4 1/2 inch baseboards


Hey all. Im putting in 4 1/2 baseboards in a finished space. The problem is, behind the drywall is alluminum framing. Plus the wall is not straight in some spots. I tried liquid nail AND finish nails but its not too sturdy. Any suggestions? Thanks

Finish (trim head) screws.

When I frame with metal studs, I install a plywood base at the bottom of the wall to ease the baseboard installation. It will be 1/2" shorter then the planned base molding.

Exactly what I was going to suggest. It will be a bit of work to cut out the drywall, but it is the only way to go in my opinion.
