What type of tradesperson do you need?

What type of job is it?

Plasterers & Renderers - what you need to know

A good plasterer can give your walls a smooth finish, whether covering up the brickwork of a load-bearing wall, or to cover the plasterboard of an internal wall. Once don,e the wall is damp-proofed and ready for decorating. And, of course, a good plasterer will do it in record time.

What your local plasterers and renderers can help with

  • Solid plastering - applying wet finishes to surfaces and putting protective coverings on outside walls, e.g. pebble dash.
  • Fibrous plastering - creating ornamental plasterwork, such as ceiling roses, cornices and architraves.
  • Dry lining - fixing internal plasterboard or wallboard partitions.
  • Skimming - covering plaster with a flawlessly smooth surface for decoration.
  • Rendering a wall - protecting or brightening brickwork, adding a modern layer of plaster to the wall or simply repairing or replacing current renders (such as stucco finishes).
plasterer illustration

They can also create ornamental plastering to give your home a rustic or decorative feel. Their skills stretch to putting up internal plasterboard and wallboard partitions - great for when you need to create a new room or space in your home.

In a modern home, plastering work and skimming should be a simple task for any experienced plasterer.

In period or suburban properties, the walls can be made from brick or even concrete, and the plaster may be applied direct to the walls rather than to plasterboard.

For older properties, you may not be after the smooth finish we’re used to in modern homes. One option is to go for a lime plaster instead that gives a more rustic look. If you have an older home, or one that’s listed, always let the plasterer know first so they can take this into account.

The cost of plastering will depend on the size of the room and how much work needs to be done in terms of preparation and finishing. If the plaster on your walls has deteriorated a lot or there is damp plaster work on the ceiling that needs to be removed, you'll likely need the old plaster to come off and an entirely new plasterboard fitted.

Costs for common plastering work

Plastering and skimming in a modern property (per room):

Some typical jobs Low High
Walls and ceilings, plaster only £370 £675
Walls and ceilings, with skim finish £495 £925
Ceiling, plaster only £115 £265
Ceiling, with skim finish £165 £365
Walls, plaster only £280 £540
Walls, with skim finish £380 £740

Plastering and skimming in a period or suburban property:

Some typical jobs Low High
Walls and ceilings, plaster only £470 £875
Walls and ceilings, with skim finish £595 £1,125
Ceiling, plaster only £125 £325
Ceiling, with skim finish £175 £425
Walls, plaster only £360 £700
Walls, skim finish £460 £900

Rendering a wall

Some typical jobs Low High
Outside wall, excluding scaffolding £280 £540

Skimming ceiling and walls for a whole room

Some typical jobs Low High
Walls and ceilings £250 £500
Walls £200 £400
Ceiling £100 £200

Insurance for plastering work

Like most tradespeople who are working on your home, they’ll need public liability insurance to protect you against any damage that could potentially happen.

Planning permission for plastering jobs

Check if you need planning permission if your home is a listed building or in a conservation area. Your plasterer or builder should be able to advise on these issues.

Building regulations for plasterering contractors

If a render covers a substantial part of the exterior of your property, your plasterer will need to comply with building regulations.

 

Questions you should ask a plasterer

  • Do they have public liability insurance and what does this cover?
  • How long have they been trading for?
  • How long will the work take?
  • Does the room need to be cleared and is this something they can help with?
  • Will the room be usable immediately after the work or does it need to dry? If it needs to dry, how long for?
