Setting the right budget

How much should you expect to pay?

We know it's difficult to estimate how much a project will cost, that's why we've surveyed our tradesmen to give you an idea of how much you should expect to pay for specific jobs. Tradesmen all across the country have contributed to the cost guides, so the costs you see are an approximate national average.

Medium sized wall

Low High
Medium sized wall £70 £150

Skimming a single medium sized wall should be a job that an experienced plasterer can complete within a few hours. The plasterer will examine the wall and then check it for dampness or cracks before proceeding to skim it with plaster to form a smooth surface that is suitable for redecoration upon drying. Your plasterer will fill any cracks on the medium sized wall that you need to have skimmed and they will make sure that the wall ends up with a smooth finish that matches the walls in the rest of the room.

Rated People surveyed 59 of our plasterers across the country to give you an idea of the approximate cost of plastering and skimming in your home.
