Step 1: Preparation
1. Measure and mark the desired length of the PVC trim & moulding pieces, allowing for any necessary adjustments or corners.

2. Use a miter saw or circular saw to make precise cuts at the marked locations. Ensure that the cuts are clean and accurate for a proper fit.

3. Sand the edges of the cut pieces with sandpaper to create smooth surfaces.

Step 2: Installation
1. Begin the installation at a corner or edge of the area, depending on your specific project requirements.

2. Apply a bead of adhesive or PVC trim adhesive along the backside of the PVC trim & moulding piece.

3. Press the PVC trim & moulding firmly against the surface, ensuring it aligns with the desired position and level.

4. Use a level to check the alignment and make any necessary adjustments.

5. Secure the PVC trim & moulding in place using nails or screws, if desired. Ensure they are countersunk for a flush finish.

6. Repeat the process for each PVC trim & moulding piece, following the marked measurements and maintaining proper alignment.
