If you are planning to install door trim in your home or business, there are a few steps that will make the process easier. First, decide what color you want for your door trim. If you want to match other wood in your home, you might have to stain or paint multiple times to get the exact color. If you are installing door trim on exterior doors, you will want to coat the wood with a stronger sealant to resist the elements. Interior door trim also needs a clear coat, but won’t need to be quite as durable.
The next step is to cut the wood pieces at 45 degree angles at each corner, so they can meet uniformly and surround the door evenly. You can also lay the wood on the floor and use wood glue to attach the corners before you place it around the door. To attach the trim to the wall, experts recommend using screws, then a nail gun to firmly keep it in place. Since the weather in Charlotte, North Carolina is often humid and warm, exterior door trim can warp or become a home for termites, so you may want to think twice before choosing this option.
If you want to create a more dramatic look, you can also add thicker trim or a design such as crown moldings or other unique moldings around the top of the door. This style is frequently seen in newer homes, but the design comes from buildings that were built thousands of years ago, so it complements older homes, as well. At Crown Builders, we have expert staff members who understand your needs and can design beautiful new door trim for the entrances to your home.
