before installing, It went on very easily and has stayed attached to the wall. In fact, once it was pressed to the wall, it was impossible to reposition it. Not sure why the other reviewer had so many problems. Maybe it was old and the adhesive had dried out somewhat, or the surface was not properly prepared. I would not hesitate to use this product in the future,

I purchased this moulding to protect water from going under the wall in my garage when washing down the floor. I applied it to fresh drywall that was painted with Dulux Satin finsh exterior paint.. Since it comes rolled up it is best to first unroll it and put something over the ends to keep it flat. When applying to the wall make sure that it is free of dust. Wipe the wall down with a solution of mild soap and water and dry with a towel. Starting from one edge of the wall, cut the end so it is square with edge, then unpeel part of the backing and stick to edge. Carefully align the bottom edge with the floor and peel the backing aprox 2' and lightly stick it to the wall. Continue until you reach the end of the wall and then cut carefully with scissors or razor knife. Now go back and check alignment, if satisfied then firmly press moulding against wall. Use a heat gun to any area where the glue is not adhereing well. Let stand 24 hours before washing. It is best to apply to non pourous textures such as ceramic.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jasjas71 looks good, very basic moulding, easy to install
Its been over a week since I installed this moulding, very easy to do and haven't had any major separation between the wall and vinyl moulding. I layed it out in the hallway (room temp. 70 deg. F) for over 24 hours, cut to size, heated with a hair dryer slightly, unpeeled the paper and stuck right away. Works good for the price, very basic.

Shipped quickly, easy to install. Be sure to roll it out and let it become flat before securing to wall.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jngavin57 Doesnt stick well at all
The adhesive isn't that good at all. Especially if you have anything other than a smooth as glass wall to stick it to. I have a small amount of light texturing on the wall. Every other day I have to press it back down. Guess I'll have to buy some adhesive to apply to it and re-install..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by VentusA Disappointing Product
Overall, installing this was a very unpleasant experience. I purchased four rolls to finish a newly constructed workshop with painted drywall and a concrete floor. Two of the rolls had defective adhesive that came off when the release paper was removed.
After getting these replaced (and leaving them unrolled for 24 hours prior to installation), the actual installation proceeded smoothly. Unfortunately, by the next morning, most of the wall base had separated from the wall. The adhesive was still tacky, so I reattached the base and rolled over the surface with a hard roller to firmly bond the base to the wall. To no avail- by the next day, the base had separated again.
Stick with a conventional baseboard. In the long run, its faster and less expensive...
