Q What is the installation process?
A 1. If using corner blocks, install using caulking and nails, ensure nails are countersunk in the studs and joist.
2. Measure distance between corner blocks, walls, cut moulding 1/8” longer to ensure tight fit. Apply a generous amount of carpenters white glue and/or Instabond to all joints. Affix moulding to wall using 2” brad nails pigeion-toed every 16” on wall and ceiling, (moulding should have a straight appearance, do not attempt to follow any curves in walls, nail only the high spots and fill in the gaps between them) with a latex filler (i.e. Alex Plus).
3. Once moulding is in place wipe off excess caulking and glue with a damp cloth.
4. Fill all nail holes with non-shrinking spackling paste using a clean wet putty knife.
5. Once complete, we recommend using two coats of FLAT latex paint for an authentic finish.
