We are in the process of building our first home and doing much of the work ourselves. Due to scheduling issues with contractors we were not able to get our trim painted prior to installation. Now we have a full house of trim and moulding to prime and paint. My questions....should we caulk the trim or not, what is the purpose? and what is the best way to get a clean line (the walls have already been painted), use tape (had bad experiences with bleeding paint with tape), use a shield, or just trust my shaky hand?
Any advice would be sooooo appreciated.
