Hire the right plasterer
In a nutshell, it is a plasterer’s job to prepare the walls and ceilings of a property for decorating. You can’t slap paint or wallpaper on bare brick, after all. Plasterers typically work with either solid plastering, fibrous plastering or dry lining, depending on the materials they are coating. This kind of work requires both a practised hand and a high level of physical fitness, and so it is usually best left to a professional.
Many plasterers will either complete apprenticeships or college courses to become qualified for the role. Others will complete on-site training as assistant plasterers. Don’t worry - Home Solutions only works with plasterers who are highly experienced and well-recommended by their past customers.
When it comes to hiring a plasterer in London, it is important to remember that prices in the capital are often different from those elsewhere in the UK. Because of this, you should not rely too much on national averages. You should also keep in mind that your own quote will depend on the details of the job that you need doing, such as the size of the area that will be plastered.
Generally speaking, plasterers will usually offer quotes based on the size of a job, rather than offering set prices. This will usually require a visit so that the plasterer can make measurements and examine the surfaces they will be working with.
One final thing to remember is that certain jobs can also carry additional charges. Your plasterer will let you know if they need to add anything to your bill in order to pay for costs such as additional labour, materials or parking.
