    Unfortunately it's not an exact science!

    IMHO, the best way is if you get a price for the whole job ie including agreed prep, plastering, cleaning up . Metre rates really only apply to site work or large areas in practice. Daywork is not ideal if you don't know the guy , and what he classes as a day's work. Also , it varies on where you live and how tricky the work is.

    Best bet is get three quotes, by recommended people who actually call round to have a look,not just measurements over the phone. Ask to see their work (often just asking this will give you a clue by his reaction!).

    Cheapest will not always be best. In fact, it rarely is!!!
