Approx 60m2, but after being let down yet again will be looking for a spread for all future projects

That old chestnut. Do a really good job this first one that pays pennies then after that there’s loadsssss more well paid work

All freshly drylined straight to board. Is £450 expensive? Had a quote from a local lad of £350 but he can't start it for 3 weeks, he's one of the neatest I've seen

£350 !!? What the actual f**k. Even £450 is a joke.

Lol @ trying to do sqm on a one off lol. Only place for sqm is site where the spreads have regular work and can bang it out. Not a cluttered badly boarded kitchen.

Id want 700 labour for that.

Yes it is for all that bet kitchen needs bonding out.


Wind your neck in buddy, your not interest so leave the thread alone. £450 2 days isn’t that bad, should be more for a weekend and a one off but acceptable all the same.

All sorted now. £400 from a local lad with a decent reputation and hopefully not a gob shite like I can't believe it's not butter
Minds blown. God knows how I’m booked till October with my prices. Good luck

Can't believe you get paid tbh when all you seem to do all day is troll on here
Great ain’t it. I have recently joined here but do agree I’ve been trolling hard.

I guess you get what you pay for? You would have hired the 350 guy if he was available so it confirms you just want the cheapest person who is available to come and do it.

I do a lot of re/skim work where the finish is rough because the customer wrongly assumed that all plasterers are decent and to just get the cheapest one. I’ve built my reputation around quality finish, cleanliness and professionalism and it works very well for me.

You’ve just found a new guy for £400 who can start the job in under 12 hours. Does that not worry you at all?

Not all spreads are stuck up there own arse like you. The lad at 350 is mustard. Not being funny but why would anyone who knows anything pay more than £225a day? Now bore off u creature
Showing your true colours now lol. Because there is many customers who can afford a decent spread. Not all pikeys like you who do the boarding themselves and get a cheap ass spread in.

Get the sandpaper ready you pikey mug

Listen buddy, fall in line or fu ck off, a job was offered decent money, easy work onto board and you’re given the guy a hard time.

It’s good money for a simple job, absolutely no need to spit your dummy out on a good honest thread.

And the reason I work for myself by myself is so I do not have to deal with numpties like you.

I work for myself too but give plenty of work out. Bottom line is I think decent spreads deserve a decent wage. Doing all that 2 hard days on your own for 350 isn’t enough in my opinion.

But whatever, not going to debate with you on everything I say.
