In starting my own business and have been plastering for 14 years but I've always worked for other people aN never had to price the work. Can anyone tell me how to price a job by metre squared

Yes you measure and multiply the m2 by the amount you want per m2.

Room is 2.8m wide by 1.8m so if I multiply those together I can get the area of the ceiling and if I measure one of the walk and multiply it by the walk height I can get the area of that wall and then cause I know the opposite wall is the same I multiply by 2 and same for other walls, would that be correct or is there a better faster

method

14 years and your asking that pmsl

Can't need it for development of business plan, like I can only guess doing by day rate and that's not good enough need to be exact on method of pricing,

AGAIN NOT LOOKING FOR A f**k**g PRICE LIST, I WANT TO KNOW WHAT METHOD FOR MEASURING UP A JOB IS, I.E, HOW TO MEASURE UP ALL SURFACE TO BE PLASTERED OTHER THAN MEASURING EVERY WALL TO GET METRE SQUARED, ANYONE ANSWERING TO THIS PLEASE READ ALL OLDER POST BEFORE THROWING IN YOUR TWO CENTS

AGAIN if you have been plastering 14years unless you are thick as pig s**t you would know.

It really isn't difficult

Know your metre rate and buy a digital laser measure. They calculate the area and are very quick and the better ones are accurate. Our hire a QS.

If you don't know the basics of measuring up after 14 yrs,you boss must have been robbing you blind. Oh boss I've done 100 m2 this week,No you haven't its 75m2

You are chatting absolute s**t to be honest!

Unless your doing massive areas it takes 1 minute max per room.

If your doing big areas common sense would say buy something that does it for you.

You mention a business development plan... You only need one of these if your looking for big funding to be a big contractor and to be honest and this is constructive criticism if you can't work out the quick way of measuring areas your business plan is nowhere near ready!

Thank you but I know my rate, and I've seen people measuring the square metre of the floor of a house and pricing like that but that doesn't seem to taking account of the walls, I'm looking for a quick mathematical way of measuring up total surface to be plastered in a house including ceiling with one calculation, instead of measuring the area of the floor to get the ceiling area by m2 and then the same with the walls, do you know of any other method cause doing the way I just said takes ages

How much is your mortgage/ rent, electric, gas, food etc? Take away your missus income minus the kids cost per month and your liesure time hobbies, gambling, cocaine, etc and your left with how much you need to earn which you devide by 4 jobs plus materials minus tips and tax and costs and thats it!

Easy.

Easy.
