Lightweight Mouldings Chosen For Decorative Architectural Mouldings And Other Applications


The Finishing Touch have been busy supplying Mouldings in Melbourne to Builders and Owner/Builders.  House mouldings and window mouldings are supplied as lightweight mouldings, which makes a big difference to cost at installation.  Traditional concrete mouldings need three weeks of scaffolding and much more manpower than the lightweight mouldings supplied by The Finishing Touch which only require two to three days of scaffolding. In Bruarong Crescent, South Frankston three homes adjacent to each other, 12 year’s old all required replacement of the houses’ warped plastic mouldings.  The three Owners decided to have the replacement of the exterior mouldings completed as one project.  They received many quotes and made the decision to go with The Finishing Touch due to the construction of the mouldings, made from high grade EPS polystyrene, triple coated with a multi-part compound then reinforced with a triple coating of sand for maximum strength and durability, which will not crack, shrink, expand or bend. The new parapets and stringer moulds will refresh the homes and provide a quality finish that will last. Quoinings for a house on Nicholson Street, North Balwyn have been custom designed to fit, unlike others on the market which are “one size fits all”.  This double storey has eight corners requiring quoinings. One of the biggest builders in Melbourne are using The Finishing Touch lightweight moulding technique for foam rib formwork being undertaken by Roman Precast Concrete of Dandenong.  A new area of business activity is opening up for The Finishing Touch – commercial office fit-outs.  ICMG are looking at using flat band wall bands manufactured by The Finishing Touch for a store at 45 Collins Place, in the CBD of Melbourne for Ermenegildo Zegna Suits, upmarket Menswear Stores.
