    Default Price on the metre...


    Touchy subject for many but what are you getting on the metre? Tape + jointing - 1.70pm (south east) is this good, average or shite?...

    If you're making money without breaking your back and have no better options, stick it out until something better comes along. Honestly though, I was earning better rates 25 years ago, when a bag of joint cement still cost less than a tenner.

    Even if its labour only, your third option of 'shite' pretty much nails it. Sorry if that's not what you wanted to hear.

    Twice that and a bit for luck. Plus beads. I don’t do site work though.
