Board-up and plaster of fireplace - Plastering job in Edinburgh, Midlothian

Job description

  • Plasterboard and skim
  • Small area to be skimmed

Customer description

I am looking for a quote to have a fireplace boarded up and plastered/skimmed over to prepare the area for repainting. The fireplace itself is original (Victorian), but until recently was fitted with a modern gas fire. The gas fire has already been removed and the supply capped by an engineer.

The cavity is about H: 55cm W: 41cm D: 43cm. There is a small area around the cavity where the fire surround was that also needs repaired.

We have already sourced a reproduction Victorian vent to aid circulation so would need that fitted in the board but would appreciate guidance on any additional damp proofing in the cavity that might be necessary.
