do you glue your trim to the drywall or just shoot it with finishing nails.
I like to shoot pl premium on the back of any trim I use...casement, baseboard, crown, chair.
it depends, I usually like to install then sand, a little more time consuming, but if I need to take a bit of one side of the moulding so its meets nicey nicey to the other side, thats what i'll do.hard to find guys like you!...do you keep sandpaper in your back pocket to hit the cuts after you saw also??? .............i use to work with a crew would sand all their cuts down and glue...........HEAVEN !! oh, and they wouldnt shoot nails into beads also
Well for starters stop buying crappy caulk youre spending more in labor paying your guys to recaulk. when you install trim you should cope the inside corners instead of cutting 45s and glue the outsides and that'll resolve your biggest issue.Good Afternoon,
I am looking for ways to reduce my overhead on this huge 75 unit mid rise building. There is ALOT of molding in these units; crown, neck, base, and chair. Because these units are not sold yet, I have to maintain these units, and at least twice a year recaulk them. I am looking for a way to cut this down. Is there a caulk that anyone swears by? We use builders grade caulk, which costs about 2 dollars a bottle, but would gladly pay more for a more flexible caulk which does not crack with the temperature. Please help. Thank you for your time.
lol, I was feeling down today.Pulte, Centex, they're both the same nationwide resid development company now.
Alex, wherever your problem is, whichever state, etc. I'd not get caught up in the details and just make sure to hire a quality American company that employs quality minded American workers that will guarantee their work.
Pay them good and let the GC and Subs do their quality work. :thumbsup:
Quad for interior trim? Seriously????I use OSI quad caulking which is for window and siding mainly but is extremely flexible and does not shrink, however it must be used sparingly and cleaned up while applying with rag dampened in paint thinner since it has an oil base.
