Drying time ????

Postby spursone » Sun Sep 07, 2008 10:34 am

I have been a decorator for 20 years and have never been asked by a customer to put up coving, but as I'm a very competent tradesman I have no problem is taking on the task. I just would like to know once the coving is up, what sort of drying time am i looking at for the adhesive to go of so I can paint the lid and walls, as I don't want the paint to crack along the adhesive line as it does with caulk when this is still damp. I don't want to get on the job and sit there to long waitng as time is money and I don't want to pass this wasted time onto the customer.

Cheers, Steve.
