Advantages: An ingenious way of adhering
Do It Yourself is not my forte! I try but more often than not my attempts fail miserably. So like many households we end up with numerous DIY tasks all waiting to be done.
A friend of ours is having a house purpose built and his Father, a carpenter by trade, is hanging all of the doors, fitting the kitchen and when I called in to see him he was busy sawing up lengths of skirting board ready to fit.
Nosiness is nothing if not carried out well! so I stayed to watch him for a while. Fully expecting him to get the screws and nails out ready I was surprised to see him produce a tube of NoMoreNails! He explained to me that the product was used for numerous jobs on building sites now and it was just progress.
I was intrigued because I had never seen the adhesive used before, let alone for `sticking` skirting boards on!
Anyway to cut a very long story short we had a problem in our kitchen that we thought that we might be able to solve using the adhesive.
Two of the running boards under the kitchen units had started to rot and crumble away, we had been to B&Q and had bought the formica board to replace them, but we had never had the courage to remove the old boards in case we couldn't put the new boards on.
So with bated breath we decided to remove the two offending boards, which practically fell apart in our hands! then we cut the new length and applied NoMoreNails to the back of the new piece of board. We held it in place for a minute or two and then put a couple of little wooden wedges in between the tiles and the new board to secure it in place until the glue had properly dried. Well the next morning all was well, the new running boards looked clean and tidy and they had stuck solid!
So the adhesive got full marks for performance.
Unibond themselves describe it as being a high strength adhesive with a very strong grab.
Its safe and easy to apply, it adheres to most building materials, it dries with a white finish and any residue can be cleaned away easily.
They say that its perfect for for fixing skirting's, coving, architrave, plasterboard or worktops.
NoMoreNails is solvent free and is perfect for all of those indoor tasks.
It certainly saved a lot of work for us, instead of having to drill screw holes and then cover the holes over with filler etc, the job was done in half of the time and im sure that the adhesive will come in handy for some more jobs that need doing!
A 200ml tube of NoMoreNails costs in the region of £3.75 and is available from most good hardware stores and DIY Shops.
Summary: No screws or nails needed just get the tube out instead
