Cornice or Coving is a concave or convex ornate moulding that gets installed at intersection internally between the wall and ceiling giving your home an instant new look and feel period or modern elegance. Traditionally cornice was run in situ, many fibrous desgins are now supplied still made of plaster, hessian & wooden laths, although there are some more modern ones made from polystyrene and plastics (these are now deemed to be very Dangrous & a fire risk!, and should be removed) others are paper-wrapped plaster, If your room had the original Plaster Cornice removed, Our Cornices can restore the room's period feel and add value to your home (picture rails and ceiling roses have the same effect). When shopping for coving bear in mind that smaller rooms require a smaller size. buy 10% more than your room size. The rooms corners can be particularly tricky and involve "mitres" - angled that need cutting with a normal wood saw, ideally also using a mitre block.
To put up a section of coving, you'll need "coving adhesive" which come either come ready-mixed or in powder form. Make sure the surfaces of your wall and ceiling are sound by being clean and even, then chalkline guides around the room or drawing a pencil line where the coving is to sit, having checked there are no cables or pipes behind the wall, tap nails partially onto the wall guidelines ready to rest the weight of the Cornice on, check by offering it up. Now use a trowel or scraper to spread the adhesive on the 2 rear edges of the coving. Lift the section up onto the nailed guidelines; now tap nails into the ceiling edge trapping the Cornice to support it & fill using the adhesive (any excess can easily be scrapped & wiped clean with a damp sponge). So just make sure the entire length of the coving makes contact with the wall and ceiling. Use any surplus adhesive to fill any gaps in the corners or on the joints, apply a generous coating; you remove the nails after the adhesive becomes set. If you are fixing coving on an uneven surface you may have to reinforce the hold by screwing Dry wall screws into Cornice. When you're done, go around the room check for any gaps & fill adhesive, then sand the joints and corners using wet or dry abrasive paper 180s or 120s grade. The above should be used as a guild line only, if in doubt, contact us or any professional fitter.
