Frequently Asked Questions
It is very difficult to give a generic cost for coving but as a rule of thumb an average size room using any cornice from the “Medium” size range will cost € 350.00 and the more rooms that need to be done the less the cost per room will be.
It is very important to get the size of the cornice you intend to use just right as it will certainly have an effect on the appearance of the finished product. In general we would go with the following:
- In rooms with ceilings up to 2.5m high (or 8′ 2 “) we would recommend using a style from our ‘Small’ range.
- In rooms with ceilings between 2.5 and 2.8m (or 9′ 2″) we recommend using a style from our ‘Medium’ range.
- In rooms with ceilings between 2.8m (or 9’2”) and 3.5m (or 11’5″) we recommend using a style from our ‘Large’ range.
- In rooms with ceilings above 3.5m (or 11’5″) we recommend using a style from our ‘Extra Large Range’.
Care should be taken that all light fittings, intruder alarms, door bells etc are below the level the cornice will come to. This measurement can be found as the D which stands for drop on the particular cornice you have chosen for your home.
Unfortunately there is a lot of dust, made worse by the fact that we scrape off the paint where the cornice sits on the wall and ceiling. While this process does add to the dust created on the job, it is required to ensure the cornice bonds firmly and will stay in place for generations. We do make a big effort to clean up the work space and leave it as we found it.

Reproduction and plaster restoration are a key part of our business and it is safe to say that there is no moulding that cannot be identically reproduced. The complexity of the moulding you wish to reproduce will determine the method used and the time it will take. Take a look at the Restoration page on our website and see the wonderful work that can be reproduced using a combination of age old methods, modern materials and time.
