The forgotten art of style – polystyrene architectural mouldings

With most new builds and renovation projects use rendering to give a modern finish to your home, architectural mouldings can add a welcoming layer of style, class and curb appeal to your home’s exterior.

Architectural mouldings can provide a design focal point by contouring or outlining edges and surfaces such as a cornice, architrave, capital, arch, base, or jamb. The surface of a moulding is modelled with recesses and reliefs, which either maintain a constant profile or are set in rhythmically repeated patterns. 

One of the many benefits of using polystyrene to create interesting architectural profiles is the precision that the hotwire cutting technique brings to detail the shape and the base of the moulding. Its inherent lightweight and moisture resistant nature means that your architectural profiles will be easier to move, safer to handle and highly durable. 

With Foamex expanded polystyrene, you can add a touch of your own personality to the exterior of your home ensuring long term durability with unmatched style and sophistication.
