Elstree Coving Installation (WD6): If the harsh lines between ceiling and wall surfaces are something you hate you might want to consider softening them by the use of decorative mouldings or coving. Some would argue that coving was a design fad of the eighties and is not really suitable for modern homes in Elstree, others might disagree. Fashion trends, however, should not dictate whether you have coving put up in your property or not, that should be solely down to personal choice alone. You will simply have to choose whether you want smooth, classic transitions or stark, contemporary lines.

Plaster Coving Installation Elstree
Plaster coving is a traditional method of decorative moulding. It requires two people with experience and a high level of expertise to install correctly. Plaster coving is one of the oldest ways to decorate walls in Elstree. It is made from lime and gypsum that are consolidated with hessian fibre. Once dried, this material hardens into a smooth, solid stone. This material is often used to install ceiling roses and coving.
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.
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 Elstree.
Polyurethane Coving Elstree
