    As interiors

    "Hi Richard. If the artex is sound and not overly cracked then it’s cheaper to scrape it back and skim over it.

    A room that size I would charge between £500-£600. (Estimate as I haven’t seen the job)"

    "Hi Richard

    First of all if the ceiling is artexed you should be aware that artex may have asbestos in it (Health & Safety 101) it would be more cost effective to simply plaster over the artex .finish to the ceiling is based on the plasterer and the depth of the artex , although you should always be able to get a good finish fir painting. Finally cost dependent on depth of artex and condition of walls can be anywhere from £550 to £680 hope this helps"
