It's not the area that matters, it's the length around the perimeter.
Hi Noah, thank you for your inquiry. You do not need to prime this moulding since we prime it ourselves. All you need to do is painted and install it!
Divide 8 into 180 will give you 23 pieces. Which is 184 feet. Doorways and openings will reduce the footage, but always figure on a little extra for waste and bad cuts.
Simply answer to your question Scorpio is - Yes. Quarter round is equal length on both unexposed sides and comes in various dimensions, ex: 1/4" x 1/4", 1/2" x 1/2", etc. Whereas, Shoe Base (Base Shoe in Contractor lingo) most commonly is 1/2" Wide by 3/4" high and is used to cover the space (gap) between the Base Board and finished floor coverings. Most applications are over thin flooring material such as tile or as in your case, vinyl. Base Shoe is somewhat flexible and provides a means whereby the a tight, professional look that requires little or no caulking can be achieved. The 'gap' below your Dining Room Base Board is common and allowed a space for the carpet installer to 'stuff' the cut edge of the carpeting. That gap is generally 3/8" high. If larger, and not exceeding 5/8", 1/2" x 3/4" Base shoe can comfortably be used to conceal the void under the Base Board. In some instances a thin filler strip of wood the same thickness as the Base Board must be placed in the "gap" before installing the shoe. Otherwise, the base shoe will have a tendency to collapse in at the bottom and will not fit tightly against the base board at the top. A little Contractor secret - if the shoe you bought is prime paint coated (Alexandria brand from Home Deport is) you'll still need to put on a finish coat of paint to match the base board. Cutting in the bottom edge where it comes in contact with the vinyl flooring material can be tedious. Even if masking tape is used. If you 'finish coat' the shoe before it is installed, you'll find that touching up the small hole left by the nail gun much easier than doing filling and painting after the material is installed,
Yes, painting is not mandatory, but it is recommended.
we need probably 250 feet shoe base mounding Can we use liquid nail to to install shoeor we have to use staple gun to instal
No, product is manufactured to be used in unprotected areas.
The larger the molding, the nicer it looks. Elegant 100-year old houses never skimped.
