Taunton Coving Installation (TA1): The traditional way to soften the hard lines between ceilings and walls is by the installation of coving or ornamental mouldings. Whether the use of coving is in or out of fashion these days is hard to figure as it seems to go in and out of favour, however it's still used to adorn many a home in Taunton. 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 the current fashion. Would you prefer sharp, modern lines between your walls and ceilings or rounded, classic transitions?

Offered in a wide range of styles and sizes including ogee step, step, rope, plain, astragal and bead step, duropolymer and polyurethane coving is water resistant, durable, easy to paint, recyclable and versatile.
It is not at all out of the question for you to have a bash at installing the coving yourself. Coving is available to buy at most home improvement stores in the Taunton area, and from a number of moulding companies online. Normally coving can be bought in two or three metre lengths, and if you're lucky you'll be able to purchase the corners ready cut (cutting a coving mitre can be tricky). Make sure that you get a decent coving adhesive and a good quality gap filler. Coving adhesive is available in powder form ready to mix, in a tub already mixed or in cartridges which can be applied with a sealant gun.

Major lead creation sites like My Builder, Checkatrade, Rated People, Bidvine, TrustaTrader or Quotatis, and business directories such as Yelp, Yell, Scoot or Three Best Rated will feature high up on the first page of listings, as will strictly pay per click (PPC) adverts (normally the four top results).
