LVT Plank Along Curved Bathtub


LVT was already run on slab. The 5' plank along the tub is scribed due to the strong outer tub bow -- what company makes flexible mould, that might allow for expansion of the floating floor? That might fit along the horizontal radius? (Stainmaster, the maker, doesn't offer this)

Caulk was applied direct between the cut edge and the tub although now the product seems to be separating at the first 'lock' seam, more so the further it gets away from the center/outer bow.

You could use a tub molding. It's basically a piece of cove base that is about an inch and a half tall and has a peel and stick adhesive. The one that I use comes in a 61 inch length. Sorry but I don't know the manufacturer. Check with a flooring supply place or a good flooring store.

Is tub molding its specific name? We just use flexible quarter rounds usually. They can be expensive from the big box stores, I get them at most $15 per 8 foot length in a local flooring store.

Tub molding is what they call it where I buy it.
How do you attach flexible quarter round on a concrete slab? I understand that it would have to be done with some sort of adhesive but how do you get it tight and to stay in place until the adhesive sets up?

Apply strong adhesive glue to vinyl quarter round (waterproof). Pess into place with extra tiles, heavy tools, etc. Wait overnight. We do if all the time. Lots of houses on concrete slabs around here.
