WOOD MOLDING ALTERNATIVE.
While wood continues to be a popular material of choice for exterior architectural details, its vulnerabilities present a big question mark in terms of its longevity and sustainability.
From the very moment that a coat of paint is applied over wood, its ability to breathe is blocked. Being an organic species, this will eventually lead to various issues from constant maintenance, rotting, warping and splitting to name a few.
Decision makers who choose not to use wood typically look at composite products or inorganic solutions.
Mouldex Mouldings have become a viable alternative, erasing the problems normally associated with wood versions.
INORGANIC IS BETTER.
Our exterior composite mouldings are manufactured using completely inorganic raw materials. This means that they do not need to breathe in order to maintain their appearance. This also makes them more resistant to water, fungi and insects.
WHO HAS TIME FOR MAINTENANCE?
Mouldex Mouldings are virtually maintenance free. While wood generally needs to be scraped and re-finished every couple of years, our products are able to hold up exceptionally well. The only consideration of re-painting would be when you decide to change your exterior colour scheme.
COME IN ONE PIECE. STAY AS ONE PIECE.
Achieving a detailed profile in wood as one piece is difficult. More often than not, pieces are layered and nailed together and then caulked at the seams. In the future, these will most certainly split apart due to environmental shifts in weather and temperature. Our technology allows us to mouldings up to 48” in height and 32” in depth as a single piece.
SIMPLER AND FASTER INSTALLATION.
Returning back to the point of using nails to install wood, our composite mouldings do not require nails. Instead, they are attached to walls using an adhesive. This eliminates the need to puncture and patch holes which not only results in quicker installation times but a consistent finish too.
