    Hello everyone,
    We live in a bungalow in the Warrington area, and I have removed the chimney breast, battened and boarded the now straight wall, and now it ready for skimming either with Multi or board, I have done skimming before and consider myself competant/ish, but to be perfectly honest with you I think I'm getting a bit old/tired now, so I think I'll get someone local to do it for me now.
    Would the spreaders on here be so kind to take a quick look at the photo and give me an idea what kind of cost for the job.
    The width/height are....just shy of 4m wide,x 2.4m height, =9.6m2.
    and ceiling is...0.36mx1.6m
    Thanks.

    If you want someone to just come and skim that you would be better off filling the gaps you have left around the edges yourself

    If there wasnt a good reason to leave a gap at the top I would have fitted tight to ceiling as its easier to hide a gap at the bottom which avoids possible future cracks at the top
