I am adding crown molding in the basement and the walls are concrete. What could we use that will hold the molding to the walls?
You could use construction adhesive or normally I attach a ledger with tapcon or Hilti gun and then nail the base to that.
Many times one uses 3-4 inch long sections of wooden triangular supports to attach to the wall in intervals, and the crown molding is nailed to these, and perhaps also into the floor joists above through the ceiling. A ledger or trim piece can also work attached as redoverfarm mentioned.
