Key Points by Moulding Type
1. Plaster - Catalog #130
Three common misconceptions of plaster mouldings are:
- It is Expensive.
- It is hard to install.
- Plaster is Heavy.
- Plaster mouldings provide
wonderful detail and size at a fraction of the cost
of what a comparable style and size wood moulding
- All of our mouldings are reinforced
and can be installed utilizing standard woodworking
methods (see additional FAQ for details)
- Much of the weight in plaster is water, which evaporates
during curing. Further, most crowns/cornices are cast
with a void in the 90-degree which significantly reduces
2. Composition - Catalog #124
Our composition mouldings are designed for custom woodwork
projects. These composites are onlay designs intended
to be applied onto a woodwork product. The typical
length of these mouldings is 12 inches. Our composition
mouldings are very finely detailed and once finished
look hand carved. Many high end furniture companies
and custom woodwork companies utilize these beautiful
designs because of the rich detail that these composite
mouldings provide at a fraction of the cost of what
hand carved mouldings would cost.
3. Mon Reale - White River Brand
The Mon Reale line of mouldings are wood mouldings with
machine applied composite. While not as detailed as
the plaster or composite mouldings, Mon Reale provides
a high degree of detail at a lower price point.
4. Embossed - White River Brand
Wood mouldings where the design is embellished using heat
and pressure. Embossed mouldings look wonderful with
staining. Care must be taken with paint as the design
may be "filled in" by paint.
5. Smooth - White River Brand
Mouldings with classic profiles but no ornamentation.
6. MDF - White River Brand
Density Fiberboard - both plain and
embossed (very affordable)
