    Looking good KOP, I'd did tiling myself but is actually real pain job . I will not tile anymore and it's better when a professional does it within 4 days

    Small spaces always take disproportionately longer than bigger areas to work in. No space for more than one working, tools have to be left outside, a larger fraction of tiles need cutting, finishes need to be better because they will be seen from close up, materials don't dry any quicker just because the room is smaller, no margin for errors positioning things, etc.

    I think people watch DIY SOS and conclude that redoing their shower should only take a morning.

    Not far off then shaun true price was £2160 + materials but customer had a grumble at that so had to come to a compromise , room was 10'×10' only 1 toilet no other washing facilities so old toilet was in and out each day , did the shower in 3 days which took the pressure off you just cant please every customer , i have 2 more in the pipeline but I'll have to reconsider my pricing they take a long time to do and your flat out each day thanks for your comments guys , I start a heating job today no moaning customer as they have gone on holiday and left me to it and only 2mins from where i live result ! have a good week chaps regards kop.

    Just had two mirror image en-suite's done, wet room conversion, our plumber started on Monday and finished the next Friday, so about 12 days in total. Contracted out the tiling and plastering, cost in roughly the same ballpark per bathroom.

    Has to be at least a week to do a bathroom plus time on top of that for tiling. Anything between a week to 2 weeks is fast if the work is quality IMO.
    One man doing most of the work isn't going to be able to work miracles.
    I bet the customer works at an easy job and probably sits at a desk? I hate people moaning about how slow a job takes, yet they would be well annoyed if a fast botched up job resulted in trouble later.
    Always tell the customer it will take plenty of time to do the work

    It is a strange way a lot of customers think, - those plumbers that do a professional job are regarded as too slow, but the fast cowboy that cuts a few corners is fantastic.
    I still remember clearly doing a bathroom in an empty house just before one Christmas and being told by the customer that he was getting another plumber in to do work in the kitchen. When I asked why he wasn't using me, he replied that it was because I wasn't able to finish his bathroom. ( I had actually finished his bathroom and removed the new basin for tiling and was waiting for him to find a tiler, before basin and shower doors could be fitted.) Apparently my fault :mad:
