Template Instructions

Oval window example
Elliptical Window Example

Ovals, ellipticals and compound radius curves require a template

  • Templates should be made of heavy construction paper, tar paper or house wrap. Make sure that the template follows the contour of the curve exactly. Any imperfections will be duplicated in the moulding.
  • The better the template, the better the moulding. Although the moulding is flexible it cannot be "stretched" to accomodate an incorrect template.
  • Indicate which side of the moulding faces the edge and whether it is the inside or outside edge of the moulding that will follow the line.
  • Indicate if there is a reveal (the molding will be set back from the opening - usually about 1/4")
  • When measuring for length be sure to measure to the outside edge of the moulding and add an additional foot for mitering.
  • Attach a picture of the molding from this site. Indicate which end will be up.
  • Include your name and contact information.
  • Send the template to: Trimster C/o Flex Trim 117 Cedar Lane, Lexington, NC 27292
  • After the template is received we will conact you to review and place the order.

Caution Ovals are shipped with the ends "loose" to allow for adjustment during installation.
