Feedback for JC Plastering and Construction

Jay is, without doubt, the most helpful tradesman I've ever hired!

He asked plenty of questions before providing a detailed, itemised written quote including areas where I could save money (for example by stripping wallpaper myself). He completely understood the quality of finish we wanted in the bedrooms within the context of our larger refurbishment project. His team were polite and tidy (given how messy plastering is of course!) and always prompt.

The decorator he brought in to paint the newly skimmed walls was excellent and we're really pleased with the end result. Jay, on the other hand, apologised profusely for some minor glitches in the finish of the plaster and discounted his price as a goodwill gesture.

We were so happy with his work that we swiftly used Jay and his team to skim and decorate another room in the house and will use them again when we get round to others!

One of the best things about Jay was his willingness not only to recommend other tradesmen for other work we needed doing but to bring them in off his own bat where appropriate - super helpful and much more efficient.
