Installing Trim On Steel Studs

Question: I have a new house that uses metal stud walls. What is the proper way to fasten trim to a metal studded wall? Can liquid nails be used instead of nails?

Answer: Liquid nails or other construction adhesive is generally the best method for trim on metal studs if they did not lay a 2x4 in the lower channel or provide some wood facing for the trim.
