From Colonial to Victorian, mouldings go a long way to establish the style of a house or office building. These trim treatments generally serve as a transition between floors and walls and other building elements. Today a huge variety of mouldings are available depending on your essential needs as well as your budget.
MDF Moulding, due to its reasonable price point is the mostly commonly used moulding option today. Made from fine wood fibers, MDF provides an extremely smooth surface for painting.
For outdoor use or protection against flooding or water, PVC plastic trim can be a great choice. Another super cool property of PVC is that it can be heated and then bent into any shape such as arched windows.
Polyurethane mouldings are made from a dense foam material that has all the advantages of wood without the disadvantages of rotting, splintering and cracking. Polyurethane lasts longer than MDF moulding, it can be used in both interior and exterior buildings and is very lightweight and easy to install (perfect for DIY projects). Another benefit is it comes pre-primed and ready to be installed.
Plycem moulding (a fibre cement board) is another great option as a replacement for wood. Its resistance to damage caused by moisture and termites as well as its versatility allows an easy smooth installation process and a great choice for any project.
