Extensive Plaster Work

Comment:

I hired Kieran and his team to restore the plaster throughout my home, which dates from the 1890s. I am beyond thrilled with the results. We had extensive cracking and separation of the plaster from the underlying bricks and wood lath. The results are incredible. Our walls are now smooth and solid and look amazing. I highly recommend Bestwall Plastering.

Description of work:

I had my plaster ceiling redone because pieces of it were falling down. I called three other places and no one wanted to deal with plaster. They said it was too troublesome.

Comment:

Kieran was incredibly professional. He arrived exactly on time and started working immediately. He covered every single area of the room in plastic before doing any plaster. He finished in a timely fashion and cleaned up the entire room before he left. It was like he was never there. He did an absolutely brilliant job!! Would hire him again in a heartbeat. He's a great guy.

I had a water leak from the upstairs bathroom

Comment:

I contacted them to get an estimate, they came and gave me a written estimate, I shopped around as I initially thought it was expensive, however after meeting a few other contractors, I realized that it was not that pricey as I was getting a better service and product. The walls and ceiling were repaired to perfection and I could not be happier. Would recommend - very professional, courteous and experienced.

Comment:

We bought an older house that needed plaster repair as the condition of the walls, ceilings, were not great, We contacted Bestwall Plastering who came by and provided a written estimate and explained the process, time frame. They started within a week and the job went well, the end result is that our house looks like new, they used the old plastering methods not compound/spackle the whole process was clean not to much dust they were on time ,easy going and worked hard. Overall we had a great experience and would use again.

Description of work:

Bestwall removed water damaged skim coat and sections of plaster moldings from three rooms in our early 20th century house applied new skim coating to three ceilings and re-cast and replaced sections of moldings in damaged areas. They also repaired cracks in the plaster walls where needed.

Comment:

The process was great and the work impeccable. It was easy to set up the consultation, which is $75 but applies to the cost of your job should you proceed. This is well worth it as Bestwall are expert plasterers, not some fly by night home improvement shop trying to make a quick buck. Even if you don't use them the information from the consultation can be used in your planning with another contractor and almost no one knows about plasterwork anymore. The work looks great and was done sooner than expected; they were willing to work weekends in order to finish as quickly as possible. And the best part, Kieran even helped me work with my insurance company so almost none of it came out of my pocket. Great experience, recommend without hesitation.

Old school plastering company.

04/21/2016

Description of work:

Reattached cracked plaster ceiling with washers and screws, put on a skim coat of plaster, then a fabric mesh binding ceiling together, another skim coat, and then a finish coat for 3 bedrooms and large living room of 100 year old house.

Comment:

I was offered 2 choices make it look good or make it as good as new. I chose the good as new since I plan to live in my house for a long while. It was a big job taking a full 5 days (about 65 man hours), 2 days for the living room and a day for each of the bedrooms.  The plaster has to cure for 30 days before priming and painting, which I did myself.  If you desire Bestwall Plastering will do the priming for you. I could of had the old plaster ripped out and sheet rock installed for less money but I wanted to keep the integrity of the house and I like the advantages of plaster over sheet rock e.g. low sound transmission, better fire resistance. It was amazing to see the difference the repair made, the cracks were all gone, water damage invisible, and small gaps gone.  After the priming and painting the ceilings were beautiful and probably looked like they did 100 years ago. My one complaint is that small droplets of plaster on the walls weren't cleaned up in two of the bedrooms.  The floors, walls, and furniture that was unable to be removed are protected by plastic sheeting.  On the days that these bedrooms were done there was only one laborer and small splashes of plaster on the walls were missed and not wiped up. I cleaned them off latter myself using a drywall mud knife.

Description of work:

Repaired and restored badly cracked bedroom ceiling.

Comment:

This could not have gone any better.  Kieran arrived punctually at the exact time he promised, looked at the cracked ceiling and then gave me his estimate.  We arranged to have the work done over Saturday and Sunday. They uses the old fashioned way to repair plaster, using disks drilled into the lath with 4-inch screws, and then uses a mesh, which is later smoothed over with plaster.  Nobody had ever repaired my house this way.  The result is amazing. My house, located in Brooklyn Heights, built in 1828, had lost many historic details in the past. Fortunately, the way this company did the work, we were able to save and restore the 10-inch ceiling molding as well. As to cleanliness, Kieran used every precaution--covered my tenant's large paintings and removed and numbered the ones small enough to take out of the room, to later replace them where they belong.  He also covered the floor, staircase and entrance. Amazing professionalism, punctuality and work quality.  Deserves an A+, were that available. And yes, I'll hire him again, to paint the ceiling once it's dry, and to repair my stairs ceiling plaster, where it's cracking around a bend.

Comment:

Bestwall Plastering did such a great job on repairing my open ceilings until I could not remember where the openings were. They also repaired my deck to which my town inspected and said they did a great job. I am grateful for their punctuality, professionalism, and fair pricing. Bestwall Plastering even repaired the molding on my walls. They did an excellent job and they completed everything in one day. I cannot stop praising God for this company and telling everyone I know what a great job they did in my home.

Comment:

Re-plastered the wall over the chimney. It took about 5.5 hours. He did a great job. Many people came to look at the project, but no one felt qualified to do it until Kieran came.

07/17/2015

Description of work:

Repaired large hole in ceiling that had to be created due to A/C leakage in attic.

Comment:

PERFECT!  Kieran arrived promptly when he said he would be there, gave a fair estimate of the cost and repaired the ceiling the same day. He was very personable, professional and an expert at what he does.  I could not be more pleased. I would definitely use him in the future!

06/28/2015

Description of work:

Re-plastered full walls/ceilings in several rooms throughout the home; some areas over stairs requiring scaffolding.  Repaired places where plaster had "bubbled-out" and separated from the lathe.  Patched holes left from electrical work.

Comment:

Kieran responded immediately to my call to set up an appointment.  He was prompt and professional in explaining what steps needed to be taken to repair the plaster walls in the 77-year old home.  He and his assistant began their days early and completed the work as was laid out in Kieran's plan in a timely manner.  They took care to work as neatly as possible, although dust from this type of work is inevitable.  They cleaned up the workspace when done with the job as well. Kieran's work is exemplary.  He is a true professional, and stands behind his work.  We followed his advice to wait two to three weeks before painting to allow the plaster to cure.  At the end of the curing period, we were getting set to paint, and noticed parts of the finish on one wall did not look as smooth as the others.  I described it to Kieran as looking like the veins on the back of your hand.  He came the next day to assess the problem, and repaired the sections that needed it that same day.  The problem did not recur.  Since then, the room has been painted and looks fine. We chose Bestwall Plastering because of the excellent reviews from other customers, and feel confident in giving them the same excellent recommendation.

Description of work:

Kieran and his two-man crew came and helped fix a large crack on my upper wall, and then plastered my entire ceiling because of cracks and instability due to old age.

Comment:

Kieran was very prompt with his replies, and gave an honest and professional opinion on what I wanted to be done and what he also suggested to be done. Once I decided to work with him, an opening was available to get the job done within the next couple of days. He and his crew came on time and were able to complete the wall and ceiling within 5-6 hours. They brought in their own equipment and covered and cleaned up during and afterwards where they could. Overall, the job looks fine and I do feel better now that the wall and ceiling have been reinforced to last a long while more.

Description of work:

Bestwall Plastering repaired a plaster ceiling that had sustained water damage and plastered a ceiling in a bathroom that had been remodeled. These gentlemen are very knowledgeable about their craft, professional, and exceedingly careful of the environment in which they work. I would not hesitate to recommend this company. (Of note, if you are in need of plaster restoration in an historical home/building, do consider this company.)

1/18/2014

Description of work:

The plaster ceiling in the hallway was coming down from a roof leak. They had to tear down the loose plaster and patch the 3x5 area. They then applied screening to the entire ceiling a put a skim coat over that. All I did after letting it cure was to sand lightly with super fine sand paper and the surface was as smooth as glass. Amazing that such a smooth surface was achieved by hand.

Comment:

The workers showed up promptly at 8:00 and were very professional. They put plastic over every doorway and cleaned up after they were finished.

Description of work:

Following work to replace electrics in several rooms in an old Brooklyn brownstone repaired and plastered over holes in four rooms.

Comment:

Following work to replace electrics in several rooms in an old Brooklyn brownstone, we needed several holes (including some very large ones) patched and plastered over. In addition, plaster work around a ceiling fan needed to be fixed.  Kieran responded to my request and followed up quickly.  We were able to schedule a day fairly quickly, and Kieran and his team completed the job in one day.  I would use them again and am very happy with the entire job.

11/03/2014

Description of work:

Reattached plaster to walls and ceilings in three areas of the house. Installed blue board and two coats of veneer plaster on a ceiling. Duplicated plaster details from another part of the house and installed around the fireplace along with newly fabricated plaster details.

Comment:

Kieran gives quotes same day, responds promptly to calls and completes work at or below the cost of the quote. Kieran listened to my specifications and followed through perfectly. Some parts of our project were small enough that he worked alone but for other parts his assistants came and they were wonderful as well. Worksite was left clean and tidy; workmen were all respectful and helpful.  Kieran is truly a craftsman and artisan and he and his assistant did a fabulous job replicating details from around our bay window to add some grace around the fireplace across the room. I would recommend Bestwall for simple plastering as well as restoration and fabrication of architectural details.

Description of work:

Repair damage to interior walls and ceiling caused by leaking roof. Repaired and plastered 3 walls

Comment:

Kieran and his team do high quality work. They are always on time and very professional.

10/26/2014

Description of work:

Kieran and his team re-plastered our home office (walls and ceiling), including the walls and ceiling of a small closet.

Comment:

Kieran did an exceptional job, completing transforming our very cracked walls and ceiling into beautiful, clean walls that are as smooth as glass. We have been working with Kieran over the last two years to help us re-plaster the walls and ceilings of our 1901 Victorian. Prior to our home office project, he helped us rehabilitate the plaster walls and ceilings of our front parlor, entry hallway and staircase. We had some very significant plaster issues/cracking, which Kieran completely stabilized. One of his most impressive projects with us was to replace some wedding cake detail, which had sustained water damage and been sanded of in one corner of the ceiling. Kieran and his team made a mold of another corner, which was still in tact and installed the mold in the damaged area, perfectly blending the detail in the old design with the newly molded area. His work was so perfect that our friends and neighbors can't believe that section of the ceiling isn't original. Kieran is a true artisan. He is incredibly detailed and always walks through his work with us at the end of the project to make sure that we are completely happy with the end result. He's incredibly patient with us in answering all our questions. Most important, he is incredibly respectful of our home. Plasterwork can be incredibly dusty, but Kieran always leaves everything clean at the end of every workday. And, it's always comforting to know that we can leave him and his crew to complete the project while we're off at work.  Plasterwork can be expensive, but compared to other contractors' estimates/portfolios of work; Kieran's work is well priced. We plan to enlist his help with our remaining room projects.

Description of work:

Repaired a damaged plaster wall in an older home.

Comment:

We used Bestwall Plastering to repair a damaged wall, and based upon the job they did, I can highly recommend them. We have an older home that has plaster over wood lathe walls. On one section of our dining room wall, the plaster began to come loose from the wood lathe, and bow out.  Some cracks had begun to form, and based on our prior experience, we were expecting a tough job. The last time something like this happened, they removed all of the plaster down to the wood lathe, and then had to re-plaster. It was dirty, and took a number of days between each coat of plaster. Once done it took about a week to fully dry. When I called Bestwall, Kieran said he could come by the next Saturday, and would be there at 8:30. From what I described, he thought he might be able to repair the wall that same day. He arrived early, and after looking over the job gave us a written estimate, and explained how he would repair the wall. Using a special fastener he pulled the plaster tight to the lathe. Then he applied a mesh fabric and skim coated the entire section of wall. The area was about 3' by 17', and he was able to have it done by midday. He took his time working, and that gave me a chance to talk with Kieran. I quickly learned that he is a true craftsman, when it comes to plaster. He showed my wife and I some of the ornamental work he's done, and it is truly amazing. When he finished up, he swept up, vacuumed, and then wiped down the floor. He treated our home; as if it was his own, and if it weren’t for the moved furniture you would never have know the work was done that morning.  The best recommendation I can give is that since this work was done, we have Kieran scheduled to come back in a few days to work on two other walls that need repair. Having found Kieran, and Bestwall, I don't need to look for anyone else when we have a problem with any of the walls or ceilings. If you have an older home with plaster walls, and particularly if you have any decorative plaster work in you home, call Bestwall if you need to make any repairs. They're the best, and I can highly recommend them. Note:  We called them back to do some additional work at our house.  Once again they did a great job. Kieran came out with his crew, and worked along side them. They skim coated 2 1/2 plaster walls, and repaired some drywall on an enclosed porch. The walls all came out great.  They work very neat, and leave the place clean when they’re done. When they finished Kieran went over the work with me to see if I had and issued, but just like the first time the did some work for us, everything came out great.  IF YOU HAVE AN OLDER HOME WITH PLASTER WALLS, MAKE THEM YOUR FIRST CALL IF YOU EVER NEED ANY REPAIRS.
