The job has been sold, the proper materials delivered and the installation has been completed. Success or failure of the flooring installation comes down to the way the job is finished. The proper use of mouldings (t-moulding, quarter round, base, stair nose, square nose and reducer) and cove base must fit the installation.  

The matching color, size and style of moulding should be ordered at the same time with the flooring materials. Don’t leave this important component as a last minute will-call order.

Likewise, cove base products are available in vinyl, rubber and wrapped materials, along with new flexible mouldings for custom installations. A happy client upon job completion will mean a check rather than higher expenses due to a callback.

Following are some new mouldings and cove base products available in the marketplace. Use the Reader Inquiry Card to get more information about these products.
