Concrete Masonry Unit with Dentil Crown Molding

Masonry Unit Wall Construction With Dentils on Crown Molding

This project used Concrete Masonry Units (CMUs) for the wall construction, and added architectural features to it using styrofoam crown moldings. The designer went a step further by adding dentils to the crown molding, which must be applied piece by piece but give an overall different look in the end.
The mid-wall molding is craftily cut to allow the downspout through it instead of around the band.

Using a different color exterior paint for the crown moldings and mid-wall molding would have gone a long way towards making the molding stand out from the sandstone CMU.
