Thanks in advanced! just need to know if this is a fair price!

I need a wall replastering it also needs straightening out/bodge job previous owners on the extension! Apparantly it is 10mm out!

The wall is 238cm height 670cm length but a door in that area as well!!!!!

The quote says:-
To unibond wall ready for plastering
To bond wall with conding ready for plastering
To plaster wall

Is this a fair quote? Our previous house was a new build so never had to have any work done so no idea if this is a fair price?

The price I've been quoted is £368.00!

Thanks again!

I'd like to recommend www.mybuilder.com
You advertise your job, ask for quotes, people respond with messages and quotes and they have profiles where previous clients leave positive/negative/neutral feedback as appropriate! Plus, they don't have to know you're female when you advertise the job. skeptical Awesome site.

Thanks ladies I've advertised on the site you've recommended waiting for quotes back ......

When I had bathroom plastered recently (4 walls about 35sq m in total with several large holes to fill) it took 2 plasterers a day at £175 each so total of £350. However that was quite cheap for around here (in London) as they were subcontracted by my builder. Plasterers do generally charge quite a bit - when I had a quote for plastering around a fireplace it varied from £300-£1000!! I'd get another quote to compare - btw 10mm out is minor in my book but then I have a house where no wall is straight!

Try www.ratedpeople.com , similar to mybuilder but you'll get lot more quotes and faster, (at least in South Oxon that is).
