We highly recommend Ivan & the Plastering National team for solid plastering and restoration/ repair of heritage buildings. Ivan repaired external render on our 1886 Victorian house. He was able to repair some damage to large walls whereas other plasterers told us we needed to replace render to the whole wall. He has the skills and training in traditional techniques we were looking for. Nothing was too much trouble and he is extremely tidy and polite and helpful. We would not hesitate to use him again or to recommend him.
We have recently had the pleasure of having Ivan work on our ninety-seven year old Californian bungalow. The job was to repair the original lathe-and-plaster walls in a large room - Ivan was sympathetic to our values of having the walls made neat and tidy, solid, ready for the next hundred years. He also understood that we were interested in the process and explained and demonstrated each step along the way. The result is wonderful. There is no escaping the fact that lathe-and-plaster work creates mess and dust - but the care Ivan took with covers and sheets meant this was kept to a minimum. A very hard worker, exceptionally skilled, a delight to have around, we are happy to recommend Ivan's services.
What a joy it was to see the team work their magic on the damaged, broken and missing pieces of plaster work on the facade of our 130 year-old home. He carefully and expertly rebuilt features back to their original form using traditional techniques and natural materials. A skilled craftsman, he is also approachable, patient, consultative and friendly. We are delighted with the result. Plastering National surpassed our expectations on all fronts and we could not commend them more highly.
After having an extension put onto the front of our house, Ivan came and rendered the brick and blue board. He blended in the old and new seamlessly, completely covering the brick so no shape shows through. He works quickly and very cleanly. We highly recommend Ivan and the team. Fabulous job!
The Plastering National tean did such a wonderful job at our house. They made the cracked walls and ceilings of our old Victorian home look like new again! We can't believe how smooth they are now. We're thrilled with their work. They was very reliable and take pride in their work. An absolute pleasure to work with. I highly recommend!
Ivan and the team were great to deal with. They did a wonderful and very reasonably priced job. They started and finished on time even though we added a few extra things.
I had quite extensive damage to 3 walls which had required the house to be underpined. The walls now look like new and you would never know that there had been any damage.
I am pleased to write this recommendation for the Plastering National team. We gave the team a variety of challenges to repair considerable damage to our 19th Century terrace. Ivan accepted all with professionalism, confidence and, even, enthusiasm. He has done all he said he would, and was at all times thoughtful, punctual and courteous. Great job!
During our reno, the unexpected happen and we needed a solid plaster. From the moment I called Ivan, he guided us through our options and was very personable and clearly knowledgeable. After receiving his reasonably priced quote, he was a pleasure to deal with and went above and beyond to deliver. We couldn’t be more happy with how his work turned out. I would definitely recommend Ivan.
