French Provincial Architectural Mouldings For New Homes Plus Lightweight Mouldings For Older Building

The Eyrie

The Finishing Touch have been commissioned to replace old faulty exterior mouldings with new lightweight mouldings on a fifteen year old building in Elwood.  Situated in Ormond Esplanade the building has a sandstone finish and faces Port Phillip Bay where it is subject to the weathering influences of sun, salt water, wind and rain.  The replacement architectural mouldings of large parapets around the building the Finishing Touch will supply will have a smoother, sharper render style and finish, vastly improving the look of the building and giving the parapets a much longer life.

Requests for quotes on properties in New Gisborne and Ascot Vale are now in the pipe line.  The property in New Gisborne is for a forty square, two storey modern design building after the French Provincial style. The project would involve working directly with the Builders, supplying parapets, window sills, window architraves and arches.  Once the quote is accepted, manufacturing will begin in one month and the house mouldings will be fitted within two months.

The Ascot Vale property is in Ormond Road and is for a new, modern designed house being built in the French Provincial style.  This project will use a large range of decorative architectural mouldings, including parapets, stringers, window architraves, window sills, keystones, pier caps and quoinings. Once the quote is accepted it is estimated it will take three months before the mouldings will be fitted.

All architectural mouldings are taken to the site and installed by certified installers, which carries a 7 year warranty on all installation and fixing. The company’s proprietary render patch system is utilised, virtually eliminating any sign of joins.
