HD cheap baseline moulding OK to use ?


I saw HD selling $58 cents per linear feet lower wall 3.5" moulding trims... It is composite wood recycle stuff... as it is for basement, I don't want to sepend a lot of $$ for it... it is pre-primed moulding... I would like to know it is ok to use this stuff? rignt... I won't get bad side effects out of it, right? as this is also my first time to install moulding...

and can I just use liquid nail to glue the moulding onto the drywall without nails?

Thanks for answering ...

I want to see the pictures when you are done, kuir****g.

This trim that you want to use for moulding, and you say you want to put it on with liquid nails. I have never heard of that. What are liquid nails? Glue?

That would make the job really easy. The only problem I would have is the corners, and making them look good.

You'll still want to use some nails in order to hold the baseboard in place while the glue sets up.

the good news is I got to use my tool then Porter Cable finish nailer... the bad news is I have steel everywhere... I intend to use just regular nail... and hope the nailed through nailer, can punch through the steels and stick there... I know it isn't going to as clean nail as wood...

Thats why you could have put a nailer in before you built the walls. If you want to use just Liquid nails be sure to support the trim toghly to the wall untill the glue sets. You can do this but it is a real PITA.

The MDF is fine. I actually found it cheaper on ebay! Nail if you have wood backer installed. If not, you can use screws designed for this purpose. They are called trim head screws.

Thanks for the valuable info. I like the self drilling screws from amazon... anyhow... will look closer when I am at that stage...

I am a Ebay fan also except when it comes to item from US which requires local pickup or expensive shipping... It is kind of out of reach for me... I have no idea why Canada is so much difference from USA when it comes to price competitive ...etc. it is always a bit or a lot more expensive here in Canada....

Any trick attaching trims to brick walls (what some sort of plaster surface)? Last time I used liquid nail (glue) and it did okay but I had to finish the job with colored gap filler and made a mess on the wall (next time I will use masking tape).
