80 kg plaster for one room !!


Is it possible to it would take 80 kg of drywall compound when doing the seams on one 12 x 27 room (excluding seams where there is crown molding)? Just questioning some bills from contractor. Is it customary for that I should pay for work light, trowels, etc.?

If you paid for them they should leave them behind for you.

You should not have had to pay for tools used. That is a business expense. What exactly do they have on the invoice you have. I know the companies that I have worked for have never charged anyone for the tools we use other than if one of the clients were using it and broke it or something along those lines.

That's 180 lbs(about 3 buckets of compound). Seems more then reasonable. Tools and work lights seems odd unless you have an unusual contract with them.
