    OK – I know this will be a another subjective answer. But here goes….

    Want to smooth all the ‘textured’ ceilings in a 2 bed house – How much (roughly) is it going to cost?

    Id budget about £100 a ceiling off the top of my head.

    Paid £200 two do the walls and ceiling in a 9’x9′ bathroom recently.

    He had to put a coat of ‘hardcote’ (?) on the celing first as the artex was heavily textured and then do a skim of proper plaster over the top.

    I reckon he would have charged probably £100 – £120 to do just the ceiling.

    so maybe £1.50 to £2 per sq ft?

    Depends, most I’ve had quote for a house I am renovating charge around £18 per square meter for boarding and skimming.

    This doesn’t include chipping off if its needed, and if you just need a skim they seem to charge £6 per square meter.

    If you are boarding it yourself, they are fussy buggers so you may end up paying twice if the edges are at all feathered.

    That was about 10 separate ceilings

    As a time served plasterer,it is a ballache. If you pva/scrape back heavy artex you may be able to neg a better price. TBH I have seen me price not to get it.

    Not heavy artex – more a stippled paint/heavy paint I think.

    Where are you DM?

    £200 a day including materials is what we paid. Everyone quoted about the same. That was for 7 days work though. LOTS of plaster!!!

    £200 a day including materials is a fair price.

    coving or no coving?
    We decided to get some really low profile coving fitted and it looks quite smart – pleased we went for it now

    Probably not worth the trip to the southwest for a job then 🙂

    Any plasterers in the ‘golden triangle’ Gloucester/Cheltenham/Stroud area?
