Coving & Cornice Top 10 - Advice and Guidance

On this page we would like to give you our: 'Top 10' and 'Best Of'; with a guide and advice, review and comparison. To help in your decision with the different options of coving and cornice. Whether you are having your coving cornice installed professionally or are fitting it yourself.


Professional or DIY installation? Unlike plaster or gyproc this really is not an issue. All that is required is general DIY skills. Take a look at our installation video. Plaster coving cornice tends to need a professional to install. Due to the weight of plaster the coving cornice often needs to be 'pinned' to give support whilst it sets and these pins are then removed afterwards. Polyurethane coving and cornice is lightweight so it is simply a case of applying the adhesive and pressing firmly into position. Cutting the mitres is again simple. Mark the mitre with a pencil and cut in a mitre block. All deliveries come with an instruction guide.

Polystyrene or Plaster? There is a question in the minds of some that polyurethane is not a traditional material such as plaster. However the question is easily turned around. If this had been available before plaster, why would anyone then use plaster? A complete material comparison is on our Coving Cornice Home Page. However, there are so many advantages which make polyurethane the best choice. All coving cornice is supplied with a coat of white primer, so only the top coat of paint is required.
