How to Install Mouldings

how-to-install-mouldingsNeed help with your moulding project? Not a problem. With a few “tricks of the trade” your room will look great!

• We recommend prefinishing the mouldings before installing
• Install the moulding piece by piece, working your way around the room, leaving the nail heads exposed to allow for any repositioning.
• Avoid nailing the last 2 to 3 inches in each piece to avoid splitting. Nail in the curved or cove part of the moulding to better hide the nail holes.
• Nail mouldings into wood studs or jambs. Any good quality finishing nail properly counter sunk works well.
• C-clamps should be used to secure the moulding in the mitre box for more accurate cuts. Always use scrap wood between the clamp and the moulding to prevent surface damage.
