We have an older character home and our plaster ceiling in our kitchen had started to sag recently. Then it went from bad to worse, and a large chunk fell out. Since many sections seemed unstable, we new something had to be done - and done well.
We knew right from meeting Shane that he was the right guy for the job. His knowledge of plastering showed immediately (and as many other posters have commented, that is a very rare thing in Toronto). He outlined the various possibilities, and we went with the one he suggested - plasterboard with a skim coat over top. He arrived when he said he would, he and his assistant worked hard to keep the dust down, and the final job was truly excellent. It is smooth, solid, and miles better than any plain-old drywall would be. The finesse of his skim work was really impressive - I can see how it takes years to master.
I would recommend him to anyone looking for top quality work, from a very talented tradesman, at a reasonable price. If we ever need more plastering work, and authentic lathe plaster at that, we will hire Shane again and know that he will do what it takes to finish the job right.
