Both baseboard and crown moulding installation can be done as a DIY project or by hired professionals. The choice is largely dependent upon your skill level and financial considerations. Find out here the costs for crown moulding and baseboard in Toronto.

Crown moulding:

  • Sophisticated designs, staining or painting, heavy or exotic woods, the use of multiple mouldings, uneven walls and ceilings, irregular layouts with corners can bump the cost of materials and labour up to $25-$35 a foot, or $1,000-$1,400 for 10×10-foot room.
