Excellent work and we are very happy.

Plasterer needed for a bathroom job on 4th Nov


Mark did an excellent job putting up my mirror. He was very professional, meticulous, kept me informed all the way through the job, was on time, polite, and left the place neat and tidy afterwards. I would certainly consider using his services again in the future and would recommend him to anyone who wants to get something done properly and the first time.

Top Plasterer related questions

What's the price of plastering per m2 in the UK? While varying by several factors, plastering typically sets you back around £150 to £200 on average.

For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what plasterer licenses may be required to undertake your task, as this can vary. Plasterers get a Certificate III in Solid plastering when they undergo an apprenticeship in general construction. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant licence, experience, and insurance before accepting an offer.

That depends on the scale and complexity of the job. Plastering several ceilings and walls can take weeks, as most plaster needs to dry for at least a day before applying more layers to finish the job. Plaster repairs can take weeks, depending on the severity of the damage and how complicated it is to replace and repaint the damaged plaster. You can ask your Tasker for a more precise estimate of how long the job will take.

Unless there’s a compelling reason to do so, it’s better if you preserve the plaster, not replace it. The plaster in your home is handmade and adds to its aesthetic value and character. While it may sound reasonable to remove damaged plaster and replace it with drywall, this may not be the best decision as this can significantly reduce your home’s value. Consider hiring experts on Airtasker to restore the plaster and thus preserve the value of your home.

In some ways, yes, plaster can be better than drywall. Unlike drywall, plaster doesn’t allow mould growth. Plaster walls or drywall that’s plastered over offers better soundproofing and fireproofing. However, in terms of insulation, dry wall plastering can be better than some types of plaster, despite plaster being thicker. Plaster is a more labour-intensive material and takes more time to apply, but it is the more durable and stylish finish of the two.

Sure! You may want to consider plastering your walls and ceilings with this material as it not only prohibits mould growth but is also effective in repelling dust mites. Clay plastering for walls is perfect if you have family members that have asthma or are prone to dust allergies. As clay plaster is entirely natural, it doesn’t need or use any harsh chemicals, so it’s likewise safer for everyone in your home.

Yes! Just be specific when booking a Tasker to get your decorative plaster ceiling repaired or restored. Don’t forget that you can connect to many different ceiling plastering experts out there. You can also call on tradespeople who specialise in textured plaster ceiling repair, falling plaster ceiling repair or even repair small holes in plaster ceilings. Note that depending on the extent and nature of the damage, you may have to hire another expert to help in repairs.

For best results, wait at least a week for your newly plastered ceiling to dry before painting. While your plastered ceiling may look and feel dry to the touch after a couple of days, it may not have completely cured. If still wet, the deeper plaster layers can absorb moisture from paint and cause it to peel off. Don’t risk painting your ceiling plaster too soon and hire an expert to do it. 

Yes, you can! Though you may want to wait for a day before moving in. The room can have a lot of condensation and feel damp, and it may not be the most comfortable area to sleep in. The good news is that most plasters are non-toxic, so while the area may feel damp, you don’t have to worry about inhaling any harmful fumes and developing an allergic or adverse reaction. 

Maintaining your plastered ceiling involves regularly cleaning and washing off stains. You can use a vacuum with a brush attachment to loosen and remove dust and dirt. Apply diluted hydrogen peroxide or bleach on stains, then wipe off with a soft cloth. Another helpful measure is never to smoke indoors. Tobacco smoke can waft up and stick to your ceilings and leave unsightly stains.

There is no quick answer for this, as there are several types of plaster. The “best” plaster is one that offers you the best combination of durability, safety for your household members, aesthetic appeal and cost. Gypsum plaster is the least expensive option but isn’t very sturdy. Lime plaster is non-toxic, can regulate humidity in a space, is durable and natural but takes longer to apply and can cost more; spare yourself the hassle by hiring a Tasker!

Most plasterers recommend that the plaster stops at 2.5 cm or an inch before reaching the floor. This is assuming your floor has no skirting or baseboards. There should be some allowance because if the plaster extends to the floor, this can dry the fastest and create unsightly trowel marks that won’t match the colour of the rest of the wall. 

You can have the wiring installed before having your walls or ceilings plastered. Your electrician may do some rough work installing the wiring, switches and switch plates. The plasterer can mark these off and cover them with plastic, do the plastering then your electrician can come back to finish. If you have the plastering done first, your electrician will have to score plaster to fit wires, plugs and switches; then, your plasterer will have to do a lot of patch-up work.

It would help if you had the plumbing done before plastering - even before the wiring. Remember that it’s easier to bend wires or cables, but it’s more difficult to bend pipes! Your plumber must also test the water pressure and check for leaks. Doing the plumbing after the plastering means breaking plaster to access or mount pipes, and this can mean twice the work and cost of plastering.

What do plasterer services include?

Your plasterer services include all the activities necessary to apply plaster on your walls and ceilings, apply different types of plaster, and repair existing plaster. Your hired plasterer can do the necessary planning and preparation before application. Plasterers can recommend different options for the task, advise the most suitable plastering materials, and use the appropriate materials, all while following the manufacturer’s recommendations, building codes, and the best practices in the construction industry. The plasterer service can involve different jobs, such as: 

Ceiling Plastering

A plasterer can seal each portion between plasterboards with fibre tape or a similar protective material. They can mix the plaster to the right consistency, apply it to the ceiling and ensure complete and consistent coverage. Your Tasker can ensure the application complies with the manufacturer’s instructions, industry best practices, and any appropriate regulations. 

Wall Plastering

Plasterers can prepare the site by placing a protective covering on the floor, furniture, light switches, and electrical sockets. You may hire someone to do the wiring before plastering or switch off the power before your Tasker starts work. Your wall plasterer can use the appropriate tools and techniques for wall plastering, and follow the instructions for drying and reapplying plaster coats until the job is finished. 

Plaster Repair

Plasterers can inspect the site to assess the extent of damage to the structure. You may need to hire someone to inspect and repair areas close to or supporting the plaster before your plasterer starts work. You can also ask someone to check if the damage is due to leaky or busted pipes and fix those first. Your plasterer can prepare the appropriate amount of plaster for the repairs and do what is necessary to mimic the existing plaster. After repairs are complete, you may want to hire someone to apply fresh paint to the restored plaster and return it to its former glory.

Plaster Coving

As for plaster coving, a plasterer can inspect and prepare the site before working on the coving. Some Taskers can move or cover the furniture in the room, but note that you may have to hire a separate service to clear the space. Your Tasker can measure and cut the coving to fit, install it onto the ceiling with adhesives and secure the coving as the adhesive sets.

Polished Plaster

To apply polished plaster, a plasterer can prepare the walls by cleaning and smoothing them with a sander. Following the manufacturer’s instructions and industry best practices, they can apply as many coats of polished plaster as needed, sanding or applying glaze between coats. They can apply a water-based sealant to finish the job. 

Lime Plastering

Plasterers can prepare the site and mix lime plastering material of the right consistency. They can apply the lime plaster in the appropriate number of layers, scoring and smoothing each layer as needed and allowing the layers to dry between applications.
