> Cutting Baseboards by doug seibert on 04/30/2006

When replacing baseboards I ran into some problems. Do I have to nail into studs only? I also ran into a lot of trouble when nailing (with a hammer) both the baseboards (to the studs) and the quarter round. Most often than not, I would hit the nail and it would not sink in at all. I ended up nicking my newly painted baseboards. Frustrating to say the least. Is a nail gun and perhaps nailing at an angle my solution?? I also ended up with gaps between the baseboard and the wall. It would not end up flush with the wall. Help
