A mansion in Mt Martha is currently being renovated and expanded. The renovation will use twenty round, tapered columns, sized 280mm tapering to 240mm together with Tuscan capitals and Doric bases. The results are sure to be stunning.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Decorative Mouldings for House Builds in January

20190528_103441

January is often a quiet month for builders but orders for Finishing Touch decorative mouldings  are beginning to come through.

A build of a French provincial home in Springvale has a grand entrance indeed, featuring eight round, straight, plain columns 350mm in diameter with Corinthian capitals and Doric bases, with a pair of parapet scrolls atop the house. Other decorative mouldings have helped create a splendid finish, with 72 metres of parapet moulding, model # P8300, size 300mm x 235mm, 110 metres of stringer, model # S1R4, size 90mm x 70mm, 58 metres of parapet moulding, model # P8250, size 250mm x 195mm, 240 metres of window architraves, model # W1100, size 100mm x 45mm and 61 metres of window sills, model # WSR15, size 135mm x 185mm.

A builder has ordered 175 metres of model # P8120, being used as a small parapet mould, size 120mm x 90mm, for three post modern units in Mount Waverley, together with 140 metres of window architrave, model # WP12, size 90mm x 35mm.

The steady demand for pier caps has continued from last year, with an order for two units in Balwyn North of nine Victorian pier caps, size 420 x 420 and eight small French pier caps, size 420mm x 420mm. As the property is a corner block, with each unit facing a different street, the builder has used the different styles of pier cap to create a different look in each street. A New South Wales builder has ordered nine French modern pier caps, size 490mm x 490mm, which have been shipped to North Turramurra in Sydney.

A property in the town of Diggers Rest, Victoria has been finished with 65 metres of a six stepped style of parapet moulding, model # M258S, size 270mm x 200mm.

It is very important that the footings, construction and structure of a house is sound and built to last.

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.
