Cornice or Coving is the concave or convex moulding that runs at top of intersection between the wall and ceiling mostly internally giving your home an injection of period or modern elegance. Traditionally coving is supplied and made of plaster, hessian & wooden laths, although there are modern examples made from polystyrene others paper-wrapped plaster, some are dangerous with regards to Fire risk! If your room had the original Plaster Cornice removed, Our Cornice will 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 pieces of coving that need cutting with any 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 dry, clean and sound, and then create guidelines around the room by marking the walls with a chalk line or drawing a pencil line where the coving is to sit, having checked that 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. Now use a trowel or scraper to spread the adhesive on the strike off back edges of the coving. Lift the section up onto the nailed wall guidelines; now tap nails into the ceiling edge, trapping the top edge of Cornice to support it as the adhesive dries (any excess can easily be wiped off with a damp sponge). 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 can remove the nails when the adhesive becomes set. If you are fixing coving on an uneven surface you may have to reinforce with countersinking screws into wall. When you're done, go around the room filling any gaps with 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.
