    Default polyurethane (plastic) cornice


    Was fitting some of this cornice and noticed a difference in the thickness of the profiles of each length, even from the same box. Anyone else experienced this.

    Is that the Persimmon site ,DMC? Whatever you do, don't use fast set to stick it! I mAde that mistake once, the coving came down after six months (spotless clean) and the filler was all left on the ceiling/ walls
