Crown Molding Installation History
Installing Crown Molding dates back to the ancient Greeks and Romans. Needless to say the design feature has stood the test of time. In more recent times crown moulding installation was used in construction to cover the joint imperfections between the wall and the ceiling. With most homes in the USA built with drywall installing crown molding is mostly used for decoration these days. Enough of the history lesson; now lets get to the fun, it looks amazing!
Choosing the Right Style of Crown Molding is Critical
Crown Molding can add depth to your ceilings if done correctly. And by done correctly, we mean choosing a style that fits the size of the room, height of ceilings, and overall decor of the room. Painting crown molding to either match the ceilings or walls, can have dramatic visual effects as well. Or maybe you want to showcase it as an accent color, the choices are almost limitless.

The Crown Molding Installation Process with Houston Carpenters
Now that we have discussed the design specifications and chosen our material. It’s time to start installing crown moulding. First thing we do to install crown molding before cutting one crown molding piece is measure the linear foot of material needed and analyze your walls. Are they straight? Are they bowed? Are they crooked? Location of the wall studs? We take all these factors into consideration to ensure a beautiful finish product. We will whip out our miter saw and miter saw table, make sure the saw blade is sharp and start cutting crown molding. The miter saw will insure tight crown molding corners. Tight crown molding corners are the tell tale sign a carpenter know what they are doing. There are two types of crown molding corners, which are the inside corner and outside corner. The idea is to have the least amount of crown molding pieces left over and use the least amount of wood filler. All that is left to do is paint crown molding. Painting the molding will include filling in the nail holes from the finish nails.
