    Hi Queen Bee - who did you get your carpet from where it cost you $800 for 3 bedrooms?

    Default Carpet

    We have just carpeted 3 bedrooms for a client in Greenbay for $800-00 using existing underlay, excellent quality with 5 year warranty laid and old carpet taken away....

    Cheers

    Default painting over wall paper

    I've been quoted $2000+GST to paint over wall papers of 3 bedrooms (other areas not included). Can anyone confirm if this is reasonable?

    The painter quoted additional $400 per room to strip the wall paper and paint over existing GIB.

    Thanks
    I believe in Time, not timing.

    The $2000 seems excessive to me but without seeing the place maybe not?? A good painter would do a job like that in a day and a half.

    On the other hand, $400 extra per room seems reasonable to strip the rooms first but I'd be wary of that quote because if the walls behind the paper were a mess, I would think he'd charge more again to repair the walls first.

    Default Thanks

    Hi Aston,

    Yea, that painter didn't seem right. Got another quote this morning. $1650+gst for all 3 rooms (walls and ceiling). I've told him to go ahead and paint over the wallpapers

    Thanks for the advise.

    Yes post wallpaper repir can be labour intesive. They have to scim and prep wall damage that may have occured.

    If you need any further painting questions answered my Inlaws have a painting Biz and a building also. They are great to help with advice. Drop me an email or PM.

    Any one got a current fix on the average hourly rate for a builder/handyman these days.

    I've just an invoice for $1500 of materials and $6400 of labour. He maybe spend 3 weeks on the job. I couldn't monitor that because I was on the other side of town at my work. but that would have been about the time it should have taken and even then at a sluggish pace so think this pricing is a bit out of kilter.
