We are contemplating installing crown and window moldings inside our 1965 built colonial style home. But there are metal strips installed on all the drywall wall corners and around the window frames!

Am I going to have a problem nailing molding through or around the metal stips?

Because of a minor hand disability I ordered a cordless 16ga finish nailer (DeWalt) for the job. This should be good enough for the job, don't you think?

Thanks for any help,

Tom

I haven't used the new DeWalt yet, I believe it's battery driven no? I have read good write ups on it though and am contemplating a purchase...

16ga would be fine for the installtion, remember when you do nail the trim on ther windows to keep a small reveal of about 1/8 to 3/16 and keep the nailing back from the edge a min. 5/8 for the bead (the metal strips are drywall corner beads) & drywall.

Also the drywallers & rough framers aren't as interested in the square aspect of the installation at the time it's done on a drywall return window, so take into consideration you'll be dealing for the most part out of square joints.

Place the top & sides with tack nail, and then fit the bottom before driving them home. You'll probably need to do second cuts.
