I cannot say enough good things about James and his work. I live in a historic home and needed plaster work done on my second floor ceiling directly over the entry staircase (3 levels high, delicate and ornate). I have dealt with a lot of contractors as an owner of an old home so I am giving this review with a qualified level of experience. 1. He was professional to deal with, prompt to return messages if he couldn't take my call and on time for the bid and the work. This was also done just after the stay at home order was lifted. James and his partner were very conscious of being safe and keeping my family safe based on the risk of Covid 19. 2. His work is perfect. He didn't have to replaster the entire second floor ceiling but what was not damaged had a slight texture. He blended his work perfectly with the existing work. You CANNOT tell where he started and finished. The work required different levels of scaffolding in the stairwell and hallway. He was careful not to nick or damage walls, banisters, or woodwork. 4. He worked clean. Imagine the mess with tearing out plaster on a ceiling over a flight of stairs. When he left, other than the ceiling being fixed, there was absolutely no indication that he was ever there - no dust, no plaster pieces, no stains, no mess at all. I didn't have to vacuum or clean up anything. 5. The cost was extremely reasonable and within the amount of his bid. The work wasn't cheap but he doesn't do cheap work - worth every penny! I wasn't looking for a bargain, I was looking for good work at a fair price and couldn't be happier. If you need plaster work done, I believe there isn't anyone better.
