adhering molding


I'm finishing up my laminate flooring install and I chose my moldings to cover the 1/4 inch gap. I have existing molding that is still installed. I was planning on nailing my shoe molding to the existing molding. But was wondering if it would be ok to use a strong double sided tape to adhere my shoe molding in place?

This way it would be easier to replace if it was damaged or if I decided to change the look...

Oh, by the way. I'm using the very light weight pvc type material for my moldig if it makes a difference. My idea is the lighter weight and smoother material would stick better to the double sided tape.

The only tape that might hold it would be Boa tape.

Attaching the moulding to what moulding?
Do you mean attaching it to the base board?
Not the best plan to use that cheap plastic or foam stuff or to attach it with just tape.
Use real wood and finish nails.
The plastic stuff melts when you try to cut it, next to impossable to sand a nice edge, paint or stain does not like to stick to it. It will expand and contract causing the tape to release.
No pro would would ever use that stuff.
Not sure why you would ever want to remove it but, nailed trim can be just poped off with a flat bar. Trying to get it off will double face tape would be a night mare and would leave glue behind.
Plus near impossible to apply it and not have some places come out above the 1/4 round.

I don't think it's a good idea either, but they asked what tape would hold it and I think Boa would. And It is sold to pros to install cove base. It will hold as well as adhesive on base.

QUESTION: Will the tape cause a gap?
ANSWER: Yes.
