Ceiling repair due to water damage
This was for water damage to my kitchen ceiling resulting in a large crack, and water dripping into the kitchen. We have a 50 year old bungalow. A new roof had been put in, and then we turned to the kitchen. It turned out that we had a "lathe and plaster" ceiling made prior to the time when they installed drywall. I first got a quote from one of Wall Doctor's competitors (also highly rated by HomeStars). They wanted $3000 to replace the entire ceiling, even though only one small area was damaged. I was told this was because of the risk in repairing a lathe and plaster ceiling, making it safer and necessary to take down the whole ceiling. I was relieved to get a quote from Daniel of Wall Doctor. He stated that taking down the whole ceiling was not needed, and quoted 2/3 the price that the previous contractor estimated. Wall Doctor did a good job. They were polite and clean. About a month after the job was completed, I noticed a small area where the new paint was peeling off the primer. I contacted Wall Doctor. They came back and fixed the problem free of charge. Very satisfied.
