Preparing trim

Hi,

My home is 3 years old and has settled in considerably. We want to prepare home in order to repaint. I have noticed that our walls and trim now have a considerable gap due to settling. How do I get rid of this gap? Do I apply caulk or am I to use screws and find the studs and pull the wall and trim together? Or is there some other way.

Thanks

YOU DONT WANT TO USE SCREWS. TRY CLEANING THE TRIM AND WALLS AND SANDING THEM A BIT. IT SHOULD HELP THE FIT.

You have just entered.........THE TWIGHLIGHT ZONE!!!

It really depends on how large the gap is...
More than 1/4 of an inch ,then you should really screw them back..
Less then that??...Well ,flexible decorators caulk will be fine..
