Any benefit shooting pinners in Miters

Posted by chefwong (My Page) on

Wonky not so flat basement flooring.
Some outside miters were fairly tights,
Others no so.

I plan to caulk the minor gaps (with excess) and gut the excess to create a sharp line on the small gaps. Any benefits on shooting a couple of pinners in it. I've done pinners/glu on crown but the crown has always been tight to each other

Outside miters in flooring makes no sense. I take it, then, that maybe you mean baseboard?
18 ga. brads are more likely to have an effect than 21 or 23 ga. pins.

So the outside miters don't meet up because the floor is not level? I would recut the miters (maybe on a slight angle, too) to get them to meet more tightly. Little bit of trial and error. Glue and nail, then caulk the wall gaps.
