Best nails for molding installation?
Asked Jun 11, 2008, 02:05 PM
Hello. I have a lot of molding to install throughout my home. Baseboards, door trim, crown molding, and quarter round. I have an air compressor and am going to get a nailer to put up all the molding. I'd like to get just one nail gun. Will a 16 gauge finisher do the job for all the moldings? The baseboard is pretty thick and I have to use the larger 11/16 quarter round due to gaps on the floor.
My concern is the finishing nailer might split the quarter round. But it is on the thicker side, and I think brads would be too light for the baseboard.
Any suggestions on the nail gun to get?
