   Installing crown molding.   

 

Crown molding is at the present used so as to add a formal look to a room or the entire house house, never the less it has a practical function by hiding the joint between walls also ceilings. Widths and also designs vary from simple flat molding to the extra commonly used ornamental moldings. Wider, more elaborate moldings have a tendency to want bigger spaces and higher ceiling to look nicely proportioned. For a room with eight-foot high ceilings, select a molding that's about three ¼-inch wide.

 

 

 

Crown molding is out there in several supplies, all of that are appropriate for portray, together with medium density fiberboard (MDF) and polyurethane. Unlike wooden, these materials do not comprise knots and will not wrap or twist. In fact, for those who prefer a pure look, nothing quite equals the great thing about wood.

 

  1. Measure the wood molding project. Before you can set up to do your crown molding, you will have to determine the place the trim will start on the walls and ceiling. Place a short size of trim towards a carpenter's square so one arm of the sq. represents the wall and the opposite represents the ceiling. Report how far down the wall the trim will prolong in addition to how far alongside the ceiling the trim will extend.

 

 2. Mark the crown molding location. Starting at one corner, then measure and mark the wall and ceiling measurements throughout the room. Snap a chalk line on your walls around the entire room. With a stud finder, find and mark the studs along the tops of the walls, marking all the stud areas. Also find and mark ceiling joists that lie perpendicular to the walls.

 

 3. Test the corners for square. Outside corners are usually not always 90 degrees, in older homes, and a typical forty five degree miter is not going to end in a tight joint if the corners in your home aren't square. Minimize a length of crown molding, and you can hold it along the guidelines, extending it a few inches past the corner. Mark a line on the ceiling along the highest fringe of the trim, extending the line the complete length of the piece. Repeat the process on the adjacent wall, intersecting the primary mark.

 

4. Determine the miter angle. Use a bevel gauge to measure the angle of the nook and to set up the chopping angle of your saw. Maintain the handle of the gauge towards one of the walls, and open the blade so it aligns with the nook and the purpose at which the strains drawn on the ceiling intersect. Set the base and tilt the blade of the saw to the angle on the bevel gauge.

5. Minimize the molding. Place the crown molding the other way up on the saw base with the bottom edge,( the edge to be put in against the wall ) flush against the fence. If it will likely be installed towards the left of the corner, place it to the left of the blade. If the trim shall be to the left of the corner, set it on the left facet of the blade. Holding the crown molding towards the fence with your fingers clear of the blade and aligning your mark with the blade, then saw the crown molding.

 

 

 6. Fasten the crown molding in the proper place. Align the crown molding with the chalk lines keeping its mitered end towards the corner, and then fasten the crown molding with a 2 ½-inch finishing nail at each wall stud and ceiling joist. For hardwood, first pre- drill pilot holes. When the ceiling joist run parallel to the wall, fasten the trim to the ceiling with a nail at every stud finish and apply adhesive in between. Spread wood glue on each mitered ends of the crown molding. Pre-drill a pilot hole for a 1 ¼-inch finish nail nailing the joint from each side of the nook, after which drive in the nails. Sink the nails with a nail set.

 

 

 

 

 7. Fasten trim at an inside corner. Regulate the bevel gauge to the angle of the nook, after which measure the angle with a protractor. Set the angle to one half that angle. Put the crown molding proper side up on the noticed base, and miter the pieces. Fasten the crown molding in place, driving 2 ½-inch finishing nails into the wall studs and ceiling joists. Next then fill the nail holes with wood filler if you'll be applying a clear end, use latex hole filler if you can be portray the crown molding. Nice job on putting in crown molding.
