Urethane architectural millwork is beneficial for two reasons, it is significantly more cost effective and highly durable compared to real wood.


Moulding and Temperature

Temperature changes will cause polyurethane moldings to expand and contract.

​T​o minimize the effects of temperature changes, molding installation instructions and recommendations must be carefully observed.
  1. Square the ends of the moulding.
  2. Determine the amount of moulding coverage required. Allow an additional 1/4″ for every ten feet of length required for contraction.
  3. Apply Nu-Wood Adhesive or a strong construction adhesive along the back of the mouldings at the points which make contact with the building structure.
  4. Use construction adhesive at all joints. Make sure that all joining surfaces are covered with adhesive.
  5. Spring mouldings into place to ensure a tight fit.
  6. Secure moulding to a solid base every 16″ or less.

Nu-Wood Adhesive

Nu-Wood Adhesive should be used with all Nu-Wood Millwork and is strongly suggested for adhering all end cut joints.

The ultra constricting characteristics of our adhesive minimize the seasonal shrinkage common to all millwork. This results in a significant reduction of gapping and the need for additional caulking long after the job is finished.
