Repair or Replace: Your Historic Crown Mouldings Are Separating From the Wall

When it comes to historic houses, crown moulding can separate from the walls or ceiling when the temperatures shift. This is especially true in cold weather, and not necessarily a sign that you need to repair or replace your historic mouldings. You might simply need to caulk it up a little bit and keep an eye on it. However, if the style of historic mouldings is bumped or worn to the point where it no longer looks attractive, you might want to consider replacing your mouldings.
