Installing Trim & Crown Molding Made Easy

If you are building a new home or remodeling one you already own, you can never go wrong by adding architectural details. Adding architectural details can dramatically change the look of your home. At the most basic level of trim work that will serve to hide the differences between walls and floors and gaps around windows and doors. It was after the war of the 1950s that builders began to cut down the amount of casting, which went into a house so they could build them faster and cut costs to build. But new trim work can always be added later.

If you're in the market for buying and add trim to your home, you will first want to decide how big the trim you want to buy. If your room is very small and has a low ceiling trim you buy do not have to be a great as it would need to be in a room with higher ceilings and more square footage.

The first thing you want to select is your crown molding and then match your house window, door casings and baseboards to crown.

Size must be close to the same for your room to look right. Once you have your casting the next thing will be getting it painted and then get ready to put it up. I do not know on all paints their casting before they put it up but I do it because I think it's much easier to put molding across a couple so horses paint and then touch it up after it is installed. That's just my 2 cents worth to you about how to make your job a little easier.

Below are some tips that I will share with you that will help you learn how to install crown molding yourself. crown molding corner cuts will be your hardest to master, but with a little practice you will be a pro in no time.

1. Place your casting, where it will be installed. Placement molding in the room where it is installed will let it adjust. temperature in the room it will be used thus making it easier to work with.

2. Cut some small samples of crown molding, so you can see how joints work. Use them to check the corners you are working in. The test pieces can tell you whether or not the corner is out of square. You can see how much you need to adjust your saw cut to make the joints work.This is much easier and a whole lost less expensive than cutting up everything you're casting and not get the right angel.

3. Buy or borrow a good miter saw. Do a good job in every project always goes better if you have good tools to work with. A good miter saw will help your project go smoother.
