I have install the laminate floor and now need to put down the quarter round. Question #1: Do I nail to the wall or angle down to the floor away from the laminate so the floor can still float? Question #2: I have outside corners greater than 90 degrees and am having difficulty making those cuts. Any help would be appreciated.
I like to use long nails and drive them on enough of an angle that they miss the laminate, alowing it to still float,but also put a little downward pressure on the floor to help hold the quarter round tight to the floor.Do not nail through the floor, because if there is a problem and you call for a warranty claim, the rep will immediately jump on the fact that the floor could not float any longer, so sorry we can't help you, good bye.Most miter saws will cut a few degrees more than 45, but if that is not enough make a little wood jig to clamp to your fence . Make it a convenient angle to work with, like 10 degrees. Use it for the fence to hold your quarter round. If you determine that you need a 55 degree cut, set your saw to 45 ( 55 minus the 10 built into the jig)
