Basement baseplates


Can I glue down a treated baseplate in a basement? Or must it be screwed down?

Also, how long should they dry before installing?

Thanks.
Pat

Hello Pat, welcome the best DIY'r site on the web.

When you say baseplates what exactly are you referring to? the lower horizontal member of a wall?

If a wall, a few screws are advisable, and the wood should be PT
