Decorative mouldings for fence caps and pier caps can greatly enhance the appearance of a property. Recently two post-modern units, 25 square metres each, in Bayswater required nine metres of plain fence capping to finish the front fence. In Balwyn North two houses on a dual occupancy corner block, both approx 30 squares each, required custom sized pier caps supplied by the Finishing Touch to complete the build. Nine Victorian pier caps were sized at 620mm x 420mm and nine French pier caps were sized at 420m x 420mm to suit the fence, which was constructed from block work.
