    Does this look acceptable at all?

    I notice it mostly at night with the downlights off and the side lamps with a strong light on. When the downlights are on it is harder to see.

    Does this look acceptable at all?

    To better honest I am asking for advice as the builder I used got someone he uses to do the plastering and whatever I ask him regarding anything he has done even if it not good he will lie and tell me it's good which has already happened so I just wanted independent advice.

    Does this look acceptable at all?

    Hi All. I am still concerned about the ceiling. I am just sitting here noticing plaster board lines on various places. Hard to get a decent picture but I have attached latest one. What should I do to get rid of plasterboard joint lines?

    The rest is generally okay. I just thought that looked terrible. Thanks for the feedback guys. The whole building works has been a nightmare.

    Estimate on Cost to Plaster a 3 Bed-Semi

    Hi All. I got the place skimmed in the end and all looks okay. There is just one room where half the ceiling was replaced by boarding and skimming over. I painted it after dully drying and have noticed a small crack along the line of the new boarding as well as brownish discolouration. The...

    Hi Brim, I am going to not arguing and do appreciate all the advice. I just don't see the need for people ovetanalysing comments. Yes, I am looking cut costs where I can but that is not unusual. I accept the prices if that is what they are.

    Estimate on Cost to Plaster a 3 Bed-Semi

    Look, I have no idea what your problem is but someone saying they're on a budget does not make them dodgy and likely to run off without paying. Very odd thing to say to someone in my opinion. The warning signs are not there, you are just seeing something does doesn't exist.

    Estimate on Cost to Plaster a 3 Bed-Semi

    Would I need to plasterboard then or could I just get the walls re-skimmed and the ceilings plaster-boarded. Is that possible with walls that may have cracks and is not in good condition? I know that it is difficult without seeing the walls but I assume if possible it would cut the price a bit...

    Estimate on Cost to Plaster a 3 Bed-Semi

    No warning signs in trying to see how much a plastering job would be and having a tight budget. From what I have seen I had estimated prices of around 6-7 k max but I wasn't sure so yes, £10k does sound high. Maybe its not and I will have to accept that. I am not going to run off and not pay...

    Estimate on Cost to Plaster a 3 Bed-Semi

    Not tyre kicking. I have asked for quotes. One of the builders quotes £6950 but the rest of his quote was vastly overpriced so I don't trust that part of either. The other builder just came and would oddly would only give a quote for all the jobs I asked for and wouldn't itemise how much each...

    Estimate on Cost to Plaster a 3 Bed-Semi

    £10k to plasterboard and skim? Sounds a bit expensive. We are doing a rewire beforehand. Happy with normal plasterboard and no insulation of ceiling if is big difference in cost.

    Estimate on Cost to Plaster a 3 Bed-Semi

    Hi, I have been looking everywhere online but am struggling to find prices for work that I need done. I am buying a 3 bed-semi in Greater London and the walls and ceilings all need boarding and plastering. The walls are covered with wallpaper but you can hear and feel that the plaster is not...
