DIY: How to Install Crown Molding

Update your home this fall with this DIY crown molding installation with professional results.   Adding crown molding will add visual interest and value to your home. The first step would be deciding what kind of crown molding you would like. Wood molding can be expensive, so an alternate to wood is MDF, a combination of wood and resins. It comes pre-primed, so it is ready to be painted whatever color you would like. MDF can warp, so do not use it in the bathroom or kitchen due to the humidity.

The hardest part of the crown molding installation is cutting the corners. A coping saw is best to use and is also good for a beginner. Also, don’t worry because any gap made by the cope cut can easily be concealed by caulk. Another tool that can make the job easier is a power miter saw, it is accurate a makes a very clean cut.

This project will take up a weekend, cost between $250-$500, and the level of difficulty is hard. To get the next steps, click the link.
