5 Signs Your Home Mouldings Need to be Replaced

April 06, 2021

Home mouldings in Toronto can give your home a modern or a traditional look. While they might only add aesthetic value to one’s home, these parts of a home are noticeably eye-catching for many homebuyers, and they can either make or break a deal. If you’ve been contemplating whether to replace the mouldings or not, here are five signs that indicate that they need to be replaced soon.

Signs that your home mouldings in Toronto need replacements

Been in use for years

On an average, mouldings in Toronto have a lifespan of 20-35 years. However, those that have been around for more than 15 years without proper varnishing or aren't composites might start to rot, especially if the property hasn't been cleaned for a long time.

Suffered water damages

Water can cause wood to bloat and accelerate the rotting of wood mouldings in Toronto. Any wood mouldings that have suffered water damage have a reduced lifespan. It’s imperative to replace such mouldings as soon as possible not only to maintain your property’s aesthetic but also to avoid further damages.

Moulds with dents and scratches

The natural surface of your mouldings in Toronto could have had their paint scratched off or even have dents. While this may not affect its lifespan and capability significantly, you might want to consider replacing them to maintain the ambience of your interiors. Tamarack Lumber offers affordable retail-grade materials suitable for immediate replacement of damaged sections of mouldings.

Repeated patch-up and repair work

If you've successfully repaired your mouldings and repainted them to cover up the dents and scratches, it might have been enough for the time being. However, if you’re remodelling or selling your property, these damaged mouldings need to go. It’s best to find replacements from a reliable supplier.

Planning to sell your property

Remodeling will always require a new set of mouldings to adhere to a common theme across every single aspect of the property. If you're selling off your property and want the highest market value possible, make sure you replace the mouldings to add more value.
