I want to use adhesive to put a couple of skirting boards, mainly because I have no idea where the electric cables are running and I don't want to take a chance.
I have been advised to use "Alcolin Skirting Board Adhesive", http://www.alcolin.com/diy-products/wall-and-floor/skirting-board-adhesive
I have ~2.7m long boards and the wall are fairly straight and painted.
My Question is, how good are those adhesive? Will I be able to nail things in them for example, (like cables or whatever). Will it work for a month and then start to fall apart slowly?
I know that screws are ultimately better, but are adhesives not as good an option?
I ended up using the adhesive and it worked great, even on the long boards.
- My walls are concrete, and clean
- My walls are straight as an arrow, (no weird holes or angles).
- It took 24hrs for the adhesive to cure properly, (not 1hr as claimed by the manufacturer).
