A good plasterer is hard to find as this trade in particular is always in high demand. However, compound that with construction material shortage that hit plaster hard and a trades shortage caused by soaring workloads during the pandemic and a loss of workers due to Brexit, and the task of finding a quality tradesperson for plastering walls becomes even harder. 

With that in mind, you could be waiting up to two months to find a plasterer who is able to take on your job right now but, while speed is of the essence in securing a plasterer as to not hold up your project, you also need to ensure you hire someone capable of delivering a quality finish.
