Reusing Trim Moulding

The plan for reusing trim moulding

Reusing Trim Moulding

by: Gabriel A.

Your home has just undergone a makeover and you are wondering what to do with all the things that are replaced and removed from your home? This will be the worry of people who are concerned with the environment and that believes in the concept of recycling. Here is one of those very few tips that you can find here on the internet that discusses how you can reuse things removed from your remodeled home, specifically pertaining to trims. And I do mean that there are very few videos that feature recycling and reusing, that falls under the home improvement category.

Most videos will show you how to install, replace, and lure you to buying expensive accessories for your home but only few tells you how to recycle them, like what you can still do with sawdust or where can you use it instead of throwing it right inside the trash bag.This video is definitely one of those few videos that is recommended that you bookmark as future reference, in case you forgot. For a matter of fact, this definitely went into my archive.

This video presented by Bob Schmidt shows us where we could possibly use the trims instead of disposing them. Imagine how much money you can save for considering this option and applying it for your home. Imagine how much, or how little(I personally do not consider recycling a little of an act, I consider it a brave and bold act of taking care of our word for a change), you have just helped our degenerating environment to somehow sustain itself a little bit more. Hey a bundle of little acts to save the world can make a big difference in the future.

Every tiny decimal of an act still counts. Anyways, Bob Schmidt will show you ideas on how to reuse trims in this video. Applying that concept, you can also figure out what to do, or how to reuse, other things that can still be useful. Remember those early days when we are young and we used to stick anything together to make a toy? Well, this is how fun this is, except that it is better than just making your own unique toy, and your family and perhaps, our planet and the future generations will benefit from this. Such a useful information inside a video that this is.

Painting Trim and Moulding

Painting Trim and Moulding

synopsis by: Talat Z.

You know when you are doing the interior painting; painting things in a right order can save your time and give you more perfect results when working on different types of trim and moulding.

For example if you are painting edges of the wall before you paint the wall itself. Up there where the wall is near to ceiling a painting pad is great tool to use. It’s a painting pad with some guide wheel at the top of it that moves along the ceiling. It is simpler to use, just place it on the wall and pull it along. Next is painting you woodwork like your baseboards and trim. Remember to paint this before you paint the wall. And you don’t have to worry if you get some of this trim paint along the wall itself. Now paint roller swirl off tiny spects of paint when you use them. So you want to protect this newly painted baseboard you just finished, before we start rolling we can do that with some painters tape or masking tape. Just put the tape on at very top of the baseboard so that it actually set as a shield. Now the paint spects will fall on the tape and not on the baseboard.

Once the trim or moulding paint is dry, we will cut the wall color intermitted. Again using the paint pad with the guide wheels we will do that. There is no faster way to paint those inside corners than with this corner painting pad. Finally roll up the walls. The results will be neat, clean and look like they are done by an expert.

Types of Decorative Exterior Moulding

The types of decorative exterior moulding

Types of Decorative Exterior Moulding

by: Jeremy K.

Exterior mouldings are usually used to cap cornices and hide surface gaps and seams, but they are also widely used for ornamental purposes. They provide effortless decoration that enhances the appearance of the house.

Decorative exterior mouldings are made from different materials. While most of them are made from stone, others are made from cheaper materials such as polyurethane, foam, and PVC. These materials share many similar characteristics, but they also have several limitations and differences.

There are different types of decorative exterior mouldings. Among these types are the following.

1. Architraves

Architraves are one of the oldest mouldings used to spruce up the exteriors of the house. The ancient Romans had used elaborate architraves to decorate their temples and other important buildings. In modern houses, these decorative pieces are used to frame the areas surrounding windows or doors, acting as a frame that provides bold highlights.

2. Hood Moldings

Hood moldings, or hood molds, are installed because of practical purposes. They are an effective tool to provide protection against the heat of the sun and to keep the rain from getting inside the house. These decorative exterior mouldings are placed above doorways and windows.

3. Parapets

In the olden days, parapets are used to defend a raised structure from attacks. Today, they are used for decorative purposes, although they still serve the same purpose as in ancient times.

4. Keystones

Keystones are decorative stone pieces placed on the central of a house. They sometimes stand for something, as they represent a certain group, organization, or society. They are usually found in churches, castles, and government houses but homeowners can also use them to decorate the exterior of their house.

5. Trusses

There are two types of trusses: pitched (or sometimes called common trusses), and parallel chord (also known as flat trusses). Parallel chord trusses are used in floor construction, while pitched trusses provide a triangular decoration for the house’s exterior.

6. Quoins

These decorative exterior mouldings are placed at the corner of walls and structures mainly to provide support. However, in recent years, quoins are installed to make a house looks like it has a strong foundation.

Moulding: Coping Basics

How to design Coping Basis moulding

Moulding: Coping Basics

synopsis by: Talat Z.

This article will show you how cope various moldings using the dremel tool. What we going to talk about is coping basics. Now as a frame of reference its actually easier to explain coping by telling you first what it isn’t and where it is not used.

Where you don’t use it is the outside corner. An outside corner is always mitered. Two faces of the molding usually cut at a 45 and fit together end to end and that’s pretty basic. However on the inside corners, People often apply the same principle and they miter the inside corners. The two faces of the molding fit together end to end again, however that works nicely in the shop but in the reality of the house where the floor can be lumpy there could be imperfections. The corners of the molding could be very difficult to tight on a project. Especially when you nail, the nails force the molding to the wall obviously. That in so doing often open the joint at the corner of the molding either at the top or bottom or both. So its strictly get right in real life application. That’s where coping comes into play.

Now coping can only be done on an inside corner. The good news is; most corners of inside. The secret to coping is that why it is so good, is this that a coped joint removes on of the faces that a miter joint has leaving you with the sharp leading edge. That enables you to make both pieces of moldings fit together nicely. Another secret is that piece A actually lays over piece B. So when temperature fluctuations make the molding on the move around, you can cut this joint so that it stay very joint. And once you get the hack of it, its actually easier and faster to install. So these are some coping basics for more information visit http://www.monkeysee.com. Also, check out this great video on coping basics with regard to moulding.

Crown Moulding In Three Easy Steps

Design Crown moulding in three easy steps

Crown Moulding in Three Easy Steps

synopsis by: Talat Z.

Step number one of the three steps in this article is to find the spring angle of your crown molding. If you are a contractor and you have done crown molding projects before, you might already be familiar with the spring angles. If not, you are about to learn one of the best secret in crown molding. And it is that crown molding comes in three different common spring angles and the spring angle is simply the degree that your molding sits off when installed to the wall. The three common spring angles are 38, 45 ad 52 degrees. So your crown molding will set at these three angles off the wall. Once you know the spring angle of your crown molding you simply use the matching jig and that does the adjustment for you.

Step number two is setting your saw. Your left hand miter is always set to the degree of your corner. Because most corners are not square. You will need to measure exact degree of your corner with the angle finder or protector. Once you determine the exact degree of your corner divide that number in half and that is your saw setting.

Step number three is to determine which cut you need to make and follow the pictures. The two most common corners are inside corners and outside corners. A left side and a right side as you are facing the corner. For example if you want to make an inside left cut, you find the picture on the instruction it says left, it shows you to place the taper or small size of the jig towards the saw fence and then place molding on top of the jig with the face down and the detail down, and then carefully make your cut.

Cutting Your Crown Moulding

Home Improvement and Maintenance Tips: 

Cut crown moulding

How to cut crown moulding

synopsis by: Talat Z.

This article will explain how to cut crown moulding. There are couple of ways we can go about this and it really depends on whether you have a miter saw or a compound miter saw.

If you are using just a miter saw you got to set it up at forty five degrees angles. Then what you are going to do is you are going to break your crown moulding and turn it upside down. The approximate the ceiling and the wall. And that’s how we want to make our cuts. so with the flats of crown moulding on the base and on the back you can line up your marks where you want to cut it. And turn on the saw and cut it with nice smooth control cut.

Now the next way to do it with the compound miter saw is there are marks that are approximately a right around thirty three degrees. These marks are on most compound saws. So you can set the crown moulding on the marks and then you also set the angle at the back. Those alignment marks allows you to do is lay your piece flat. Again with the bottom of moulding towards the back. Now you can make the cut. With those case where making the right angle so that when you cut it you are actually going to come up with the same cut as made before. Swing the saw handle towards the desired angle.

So you can either use a compound miter saw or a standard miter saw. It depends upon how you want your piece to wind up looking. One little thing to keep in mind is that when you are out putting crown moulding its always get a bit extra, particularly if you are not used of cutting a lot of it. Also when you make your measurements it’s a good idea to mark your pieces at least eight inches longer. That will allow you to make sure when you cut it, it fits properly up into the ceiling.

Crown Moulding ABC’s

Crown Moulding

Install Crown Moulding


synopsis by: Laura D.

Installing crown moulding can be easy with the proper tools and set up. Wood has always been a first choice for consumers, but now urethane is a popular choice. Urethane is lightweight flexible and looks just like solid wood. It comes pre-primed as well simplifying the process. You will want to make sure you have someone to help you to put up the crown moulding, set your tools up to be nearby at all time, and a miter saw is required as well.

To measure lengths, measure each wall lengths at ceiling corner to corner, the length will be the long points for cutting inside corners at a 45 degree angle. For the outside corner, the measurements from the wall to the corner will be the short points for the moulding, on that angle. You can begin cutting the moulding when you have all measurements for the room. Make sure to cut the moulding to length, cut at the same angle on the saw as the installation, and position the moulding on the saw upside down and backwards. You can also make slash marks on the moulding indicating the direction of the cut.

This will allow you to visualize  how the piece will fit when it is installed. Remember, if you are cutting an inside corner on your right side, turn the saw blade to the left, and if you are cutting an inside corner on your left side, then turn the saw blade to your right. When making cuts, install moulding as tightly as possible. Cut the moulding 1/4 inch longer n each 10 foot section to ensure a snug fit and to create a small amount of tension. For non-corner seams, use use straight butt joints or factory cuts. To install urethane, apply construction adhesive along the top and bottom surfaces that contact the wall. Start at one corner and press the moulding into place.

After securing the corners, press the rest of the moulding  into place along the surface and fasten with non corrosive nails. Remember to use latex gloves before you start!

Painting Your Crown Moulding

Paint Crown Moulding

How to paint crown moulding


synopsis by: Laura D.

The narrator does an excellent job showing how painting your crown moulding can be a very upbeat and exciting experience. It is very economical to do this task yourself as it will cost a few hundred dollars, depending on the size of your room, to hire someone.

The tools that you will need for this project are: Paint Brush, two inches and paint, of course. Make sure to ask someone at your local store what type of paint is recommended for your house or condo. You may want to use a primer as well, but that depends if on how many coats of paint are already on your crown moulding. The narrator recommends buying a China Bristle brush and says to not use a cheap brush.

Now to get started painting, use a small plastic bucket so you do not spill any paint. You will also want to make sure to have a roller. Pour pain into your bucket about one or two inches. Take your brush and dip it into the paint, and wipe the edges so no paint falls off. You will want to start in the middle of the crown moulding and glide your brush from left to right. The narrator recommends leaving on side wetter on the brush than the other. It is pertinent to hold the brush like you are holding a fork, and make sure it is facing the moulding horizontally. If you paint this way, then you will not get paint on the part of the wall where there is no crown moulding.

Make sure to use long strokes when painting. If you want to cut into the wall where there is no crown moulding, then another day will be added to your weekend! Instead of rushing through this process, stay disciplined and take your time. It is easier to do this in one process rather than two. One coat of paint is fine. If you use two coats of paint, it might look blotchy in some places. After, you complete these steps, you should be done in a few hours. Good luck!
