Does your home have grand columns or sweeping bay windows? What about curved entryways or spiral staircases? Many of these design elements are common among houses that have an elite appearance inside and out. They are generally complimented by the fine details of crown moulding, by drawing the eye to the artistic lines of the home. However, regular crown moulding can be a challenge to fit around curved corners, or spiraling staircases. This is why flexible moulding has become an important product in the home construction industry. VolterraFlex flexible moulding was created to solve a challenge within the architectural industry of including the gorgeous accents of crown moulding around features which were not perfectly straight. The invention of flex moulding made it possible to complete the look without forcing craftsmen to make dozens of small cuts in regular moulding and piecing them together to form the curve. Flex moulding is a convenient and cost effective way of getting the look you want with minimal tools needed.

Moulding by The Foot

Whether your home features grand arches or you simply want to create a unique artistic pattern on your ceiling, flex moulding is an option that allows for creativity. Buyers typically purchase flex moulding by the foot. To install, simply cut the size needed and install exactly as you would hardwood moulding. Flex moulding bends to accommodate radius walls and curved windows and doors and is available to match any hardwood moulding profile Volterra produces.

Installing Flex Moulding

Due to its flexibility, you should be sure to attach your flex moulding with adhesive and finish nails and close enough together to keep the moulding from pulling away from the wall at the curves. Around tight corners, this may require some extra care. Volterra Architectural Products features many options in VolterraFlex for homes with difficult contours.
