Yeovil Coving Installation (BA20): A lot of us don't like the harsh lines between ceilings and walls and the traditional way to solve this, is to install coving and fancy mouldings. Fashions change throughout the years and the use of coving in interior design is a prime example, one year it is in, the next it's out, yet homes in Yeovil continue to be adorned with this useful addition. In the end, of course, it should be down to personal preference, whether or not to have coving installed in your property. Do you want stark, modern lines between your ceilings and walls, or smooth, classic transitions? The choice is of course, yours!
What is Coving? - Coving is a moulded material, available in strips, that's used as a decorative element to cover up the sharp, ninety degree angles between the surfaces of a room (walls and ceilings). Amongst the numerous materials from which coving can be made are solid wood, polystyrene, extruded PVC, gyproc, hardened polyurethane, duropolymer, MDF, plaster and plastic.
All these materials and a fabulous choice of shapes and designs as well, like egg and dart, dentil, step, cyma recta, Edwardian, art deco, cavetto, Victorian, ovolo and cyma reversa (or ogee).
All these choices can make it difficult to make up your mind about exactly what it is that you want. Everything will become a lot more straightforward when you get advice from a professional Yeovil coving installer who's in the know. Getting specialist help is the best way to achieve the perfect coved finish for your home in Yeovil.
It's not just with new coving installations that a specialist can help you with. Repairs and restorations are also within their remit. Your decorative mouldings and coving can get a bit tatty over time and may need some TLC to get them looking like new. Maintenance could be needed on dado corners, ceiling roses, fire surrounds, wall plaques, dado rails, picture rails, coving, panel mouldings, corbels or cornices.
There are several kinds of tradesman who'll be able to help with your coving and moulding work in Yeovil. These include specialist coving fitters, plasterers, joiners (where wooden is involved) and painters and decorators. Before you actually employ anyone it really is advisable to check on their level of experience in work like this. So as to get a high quality finish, the coving work must be done carefully and attentively since this is painstaking work.
When the quotations arrive, it would be a huge mistake to automatically go for the cheapest coving installer, without considering all the available options. As the saying goes "pay cheap, pay twice", so you want to avoid sloppy workmanship. You want your coving to look stunning once it is up, so picking the best person for the job is your main concern.

Do-it-Yourself Coving Installation
Some of you out there will be thinking that perhaps you can put up the coving for yourself. There are plenty of online merchants selling coving products and you might even find what you're looking for in a local Yeovil do-it-yourself store. Coving comes in straight lengths of two or three metres and some patterns come with ready cut corners to make life that much easier (cutting a coving mitre can be tricky). You will need a good quality coving adhesive and some appropriate gap filler (unless you are really clever). Coving adhesive is bought in a tub already mixed, as a bag of powder which is mixed with water or in cartridges to apply by sealant gun.
Obviously that there is a lot of info on the internet to show you how to put up coving and cornices, as well as descriptive tutorials and videos to help you complete the work. We recently found this interesting post which may be helpful.

Being both light and simple to install, polyurethane coving is stronger than the cheaper polystyrene option and it looks far better when it is in place.

Many of our visitors have e-mailed some fascinating enquiries that I thought might be relevant to this post. The ones I chose were, "Can coving be painted?" "When was coving first used?"

Searching Online For a Coving Installer
It's much easier to track down a service or tradesman these days than it was once, given that we have the advantages of technology and can quickly just do a search on the internet. Through the use of Ask, Bing, Yahoo or Google you will get instantaneous results that will help with your search, although you must be cautious. One dilemma is often that the page 1 listings offered up by the principal search engines might not exactly be the ones you were needing.
When you are looking to find coving fitters for instance, you will bring up a search engine like Google or Yahoo and enter "coving fitters Yeovil", "coving fitters in Yeovil", "coving fitters near me" or "Yeovil coving fitters". Unfortunately, you'll shortly come to realise that most of the page one listings on search engines like google will either be listings from major lead creation sites such as Checkatrade, Local Heroes, Rated People, TrustaTrader, My Builder or Quotatis, business directories like Free Index, Gumtree, Yelp or Yell, or paid adverts that the search engine has inserted there. Odd job men in Yeovil usually don't have large budgets to move their websites up the positions, consequently you're liable to locate these out of sight further down in the search engine listings maybe on the 2nd or 3rd pages. If you are unable to find anyone acceptable in the search engine results, it is fine to make use of one of the various approved tradesmen portals such as Checkatrade or Rated People, where you can read reviews, check out client feedback and get free quotations.
