    I was hired to install cabinet crown molding with the supply already provided from a deconstruction of the cabinets earlier. Well the supply ran out about 10' short. My client has been unable to find the matches and is considering changing it out altogether ($$$). I told her to wait a day or...

    Hi, I have existing crown molding on my kitchen cabinets. My ceiling is 9' high and there is about 1' between top of existing crown and ceiling.

    I'm going to be installing some wainscoting and crown molding in a room and am a beginner so I probably won't be using the nail gun a whole lot. So I'm hopefully going to keep the nail gun price under $150. Below are three nail guns I was thinking about getting. I'm not sure what gauge I...

    Hi, I have a shingled low slope roof in the front of my house. It has an old wood gutter that is roofed over - it matches the crown molding I have elsewhere. Photo enclosed.

    I have a Sun room that attaches to the back of my Brick house. The issue i'm having is: where the two rooms meet there is a pretty big gap and weeds, bugs and air get into the back room. I put some spray foam in the gap to close it up, cut the foam but now i'm left with just ugly looking corners...

    I just moved into my house a few weeks ago, and today the crown molding in my living room detached from the wall. If it wasn't for the curtain rod, it would have completely fallen down. I don't remember seeing it coming free from the wall, but it very well could have gone unnoticed. I pulled...

    Hello all! I've installed crown molding before but never 4 1/4". I think my walls are off. On the inside corner, I used the 45 degree cut but when I installed it, the corners turn out to have a 1/4" gap at the top (ceiling) only. My miter saw is a simple cut (not a compound miter saw). I've been...

    Hi. Have a vintage condo. The floor and ceiling trim have been painted over what seems like, a million times. :furious: It's chipped, broken and all around nasty. What should I do? Remove it all and start over? Sand it all out and paint over it? Super confused. Thanks. :thumbup:

    I had new kitchen cabinets installed with a crown molding to the ceiling, only to find the ceiling is off...of course. Photos below. Besides that issue that I have to fix, look at the photos of the nails driven into the molding. No way to hide them I would guess, so is the crown damaged? It's...
