Hadleigh Coving Installation (SS7): Softening the even, harsh lines that exist where walls meet ceilings is a design choice that might suit you. This can be achieved by the use of coving or decorative mouldings. Styles change through the years and the use of coving in interior design is a good example, one year it's in, the next it is out, yet homes in Hadleigh continue to be adorned with this useful feature. To fit or not to fit coving, that is the question, and this of course should be solely down to personal preference and not down to what is thought to be the current fashion. For most of us, it is a fairly black and white choice between sharp, contemporary lines and smooth, classic transitions between their ceilings and walls.

Plaster Coving Hadleigh

Plaster coving is a traditional method of decorative moulding. It requires two people with experience and a high level of skill to install correctly. Plaster coving is one of the oldest ways to decorate walls in Hadleigh. 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 ceiling or wall. 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 coving 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 is a decorative element that is often overlooked, but it can enhance a room's interior design by adding visual appeal. It can hide irregularities in the ceiling, and it can disguise the thermal expansion of plasterboard. Plaster coving can also add resale value to a property, since it highlights attention to detail.

What's the Difference Between Coving and Cornice?

A source of constant bewilderment to people in Hadleigh, and a question that we are frequently asked is "What on earth is the difference between cornice and coving?" The answer that you'll probably not be anticipating, is that they are in essence the same. If you had to draw a distinction between the two, it would be that covings are basically simple in design, whilst cornices are a lot more fancy. Initially, the term coving was used in relation to a plain "C" shaped moulding that was widespread in post-war period in Hadleigh. On the other hand, cornices are usually exceptionally elaborate mouldings, which are challenging to install and require the skills of a master craftsman in Hadleigh.

Plaster Cornice Repair Hadleigh

Without plaster cornice refurbishment, a building's interior aesthetic appearance cannot be fully preserved. Various factors, including general wear and tear, moisture or accidental impact, can cause damage to cornices - the decorative molding that decorates the junction between the ceiling and walls.

Refurbishing a plaster cornice necessitates the skills of a qualified craftsman who can assess the damage accurately and develop a restoration plan that works. To repair a plaster cornice, one must typically clean the affected area, remove any loosened or damaged plaster, and fill the gaps with new plaster. Craftspeople with the required expertise can recreate intricate designs or patterns, ensuring that the repaired cornice matches the original design.
