MS Plastering and Building Services

  • Victorian house plastering

    NEVER EVER AGAIN!!!! Initially started off very professional and did a good job on the plastering even though it took about 4 months to finish off the last wall, but still gave more work to him which included fitting in a brand new expensive kitchen and central heating work. Discussed and agreed price with Mark Still who without our knowledge sub contracted the jobs to Mark Dean from MD Plasterers (also on MYBUILDER.COM). Kitchen started 17/10/2012 and still incomplete to this day. No hot water from tap which are still loose, shoddy workmanship, bad tiling, leak under the sink with missing invoices which he has demanded payment for. Paid him £2000 for fitting the kitchen as he promised of it's completion in November. Central heating system still leaking from several places (11 radiators and counting). Our tools were taken from site by contractor which has been reported to the police. When we were out of town attending a funeral our locks had even been changed without our knowledge (2nd hand lock but charged for brand new) and keys held until we paid the rest of the money for a job that hadn't been completed. Eventually got keys back and Mark Still did come back several times but rarely attended when he said he would (probably because he was on another job in Market Drayton). Once he realized how bad the job had been done he refused to come back and blamed his sub contractor, advising us to pursue the sub contractor as it was nothing to do with him. Mark Still quoted us for the jobs, Mark Still is the one who we paid and Mark Still is the only one we were in contact with during the whole process. He led us to believe that it was his company doing the work when in fact he sub-contracted the work to somebody else and failed to tell us. Now that his sub contractor has shown bad workmanship Mark Still has washed his hands of the situation and claims that this has nothing to do with him. Today he turned up to my house with a scruffy looking woman who claimed to be an independent witness telling us to not contact him again and left the keys. Mark Still did not have the guts to actually deal with the situation himself! Has left us out of pocket and damaged our materials which we will have to replace. We will have to pay out more money for somebody to come and complete/re do work which Mark Still was paid to do. Such a big shame as Mark came across as such a decent, hardworking man and were happy to give him more jobs but he has cheated and lied to us, leaving us very much in a bad situation. Over promised & under-delivered!

  • Living room plastering

    Good Job, competetive quote.

  • Skim Room 9x12ft

  • Living Room and Hallway/Landing quote

    Great job--rooms look great. Good price and job done quickly. Would work with this company again without hesitation.

  • Skimming walls and ceiling 15 x 15ft approx

    An excellent job. Would not hesitate to recommend.

  • Skimming of knocked through terraced living/dining room

    I used MS Plastering to skim my living room, dinning room and hallway. Mark visited and quoted me for the job quickly. He came across as very knowledgable and the quote given was very competative.

    Mark and his team worked solidly throughout both days of the job and really went the extra mile to make sure I would be happy with the end result. They all clearly care about their work and that a job is done properly, even if this means more work for them.

    Sheets were put down straight away and my carpet was left cleaner than it was before (despite me telling them it was being ripped up!). I am very happy with the work that was done and would definitely recommend them / use them again.

    BE WARNED THOUGH - make sure you have plenty of teabags!! :-)

  • Shower room refurbishment

    Mark and Dave did an excellent job in a tricky shower room. They worked tirelessly to make sure everything looked good and worked properly - even spending extra time making adjustments to the pipe work. We have used Mark's company twice and would highly recommend them.

  • Open up kitchen and dining room

    Excellent!! Very happy with everything. Both Mark and Dave went out of their way to make sure I was happy at all times. Asked them to plaster my hall at the same time, and again the finish was superb. Highly recommend and will use them for my requirements in the future.

  • Take down& rebuild brick outhouse& repair attached wall

    Mark and his colleague Dave did a great job on taking down and rebuilding the shed using the old brick and roofslates - the brickwork's so good that the shed is now in better condition that the house! Will be using Mark and Dave again in the next couple of weeks to rebuild bits of the bathroom wall and the garden wall and fitting some internal doors. My next door neighbours are also having a wall built by Dave, so I would definitely recommend them to others.

  • Repair/re-building of brick pillar (part of a fence)

    Fantastic. Completed on time to agreed price. Very clean and tidy finish. I've got no problem in recommending Mark and will be using him again for future projects both at home and work.

  • build garage

    hired mark for the job and realy pleased he started the job the day after he came to give me a quote. dave the brickie worked none stop and did a realy good job even though it was a bit of a pain in parts due to some of the tight spots that the job involved but he just got on with it.

  • Garage base

    Focused on the job, tidy and fully professional.


  • Bricklayer

    I hired Mark to do the job and have to say that he was professional in his approach and I found him to be honest, trustworthy and excellent in the way the task was undertaken. I would recommend him and any future jobs that require doing, I will have no hesitation in hiring him again. Alan Myers

  • Groundworks, drainage and paving

    Mark completed the job to my satisfaction.
    A sign of a good tradesman is the speed at which problems or potential problems are dealt with to the client's satisfaction.
    Mark is conscientious and dedicated to his work.
    I will certainly be hiring him again for future work.

  • Plastering kitchen walls and small section in bedroom

    Mark worked to a very high standard. He arrived on time and worked almost non-stop each day until he was satisfied that the job was done properly. He and his colleague Andy clearly wanted to make sure they did work they could be proud of. We would happily recommend msbuild to others who want an excellent plastering job.
