Frequently Asked Questions

ORDERING

What is the difference between your products and others?

The difference is in quality, detail, consistency and final cost. We manufacture our mouldings using advanced machinery and quality material that ensure fine and consistent details that can not be achieved with tools and methods available on the job site. You will save on time and labor that ultimately translate to lower final cost.

Architectural foam shapes such as trims, cornices, sills & bands and column shafts are produced in 8’ lengths.

Do you have architectural foam shapes in stock?

Very minimal as most of what we do is custom ordered.

Do you perform on-site measurements and take-offs?

Yes, in the local greater Tampa Bay area for a $75 service fee.

INSTALLATION

Do you provide installation and repairs?

We do NOT have installation but we can help coordinate with local qualified installers on your behalf.

What other materials will be needed for installation?

    • A miter saw if architectural foam shapes need to be cut
    • A professional foam sealant (i.e. ENERFOAM) used for attaching architectural foam shapes to desired area. The foam expands only enough to generate an effective seal, retaining elasticity as the structure expands and compresses.
    • Once the architectural foam shape is in place, you will need to apply a siliconized acrylic latex caulk (i.e. Sherwin Williams 950A) at the joint between the architectural foam shape and the substrate, and between any joined architectural foam shapes.
    • Paint

Can your architectural foam shapes be painted?

Yes.If you choose to paint you should paint architectural foam shapes with high quality acrylic paint.
