FLEXIBLE MOULDINGS

Do you have a wall you need to wrap moulding around?  Flex Moulding has the appearance of real wood, made of resin material. It can be cut, sanded, shaped and finished like wood. Moisture and insect proof, withstand heat and cold temperatures. Heavy stains can be used, as well as most paints. It is not necessary to prime our flex moulding.

WALL SYSTEMS

We have several wainscot systems available in many species of woods.  You can choose a tongue and groove system, or go with a traditional chair rail paneling system (you created squares on the wall).

Natural Variations in Appearance

Why doesn't what you bought look like the sample in the showroom? Unlike factory-made, artificial materials, each hardwood board has a unique life story. During the approximately 60 years it takes for a hardwood to mature, each tree develops a one-of-a-kind grain pattern and texture.

Natural hardwood products are never as uniform as plastic laminate or wallpaper from a catalog. Solid hardwood products, like silks, leather and precious stones, are shaped by natural forces and they may display a variety of character markings. Knots are character marks, telling the story of tree limbs that grew and fell to the forest floor as the tree matured.

Even boards from the same hardwood tree will show significant variation in color. For instance, "younger" wood, closer to the bark (sapwood), will be lighter than that which comes from the central portion. You also can see the effects of the minerals and other essential elements that the trees absorbed as they grew.

Character Markings Glossary

Tree Diagram
  • Knots: Hard, cylindrical regions marking locations of branches that have been encased by later growth of the tree.
  • Mineral streaks: Olive or grayish markings caused by such environmental factors as trace elements in water or soil.
  • Sapwood: The paler-colored wood closer to the bark of the tree.
  • Grain: The directions, size, appearance and quality of wood fibers.
  • Growth ring: Layer of wood added to a tree during a single growing seasonÉmade up of earlywood and latewood.

No two pieces of hardwood are alike. Because of this, your particular item looks like no other in the world...including those in the showroom. However, rest assured that none of the natural markings that characterize hardwood floors, furniture, woodwork, and cabinetry affect their durability or structural integrity.

Hardwood In Your Home

Expansion and contraction of wood is perfectly normal during changes in the weather. Wood is a natural material that seeks to be in balance with its surroundings. Hardwoods destined for use in home furnishings are carefully kiln-dried for that purpose, and they will take on or give off moisture with extreme changes in relative humidity. When the air is exceptionally warm and humid, solid hardwoods will absorb moisture and expand. Likewise, with much cooler, drier air, the wood will give off moisture and contract. This is completely natural, and craftsman design fine solid hardwood products to accommodate these changes. Remember that hardwoods are natural materials and they will expand and contract with extreme changes in your home's relative humidity.
