This contractor needs to quit his day job and get one he’s capable of doing right! This is not a story about saving a few dollars or even time by hiring the first contractor that comes along to install Crown Molding, but about a contractor who actually believes in their work. You just can’t make this stuff up when you have photos.
A close friend hired a contractor to install Crown Molding and after the job was done, the painting contractor came in to finish the remaining work. The painting contractor couldn’t believe how bad the Crown Molding installation looked and pointed our several mistakes, and when I say several, I mean almost every place where there was new Crown Molding, it was a disaster.

Unfortunately for my friend he had to pay for material AGAIN to replace the new Crown Molding that was cut wrong, poorly measured and misaligned. This is one contractor who shouldn’t be performing this type of work!
The damage was done and it was time to move on and my friend did. He found a real crown molding installation professional who did the job right and impressed at the same time for less money.
