Hello. I have two questions pertaining to moulding on my floating wood
floor. I have tile on the floor around the fireplace. I have the moulding
cut and fit into place. There is a gap from the floor to the tile so the
floor can move if it needs too. Im using T moulding. I want to attach it
with some type of glue. I will put the glue on the tile part only, that way
the floor can still expand under the moulding. I bought some liquid nails
but I want to be sure it will work with tile. Will it work with tile is my
firs question. My second question is that I have to place moulding where
the sliding door is. Again I left room to expand. Im using a flat
moulding. I know I will need to use sealant up against the metal frame of
the 8 ft door but I have no idea on how to attach this so the floor can
still move if it needs too. I can use tiny nails or i can use glue but they
would have to be place on the moulding onto the floor thus I don't think it
would be able to expand. This is an 8ft piece. Any suggestions would be
As mentioned caulk along the door frame. I have used "a couple of
brads" over an 8ft span of a door frame. Placed through the trim and
into the floating floor. Sounds like you have plenty of room for
movement, so a few brads won't hurt, imo.
Place a temporary weight (box of wood?) over the tim span to help with
adhesion of the trim and allow to cure/set-up.
"If things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me."
Thanks to both of you for replies. Where the moulding is around the
fireplace tile I really need to use a brad or two where it is a little high
and wont glue down because, it just wont. A brad or two will be ok? There
is about 1 inch room there. Thanks.
