Gypframe sound insulating bars
Gypframe-Sound-Insulating-Bars.jpg

Hi guys I've used these quiet a bit over the years but never on site price as there normally already done for me to board.
Now it's a block of flats I'm doing and they told me the price is £1.10p per m2 of this, there's only 85m2 on each flat,just ceilings 400 centres.i know this should really be priced in lineal metres but that's how they have priced it. Sounds way too cheap to me, any of you guys know what prices should be on this, plus can only do 2 flats at a time so can't run through them all cheers

Cheers bobspread,Yeah I've done lots of it but never on site prices always done 400 centres and double sound board, I was just wondering if anyone knew the price, because there's no money in £1.10 a m2

Am guessing 2 flats a day is feasable at least measure ,mark out ,cut and stack each room then up on stilts for fixing. get prepped and order going maybe have time prep 3rd ready for next day.
have no idea of acessability etc only you know that ,but as in all things if you get yer system right im sure moneys ok . have a good run at it and if it dont make the money you want pass it up.

Yeah my gang has done plenty of it over years but never been told a price, it's very easy to set out and throw up. We are use to been on price every day so we are fast at what ever we do but just wondered if anyone knew the site prices cheers mate [emoji106]

If you can get to it there's gud money to be made try asking guy for a extra 50p as like u say you can only get to 2 flats..some poor spreads only get £1.50m2 to board

To be fair the board and skim are not too bad on prices, just badly organised cheers guys

The site we were on everyone was on day rate but it didnt mean you had to be there all day everyday we were renovating houses into small flats for students so wasnt just doin plastering. It was better to work on day rate as you knew what you were getting at the end of every week. I understand you could earn more in 3 hours than a day rate but our day rate depending on what we were doin
