Q: In what lengths are the cornices made?
A: Our cornices are made in four standard length sizes. They are 3.0m, 3.6m, 4.2m, 4.8m unless otherwise indicated as on the price list.
Q: How are the cornices installed?
A: Cornices are first cut to length in a mitre box then glued with a plaster adhesive compound called Cornice Cement. If they are a large profile or are being installed onto a painted surface they may also require fixing screws through the cornice into the timber batons above the ceiling. It is best to use a qualified Fibrous Plasterer for this job as cutting & joining the miters & pattern matching can be complicated.
Q: How are Ceiling Roses installed?
A: For larger Roses & fixing to a painted surface, they will need to be glued & screwed into the timber batons above your ceiling. Smaller Roses (under 400mm in diameter) can be glued using Cornice Cement only if fixing to new plasterboard.
Light fittings must not be attached only to the rose. They must properly fixed to timber batons in your ceiling.
Q: Do you carry stock of all your products or are they only made to order?
A: Although we do our best to keep stock of all cornices, some of our more popular designs do need to be made to order. Manufacture times are usually between 1-3 weeks.
We usually always have stock of Roses, Strips & vents.
Ceiling Panels & arches are made to order only.
Q: Is there a minimum order?
A: There is no minimum order however we do have a $50 sucharge for cornice orders of 4 lengths or less.
Q: What is the waiting time after I place my order
A: This all depends on the cornice that is to be ordered & the amount required. In general though, manufacture time is around 5-7 working days if not in stock.
