Holidays are settling down and the year is coming to an end. How many of you are returning to your 2015 New Year’s resolutions before crafting new ones for 2016? If you’re like me and many others, you had some sort of home improvement project on your list for the year. If that project was installing moulding, I’d like to offer a few tips to help you wrap up that up.
It’s no secret that I highly recommend Finished Elegance® – the most durable, flawless, and easy-to-install moulding on the market. For the person trying to wrap up a moulding project with a limited time frame, there’s just no better option. You can see the steps required to install traditional moulding compared to installing Finished Elegance below:
Because Finished Elegance is already coated with Eastman Cerfis™ Technology, it does not require painting. The benefit to you: less time to install and less frustration. You can see a video of the installation process here:
Whether you elect traditional moulding or Finished Elegance, here are some tips to help you get started and finish your project:
- Educate yourself first. Pick your moulding type, and dedicate the time needed based on the size of your space. YouTube is a great resource not just for cat videos, but for tutorials on installing moulding, as well.
- Measure twice! Take time to make sure your measurements are accurate. Once you’re in the store, purchase the amount of moulding you think you need PLUS 15% more. Measurement mistakes are almost inevitable, and having that extra moulding will save you a trip back to the store.
- It’s all about the tools. I highly recommended using a nail gun and miter saw for the smoothest installation process. If you don’t have these tools at home, you can borrow them from a friend or rent them.
Best of luck completing your resolution home improvement projects, and Happy New Year from all of us here at Woodgrain!
