I think they would work well for that application.

About 5- 10 on the inside with the supports inside

Will these screws be better than the nails to install crown molding?

In my experience, I'd say no - due to the fact that nails are so much easier to 'shoot in' while you are up on a ladder working and trying to hold the molding at the same time as you are fastening it. Trying to hold a drill and install one of these while on a ladder and holding the molding at the same time sound like a recipe for slipping and driving your drill through the molding or worse. But, it's certainly possible. I use very long nails to hold my molding - thus I'm making sure I get a good grip by driving them deep into the framing.

Can I use these with PVC brick molding? Or is there a better option? Thanks

Sounds like a perfect application for these and you'll be left with a much smaller hole to fill than if you used deck screws - and a much more secure hold from these than if you just used finish nails.

I had trouble with earlier wood screws and would not drive into wood without pilot drill hole. But these screws don't need pilot hole at all. These work great and will not buy ant other brand here after.
