molding around tub


I had a new tub placed, and it seems like they cut the linolium floor too much, they tried to use chaulking to hold the floor in place against the tub, but it's been three months and the edge is starting to rise.
I had the floor guy come in to look, and he said that I could try a pice of quarter round painted white to solve my problem.
The problem now is that my tub base is not entirely straight. It curves towards the tub at the ends approx. 1 3/4 at both ends curves.
I looked up on line for flexible molding, I found two sites
www.flexibletrim.com
www.trimster.com

Just wanted to get suggestions or ideas
Thanks
Barry

Some lumberyards and big boxes carry an opaque strip made just for that. It is peel and stick and looks like a small piece of cove base. IMO it looks a lot better than 1/4 round. It is usually $5-$6.
