It's a con, I don't know anyone who charges more than £25 per m2, your
exterior brickwork can't possibly be 85m2, most mid terraced houses are 45m2
in total, meaning about 23m2 per elevation, you can subtract a few metres
off for the extension so the total should be about 20m2, which should come
to about £500, even if he has to hire zip up scaffold (cue the 'not allowed
to' brigade) then it can only be another hundred....don't pay more than £700
A few years ago I was doing it for a tenner a metre...it's not bad providing
you have a radio and a flask of tea, I can point about 15m2 in a day and I'm
not very fast, I know blokes who can do 20m2+, not bad money at all @ £25
That's what I thought when I started for first time I did it then I realised
that it gave time to think, ponder, even dream. There aren't many tasks
which don't demand concentration but allow the mind to wander.
I'd do it for £25 a square metre.
