Hi,

I'm looking for a price for someone to replace a collapsing lath and plaster ceiling in one room (listed building so it needs to be replaced not boarded over).

Room is 4.6m x 3.1 (about 2m stud).

To keep the price reasonable I can remove all the old lath and plaster if necessary - please mention if price includes me or you taking the old ceiling out.


Thanks

Why are you removing the ceiling to replace with the same? cant you leave the laths up? what about collecting all the ceiling crushing it up and remixing it then applying it?

I didn't realise you could recycle the plaster and/or reuse the laths... suits me if that's the best way of doing it (I know nothing about plastering as you may guess).

Ahh, I didn't realise that was the company name, thanks for the clarification. Will give them a shout.

Other suggestions welcome as I'd like to get a couple of prices.

Thanks again

agree with you twitcher,pulled more than enough ceilings down over the years, try to avoid pulling laths off a4c until a plasterer arrives .
