Q:The installation guide shows blocks at each corner. Is this product appropriate for simple miter corners? Thanks!

Answer This Question

A:  This base molding miters extremely easy. my corners inside and out are just perfect. One inside corner is not sq. So I took little pieces to see what angle that one needed. I ordered a couple of inside and outside corner blocks and found I liked the miter corners best.

A:  Miter outside corners, cope inside corners. You put the first piece of this baseboard in to an inside corner with a square cut. Cut the piece on the other side of that corner at a 45 degree angle then cut that face with a coping saw following the edge of the miter. Easier to do than to explain. I've done a lot of corners like this and this material is far and away the easiest to cut. Far easier than solid wood moldings.

Q:How do you apply this product? Do you just caulk it as was stated in one of the reiviews or can you use adhesive? Which is the safest in a kitchen?

Answer This Question

A:  The caulking mentioned in my review is what you do to the top and bottom to fill gaps between the molding and the wall or floor. You may obtain acceptable results with adhesive alone but you will need to find a way to put pressure on while the adhesive dries. Best bet is to use nails in addition to the adhesive or just nails. I wouldn't bet a nickel on caulk holding it in place.

A:  I think a little more than caulk is needed. I have a small compressor and used a gun with 18 gage brads. Almost not visible where it went in and the final coat of paint covers the tiny hole.

A:  I used 1 1/2" finishing nails and used a nail gun to fasten. Caulk or glue could work if wallboard is flat and true.

A:  Hi Jackie, We installed these in our living room so not 100% sure about the kitchen, but we used a nail gun to adhere them to the wall and then caulk along the corners and the top of the molding (painted the entire molding once complete) which was pretty easy and looks great!

    A:  I used a nail gun and caulking.

      Q:how much baseboard would I need for a 1500 square foot house

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Jami...you need to measure the length of each of the walls you want to put baseboard on. Then I would dive by 8. To my knowledge they only come in 8 foot lengths.

      by|May 6, 2023

        A:  You will need to measure every wall, rounding up to the nearest foot. Then add the measurements all together then divide by 8, Allow about 10% or so extra for those little pieces that don't find a place. When installing, start with the longest walls.

        A:  Looks like they only offer it in 8' lengths in all MDF mouldings. I can only speculate but longer than 8' is terribly expensive to ship. Also because MDF has different physical characteristics, a longer piece standing upright in a rack will bend and then take a set with the bend making it unsalable. Good news is that this material is so easy to cut and shape that making a joint line disappear is much easier.
