Hi folks,

I have just started working with an electrician who is adamant that the chasing during a rewire is plastered and painted over by the electrician himself.

I'm sure I have heard electricians instructing the client to get a plasterer and painter to finish up.

How do you guys do it?

Do you fill in the chases and paint yourselves or get someone in to finish instead?

I'll hardwall the chases if the're paying me to, but they'll still need to top coat and finish it themselves, or get a plasterer in.

What about lifting laminate flooring? Easy enough to remove but I have no clue how to put it back again.

Generally Never fill the chases on a rewire unless it’s a very small job then I might whack a bit of filler in for the homeowner

got a Polish plasterer i know who will pop along after and re-plaster chases for £60 a day

If agreed I will fill chases but not to a finished standard, this is for the customer to sort out. I just work it into my quote.
