Price on plaster demo and blueboard replacement

wethgardnerAugust 27, 2009


I recently had my insurance company pay my contractor to "remove and replace" plaster ceilings and walls in my home. We ended up doing repairs instead of removal and put up blueboard with 2 coats of plaster. I need to find out the price difference between what it cost the contractor and what my insurance company paid him. Can someone provide me with what I should have paid per square foot for the following: demolition of plaster(lath) ceiling, demolition of plaster(lath) wall, labor and materials to replace the ceiling and wall using blueboard coated with two coats of plaster. the way I live in CT.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I live in Pa and had 2500 sq ft done of walls ceilings were not done. The cost was $6,000.

I am sure the cost will also depend on where you live. The difference of cost of New York would not be anywhere near the cost of Pennsylvania.
