David plastered our front room and did a great job. The edges and corners are all neat and sharp. He managed to squeeze us in before Christmas and has worked around the other trades even working on Sunday so that the space was clear for joiners and electrician. Slightly messy worker but very good finish and fair price.

Extremely impressed with Dave and his team. Quoted for the work and kept to his price. It was a very challenging plastering job in a very old house and he completed the work in a very skilled manner and I'm absolutely delighted with the results. Would have no hesitation recommending in Dave to others

Porch plastering Plastering
David did a great job in what was a tight and awkward space; he consulted me throughout and took his time to get it right. The job was done exactly as I asked and the finish is better than I expected; I would definitely hire this man again.

large stone patio to be repointed Landscape Gardening
David and his team did a great job in laying a beautiful large Indian stone patio. David was prompt with calling round to give quotes, even though we changed the scope of the project meaning he had to come back a few times! The guys working on the patio were tidy and curteous and kept us up to date with how long it would take. We are really happy with the end result and would recommend David.

Baby's bedroom congleton Plastering
Great job that was fitted around our schedule (given a few unexpected changes and last minute hospital appointments from us). Both David and George worked their socks off, and were comfortable to be around (very important thing for a heavily pregnant woman home alone). Would recommend these guys 100%. Will be looking to hire them again in the future.
Thanks Dave - you're a star.

Plaster bathroom walls and ceiling Plastering
Dave managed to fit us in at short notice. Lots of prep work to bathroom walls and plaster re skim. He listened to what we were after and advised on the most cost effective way forward. Finished to a professional, high standard. The room and house was cleaned afterwards and left in great condition. Will be using him again for lots of other work if he's not too busy! Thanks.

David on a whole was helpful and did a good job. There was some miscommunication on price initially but we agreed a price that was fair and David and his team got to the job in hand and turned the work around in decent time. The level of work was maybe more than David anticipated and in hindsight potentially too much but his experience and enthusiasm for getting it done was evident and therefore would use again on single room projects rather than the hallway, landing, two bedrooms and ceilings that were done.

wall paper removal and plastering Plastering
David Cooke arrived on time to view the proposed work. He persuaded me that I didn't need to remove all the wallpaper. He offered to do the work while I was away. He did the work quickly and efficiently. He didn't remove paper from one small area but I think that was a small misunderstanding when discussing the work initially and nobody's fault. I can't comment as to whether the price was standard as I didn't have anything to compare it to. One person came round , from the mybuilder website but didn't provide a quote.

Repair dry stone wall and lay garden patio Landscape Gardening
A great job! David and John repaired an unstable dry stone wall that had a collapsed section. It was a tricky job as the wall tended to collapse further during the repair but was done within the day as promised. Thanks.

Leveling the garden then having it turf Landscape Gardening
David was on time when he came to give me quote the person who came before him was very late and said job was too hard because access to back garden was difficult and refuse to do it where as David was very polite and got job done in one and half days. The job was to be done on Saturday but it was going to rain so he came on Friday and got majority of the work done on that day. Then he came on Saturday but weather was really bad it rain all day so nothing could be done. So he came on Sunday and got remaining part of the work done. Very pleased with his work and I am happy to recommend him to other people.

Remove the old patio and lay new paving plus gardning Landscape Gardening
We are very pleased with the quality of the work in the front and back garden. David removed the old turf in the front garden, the old patio and flags in the back. He laid new turf in both gardens and a patio area. He is honest, committed and reliable. He is tidy, clean and always try his best to please his customers. I would definitely recommend him to others and will not hesitate to hire him again in the future.

Garden project - extended lawn, decking and paving Landscape Gardening
David and George totally transformed both my front and back gardens. The job consisted of removing old turf, bricks and stone chippings and replacing with a paved patio area, raised pond, decking and new lawns. They always turned up on time, kept in touch when anything changed and I have had many compliments on the new look. David is keen to ensure the customer is always happy with any work done and I have no hesitation in recommending him for a similar job.

Driveway remodelled and back garden landscaped Landscape Gardening
Dave did the following job for us: laid a patio, installed composite decking, laid a children's play area with bark, built 2 sleeper flowerbeds, laid stones on the front driveway , laid pebbles at the entrance to the driveway and also did some plastering work inside the property. We were very happy with the overall quality of work.
He is very experienced and skilled. In terms of value for money he was very good and we have no hesitation in recommending him for future jobs. We have already asked him to quote for other bits of work.

David turned up when he said he would and worked hard, doing long days. His plastering was great and he did a good job with the scratch coat to level a leaning wall. The job took a little longer than expected, but it worth the effort to get a good finish. Thanks David!

Downstairs cloakroom Plastering
We hired Dave Cookes as he was local to us, and responded so quickly. He turned up when he said he was going to do. He has done a great job of skimming our cloakroom. It wasn't the easiest job as there are hot water pipes in the wall. We are really pleased with the result, and would definitely recommend him to other potential customers.

Plastering work in 3 bedroom house Plastering
We hired Dave as he was local to us to do skimming and patching job in our new house. He skimmed 3 bedroom ceilings, porch/ landing/ stairs and plenty of patching work as we were chasing switches to 1 foot height. Dave was a pleasure to deal with, he was always very chirpy, reliable and flexible. He kept us updated on the progress. He is honest and won’t make you have work done that doesn't need to be done. He charged us very reasonable rates. We were really happy with the work he did and would recommend him to anyone.

Bathroom Ceiling Plastering
I would highly recommend David as he has done a superb job. Originally I thought that I would have to have the entire ceiling skimmed. But he pointed out that the damaged portion of the ceiling could be patched, so saving me money and inconvenience. He was prompt and very tidy. He’s also very personable, I would have no hesitation in using his services again.

Dave has recently done some plastering in our hall, stairs and landing. His response to our request for a plasterer was almost immediate and he came out to see us within 24 hours to give us a quote. Within one week he had completed the work! Dave was friendly and cleared up very well after himself. We were so pleased with the work he has done and at a good price too. We cant recommend Dave enough and we will definately be asking him if he would do other plastering jobs for us over the next year. Thanks Dave Cooke!

Replaster around fireplace Plastering
Dave did an excellent job of fitting and plastering around our new cast iron fire surround - the job wasn't made easy as neither the wall, surround nor the existing stone lintel were level! He arrived on time, tidied up after and gave good advice regarding aftercare. Would recommend him to anyone.

Dave has done an excellent job of the cement rendering the chimney and plastering to a brilliant smooth finish.. I like things done to a high standard and Dave delivered.
When we came across a issue (wooden lintel above fire place) it was resolved straight away, with no extra cost or fuss.
Came on time, worked till it was done, clean tidy, trustworthy and friendly.
I would recommend and will have him work for me again.

Plaster hall, staircase and landing Plastering
Dave did a great job plastering my hall, stairs and landing. Of all the plasterers who have worked on my house he was definitely the best. The finish was incredibly smooth which was no mean feat given the huge area and also small crevices he had to negotiate. He was also clean and tidy and trustworthy. I had no hesitation giving him a key and leaving him to get on with it while I was at work. I would definitely recommend him to anyone requiring plastering to be done. Experience definitely shows!

Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder Driveways
David Cooke carried out widening of the driveway, resurfacing in block-paving, rebuilding of a dry-stone wall and construction of stone paving and steps. The quality of the work was excellent, it was on time and on budget. In my opinion, David's strengths are versatility and attention to detail and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder Plastering
Recently David widened my drive, and lanscaped two gardens in properties I let out. He has also pointed two chimney stacks, plastered several rooms, repaired a long-standing gable end that has been blighted by damp. replaced facias and sorted the problem by exploring every possible cause. His attention to detail is faultless. "It's got to be right," quoted more often than I can recall. The qaulity of his finish is superd. He can turn his hand to most aspects of building. I can thoroughly recommend Mr Cooke. Keep him fuelled on cups of tea and he'll keep at until "sorted".
