Wainscoting FAQ

What is MDF?
MDF is Medium Density Fiberboard, which is composed of sawdust, and a specially formulated resin (glue) mixed together. This product is then compressed in several stages, thus giving a finished product. MDF has become very popular in the trim carpentry, furniture, and kitchen industries.

What is a primed finish?
Primed finish or priming refers to the preparation stage of the moldings. All of our MDF products are required to be primed/painted with an industry standard sealer that is referred to as primer. This sealer/primer penetrates and seals the MDF so that the finish coat of paint is applied with ease. Deco moldings guarantees that every piece of molding is primed and ready for a finish coat of paint, an enormous time saver over solid wood trims.

Can I purchase just the components only?
Yes or course, refer here

Do wood components have to be primed before painting?
Yes, all MDF and wood products as suggested above, should be primed. This is a task that is already completed when you purchase DecoTrim.

Does your DecoTrim shrink?
All MDF moldings that are supplied shrink on a minimal basis. For every 16 feet of molding installed (1 piece) a shrinkage factor of 1/16" occurs.

How does one alleviate the problem of shrinkage?
The problem of shrinkage is alleviated in the installation process. At Deco moldings, we use a specifically formulated MDF glue that when used, it forms a high bonding adhesion that virtually eliminates shrinkage. Along with this glue, an installation process of pinning with brad nails every 8" on 45-degree angles also enhances the probability of a proper installation.

Can I glue your trim?
For the best results, we would highly recommend that the choice of installation method be the use of brad nails AND construction adhesive or dap. These brad nails would require the use of a brad nailer gun and an air compressor. (Please go to our page called Installation tips for further details).

How do I cut angles on the stiles (risers) as required for stair cases?
Not a problem if we are doing the install. If you are experienced wood worker, we can supply you with a router bit so that you can cut your own angles. We also offer custom cut pieces if requested. Please allow 3 to 5 days for this service.

How do you suggest I layout the stiles around electric baseboard heaters?

Here is one way of doing it, a picture ready is worth a thousand words. If you have allot of baseboards to work with we suggest that you order a few extra lower rails (PW-8) and the router bit to customize the stiles on site easily.

Can the average homeowner install trim?
We recommend that the average homeowner will need to have the cornice moldings installed. If the average homeowner has a certain level of experience in the installation of cornice moldings as well as the proper tools, then they may attempt to try the installation themselves. Deco moldings can install your moldings using our professional team of installers.

How long does the installation take?
Under normal circumstances, just one day. We typically need 1-2 week lead-time.

Do you offer any warranty?
Yes, our installation is guaranteed for one year.

Can you design a custom trim for us?
Yes if the quantity is sufficient, just contact our staff for details.
