    Just wondering what people are roughly charging m2 for lime render?
    Spec is saying we have to use a premixed/bagged render, Base coat at 10mm and top coat at 5mm.

    What would people be roughly charging on a labour only m2

    It is never wrong to charge as much as you can for as much as you know.

    I never do it on a price, always day work, always.
    Good luck.

    Hi Mike, I've done a couple of these the last few years but never on a m2, a block price. Too many variables to consider. Price it and price it well I was told. What's the layout like?

    What you want to earn a day times the number of days to complete, plus materials = price.... Price divided by the m2 on job will give you the price you can quote I guess.. It's the only way I think...... Better than quoting a price per metre based on what you here others charge, then tring to work out how you will make a good wage killing yourself doing it. I made that mistake more than once.

    U can spray it no problem. U can get pre baged lime render. Takes a lot of work out of it. No waiting on the mixer 20 min to mix it. Or if u get the right sand a diesel machine will do it.
