How much should a plasterer or painter cost?


Like so many trade industries the plaster and paint industry has gone through a multitude of changes in recent years, not all of them positive according to David Baker owner of AP&P. “There are some great painters and plasterers out there, but there are also a lot of cheap, less than quality jobs being done,” he says.

He wants to see that change, and he’s working to do just that by leading teams through his painting and plastering company AP&P - an enterprise dedicated to delivering a high level of craftsmanship at reasonable prices.
