Creating a particular architectural style, adding flair and a strong statement to your house build is easily achieved with the addition of decorative mouldings. Whether building a French Provincial, Mediterranean, Georgian, Art Deco or Post-Modern home decorative mouldings will help achieve the style and look you desire. The modern type of decorative architectural mouldings are lightweight and easily installed to the finished build, prior to painting. The Finishing Touch have developed a manufacturing process that produces lightweight mouldings of a very high quality in a smooth finish or sandstone finish. The most popular features throughout the history of buildings have been arches and columns and now-a-days, with the application of lightweight mouldings, it is so easy to make a grand design statement.
Arch mouldings are made to follow existing arch lines and can be cut in almost any profile desired. Once a template, with the radius or the span and rise desired for an arch, is supplied it will to be specifically moulded to meet the specifications.
Keystones were originally the pivotal point of an arch, they then became highly decorative as well. They come in a large range of sizes to suit different arch spans, whether over a window or an entrance. Style-wise there is a choice of designs from Grecian style scrolls and flourishes to modern, clean lines.
Column mouldings are made in two halves to wrap around steel or timber posts. They come in four main shapes – round, fluted, square and tapered. Column capitals are also available for columns and come in a variety of styles including Doric, Ornate or Single Doric with Plinth to suit all four main shaped columns. Columns and column capitals come in a range of sizes, with square columns being able to be made to any custom size.
The selection of decorative mouldings from the Finishing Touch range will ensure not only design integrity but a long lasting exterior moulding guaranteed not to warp, shrink or bend once installed.
