Standard Design Or Custom Made Decorative Mouldings By The Finishing Touch

Currently with several projects under development for post-modern homes in Melbourne, the Finishing Touch is also supplying decorative mouldings to homes in Ballarat and Pakenham. Buildings under development are in Ruby Place, Donvale and Balwyn. The large single storey, fifty squares plus home in Donvale will be finished with full eave mouldings, window architraves, window sills and quoining panels. Tapered shaped column mouldings will be supplied to the other fifty square, two storey, post-modern home in Balwyn. Ten columns 3.3 metres high, each with a 500mm base tapering to 440mm at the top of the column, will be manufactured with the builder undertaking the installation.

A charming two storey, fifty square French Provincial home in Mt. Clear, Ballarat will have picture frame mouldings for all fifteen of the windows supplied and installed by the Finishing Touch, as well as two circular vents 550mm in diameter. A single storey post- modern home in Pakenham of forty squares located at Arlington Avenue will be supplied with fifteen metres of flatband moulding, sized 170mm x 30mm.

An unusual arch span is being custom moulded for a single storey post-modern home in Moonee Ponds.  The special arch span is 1760mm length with a rise of only 30mm.  The Finishing Touch have a good selection of standard sized decorative mouldings available in the most sought after styles but can also custom make mouldings to your specifications if required.  This opens up possibilities for some unique stylisation when building or renovating.

French Provincial Decorative Mouldings For Units and a Three Storey Home

Example of Decorative Mouldings for French Provincial style

A new project supplying decorative mouldings for two units of 36 squares and 34 squares in a post-modern design with French Provincial influences at 25 Pakington Street, Kew has begun. The Finishing Touch are supplying under gutter mouldings, which hide the workings of the guttering with what appears to be a solid construction via a seemingly large moulding. Large French Provincial parapet mouldings over the portico entrance provide further decoration at 300mm in width and to complement them, a smaller version of the same parapet moulding runs parallel at a median level between the ground floor and first floor. Another moulding will be installed between the mould and the fascia board and the wall (the eave) to provide a solid vision as opposed to component parts. French Provincial window architraves are being supplied for the upstairs windows and keystones will be installed above all the windows. Stringers will be used to replicate the look of a capital for columns under the portico. The decorative moulds have been selected and the consignment is being prepared ready for installation.

Window architraves are being supplied to a double storey house with a normal pitch roof of approx. thirty squares in Atwood. Decorative parapet mouldings will also be installed between the ground floor and the first floor.

A project at 4 Glendale Street, Surrey Hills on a three storey house in the French Provincial style has been completed recently by The Finishing Touch. The bottom storey is a multi-car garage. The top of the building has been finished with large French Provincial parapet mouldings 240mm wide, with a smaller version 200mm wide installed lower down at the middle of the building.  Stringer mouldings have been installed 600mm between each parapet and in between these are picture frame mouldings in three horizontal rectangular lines.  The windows have been decorated with French Provincial window architraves and window sills.  The entrance is eye-catching with architraves 250mm wide and upon them 50mm rivets spaced 200mm apart with a large decorative keystone above.

A simulated brick course on a two storey warehouse conversion of forty squares at Emma Street, Collingwood has been achieved using flatband decorative mouldings in the middle of the building around its circumference supplied by The Finishing Touch. The flatband mouldings measure 80mm x 20mm. Stringer mouldings sized 90mm x 70mm decorate the Portico and underneath the portico half square flat columns protrude from the wall. The columns measure 1800mm high x 200mm wide and are decorated with picture frame mouldings, sized 35mm x 25mm.  Further decorative features have been added with decorative mouldings for under the gutters, window architraves and window sills.

The Finishing Touch have also commenced manufacturing decorative mouldings for a three storey French Provincial building, sixty squares in total situated at 4 Glendale Street, Surrey Hills. The living quarters are on the first and second storey of the home with the garage on the ground floor.

Large French Provincial mouldings will be installed at the highest point of the building on the third floor with smaller versions on the second floor and stringer mouldings under both to enhance the decorative finish. Picture frame mouldings will be added in the gap between the stringer and French Provincial mouldings. Columns have been constructed by the builder and the Finishing Touch are supplying capitals and bases for the columns as well as French Provincial window architraves with decorative window sills to suit.  The house will have a grand entrance, surrounded by very large architraves, 250mm wide by 50mm deep, and decorated with 50mm rivet mouldings placed 250mm apart and finished with a French Provincial decorative keystone atop.

A project currently under development is for a fifty square, single storey, large modern home at Wendouree, Ballarat. The home will be enhanced with the addition of decorative mouldings for the chimney, parapets, window architraves and window sills.
