    "Yes it can be smoothed at £14 a square meter as a ballpark figure."

    "The rate to plaster over a textured artex or stripped ceiling perfectly flat can range anywhere between £10 to £15 per m2. This will be due to variables such as depth of artex /stipple and area required to be plastered. So for a ceiling 3x4m = 12 m2 would be anywhere from £120 to £180.
    Hope this helps."

    "The best way to achieve this is it to be re boarded and skimmed. Can also be bonded out and skimmed but not always a perfect finish then. So depends on budget"

    "Yes, it’s called artex texture.
    It is possible to smooth over yes.
    The price I charge is about £10 per m2, or we can usually negotiate.

    "It's easily possible to smooth over and I wouldn’t look for a sq/m price as if ceiling is small it's not worth a m2 price in many plasterers eyes. Get a known plasterer to come and have a look give you a price."
