pieces that cover the trim around the windows. Not sure if this is

windows, where you would typically paint the trim color, not the house
color). Anyway, I've noticed some of these pieces seem to be coming
loose, not near falling off, but enough to where they look off center

them being nailed in. What's the best way to secure these better? A
little adhesive near each corner? Caulk over the seams? Thanks!!
