Ceiling fallen in - which trade to contact?

Due to a leak from above the ceiling in a house I am considering buying has fallen in. Which type of tradesmen should I contact? I am thinking a plasterer - but not sure. Indications of cost would also be useful.

Your project would require a dry-liner, plaster, painter and decorator.
Prices depends on room size.

Leaks are usually caused by roofing leaks identifying them is key to stopping future ceiling problems once they have been repaired. getting a qualified roofer to identify the work and then having another one of our team members fix the issue you can be rest assured that leak will not return.

A plasterer should be able to help you repair the ceiling. Make sure the leak is fixed first but a plaster should be able to remove all damaged area (entire ceiling if needed) then re fix new plasterboard and plaster to a nice finish. Cost really depends on size of work needing to be done.

You will need a plasterer. Depending on the size of the damage and how much needs to be replaced taking into account rubbish needing to be removed will effect the cost, usually these repairs take a day. Costing anywhere between 250 to 400 pounds
