How to Remove Interior Trim
- First insert a prybar behind the trim and pry the against a small wood block.
- If a nail won't pry out, use a nailset to drive it deep into the trim, then pry away the trim.
- You can ease molding away from the wall by prying in two locations.
Also, should I remove crown molding? Crown molding is a common decorative trim between the top of the wall and the ceiling. When painting or making other repairs to wall, it is sometimes necessary to remove the crown molding. Prying the molding away from the wall evenly in small increments prevents cracking the molding during the process.
People also ask, how do you remove glued molding?
- Plug a heat gun into the nearest electrical outlet.
- Turn on the heat gun and direct the heat toward the molding.
- Slide the blade of a putty knife into the softened glue between the molding and the surface beneath.
- Work your way down the length of the molding, applying the heat as you go, to continue softening the glue.
How do I remove baseboards without damage?
Gently work a 6-inch metal putty knife behind the baseboard and wiggle the tool while pulling mostly forward to loosen the pins or finishing nails holding the trim on the wall. Start at one end of a piece of baseboard and carefully pry, progressing along the trim until the entire length comes free from the wall.
