White Gorilla Tape on Ensolite seams

Hello all, wondering if anyone has experience with replacing the T moulding with White Gorilla Tape. Watched a video about caulking the joints but for myself I am wondering if it might be easier to apply Gorilla Tape over the joint instead. Anyone have experience with the durability of the tape.

Thanks
Tom

While Gorilla Tape has good uses, in my opinion this is not one of them. When it wears out in a few years, what then.

Buying the T-moulding and installing is cheap and easy. Looks good too.

I went the caulking route and it was pretty easy and has stood up for 5 years so far. I did put a coat of Kilz on the "Skin" after applying the caulk to the seams.

We replace some of the T molding for our repair as it works easy and the fan wires on our cap vents run under the molding back to the power. Do not know how the tape would work.
Both of the vents on our boler are powered.

Gorilla Tape / Caulking update

Thanks to all who replied to my Query. I decided to try the Caulking option for replacing the T moulding in my Trillium. I have done a few of the seams and so far I am very happy with the results. Thanks for all the input.
