Plaster Coving Installation Bristol
Plaster coving is a traditional method of decorative moulding. It requires two people with experience and a high level of skill to install it properly.
Before installing plaster coving, plan and mark its layout. The length of each piece should match the length of the adjacent wall or ceiling. The length of the coving should be as precise as possible, and each piece should be level. You can then trim the pieces to eliminate gaps. Then, apply a thin layer of adhesive to the join where one piece of coving meets the next. This will ensure a strong bond and prevent cracks in the future. However, the installation of plaster coving is best left to the professionals, and local coving fitters will be able to provide quotes for its installation.
Plaster coving can be used to add aesthetic appeal to corners and the join between the ceiling and wall. It is lightweight and easy to install and is an effective way to hide the thermal expansion of plasterboard. It is also an attractive way to add resale value to a home in Bristol.

What's the Difference Between Coving & Cornice?
A cause of constant bewilderment to people in Bristol, and a question that we are often asked is "What is the difference between coving and cornice?" Essentially the reply is that they are one and the same. If you had to draw a disparity between the two, it is that covings are comparatively simple in their design, while cornices are a lot more ornate. The expression coving was originally used to describe a plain "C" shaped concave moulding that was very fashionable in Bristol in the post-world war period. Cornices, in contrast, are often extremely intricate mouldings that must be cut and put up by a master craftsman in Bristol if they're to be installed correctly.
