Were thinking of getting into mono and k rend etc..is there a massive difference in using k rend? That mono is taking over isn't it? We've never done it but seen it done it looks a piece of piss we do sand cement and dashing but getting out of that as its s**t..I know of firms paying between £11-£13 sqm2 which sounds s**t to me that's y we havnt really got into it as of yet..on your own job we could charge between £28-£33 m2 materials and labour is there serious money to be made in it? Just curious
Always good to have another string to your bow mate

Londons dead, but it's December I suppose. Also someone left a comment on my yell.com a/c saying I was racist.
How the hell would that brown bastaard have known that as I refuse to work for them
Hope the racist thing is just a joke mate. But if not that's how easy is these days to destroy the reputation of a business on the internet.
I think there's quite bit of work in London at the moment, but as usual peeps want to get it done same day or latest tomorrow when they ring, when I say next availability is after February the line goes dead.

Nope. Potential customers ring me, I choose whether or not to waste my time looking at their job.If you want bit of advice of how not to ruin a business and someone says they want their collapsed ceiling done ASAP and you tell them I'll pop around in March or April you may find they won't wait. If you tell them "my friend, my friend, if you wait brother I do it for you ten pounds only, you probably have many family for work. ". You'll probably get the ceiling job in April.
That's a free tip

I get it what you are saying, i try to avoid them, b@stard of a customers they are.
I got one of them at the moment (wannabe commercial tenant, haven't even got a lease or anything) was keep asking when we'll be finished with the lot, so just packed up and left the job 2 weeks ago and won't be back for another 2 just to pee her off [emoji1]

Busy year for us. £3.50 m2 skim only in Belfast. The worst it ever was, was £2.50 so good to see it up. Still a good bit off the £4.50 it was 8 years ago tho!!

I think it will be up to £4.50 again. The firm we are with are happy enough to pay £3.50 at the minute so they must be getting better rates than a year ago. It's supply and demand and if the demand keeps going up so will the prices. I don't think you could get paid to much for this game!!

U would struggle to get that over here were getting £4.50m2 skim labour only on massive house we are on but that's direct for builder..most firms around Yorkshire are paying £2.50-£3m2..its taken 5 years to get bk to £3m2..I've heard whispers of nuggets working for £1.80 m2 skim around our parts believe it or not!

Belfast! Biggest shithole on this little island or if you prefer, biggest shithole in the UK lol.

Know quite a few plasterers from Belfast but none have been flat out thou that's probably to do with the fact no one wants to work anymore when all they need to do is shift a few 50 bags to get same as busting your clinks out all day for the same money.

3.50 sounds decent enough for Belfast TBH.

What type wages you pulling in now and what's it been like the last few years for ya.

The last few years have been ok. I make a good enough wage. But my last job I f**k*d up on the price and had hold ups all the time. I hate skimming. I like doing external work. I find it easier. Plus more money at it.
