we installed dry wall over old plaster walls and now there is a 1/2 difference in thickness between the door jams and the drywall. How do we install door molding?

RE: Molding

install a 1/2" board over the door frame to make up the difference. the door frames and wall match you won't need to caulk much.


RE: Molding

Yup these strips are called extension jambs and are easy enough to do!

If you are interested in the details please drop me a line!
