Bendigo House Decorative Mouldings
The finishing Touch have recently manufactured and installed house mouldings to a home in Aitkens Rise, Golden Square in Bendigo. This double storey house of approximately 40 squares is of a post modern design with French Provincial influences. The decorative mouldings create a superb exterior finish to the home. The mouldings were used for arches and keystones as well as stringers around the columning under the arches. Windows have been heavily decorated with French provincial style window architraves, window sills and stringers around the windows and window sills.

Mouldings have been used for centuries to decorate homes and buildings. Originally made from stone, stucco became a popular material and then terracotta. In more recent times render and concrete/cement materials were used. Interior mouldings were made of plaster and before the Victorian era decorative mouldings were made on site by using fingers on the wet plaster. The latest development in decorative mouldings are a lightweight mould made from high grade EPS polystyrene. The Finishing Touch range is manufactured from this lightweight material, which is then triple coated with a multi-part compound and further reinforced with a triple coating of sand for maximum strength and durability. Guaranteed not to warp, shrink or bend this style of moulding can be easily installed, free from the difficulties of traditional rendering and heavy concrete mouldings.
