    Price for New ceiling



    Could anyone give me an idea of cost to take down an old lath and plaster ceiling in a 12 foot x 11 foot room, then to plasterboard and plaster?

    We have been told £1100 which I feel is high, but but wanted to check. two men, two days apparently.

    Many thanks

    "to remove lath and plaster ceiling and disposal of the rubbish. Re-board then plaster ceiling of that size shouldn’t cost any more than £ 550 to £650 depending on the easiness of access and availability also the art of the country you live hope this helps"

    "Way too much you would be looking £400 plus materials which would probably be around £150 so Yeah we could do that half the price stay away save money"

    "Does the lath ceiling need to be dropped how badly damaged is it ?? If it's just cosmetic you could possibly overboard and skim the ceiling reducing the cost !! it could be over boarded and skimmed in 1 day with 2 men"

    "That's not too far away from what I would be charging, removing the ceiling, protecting floors etc, bagging and removing the ceiling, gyprock, and screws, then skim ceiling, maybe a good price is £800"

    "I would say this is a competitive price. If you break it down. A skip will cost around £180 depending on your area. £180 per person roughly a day £720 depending on your area. Plus materials this would work out around the £1100 figure"

    "It's always best to attain more than one quote, the price you have been quoted seems reasonable to me given the job in hand, time scale and team size. Unclear if it includes the plaster though if it does then even better price."

    "£800 is a more realistic price, as it’s 2 days work 1 man"
