Crown moulding captures a huge family of moulding types which are intended to stylishly flare out to a finished top edge. Decorative crown moulding is generally used for covering walls, pilasters, and cabinetry, and is used extensively in the creation of interior and exterior cornice assemblies and door headers and window surrounds.
The crown mouldings provided by First Class Building Products interior mouldings are generally made of high density polyurethane. However, we also manufacturer mouldings in other materials like glass-fiber reinforced gypsum (GRG) and fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) materials.
Crown mouldings are normally applied along the joints where ceiling meets wall. Typically it is not placed flush against the wall nor against the ceiling. Instead, when viewed from the moulding's cross-section, it, the ceiling, and the wall form a "hollow" triangle. This requires complex cuts to form the corner where the two walls meet.
There are two common ways to fashion inside corners. One is to use a miter saw to cut the ends of the corner pieces along two axes concurrently. The other, called coping, is a two-step process, first to cut a simple miter and then to use a coping saw to undercut the miters.
We offer corner block moulding profiles to help make any installation project easy and painless.
Decorative moulding by First Class Building Products are supplied in a variety of building materials including, high density polyurethane (HDP), glass-fiber reinforced gypsum (GRG), and fiber reinforced polymer (FRP).
Most common interior moulding material is our high density polyurethane. Our HDP is used on both interior and exterior moulding construction projects. HDP is weather proof and bug resistant and will last a lifetime unlike traditional species of wood mouldings.
Mouldings are usually used for capping walls "crown moulding", chair rails, door surrounds like casing, pilasters and window headers.
Exterior mouldings like a cornice (from the Italian cornice meaning "ledge") is generally any horizontal decorative molding that crowns a building - the cornice over a door or window, for instance, or the cornice around the top edge of a pedestal or along the top of a window header or door crosshead.
