Q:Can You use as a door casing?
by|Nov 25, 2017
3 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Mich, Thank you for your question and interest in our 8667 MDF base moulding. While this moulding is traditionally used as a base moulding, there is no reason why it cannot be used as a casing as well. This base has been used in buildups for crown mouldings around the ceiling and even in the building of fireplace mantles. How you choose to wrap your door casings is yours to fit your desires. We would love to see some pictures, should you choose to use our model 8667 moulding for your project.

by|May 5, 2023

    A:  Yes you could.

    by|May 6, 2023

      A:  You could, I guess. It is a matter of taste. Although made of the same material as door casings, it is not designed for that but for baseboard molding.

      A:  pieces are 8 feet long.

      by|May 5, 2023

        A:  No, it does not. This product is so much easier to work with than real wood that I have had no problem disguising mitered joints.

        Q:Can I use this as a chair railing?

        Answer This Question

        A:  You could if the pattern fits your decor. Home Depot does sell specific chair railing molding though.

        by|May 5, 2023

        A:  You could, of course, but I would not. Most chair rail is the same on the top as it is on the bottom, that is, a symmetrical profile. The square bottom would look odd as would the lack of symmetry. You could put a cove molding at the bottom to soften it a bit, but why not use chair rail molding?

        by|May 5, 2023

        A:  I don't see why you couldn't use this for caring. If you're looking for a big casing.

        by|May 6, 2023

          A:  NOPE

          by|Jan 5, 2019

            A:  Hi and thank you for your interest in our 8667 MDF base moulding. This product is usually used in base board application, but your needs may be different. We do offer a selection of Hous of Fara chair rail mouldings for this purpose. If you are after a wider chair rail profile look, you can do what is called a buildup, using multiple pieces of mouldings to achieve the look you are after. Generally, a chair rail would be thicker at some point than a base board. We hope this helps with your project needs.

              Q:What is the matching door/window molding for this?

              Answer This Question

              A:  Orange

              by|Jan 5, 2019

                A:  I hadn't thought of this but it seems a reasonable question. I'm simply using profile 376 colonial that was used in my house, refurbishing or replacing as necessary. It doesn't match the original base either. Corner blocks and fluted casing would make a nice match and homedepot.com has several choices. You could also take a look at this one: 8835 3/4 in. x 3-1/4 in. x 96 in. MDF Casing Moulding if you do miter corners. Would look great with this base. I dislike MDF because it is rather fragile and cannot withstand moisture. Chose this base molding because I like the look, price is reasonable, and it is very easy to cut with a coping saw. Casing takes more of a beating so I chose solid wood. One more note. The back of this MDF molding has not been treated or finished in any way. I recommend saturating the back with boiled linseed oil and let dry before you install it. It will drink the oil in and hopefully protect from humidity and an occasional contact with water. At least that is what I am counting on.

                    Q:I am trying to match the paint on this molding. Is it some generic tint base primer?

                    A:  George, thank you for your question and interest in our 8667 MDF base. The primer is commercially applied and bought in bulk, any good quality white primer Home Depot sells will be good to use. Since it is has only been primed, it is necessary to apply a good finish coat of paint over the primer to help protect the moulding. We hope this helps to answer your question.

                        A:  Yes you can

                        by|Apr 24, 2019

                          A:  Home depot does have this base that meets your height requirement: http://www.homedepot.com/p/House-of-Fara-3-4-in-x-6-1-2-in-x-8-ft-Oak-Victorian-Base-Moulding-9666/202705430 It is a little on the expensive side but would be very impressive with a golden oak or provincial stain. If you want something a little less expensive and are planning on painting it you could use 1 x 6 plain boards (which measure 5-1/2" wide) than cap it off with something like this: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Alexandria-Moulding-WM-163-11-16-in-x-1-3-8-in-x-96-in-Wood-Pine-Base-Cap-Moulding-0W163-20096C/205958716 Install the board first then nail this piece above it on the wall, tight to the board. Finished height will be 6-7/8". Once you have it installed the gap between the two will disappear. Will be a very nice look. For something less expensive and plainer in appearance you could use a cove or quarter-round instead of the fancy moulding. Either way it will create a classic look from a time when they called these "mop boards" and the practical purpose was to protect the plaster from a wet floor mop rather than simply a decoration that keeps the vacuum cleaner from damaging the wall as they are today.

                          A:  There is no wood grain since these are made of compressed sawdust and resin. They are primed white. There are painting techniques that simulate wood grain and those would work on this molding.

                          by|May 3, 2023

                          A:  They come painted with primer, so I would say no, you can only paint them.

                          by|May 5, 2023

                            A:  The molding has a primer coat of white, so it only can be painted. I believe Home Depot does sell wood, not MDF, unpainted molding if base or premium wood varieties.

                            by|May 4, 2023

                            A:  Yes, you can stain the base moulding.
