Who would fit a new bathroom ceiling?

I need a new bathroom ceiling. The flat upstairs had a leak and my ceiling now needs replaced. Can someone tell me what kind of tradesman I need for this job? Thanks

"The ceiling would of course be the responsibility of the person in the upstairs flat because they have caused the damage!

However as it is usually only plasterboard then it would be any handyman or if you wanted it done to a higher standard then a Dryliner would be needed."

"It does not require a specialist tradesman but your local general building contractor will sort this out for you."

"You need a plasterer to install new plasterboard and plaster it for you and paint"

"You would be best to contact a plasterer who would remove your existing ceiling plasterboard. A new ceiling and skim over to a smooth finish"

"You would need someone skilled in dry lining (plaster boarding) and a plasterer. Then a decorator. Most plasterers will board ceilings and walls.

Hope this helps."

A general builder with plastering and painting skills should do a complete job.
At a reasonable price due to the fact he has these skills
Hope that helps
