Stikatak Oak Effect Floor Edge Trims 2000m Pack of 10
Great finish, but needs help
I read about this product and looked at the reviews to see if it was as good as it looked. A few people mentioned the applied adhesive tape wasn't strong enough and I agree. My skirting boards are less than straight, so the tape didn't work at all. I simply removed the adhesive with an inverted chisel, applied grab adhesive and stuck it to the wall ... sorted.
Matches in with my oak flooring really well and finishes the room much better than Sofia or quadrant in my opinion. Easy to cut and mitre properly.
Would give this a higher star rating if the tape was nice and sticky. Can't rate reliability higher as its only been down just over a week.
First time I have used it but won't be the last.

Far better than the compressed 'cardboard' quadrant that I have used in the past. Would suggest the manufacturer supply this edging without the lip also, as DIY ers don't always get a gap for it to fit. Clear silicone sealant or double sided sticky tape can always fix it in position.

What a shame
Looks great and a much better idea than the other options.
BUT please take note the adhesive strips are pointless and after a few attempts and much wasted time, I woke to find most if not all had come off.
If they sorted this issue or at least took it away so you knew it had to be glued.
A real shame.

This would be an excellent product if it worked. It is neater, less obtrusive and looks better at joints than the standard type of trims, BUT, the adhesive strip is too narrow to be effective and many attempts are needed to get it to stick. The areas where it is fixed should be keyed otherwise it will not stick. Some strips have loosened and I will probably use contact adhesive to fix the rest. Get the adhesion right and it will be a great product
