Hi, Some good tips there. I would like to argue the joining the two ends at the of the instructions though.
PVC will shrink over time. This will leave your joins with a 5 mm gap sooner than you think!
You only have to look at an older reimo T25 interior or similar to see what I mean.
You should make your cut 5mm longer than you think it should be and then offer the two ends together. You think it will not fit, as you will have a raised bump in the edging. Just tap it with your mallet and it will sit flat and the two ends will be very tight together. They will resist the shrinking process much longer because you have aloud for it.
