MDF is free from natural defects. This gives it a long product life and means that MDF will not; warp, twist, bow, split, or contain knots, all of which you would find in pine and any other natural wood. This makes MDF the most economical, time saving material for your architrave requirements.

The Benefits of Primed Finishes
Primed finishes are the most popular supplied to the DIY, building and design industries for several reasons:
- Pre-primed mouldings relieves a lot of work, as MDF, being an absorbent material, can require two or more priming coats to seal it properly.
- If primed, mistakes and marks commonly made during installation can be rectified when finishing (unlike a gloss or satin finish, which is almost impossible to ‘touch up’ well and would be wasted).
- Therefore primed window boards are the easiest and most flexible product to install with less risk of permanently damaging the finish.
We recommend a primed finish on window boards and would urge anyone who is thinking otherwise to reconsider.
