    I priced a job recently, 2storey extension 395m2. Went in at 4m2 and lost out to plasterers! Fair enough, but dont call me to fix it!

    you really need to be a good plasterer to leave a good job as well and they are not cheap , a good plasterer in my opinion is worth his weight in gold but they are hard to come by, being a painter & decorator as well as a taper i have gone over some awful plastering jobs, you are almost flushing over the whole area again , the sparks cutting their boxes and the plaster bursts around switches & plugs, these plasterers are the ones who are undercutting the tapers because they cant do it right , it used to be a preferance if you preferred taping to plastering or vice versa now its about how much it costs to most people ,but i still bet that a top notch plasterer is dearer than a taper

    And so he should be. Plastering is a whole different ball game and, as you say, good plasterers are worth their weight in gold. Good plasterers wouldnt skim for sub 4m2 though
