Applying crown molding for your home is a good way to beautify it. It gives different touch and appearance without spending much money. Moreover, if you apply it by yourselves, it will be cheaper for you. However, you have to be careful of the measurement in applying it. Without precise measurement, the crown molding will not look good at all. The one of the measurement is about the crown molding angles. Here, you will deal with the degree of the inclination. Actually, it is not as complicated as imagined if you know the right way to measure the angles. The way will be explained briefly below.
Firstly, you have to find the spring angles. Spring angles are in divided in three which are 38 degree, 42 degree, and 52 degree. Spring angles are, actually, the position of the inclination of the crown molding where it places on the walls. The application will be different for height level of the ceiling. If you have higher ceiling it is better to tilt up the crown molding. In other hand, it is better to be tilted down if the ceiling is high. The next is setting your saw. It means that you have to measure the corner and then, the result is divided by two. Actually, the good home construction has 90 degree for the square corner, but sometimes, some homes don’t have it let alone for old home. Therefore, you need an angle finder to find the precise measurement. The application of this tool is quite easy, just spread the legs out to the walls, and then, lock the center brass nut. You can read the result on number which is pointed by the arrow. The, as mentioned before, it is divided by two. Now, you have the crown molding angles.
To get better ideas about the angles, then, you have to look at the chart of crown molding angles. This chart offers the precise degree of miter and bevel setting based on the spring angle types.
