Painting and Decoration
Finishes applied to cornice surfaces can have a significant effect on the perceived quality of the installation, particularly where critical lighting conditions exist.
- Matt finishes minimise imperfection visibility
- Semi-gloss and gloss finishes highlight imperfections
- Light colours are less likely to show imperfections
Gyprock recommends paint systems consisting of one coat of a plasterboard sealer followed by two coats of finishing paint. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for application and recoating.
Gyprock recommend decoration in line with Master Painters Australia.
