Got a painter decorator round for a quote on Friday, just received it. It is for our stairs (and very small) hall. Due to the height of the ceiling at the stairs we can’t do it ourselves.
They quoted for skirting boards etc too. I would think it would take one guy a day, maybe two if I am being very generous. Maybe £50 for materials if you are in the trade.
And the quote? £1,250! This guy wants somewhere between £600-£1,200 per day for labour. Fuck off, prick!
