The perfect moulding can complete a project and make just the right statement. At the same time, a poor moulding can ruin many hours of work in very short order.
With so much riding on it, we add a lot of quality control into the day to day millwork operation. Truthfully it all starts with proper selection of the hardwood as it relates to the moulding profile and final application. Some hardwood species do better on interior jobs and some are better for exteriors. Certainly a lot depends on the natural resistance to the elements inherent to a species, but the texture and grain properties can play an even bigger role. When our customers come to us for millwork projects, our staff starts with gaining an understanding of the final project and we work with you to identify the best species, appropriate moulding profiles, and ideal finish if you so desire.
Choosing the right moulding profile is a major step. Maybe you are trying to replicate an historical profile for a restoration project, or perhaps this is a new build. Whether or not that crown needs an astragal and cove or a bullnose flanked by fillets and accompanying quirk beads is something that our staff can help you determine. Additionally we will let you know how those fine details will hold up with the wood species of choice.
