INSTALLATION

With a fine toothed saw or hacksaw, this will ensure a clean edge without damaging the product (see Installation Guide for further information).
Our mouldings are suitable for D.I.Y. application.
For professional installation, please contact our office for recommended fitters.
We recommend our special adhesive product, specifically designed for use with the Bovelacci mouldings, which is both an adhesive and a filler.
Adhesive sets within 10 – 20 minutes, will set and dry within 24 hours.
The adhesive can be used on most surfaces.
Cornice lengths are butt jointed, leave a 2-3mm gap filled with adhesive between the two cornice ends, this acts as an expansion joint and prevents cracking. Smooth off these filler joints with sandpaper (120 grit).
