    Is coving messy, particularly for a DIYer?


    Would it generally be a messy process to have coving installed? Is it best to have a professional do so?

    "Coving is installed with adhesive which is a wet mix. A professional should always use protective sheeting etc to cover up in case of mishaps. Installation can be done by a diyer using a coving cutting block."

    "In my experience, it can be a tad messy when filling and cutting etc. it’s not too easy either. If your confident enough to give it ago then why not, otherwise I would get a trades person to come fit them for you so it is done correctly."
