Welcome to MyBuilder

Plaster rooms and skim ceilings

Bury St Edmunds 

Without the help of MyBuilder I would never have found as quickly and efficiently this trade person I knew I could work with to finish my renovation. Being new to the Suffolk area I had no local contacts and MyBuilder made the process of contacting and selecting very simple.

David is a very skilled and adaptable plasterer who can accurately quote for your job and provide an inventory of materials so you know exactly what you are working with.

I had a challenge on my hands to renovate a 1930s semi detached house within a strict 3 month deadline. My wife was due to return back to the UK after we lived abroad. The house needed to be liveable by the time my wife was back and ready for the delivery of our belongings that were in transportation from Malaysia.
I was living on site with a portaloo doing all the hard labour and managing trades myself as well as working my 9-5 so having someone reliable to take on the work was a great relief.

David is well rehearsed working on this type of job knowing he has to fit in his magic between the 1st and 2nd fix activities of electrical and plumbing installations. David always keeps you informed and is conscientious of working to the specification of the client.
To be fair to David he only had 12 days to plaster board and skim an entire house that had been stripped back to brick. His work is outstanding and creates such a glassy perfect finish and he transformed the look of my building site making it feel more like a home. David was great at giving advice about when and how to paint and made great recommendations which paint to use on new plaster.

David was a very clean and methodical worker and despite it being the 2 hottest weeks of May 2017 he never complained was always on time and energetic to get the job done. To find a tradesman like David is not easy amongst the crowd but using MyBuilder has helped find the right person for me.
David is young and full of energy, I wish him great success in his career and he deserves the chance at Job of the Year because he could do with treating his family to a holiday in the sun to make up for the hard work he put into helping me finish on time.
