Moulding

Moulding

Moulding have adorned homes and public buildings for many hundreds of years. On one level, mouldings serve a useful purpose by connecting the different elements of building such as wall surfaces to flooring, and door and window openings. Early plaster often cracked where the ceilings met the wall, making crown and cornice mouldings a useful decoration.

Our product line features wood mouldings in a variety of species including

  • Pine
  • Douglas Fir
  • MDF
  • OAK
  • Poplar
  • Red Wood

Types of Moulding

BASES serve as the finishing cover as the wall joins the floor. Many of the panel mouldings will also make two-piece baseboard ap-plications. Baseboards can also be inverted and paired with cornice mouldings to form larger crown details.

CASINGS are employed as trim elements around doors and win-dows. In addition, they are often used as larger chair rails or linear banding around a room.

CHAIR RAILS are usually applied to a wall horizontally, approxi-mately 30 to 40 inches parallel to the floor. Traditionally found in dining rooms, they protect walls from sliding furniture. Chair rails are also used as panel mouldings to trim the tops of panels on walls or ceilings, and provide a “wainscot” appearance. They can be paired with casings with backbands to form larger chair rails.

CROWN AND CORNER MOULDINGS are applied where the wall joins the ceiling. They are used to add more interest and design depth to a room. Cornice mouldings themselves can be enhanced by adding baseboards, casings, chair rails, lineal moulding, or panel moulding when used in larger rooms with high ceilings. These large combination details are a creative method for adding stronger and more noticeable design elements in large spaces.

BACKBANDS are applied on all doors and windows, together or separately, or as a simple touch to a well designed room. Primarily utilized to add more overall width and depth on the outer edge of casings, they also serve as a transition element between
casings and wainscot details.

DOOR HEADER AND TOP CAP is found above doors and windows and serves as a pediment above these openings. They run hori-zontally on top of mitered casings to give height to the opening or at the head jamb of an opening with casing. Door headers can be used in fireplace applications as wide casings or a base.

FLEXIBLE RESIN MOULDINGS can accommodate convex, concave and various other design requirements such as a custom crown for a curved wall. Flexible resin mouldings can accommodate shapes such as eyebrow, oval, half-round and elliptical, providing a simple solution for finished curved openings.

LINEAL MOULDINGS are used with chair rails, crowns, friezes and panels on ceilings or walls.

PANEL MOULDINGS are used to form panels on ceilings and walls and enhance cornice applications. In addition, they can also be used as finer chair rails or with baseboard caps to form two-piece baseboards.
