How much do plasterers charge in 2019?

Posted on 5/7/2019

How much a plasterer charges depends, as with all tradespeople, on what the task is, including

  • How urgent it is
  • How long it will take
  • What materials are required

The cost of plastering jobs will also depend on the size of the walls to be plastered as well as the accessibility of the location and the condition of the existing plastering. A simple refresh of a single wall in relatively good condition will be cheaper than several rooms with crumbling old plaster work.

A final price for any plastering job is virtually impossible until a qualified, experienced tradesperson, such as a Local Heroes plasterer, has visited and properly sized up the job.

However, you can still get a reasonably accurate idea for pricing based on a few different common plastering jobs. We have gathered together some of the average costs for the most common plastering jobs.

Average Local Heroes plastering prices

Updated May 2019

  • Plastering a medium-sized room

    The size of the room and height of the ceiling are the most obvious factors dictating the price of any plastering work but what is a "medium sized room"? An easy rule of thumb to remember is a room of roughly 3.5m by 5m or one which can comfortably sit up to eight people is medium. Check out our guide to measuring a room.

    Average prices

    Price range: £500 - £694
    Average (most common) price: £550

  • Ceiling plastering

    Plastering a ceiling is a similar process to the walls but is much more labour intensive and therefore can be a more expensive job. Plasterers can either use specialised equipment similar to indoor scaffolding or face long hours in uncomfortable positions up a ladder. As above, the size of the room will also play a large part in the price. The price quoted here is for a medium sized room.

    Average prices

    Price range: £180 - £322
    Average (most common) price: £270

  • Plastering a hallway

    While not typically a room, or a space that anyone spends a lot of time in, people and pets coming in and out with bags and shoes, the wear and tear on a hallway's walls can be a lot higher than other rooms. The length, height and accessibility of a hallway will affect the price of plastering the space.

    Average prices

    Price range: £285 - £700
    Average (most common) price: £300

    Book hallway plastering

  • Plastering a hallway, stairs and landing

    Stairways and landings are not the easiest spaces to work in so, depending on their size and how easy it is to work effectively, the price will change.

    Average prices

    Price range: £300 - £500
    Average (most common) price: £430
