    Guys,
    hope you can help.
    Just patching up a property that has had some plastering work done. Some of the polystyrene coving needs replacing in areas and I don't want to replace all the stuff that is still up in place.
    I am trying to find out where I can get the stuff that is already up. Its 70 mm and some is 100 mm.
    I have tried the usual diy outlets ie b and q ,home base and wickes but cannot find this stuff.
    Any ideas?
    I have uploaded a pic which is not brill but hopefully it shows the shape etc.
    Many thanks for your help.
    Regards

    My first thought was why on earth have they run it down the wall!

    My second is If it's just the odd dent you can probably fill it with some smooth filler. But if there's a lot and you want a perfect result I'd be tempted to rip it all off and just fill behind to square corners. Ps I'm not a pro.

    Hi John,
    its on the underside of the stairs as you walk down the staircase, hence the angles you see.
    Unfortunately its not this area that needs sorting (it was just easier to photo this section )but another area where the coving has ben removed to allow plastering.
    To be honest its horrible stuff but if I remove it then it will be a major job to replace it all with new.
    I just want to patch it back in .
    Regards
    Rob.
