PVC Baseboard

I've decided I should use PVC baseboards. I'm guessing they get applied with silicone. Is this the way to go?

Use fasteners
Mill and cut just like lumber

I used PVC in my bathroom right near my shower where there is some moisture.  I milled/routed, sanded and painted it like regular wood and used the same nails I used with the rest of the regular wood baseboard.

Any issues with shrinking/movement?

None at all.  And this is in a bathroom that cycles between humid and dry.

Did the same around a shower. Worked beautifully and took paint (I did a light sanding). I used stainless finish screws to attach.

What did you use to plug up the screw heads?

PVC only expands due to temperature and not humidity, sothat shoudn't be a concern unless you have drastic swings (unlikely) in your house. 

As for plugging, acrylic or polyurethane caulk, or Cortex plugs work well.

I made plugs with a plug cutter from a scrap.
