The Finishing Touch are now taking a well earned break over the Christmas period from 23 December until Monday 4th January 2016.

During the year the Finishing Touch were proud to be contracted to supply their quality, lightweight, decorative mouldings to a property designed by renowned, award winning Architect Phillip Mannerheim . Designed in the French provincial style the stunning two storey, sixty square home features a distinguished exterior due to the addition of the decorative architectural mouldings . A grand statement is made with a large keystone over the balcony whilst windows are highly decorated with French provincial window architraves, feature window blocks either side of the windows and window sill mouldings. Parapet mouldings between the first and second floor with stringer mouldings 400ml beneath delineate the two storeys, whilst eave parapet mouldings give a handsome finish.

Another large project completed during the year was for the supply of decorative mouldings for ten homes built by a substantial building group. Located in a number of Melbourne suburbs the two storey, 35 to 45 square homes boast a unique style created in part with the addition of the lightweight decorative mouldings –

A commercial apartment building in iconic St. Kilda at 16 storeys high, required 270 metres in total of large parapet mouldings measuring 670mm x 600mm, on two levels. Extending around the perimeter of the building, 135 metres of parapets were installed per level by the Finishing Touch.

The Finishing Touch have been busy completing projects before Christmas. They recently finished a project on 16th December to install decorative mouldings on a two storey French Provincial home of fifty squares in Favisham Court, Canterbury. Surrounding the full perimeter of the house are lightweight eave mouldings, sized 360mm x 200mm with parapet mouldings between the upper and lower floors, also around the full perimeter of the house. All the windows are finished with window architraves and window sills.

 

Decorative mouldings were also installed last week on a home in Loxley Court, East Doncaster. This is a major renovation on the two storey home, originally built in the 1960s/70s era, which has now been remodelled into a post-modern home. The Decorative mouldings chosen to achieve this look are eave mouldings, large parapet mouldings over the central porch front entrance, smaller parapet mouldings between the upper and lower storeys, window architraves for all the windows with matching window sills and quoinings.

 

A forty square modern home at Ruby Place, Donvale, consists of one storey with a basement that includes the garage. Under gutter mouldings, sized 70mm x 70mm and eave mouldings, sized 250mm x 210mm around the perimeter of the house, window architraves with matching sills on all windows and large flatband mouldings above the garage/ basement area, sized at 250mm x 25mm have been installed. Specially created for the entrance are flatband mouldings for planter boxes, which sit either side of the entrance. These measure 5 metres long x 1200mm high and are an integral part of the entrance.

You can see the incredible difference the decorative mouldings make to the façade, transforming a large, plain building into an eye catching, stylized building that greatly resembles a European palace. Note the splendid effect the tall columns with corinthian capitals have on the style of the building.

Finding a supplier capable of producing this large number of decorative mouldings within the timeline of the build and to the quality required by such a striking building could be a difficult task. But with The Finishing Touch contracted to supply, the builder could rest assured that high quality, lightweight, external mouldings would be delivered on time and to a very high standard of manufacture. Added to that is the advantage of installing lightweight mouldings, with this quantity of decorative mouldings it would be a nightmare installing the heavier style of moulding. The Finishing Touch have their own team of certified installers, who offer a 7 year warranty and use a proprietary render patch system, which virtually eliminates any signs of joins.

Your next build may not be quite this splendid but you can certainly get an idea of how stylish and grand your next house can look with the addition of The Finishing Touch lightweight decorative mouldings.
