18 Abercrombie St Deepdene close windows

The Finishing Touch have long prided themselves on supplying quality decorative mouldings that last and add value to a build. They have now expanded their range of building products to include render and rendering tools. In line with their core values they have sourced render products from suppliers that have a sound reputation for quality, Macrender and iQuip.

The products now being supplied through The Finishing Touch include MacRender (medium), a medium grade general purpose render for application to stable masonry based surfaces such as clay/concrete bricks and aerated concrete blocks/panels, MacRender HBS, a medium grade high bond strength render for application to demanding surfaces such as painted masonry and expanded polystyrene EIFS panels and MacRender Hi-build, a course grade lightweight render for thick section application.  A high performance polymer additive MacBond latex liquid is also available as well as render accessories such as angles, hawks, trowels and floats from iQuip.

It is very important that the footings, construction and structure of a house is sound and built to last. Finishing the build is just as important in terms of the design and look of the home and how it appears on the streetscape. Architectural, decorative mouldings such as parapet moulds, window architraves and sills provide a basic, handsome finish. To create interest and  glamour to the house additional decorative mouldings, such as columns, arches, corbels, quoinings and keystones, provide pizazz and a sense of style. A good render finish is also important and the quality and lasting properties of both the render and decorative mouldings is imperative to ensure satisfaction for the home owner.
