Hi there I'm a damp proof plasterer (Dave plastercare) and I always use Micky lawless for any jobs that need rooms,ceilings or hallways that need re skimming,mick has also done some great outside rendering work for me as well would highly recommend
Just to add to the above, Micky has just completed a second job for me, the first being some years ago. Micky works to a high standard and makes the minimum of mess - even managing to keep the carpet in the room as clean as it was when he went in, despite having been told I was getting it replaced in a few weeks as part of ongoing works.
Work he has done for me this time has included removing old cornice and ceiling rose, boarding over old dilapidated ceiling and skimming over the board. All looks nice and smooth now ready for the cornice expert to put in new cornice and ceiling rose next week.
In the past he has re-plastered a stairwell which included needing to fix a bodge job done by previous owners of the house who in one place had put hardboard up and papered over instead of plaster-boarding and skimming the wall.
Another recommendation for Micky. Recently moved to the area so have been checking this forum for tradesmen. He came round promptly and provided a competitive quote to plaster a bedroom and landing. There was some extra plasterboarding to take care of as i'd removed skirting and chased some cables up a wall but Micky was happy to sort it at no extra charge. A decent, friendly guy
I would also highly recommend Micky for any plastering work. We tried removing the woodchip in our hallway and the walls underneath were in awful shape, with layers of plaster and paper all over the place. It was going to be a big job to fix, we contacted 2 traders who both seemed unenthusiastic about the scale of the job and quoted very high prices. Micky was really friendly and gave us an excellent price, he's a very nice guy and a truly skilled plasterer - the quality of his work was excellent. Would use him again in an instant, thanks again Micky!
