walls a right mess all, blown in most places, cracks all over the place, walls sound hollow. How big a job to re-plaster? I assume this means removing all old plaster? Room is approx 10ft by 10ft

Are you going to attempt to do this yourself?
#2
When i got my room replastered the just went over my old plaster and evened it out.

It took them a few days and my room is in the loft so its quiet big.

A very big job for yourself, but a qualified plasterer then very easy.

Sounds like you need to get someone in and finish your house off once and for all. !!!

if the old plaster is coming off u would probs be best to plasterboard over it or chip the plaster away and if their is holes in the wall cerment it then unibound it then replaster it.it should only take about a week to do, hope that helps

If its as bad as you say then yes a re-plaster is the best option. It all depends what type of construction and condition the sub -strate is ,dot and dab is the quick way using plaster board and a skimming over but get it done by a recognised company it's easier and less messy that way!:thumbsup:

what the plaster? i probably wouldnt stop till i saw daylight :oops:
#28
It really depends on how bad it is, whether it's just locallised areas that need to be removed and patched and then the whole room scimmed, in which case it should be only two days (one if you are lucky).

If it all or most of it needs to be removed and the whole room needs a base coat of plaster or the whole thing plaster boarding followed by a skim it will take 3 to 4 days depending on how long it takes to remove the old plaster, skirting boards etc.

The best thing is if you trust and know the plasterer to ask him his opinion and get a quote both from him and others as well.

If you like , you could start with the plaster once you make a start it's not too bad.
Be warned this will make a right mess. Where in the country are you, I know a good plasterer not bad on price either
banned#32
thanks barney, i dont really know the plasterer, and not seen any of his work, as for trust how the flip did you trust smeone youve never met
#33
Well I would expect it to take 3 days. One to remove old plaster, one for re-boarding and one for finishing. However you could save some cost by removing the old plaster yourself and disposing of it yourself in the bin over a few weeks, as the plasterer will have to pay for disposal. So 2 days should do it.

Remember work is slow at the moment so don't accept the first price. Offer 20% less than what is quoted then if he says thats too low ask to meet him in the middle.

Ask your friends and family if they have used or recommend one

Good advice, there's loads of them out of work ATM, ring around and get quotes from a lot of them and haggle!
