Interior trim repair

Appears that all trim (ceiling, corners, etc) are attached in some manner with hidden staples ? I have several areas were trim has become lose, how does one reattach. Staples, glue, double faced tape. Any help is appreciated.

Most of the time they are nailed, and then the holes are filled with putty. Nails or staples are fine, only issue is that it might be going into aluminum, and that can be fun sometimes.

They use air powered brad nailers - holes only slightly larger than pin nailers.

They use pin nailers, it shoots a23 gauge headless pin in without splitting the wood. Harbor Freight has them for $25 and they have good reviews. I just ordered one for my trim.....Bruce

I presume that this nail/brad/pin method is the same for the ceiling trim also.

Thanks for the replies

A brad nailer is different than a pin nailer, a brad had a head on the end, a pin does not. A brad will leave a bigger hole that will have to be filled, a pin will leave a mark that you can hardly see. Either should work on ceiling trim......Bruce
