This forum has members from all over the uk, and the price for any given job will vary from plasterer to plasterer and place to place. Better say where your from.you will get prices from peanuts to £1000s
depends on far too many factors and creates a lot of debates....
Decide how much that newly plastered ceiling is worth t you then get some quotes in and see what the prices are like....
Sounds daft but reality is my prices would be different to the next persons...
Make you right. £200 to £250 is what you want for day rate, any less your under selling yourself and may as well work for a company doing maintenance.Be £150 upwards....for me, it'd be £220.
Polish man might do it for £50 but if he fucks it up, he's not coming back, is he?
I say £180 plus materiels plus 20% and I don't do half days...of course, the customer never gets the materiels, but the way I put it, I pretend to have given him the option....Make you right. £200 to £250 is what you want for day rate, any less your under selling yourself and may as well work for a company doing maintenance.
I'll do the job for £100
I'd say 4 hrs min. Getting materials, prep and set up, skim then tidying up.If its boarded ready to go 2 hours
Well that's more like a company quote. And people forget that's precisely what you are when self employed.£325 with everything sheeted up and coffee supplied by customer
This job would be a doddle. It's already boarded so the room is likely empty. It's board, so no scraping or pva etc. I'd put a sheet down and mix up and go.I'd say 4 hrs min. Getting materials, prep and set up, skim then tidying up.
Obviously one surface more time consuming than consecutive areas.
Then you've got overheads.
