Hello, I know this is a quite ridiculous question that an adult should know the answer to but .... I don't.
What kind of tradesperson should I be contacting to deal with this textured ceiling to make it a normal smooth ceiling. It looks like paper rather than plaster.

Textured and artex ceilings are an abomination and should never have been allowed.
You need a plasterer.

Theres a repeat to the pattern and the join lines mean paper. A decorator will strip it off, but it is quite likely that you will need to replaster it.

What sort of price is it to replaster aceiling?

We had a plastering quote for two ceilings (small/medium rooms) for £230

Thanks everyone! Really helpful.

Artex is an abomination. I just had all the ceilings down in my new home because the artex was what can only be described as "flamboyant" with stalactites and everything, enough to skin you if you went too close.
The plasterer will sand it done then skim right over it. Job done.

A plasterer is what you need. We had five ceilings reboarded and plastered because the artex in our new house was so awful. It cost £600.

I've just checked and it's definitely paper - the 'artex' bit is like anagylipta (sp?). Going to strip it and see what we're left with.
