How is Crown Molding Made Easy – Do It Yourself Crown Molding in the News!
Finney Puts It to the Test…
By Michael Finney – Sept 13 2006
Crown molding puts a fine finishing touch on homes, but that touch does not come cheap or easy. But one product promises to make crown molding as easy to put up as holiday decorations.
We’re checking out Easy Crown Molding. Its name is the claim.
Its supposed to be easy to put up and attractive once there. Peel, stick, done! It sure looks easy. Rick Ali and his sister Ayisha are helping Michael Finney give the Easy Crown Molding a workout.
The tape does stick. The instructions say to overlap the materials so we do. Rick Ali, Hayward; “It’s really not that bad, the sticky thing.”
The kit comes with corner units, but since our corners are all ‘innies’ and not ‘outties’, we don’t need them. There are sixteen sections just over four feet long each, so we work our way around the room, overlapping as we go. Rick Ali: It is easy to work with, with scissors, it’s easy to cut the pieces to length.
Here Rick is making the final cut and putting in the last piece. Rick Ali: “It can go in, that looks better right?” He cuts the length too short… Rick Ali: “Oh we just made it. That’s Funny.” The instructions also say you don’t have to caulk, but all of us agree, it sure would nicer if you take the time to caulk.
Rich says he would recommend the product to other homeowners.
