A variety of determinants can influence the cost of your ceiling repair job. It could be the condition of your property or your own preferences, so you should definitely pay attention to these factors to get a good estimate of how much you’ll need to shell out.
- Size of the room – Bigger rooms require more time and materials. If you’re paying your ceiling company on an hourly basis, you can expect a higher cost for a larger property.
- Type of ceiling – Ceilings can be classified according to style or material. There are ceiling materials that come at cheaper rates, and there are also ceiling types that are easier to install than others. Ceilings that are more difficult to install will obviously take more time to finish. In this case, you should prepare for bigger expenses.
- Materials – Tradies may also include in their quotes the cost of materials that will be used. Plasterboard is commonly used for ceiling installation jobs. However, there are plenty of other materials that are being utilised such as wood planks, tiles, and screws.
- Finishing touches – The addition of mouldings, cornices, textures, insulation and other features on your ceiling will also drive up the final cost.
