The inverted crown molding is a type of finish carried out on the ceiling, usually in plaster. Instead of the traditional lining, it is the molding that takes care of the environment. Depending on its format, space lighting is applied in different ways. In addition to inverted, there are also open and closed.

Unlike the others, the inverted crown molding has openings on the sides and it is in this space where the lights are inserted. That is, it is “outside”, causing the impression of the plaster being lower. In open spaces, on the other hand, the lights are “inside”; closed, lighting is usually done with spots.

4 main questions about inverted crown molding

It is normal to have some doubts about this type of finish. See below the main information about the crown molding, from its installation, how to care for and clean it:

  • How is the installation done? The procedure can be done even if the house has no slab. The crown molding can replace the lining or be placed below the slab. The gypsum boards are placed on a support, connected by cables to the roof.
  • How much does it cost to install plaster molding? The values ​​may vary according to the region in which the service is contracted. In addition, the location, the type of installation and the difficulty of the service must be considered. These details are added to the final price, which is calculated per square meter ($$-$$$).
  • What if there is infiltration? Gypsum is an easy-to-maintain material, so it may puncture and leak a leak. However, the repair can be done by yourself, with gypsum powder or with the help of a professional. The important thing is that the leak in the roof is fixed so that it does not happen again.
  • How to clean? A dry mop is enough to remove the dust from the plaster molding. Because it is fragile, do not put water in contact, or a damp cloth. Also, remember not to lean on the material.
