Always get the builder to visually inspect the property prior to pricing as your only inviting cowboys and quick hit and run builders.## many hidden factors could arise in terms of cost and delays.

With regards to your question; how long is this illusive piece of string?

Generally speaking a good builder will charge between £100 - £150 per day. This job should take around 5 days plus materials.

Hi there, if i'm honest we never like to give a guide price. We find the best way is to view the property free of charge, that way we can give you an accurate quote and discuss the job requirements fully with the customer. Many thanks Daniel Dlg Painting & Decorating

I see your no better off than you were before ,you've had ranges from a ridiculous 1k to a more sensible 3-4k - this is common when asking for guide prices , it really is best to get someone round to quote properly.
