How to Install Plastic Crown Molding
Add architectural interest to your home's ceiling with plastic crown molding. We'll show you how to install it.
If you want the latest in crown molding, go with plastics. You'll find a wide range of styles, from relatively plain to incredibly intricate. Plastic crown moldings resemble the best work crafted in plaster and found in stately vintage homes, but plastic's low density slashes weight and cost.
Another appealing aspect of plastic moldings is the fact that the skill level required for successful installation is quite modest. With nothing more complicated than square cuts when you utilize corner and connector blocks, it's a project that's accessible to many people. You'll need just a few basic tools; you can even get by without a miter saw. The material has about the same density as pine, so even a hand-powered cut through the widest molding will barely cause you to break a sweat.
As you shop around, you'll discover several styles and sizes of molding and corner blocks. Be certain that the blocks you select coordinate with both the proportion and character of the molding.
