PVC MOULDING ALTERNATIVE.
The use of PVC exterior details can be a viable solution depending on your design but it also presents limitations and drawbacks.
Mouldex Mouldings provides an array of options that will fill the voids left by PVC making it an attractive choice.
COME TOGETHER AS ONE.
PVC mouldings are made through injection which requires the use of moulds. Like wood, their selection is limited to flat and shallow profiles to save on production costs. Achieving a detailed design would have to be done by layering and nailing sections together which will eventually split due to environmental factors. Our process allows us to create any detail and any size in one piece with no seams at a much more economical price point.
PVC IS PLASTIC...
...and it looks like plastic. It fits well in certain situations such as vinyl siding exteriors but if your façade is, for example, brick, you may want to consider our mouldings that are authentic in finish and a genuine fit on any exterior.
EASIER INSTALLATION. BETTER FINISH.
Since our mouldings do not require the use of nails for installation, the final finish will be much more consistent with no holes to patch and will move ahead of your schedule.
DISOBEY THE LAWS OF EXPANSION AND CONTRACTION.
When installing PVC mouldings, consideration for expansion and contraction due to shifts in temperature must be taken into account. Manufacturers recommended leaving a 1/8” gap over 18’ spans which would then be filled with caulking. The will leave a visible seam. Mouldex Mouldings do not expand/contract and are tightly joined together. After a simple joint treatment process, the final finish coat will hide any seam.
