Ed communicates timing and status well. Always on time. Clean job area after.
GREAT Workman ship.
I bought a house which had a basement family room that was drywalled by the previous owner but not taped. I got three quotes to do the job. Ed from DB taping was the only one to tell me that the drywall was installed incorrectly. He recommended and estimated removal of 75% of it and install ceiling straps and wall supports and correct the soffit box frames.
If I had gone with one of the other tapers I am sure I would have had problems down the road.

I was in the process of renovating my basement alone - I quickly realized that the taping/mudding process had to be done by a professional. Ed was punctual, polite, and completed the job on-time. Great communication and absolutely no hassles, I would absolutely use Ed in the future.

The work was done expertly. Ed went out of his way to explain everything to me and to make sure the job was up to my expectations. He worked around my busy schedule and even came on Sunday! I would recommend him without reservation to anyone doing a drywall project. I had hoped to add a few before and after pictures to this review but see no spot on the review page where I can do so. Perhaps I can add them later on the Homestar home page. I was so impressed by the work performed by DB Taping that I took the time to write this review, which is the first review I have ever written. Good work, Ed :-)

I couldn’t be happier with the stipple / popcorn removal and ceiling finishing Ed completed for us.

When we originally contacted Ed we had just finalized the purchase agreement for our new home and were lining up trades to start work once we closed on the house. We only had so many visits to the house before closing so it was critical that trades showed up to quote right on time. Ed showed on time, down to the minute as he said he would and after providing a reasonable and well explained quote we booked him for a specific start date a month in advance.

Ed showed up as promised on the start date and worked diligently and in a very organized fashion throughout our house removing the popcorn ceilings and doing several cycles of skim coat and sanding.

The results were incredible. As Ed finished room by room I followed him applying two coats of primer and then ceiling paint to all the ceilings. In the +1500 sq feet of ceilings Ed finished for us, there was literally not a single imperfection. I really notice details, and was expecting there to be some touchups required, but there was not a single one.

Additionally, worth mentioning is Ed’s attitude. It’s amazing. We had trades coming and going and Ed proactively worked with me to plan his schedule around the other trades while taking into account what our priorities for completion were.

I really cannot overstate how happy we were with Ed, his work and his attitude.

Where to begin? Ed was an incredible 'find' -- extremely polite, professional, performed far beyond our expectations, and at a very reasonable cost. The work itself, the finished product, was excellent. You won't find a better taper in the region.

We needed our basement ceiling finished in multiple rooms, and we needed to have a wall constructed around our furnace and water heater. Ed insisted on an initial in-person visit to properly assess the circumstances for the work. During that first visit, I'd estimate that Ed provided $500 worth of consulting for free: Suggestions re. how to construct the wall; suggestions for soundproofing options; recommendations re. how to deal with recessed lighting; things he noticed about our electrical setup and how to have them adjusted; even a suggestion about how to re-seal our shower.

I was new to the drywall experience, and had no idea what to expect. I naively thought that it was a 1-day process, maybe 2. Ed explained that he'd actually need to return to the house a total of 5 times in order to complete the job to perfection -- 2 days to drywall and build the room; 1 day for the compound ("mudding"); 1 day to sand and re-coat as needed; 1 day to light-sand and finish. When I learned this, I expected a far higher quote. The quote was reasonable for a 2-day job; for a 5-day job, I thought it was quite low. In addition, Ed provided several opportunities for cost savings, in the form of tips re. certain drywall materials that were overrated or overpriced. He was also honest about the fact that he's not a professional framer, and offered us a choice of whether to bring one in or allow him to tackle the wall. We opted for the latter, and I don't see how a professional framer could have done a better job. The wall looks great, is accurate to the millimetre, and all beams are perfectly level. Ed even helped to re-connect our pot lights, which required some electrical diagnosis and reconfiguring, none of which affected his original quote.

Ed was a pleasure to have in the house. He interacted in a friendly, joking manner with my wife, which made her comfortable about the work and the 5 visits, and he played with our two dogs. He insisted on cleaning up the drywall debris not only after the final day, but at various points in between. At no point did we feel uncomfortable, and at no point did Ed seem as though he was rushing the work. He rarely took breaks (we actually had to insist, a few times). It was clear from Day 1 that his priority was the quality of the work.

And, of course, the ceiling and the wall both look spectacular. At this point I wouldn't be able to find a joint in the drywall if I was paid to do so. Ed's taping/mudding job was superb (which actually helped make my subsequent painting job look good, despite my deeply sub-par painting skills).

When the job was done and Ed was gone, I found myself thinking that I'd likely call him first for any other work, drywall-related or not. Any framing, any electrical, etc. -- I think I'd rather have Ed's opinion first, Ed's attention to detail and commitment to quality.

We have one room left in the house with an unfinished ceiling, and when the time comes to tackle it, we'll definitely be calling Ed.

Ed recently completed the Drywall & Taping for our basement.
I'll start by saying Ed is a standup guy and did an amazing job! The end result was even better than I could have hoped. Additionally, Ed was a delight to deal-with throughout the entire project. I would highly recommend Ed and plan to use him for future projects.

Ed from DB Taping is the most professional drywall / taping contractor that I have had the pleasure working with. Not only did he work around my hectic schedule and show up on long weekends and other weekends to get the job done, but he did this with total care of my project. From start to finish, Ed was courteous, helpful, and on time. Did everything he said he would do in the time he said he would do it. Awesome.
Will be using only DB Taping on all my future renovations, and have already recommended him to friends.

We removed the popcorn ceiling from our dining room and wanted a professional to put on a finish coat. Ed from DB Taping was that professional. We found DB Taping on HomeStars and were impressed by the positive reviews, so we contacted Ed. He took care of the project from start to finish, with minimal mess, a thorough clean-up and best of all, a perfect new ceiling, all at a very reasonable cost. We would not hesitate to hire Ed for other jobs or to highly recommend him for any drywall, taping or finishing job.

Ed was meticulous and we are extremely satisfied with the finished work. Ed drywalled our unfinished basement apartment and upstairs kitchen. The area involved many angles and intricate workmanship. Ed stepped up to the plate and performed his magic. Ed is reliable and made sure the work site was cleaned up everyday. I would highly recommend Ed for any drywall project.
