Awareness of the latest trends in decorative mouldings and an ability to select the correct sizing ensures the finished build is on trend, enhanced and balanced. There is a danger that if the wrong sized moulding is installed the look will not be of the quality the build deserves and when the owner re-sells value will be lost.

The Finishing Touch provide top quality professional installers that will get the job right the first time. Beware of inexperienced tradesmen who are not professional moulding installers as the end product may lack quality, with unaligned joins, crooked lines and lack of preparation for paintwork resulting in an uneven paint surface.
