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.

Can you spray lime render? not aware of a machine for this?
It will be a lot lot easier and faster using the prebaged. Get a machine in.
ive worked it out, it just seems expensive so was looking for some rough ideas of m2 from around the country see if i was in the ball park

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.

Roman stucco is for exterior moulding work it sets quite quick
well thats what i thought but they have specced it and from what i can see it has to be used.

using that stuff and to there spec thickness and labour its working out around £67.50m2 plus VAT

Seems f**k**g steep to me

Bloke who tutored us at college used to charge 70 quid a yard finished, that was about ten years ago now, mind you that’s three coat work
