    You need to be more specific to get an answer to that, are you house bashing, site or private, industrial etc, tell us more about the job and location. Here's a clue house bashing in the SW anything over 2 sq/m is good right now.

    normally house bashing the prices are set by the contractor. A lot depends on how much you pay for your materials and how good/fast you are.

    I've read on this forum that CCF are best for materials. Am pretty fast, good quality unlike some who throw it up and less attention to detail when sanding.

    Just work it out backwards, for example I joint about 150 sq/m per day and use about 50 of materials. for that amount of effort I want to earn 250 to cover my traveling and tools etc, So you are looking at 300 for 150sq/m = 2.00 per Sq/m

    That sort of thing. Me im a lo slower pay more for materials and work for free

    I have just used Belmore for the first time, excelent. I like the metal angle and the paper is great, the scrim would be better if it were warmer. Fast delivery too. You have to shop around.

    I have used the same merchant for years and years but repeatedly they hike up their prices so I now buy all tapes mail order and just get the powder from them untill I can source better/cheaper.

    It does pay to shop around. The thing is, On site they will only allow BG or BG due to a rebate or something builders receive for BG products used. :/

    Its stickier

    We used to nuke rolls of scrim in the site canteen on really cold days.

    Lee if they want you to usee BG gear just add the difference into the price, for me an extra 10p covers it.

    Why would you tell a newcomer to the forum your rates?

    Lets suppose the guy is a QS and not a humble taper. He now knows what crappy rates he can get away with offering.

    Im not telling him anything that isnt common knowledge, housebashing rates are set by the contractor and a simple phone call will tell you who is paying what. As for pricing other work I only gave him the formular to work it out and a QS would certainly know how to do that for him self. Stop being so paronoid Tony its no big secret.

    Would you be so keen to give him the rates if he lived round the corner from you? I'm not paranoid, i'm just a miserable cnut.

    Yes Tony in house bashing all rates are transparent I know what every contractor is paying, its no big secret just pick up the phone call them and ask.It really is different to having to price your own jobs especially one offs, then we all have our own rates and methods of ariving at a price.

    If he lived round the corner and was working in the house next door to me yes I would tell him the rates, but he would all ready know because he would be getting the same.

    We're tape and jointers trying to make a living and get an some insight on what's a common rate. Instead of being taken for granted. Smile and don't be paranoid
