In the process of replacing the skirting boards in the house and was wondering what would be the best way to fit them with. The choice is either screws and rawplugs or glue. It's a 1950's built house and internal walls are a mixture of brick and spanish brick. Some of the walls still have the original wood wedges that were hammered between the bricks used for nailing the old boards on. However some of the walls dont have them. Any advice would be much appreciated please.

Screw and plugs or if you’ve a nail gun pin and grab adhesive.

On Spanish bricks I wouldn't waste my time trying to screw the skirting, glue every time, unless you can find the propeller wedges.

Thanks guys. It looks like a combination of the two methods might be needed. So I got some solvent free Evostick glue to use on Spanish brick walls and some screws and plugs for normal brick walls.

I doubt that would work. Some years ago a carpet fitter gave me a tube of what they use to glue metal thresholds to concrete floors. Can't remember the name but it really worked.

The nearest product commonly available is

Just keep in mind that it is an 'expanding foam' type of adhesive so, not too much, and have battens/wedges available to brace the skirting against an opposing wall. Leave bracing in place for 24 hours.
