    I'm considering the purchase of a Victorian 2-bed end terrace in Cambridgeshire. The trouble is most of the walls are covered in something which looks like artex and those that aren't are covered with woodchip (probably hiding an uneven wall). It seems that all of the internal walls and ceilings (covered in artex too) would require skimming.

    Could anyone provide me with a rough idea of how much this would cost?

    Thanks.

    we had a quote for our house last year

    £25 per sq meter for upto 10m sq
    £20 per sq m for upto 20m sq
    £15 per sq m for over that

    they did say the more you need doing the cheaper it gets....(to about 10sq m i think) seemed really expensive to me so i did the 7 walls myself - doesn't look too bad as our house is old so uneven walls don't look too out of place - lol


    i know of a good tiler in your area if you need one....but not plasterers :O(

    I had two walls and the inside of a wardrobe skimmed. Everything was new plasterboard, I supplied the materials (during plaster shortage, I had got hold of some).

    18.5 square metres in all, £100, 2 hours 30 minutes. The guy worked quickly and did a great job, 2 years later it hasn't fallen off :D He did two coats and I couldn't find a single blemish.

    I got quoted £100 by a different plasterer a few weeks ago to do a ceiling, 9 foot by 5 foot and that was the cheapest of the three!
