Cant help with a good plasterer nor likely cost, sorry, I persuaded the Council to do it for me. But try the search facility on this site because there have been many recommendations before.

There is a product designed for DIY covering of Artex that I saw advertised recently. I think it was made by the manufacturers of Polyfilla or 'no more nails'.

Bera in mind that Artex was often put onto ceilings and walls to cover poor plasterwork so scraping it off may not help!

Why would you want to remove artex in the first place?? I love it. You should see the artexing in Tower Tandoori. Talk about Cistine Chapel........

Gaffer, I got a pro in, it was quicker and guaranteed good results, although he's not doing it anymore. I think plasterers may have been recommended on this site before.

Barkyhead, I admire your faith in a plasterer's guarantee. I'm sure I've heard my old Dad saying, "ooh, it's a bit of a plasterer's guarantee that, son".

Asbestos was used in textured finishes until mid 1980s. See http://hse.gov.uk/asbestos. Those exposed need to seel medical advice and advice on residual contamination (specialist clean, never a domestic vacuum cleaner).
