What do you need to know about decorative cornicing and plasterwork?
Decorative cornicing and plasterwork can add a lot of elegance to a room. A company may well specialise in decorative work such as this, and if so it will usually have a selection of patterns that you can choose from on its website. Do not be tempted to jump the gun and ask for a custom design, as this can be very expensive. If you prefer, you could simply have a tradesman duplicate the cornices or plasterwork you already have. Some will offer services to restore cornices or plasterwork, which may be necessary for older or heritage homes.
The cost of your project will depend on a few things, most importantly the size of the room and the amount of materials required. In your quote it is good to make sure you have ordered some spare materials, as cutting cornices to fit certain areas will produce non-reusable waste. Also remember to ask for a price breakdown, as this can highlight jobs that you can do yourself to save money.
Before making a hire it is important to make sure that your tradesman is adequately covered for accidental damage and liabilities. They should be able to provide information on their qualifications as well as previous jobs to help you gauge whether or not they are suitable for your project. It is always a good idea to check customer reviews for each of your choices, as this can show you how easy a certain tradesman is to work with in terms of professionalism and customer satisfaction.
