Plaster and lath repair


How much does it cost?

For example - plaster and lathe ceiling with heavy water damage. Pull down the plaster, then repair/replace lathe as needed, put up new plaster.

Please don't say "just put up drywall" because that's not the question.

two rooms - 10x15 and 9x15

Let's just talk ceilings for the time being, walls will come later.

Why not just call a couple local contractors and get quotes?Your tag says"Don't WANNA do it myself" A DIY'er would not know the cost.

Plaster and lath repair


Plasterers are not all that common - almost every general contractor I have spoken to has said the exact same thing "rip it down and put up drywall." That is not the information I am looking for. The VAST VAST VAST majority of general contractors don't do anything more than basic plaster patches, a 10x15 smooth finish ceiling is far beyond their skill set. And that's fine, but I need some information on plaster, not drywall.

I'm hoping there are some plasterers on this forum, and/or people who have had plaster work done. I have made phone calls already.

Plaster and lath repair


I do understand and plasterers are pretty much non existent these days.Here's the but!I know one in this area I could get a price from and it would do you absolutely no good in Rochester.
Hope there is a plasterer in NY on the board.You still have to find someone to do the job.I'm sure there should be a few in your area.

I'm just looking for ideas on price, I don't care if they are local or not.

The one person I spoke to gave me a number based on: 10x15 room, wood lathe, plaster already removed, smooth finish ceiling. I just asked for ball park, and he gave me a price.
