Crown molding trim is an elegant way to decorate the upper portion of walls in a room. However, whether due to irregularities in the walls or the expansion or contraction of the wood, unsightly gaps can be present between the trim and the wall. Taking care of the gaps is an easy fix that requires a ladder and a caulking gun.
Filling the Gaps
With a caulking gun and a tube of silicone acrylic caulk, you can easily fill the gaps between crown molding and walls. Silicone caulk adheres to both surfaces well, is easy to smooth with your finger and remains flexible, allowing the wood to "breathe". It's also easy to paint.
