Baseboard warping


I recently redid my basement and put down my baseboard's. It is now summer and it is humid, I have noticed the baseboards are warping out in spots. I can push them back but I notice it is between the studs. My question is should I take them off, trim off a little at the ends or just use some adhesive in the spots where they have come off. Thanks

Baseboard warping


You SHOULD be able to just push it back against the wall and add a longer finishing nail at the bottom, tilting downward to catch the flat board that should be behind it. A dab of paint and no-one will ever notice it. Add some glue first if you wish. The nail will act as a clamp.
