how do you install pllastic quarterround? Nail or glue?

how do you install plastic quarterround to floors.  we will be putting in laminate floors and want to use white quarterround to finish floor off.  Do you nail plastic or will it split?  My daughters boyfrien will be putting in the floors and mouldings.  He has never installed either before.  Any good hints for both floors and moldings?   Sure could use input.  Thanks  ----  DJ

Hello twinkles and thank you for your question. 


I checked out the installation instructions for the 3/4 in. x 3/4 in. x 144 in. Composite Plastic Quarter Round Moulding and the manufacturer recommends nailing the molding to the floor at an angle using #6 or #8 bright-finish nails and set each nail with a small nail set.   Then fill each nail hole with wood putty.  A nail gun is recommended for fastest installation.


The manufacturer’s video also shows the use of Liquid Nails Poly or PL Premium to glue moulding to the wall.  You will need to use a heavy object to hold the moulding in place while the glue cures. 


Best wishes on your project.
