Plastering after rewire cost

looking to get my house rewired, 3 bedroom with conservatory and porch. Will need a plasterer to come in after. What sort of price would I be looking at? Understand it depends on the wall and ceiling damage of the house but if I could get a ball park until i can bring someone in for quotes

"it totally depends on what the electrician does and the damage her could leave. It could be a case of plastering over the wires and patches he has cut out which for each part could cost you form £70/£100 as it would need bonding then skimming over. Or if you are doing a whole rewire and would need to replace walls with plasterboard and then skimming a typical three bed house would cost you around £3k+ but it depends on the company, you could get cheaper but it very much depends on quality rather than the lowest quote. Your best bet is to get some quotes before hand even if it a bring description of what your wanting as it depends n what the electrician does and the damage he may cause.

We had has an electrician come to fit 5 socket in a lounge which has knocked the plaster off in areas around each socket so would need to bonded and then skim to give a smooth finish and had to charge extra labor and materials for the work because of another tradesmen. The cheapest price is always the best."

"the chases need bonding and skimming when chases have been cut out and wired but if you have good walls you can use fine filler and if your good at it you will be able to blend this in with the help of a decorater you paint over the chases when they have been painted and keep fine filling until your happy basically if not happy with the walls just bond chases wait till the bonding has gone off and apply 2 unibonds on the whole wall and skim on the price hard to say without looking but between 2 to 3 thousand at a rough estimate"
