Santa Luzia and Titebond® give you tips for nail less baseboard installation

Be sure to follow these recommendations for a problem free installation:

  • Be sure walls are free of any substances that can deter adhesion such as dust, dirt, oils, grease, etc.
  • Remove excess drywall compound or mortar to allow molding to sit flat against the wall
  • Apply enough adhesive to bridge any gaps between the straight molding and any wall flatness imperfections.
  • Be sure to use at least two beads of adhesive to keep moldings from rocking once installed.
  • Allow adhesive to dry before stressing the molding. Brace in place if needed.
  • Allow extra time for water-based adhesive/sealant to dry when placed against non-porous surfaces.

Installation is easy and quick:

  • Cut nozzle and puncture seal
  • Apply at least two beads of adhesive/sealant on back of molding
  • Apply molding to the wall
  • Press lightly to keep molding from bending with wall deformities
  • Brace in place if needed
  • Use sealant to fill joints and spaces between wall and molding
  • Done, no need to fix nail holes
