We all understand how difficult it is to cut angles in these decorative crown moldings, which are way different than conventional moldings, unless you are a professional installer. We offer the option of purchasing pre-cut corners of the same molding style and finish, which make the installation process easier. Inside and outside corners are available (these are not corner blocks).
You can purchase these pre-cut corners on the product page as an option or on the corners page.
Our pre-cut corners are shipped in two separate pieces, which allows you to correct any ceiling or wall imperfection by slightly moving these two pieces together.
1- Take the two pieces of the molding corner and put them together in your ceiling corner, trying to achieve the best position according to the angle. Make sure the flat mounting sections of the molding, the top and bottom ones, are laid down right on both the ceiling and the wall.
2- Hold one of the pieces very tight with one hand, take the other one off, grab the nailer with the other hand, and nail the held piece. Nail the top and bottom of the corner piece.
3- Reposition the other piece of corner and nail it together according to the original position.
4- Take your piece of crown molding and put it against the ceiling, following the sequence of your installed corner, and nail it, top and bottom.
5- Smoothly apply caulking in the ties and let it dry (black caulking if your molding base is black and white if your molding base is white).
6- Use touch-up paint (sold separately) to paint on your seams and hide them as much as you can. Try to imitate the finish as much as you can as well.
DISCLAIMER: Our corners are perfectly cut at the right angle, but sometimes ceilings and walls are not straight, which brings about some issues during the installation process. In this type of situation, we are not responsible for the final installation result.
