How can I find a plasterer near me in Colchester?
There are many great reasons for using a plasterer who’s local to you. They can come out to you more quickly and easily than someone based miles away, and a local tradesperson will be familiar with the traffic and parking situation too.
But Colchester’s a big place, and finding a reputable plasterer in your area can be tricky. Our clever matchmaking system connects you with plasterers near you in Colchester. Once you’ve posted your job for free, we’ll share it with hundreds of skilled and experienced tradespeople in your area. Over 90% of jobs posted on MyBuilder receive interest, and you can often expect to hear from someone within a few minutes.
How much does a plasterer in Colchester cost?
Plastering costs in Colchester tend to range between £15 and £35 per hour or from £120 to £250 a day. These rates may vary depending on the size and nature of the job, so it’s always worth asking interested tradespeople for a detailed quote before you confirm a job.
For example, replastering will always be cheaper than a full plastering job where old plaster needs to be removed and a new base constructed.
It’s also worth being aware of potential additional costs before you start. If you’re planning to have the outside of your home rendered, for example, you may need to pay for scaffolding. Or if there’s a lot of old plaster to dispose of, you’ll want to hire a skip, which costs between £350 and £500.
We’ve shared a pricing guide on our website with more information.
