Examples of Detailed Cornicing and Plastering

Examples of detailed cornicing and plastering of listed buildings and stately homes in Cornwall and around the UK,  including cornicing the top of an interior wall, door or stairway. The types of cornicing depends on the detail of the decorative moldings and the method of construction. The traditional material for the construction of coving or cornicing is plaster but today polystyrene and polyurethane can be used for repair. 

We tend to use high quality dense plaster for our repairs that require a skilled hand due to the brittle nature of plaster but allow for better detailing. Achieving beautiful and dramatic cornicing together with high quality lime and conventional plastering is only possible due to our highly skill craftsmen. Many years of experience working on the finest listed buildings in the UK make Penquite one of the premium cornicing and plastering contractors in Cornwall.
