High Quality Decorative Mouldings Create A Fine Finish To Enhance A Building

post modern design

Several projects are currently under development for the Finishing Touch, suppliers of high quality decorative mouldings.  Unfortunately, not all suppliers of house mouldings can be relied upon to supply a quality product as the owners of three year old dual occupancy townhouses at Arden Court, Kew discovered. The original moulds were cheap fibreglass and plastic, which warped and fell off the building.  The Finishing Touch have been approached to supply their quality decorative mouldings as replacements for the faulty mouldings for these two storey twenty five square homes.   The mouldings to be supplied are –
Window Architraves
Window Sills

Once the new decorative mouldings have been installed the townhouses will be restored to the original vision for their decorative finish. The owners can rest assured that these mouldings will not warp, shrink or fall off the buildings, as they are made from computer cut high grade EPS polystyrene, triple coated with a multi-part compound then reinforced with a triple coating of sand for maximum strength and durability. If the Finishing Touch’s certified installers are used there is a seven year warranty.

A large commercial project four storeys high over a large allotment in Malvern Road, East Malvern will be completed with the addition of decorative mouldings. The Finishing Touch will supply-

An existing house in Croydon requires decorative mouldings to complete the finish some years after the original build. This post-modern, forty square home will be enhanced with the installation of  Window Architraves and Window sills.


Use Only Quality Architectural Decorative Mouldings To Enhance Buildings, Landscapes and Fencing

Decorative mouldings are most often used to decorate and finish a new build, however they are also very effective for hard landscaping in garden areas.  Exterior mouldings were used to great effect in a garden and pool area at a home in Essendon. Creating a luxurious Mediterranean look with a decorative arch at the edge of the pool featuring a mirror and set between two low stone walls, the arch was further enhanced with decorative mouldings.  Fencing can also be enhanced with the use of decorative mouldings for pier caps, as in the Tannoch Brae Aged Care Facility in St. Albans, which has a feature iron fence with large brick and rendered pillars.  To complete the feature they called on The Finishing touch to supply decorative moulded pier caps for the pillars, creating a classic quality finish.

The quality of The Finishing Touch lightweight exterior mouldings and their ability to last a long time in a pristine condition sets them apart.  There have been many requests to replace exterior mouldings in older homes, as the mouldings crumble and crack, detracting from the appearance and value of the asset.  Even some newly built homes have needed mouldings replaced, as the original supplier provided mouldings of an inferior quality with the result that mouldings come away from the walls within a year or two or the paint chips and flakes off the moulding within a few short years.  The Finishing Touch can supply new exterior mouldings of a high quality within a short timeframe, usually a four week turnaround.  Builders can rely on the Finishing Touch ‘A’ grade product because –
•    Architectural mouldings are made of ‘H’ grade polystyrene, which is one or two grades stronger than ‘M’ grade or ‘S’ grade polystyrenes used by other manufacturers.
•    Architectural mouldings will adhere to your walls better, maintaining strength for a much longer period.
•    Architectural mouldings are pre-primed, ensuring the paint does not chip or flake off within a few years.  This guarantees a durable, long lasting, high quality finish.
•    The Drip Lip system – this ensures the rain dripping from exterior mouldings do not drip down the wall, discolouring the render and wall beneath the mouldings.
•    Certified Installers carry a 7 year warranty on all fixing.
•    The installation team uses a render patch system which virtually eliminates any sign of joins.

Don’t risk a dissatisfied customer due to the quality of the moulds you have chosen for your build.  As a Builder or Owner/Builder you need a mouldings supplier you can rely on for quality, durability and affordability. The Finishing Touch are the supplier of choice offering a superior product, quick turnaround and satisfaction.
