Polyurethane Crown Molding

Polyurethane crown molding is a very durable and hard form of molding that can be used indoors or outdoors. If you use it outdoors, it can withstand the weather and harsh conditions that come with that. It has a very smooth surface that is easily cleaned if necessary.

Polyurethane crown molding is also very lightweight and easy to install compared to other forms of crown molding. It can be glued, nailed, or both, can be miter-cut just like wood and also cope jointed just like wood. You can glue it on with a continuous ¼” bead of premium polyurethane construction adhesive applied along the back edges of the crown moulding.

Polyurethane crown molding is also traditionally less expensive than going with real wood molding. Therefore, if you are on a budget while building or remodeling, this type of molding could be the way to go for you. You can save money and get a realistic alternative to traditional wood molding.
