    How long do cornices last?


    How long do cornices tend to last before they need to be replaced? Are some products significantly more durable than others?

    "all Depends on the house which ones you go for, even plasterboard cornices fitted correctly will last as long as any plasterboard ceiling 50+ years , plaster cornices do look great, more choice and styles but are dearer to buy/install and more resilient should you have a water leak from above - Garth’s plastering"

    Cornice can last a long time as long as they are fitted correctly , the best is plaster coving or polystyrene much easier to fit ."
