I think some of you must used external contractors or some local people to install crown molding in home.

how much do you guys think I should pay to install crown molding in 16X18 room?

I am planning to do for 5 bedrooms of average size 15X15 size. And in Dining room - chair rails extension

If you guys know any cheaper and best contact..please pm me.

I can buy the materials from Bison hardwoods or any other hardwood place.

I would love to get names of people who do great crown molding installation with decent prices as well! We are looking at buying a home that only has it in the dining room and it will drive me nutso! We will be in the Humble /Atascocita area.

It can range from 2 to 5 dollars per linear foot of molding run under 10 foot ceilings. Plus painting or staining. Furniture moving if any is in the way is extra. This is labor no materials at all.

Just to give you an idea.

Don't go too cheap on it either, good crown molding makes a home look awesome! I would recommend not getting molding with intricate details. Much harder to clean :P

Spamming aside, this is the Houston, TX forum...so not only did you not read the TOS, you were way off in the geography department.

^^^LOL!

Anyways, just go to a place close by where new construction is going on, look for somebody working on what you want and ask them if they do side jobs. Some speak English, some don't, but almost all of them understand money and what you're asking for. This works well for painting, crown molding, flooring, etc.

There was a guy who did my whole street. In my house I had him do the following:

Dining room: chair rails/box moldings and crown molding (14x11)
Study: crown molding (12x13)
Master Bedroom: crown molding (17x16)
Gameroom: chair rail (20x16)

It cost me $400 for all of these rooms combined. He provided the materials. The wood was bare. He just measured the wood and put it into place. I went back later and caulked and painted it white (which was very easy to do - a little painter's tape for straight edges and glossy white paint). They look fantastic!!

I had it done about 3 years ago. I used the guy who was doing all of the trim carpentry for the builder in my neighborhood. I paid $2 per linear foot for double crown molding, which included the material. I did triple crown in the living room, and I think he charged me an extra $1 per foot for that. The material was already pre-primed, but I had to go back and caulk and paint afterwards. If you are interested, his name is Rufino Gonzalez, and his number is 832-768-4909. This was 3 years ago, so I'm not sure if it's still active.

"Dining room: chair rails/box moldings and crown molding (14x11)"

I just checked Lowes on line and just my cost for the crown molding for that one room would be $76.50...and that isn't what I would call the better molding.

I wonder how he could do it that cheap?

So much for a do it yourselfer saving money...
