    Hi all

    In the process of re-fitting my kitchen and I've come to the conclusion that
    I'm going to need to get a plasterer in.

    The kitchen is approx 20 x 9 foot, but because it's partly an extension it's
    more like 2 rooms of 10 x 9. There are areas that need making good where the
    plaster has come away from the breeze block,and other areas just need a
    skim.

    New ceilings have been put up in each 'half' of the room and these will need
    a skim too

    I know without actually seeing the kitchen this is a bit 'how long is a
    piece of string' but any ideas on how many days a single plasterer would
    need to make good the whole room.(Room is clear of all cabinets etc)

    Cheers

    Jim

    I had a room in our house which was 20foot x 10 foot, it took him 1
    day to do the ceiling and 1 wall (the 20 foot wall),

    so in your case I wouldn't think it would take more than 2 days, maybe
    2.5 days it there are any tricky bits

    As BB says, it will take best part of a day to do the ceiling and maybe one
    smallish wall.
    Then another day and possible half to finish everything off.

    The going rate varies up&down the country and know one can give you an exact
    figure.
    Suggest you phone around locally and get a few quotes would be the best
    option.
    A ball park figure would be in the region of between £80 to £100 a full wall
    but again this depends on the plasterer and location.
