Installing Refacing Materials

Moldings

This next section will explain options you have in cabinet moldings when ordering your materials. All of our moldings are made of solid hardwoods. If you are installing these molding by hand with finish nails, you will need to drill a pilot hole through the molding first, then nail the appropriate size finish nail through the molding. With a nail set you will want to countersink the nails, then cover the holes with a matching putty stick. Optional: Depending how straight your walls are you may want to caulk the space between the molding and the wall.

2-3/8 Crown Molding

This molding is used for the tops of the cabinets. If your cabinets are butted to the ceiling, be sure that you have enough room at the top of your cabinets between the ceiling and the top of the cabinet doors. The crown molding will hang down 1-7/8 so we recommend at least 2-1/2 clearance. If you have not cut and installed crown molding before, be advised it can tricky. Before you decide to order crown type molding, check the internet, there are a lot of websites on cutting and installing crown molding. For other options on trimming the tops of your cabinets see Base & Scribe Molding.

2-3/8 Base Molding

This molding is typically used at the base of the cabinets, however it can also be used at the top of the cabinets. If you plan to use base molding at the top of your cabinets, make sure you have enough room between the cabinet doors and ceiling, we recommend at least 3.

Scribe Molding

This molding is used to trim-out the space between the wall and the cabinets. This can also include the top and base of the cabinets. Our scribe molding is 7/8 wide by thick and has a decorative fluted design
