Harlow Coving Installation (CM20): Softening the even, hard lines that exist where ceilings meet walls is a design choice that might suit you. This can be achieved by the use of decorative mouldings and coving. Styles change over the years and the use of coving in interior design is a prime example, one year it is in, the next it is out, yet homes in Harlow continue to be embellished with this useful feature. To fit or not to fit coving, that is the question, and this of course should be entirely down to personal choice and not down to what is thought to be the current fashion. Would you prefer sharp, contemporary lines between your ceilings and walls or smooth, classic transitions?
What is Coving? - Coving is an architectural term, signifying a curved, concave material which is used to cover and soften the angles where walls meet ceilings within a building. You can obtain ornamental mouldings and coving made out of PVC, duropolymer, plastic, gyproc, plaster, MDF, hardened polyurethane, solid wood and expanded polystyrene.
Along with the wide range of materials comes a jaw-dropping array of designs and shapes such as art deco, cyma recta, cavetto, ovolo, egg and dart, Edwardian, dentil, step, Victorian and ogee (or cyma reversa).
If this all seems a bit challenging to you, there is help at hand. You shouldn't proceed with an assignment like this without seeking the advice of a professional Harlow coving fitter. You obviously want to get the best quality coved finish on your Harlow home, and getting expert help will put you on the right road.
Your Harlow coving installation specialist should be just as capable of doing the refurbishment and repair of coving, as they are with new coving projects. While mouldings and coving last for quite some time, when installed properly, from time to time they'll need a bit of attention. This could be required for corbels, ceiling roses, dado corners, coving, cornices, picture rails, plaques, panel mouldings, fire surrounds or dado rails.
Although coving work is sometimes done by specialist coving installers in Harlow, it is more often carried out by plasterers or joiners (in the case of wooden mouldings). Before you hire anybody, make sure they are proficient at work like this. This is unquestionably painstaking work and hiring someone who'll apply the required level of care and diligence is advisable.
When the quotations come in, it might be an error in judgment to instantly go for the cheapest coving fitter, without considering all the available options. I am not saying that going for the cheap estimate will necessarily result in poor workmanship, you just need to be mindful of who you choose. You want your coving to look gorgeous once it is in place, so choosing the right person for the job should be your top priority.
There are multiple strategies that you could try when you are on the lookout for coving fitters or plasterers in Harlow, you could look in the local directories or newspapers, you could look on Social Media such as Facebook or Instagram, you can try one of the trade review websites such as My Builder or Rated People or you could go to the Federation of Master Builders website and do a search for vetted and approved local plasterers.
