In the interior of pre-war homes, you would most likely find that the molding is covered in many layers of paint. You wouldn’t want to have to strip the old molding down to the bare wood since it is very time consuming and expensive. To completely replace it with all new molding is the more effective, low cost way to go.
Molding installation requires a skilled carpenter because the nearly invisible seams are very difficult to create, especially in very old spaces. The seam is where one piece of molding meets with the next. In crown molding installations, the ceiling and walls are very often not level so making the seams connect is extraordinarily challenging.
