    I am very happy with the workmanship and the team were very polite and pleasant. I have invited Peter back to do another project next week and based on today's experience I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

  • House refurb

    Intially we had real problems getting someone to turn up and quote .... we used mybuilder site and we're contacted by Peter.... he turned up when he said he would and talked through the job with us offering alternatives where he thought there was a better way of achieving the desired result but leaving us to make the decision. In doing the job proper Peter and his staff were courteous and respectful of our home and again turned up when they said they would and stayed until what needed doing was done. Usual story with work like this there were a couple of surprises and plans changed but this was no drama and Peter was happy to chat through options again leaving us feeling pretty confident that we hadn't been railroaded into doing unnecessary work and that we were in control. All in all Peter has a professional attitude which is all to often absent these days and he clearly takes pride in his work. We would have no trouble recommending him or using him again in the future.

  • skimming

    Peter was very quick to respond to my post and priced the job there and then. The work was completed to an exceptionally high standard and along with his labourer, he was a pleasure to have on site.

I needed the work done fast and Peter completed the work by the end of that week. Brilliant, very pleased & very reasonable price . Peter was honest & upfront with the work that was required & explained everything. I would highly recommend Peter Gay for his quality of workmanship & honesty & would definitely use him again. Thanks again Peter

    Very positive... responded promptly and was on time to provide very balanced advice (clearly not just trying to push up the cost). Work completed to a very pleasing standard. I recommend Peter for similar work.

  • Exterior plaster repair to 8-10 bay windows of flats

    After six frustrating months looking for a builder, I found the perfect one on and within an hour, I had a highly recommended builder Peter Gay on site, yes in an hour. As another contractor had been booked to complete the final section of the project and it required scaffolding, he had an exacting time slot for his part of the project. I quickly came an agreement with Peter on an exceptionally good quote, which was more than half our lowest advised costing. With that agreed, he and his team started and finished within the agreed time slot a month or so later. Even though he was faced with unexpected problems that required immediate attention and extra time on site plus materials. In addition, his team were most considerate to all the resident of the 26 affected flats, kept the site safe, clean and clear and left it as he found it.
    So to conclude,the quality of his work was outstanding, his team was in no way disruptive, our end cost was higher due unexpected issues but he in no way took advantage this and his final invoice was extremely fair and in line with the initial quote. I have no fear in recommending Peter Gay and his team and offer the highest recommendation to anyone considering similar work. He will be certainly the very first person I will contact for any similar future projects planned for our four storey building and ground as well as my own home.

  • Damp proof course in internal wall

    Peter provided a reasonable estimate and completed the work a few days later. I am very pleased with his attitude.

  • Repair kitchen walls

    Highly recommended, job was completed quickly and to a good standard.

  • 're plastering internal walls

    I can only praise peter for the quality work he has Done for me, he fitted me in at short notice, and introduced other trades to me , who have all done a good job.
    I can highly recommend him, and the work he does. Thanks very much peter.

  • skim 3 bed

    peter is a excellent plastrer and has done a very good job at
    a very competitive price if need a plaster I would use him again

  • Plaster walls

    After searching for plasterers and not knowing who to use as you hear horror stories. I cam across Peter and read his reviews, so I decided to go with him. I'm glad I did. He was on site to give a quote, and his price was good. A few days into the job It turned in to a much bigger job that we both didn't expect and at no fault of peters but due to damp walls and dangerous electrics from previous owner. This did not phase Peter, he sourced the other trades needed to complete the work. I can only praise peter even tho he was busy he fitted me in, and the quality of work is unreal. He made the whole process easy and stress free. The other trades he sourced have all done a good job to. I'm now worry free as everything is safe and legal.
    I can highly recommend him, and the work he does. Thanks very much peter.

  • Exterior re rendering

    Peter would be the first to admit this particular job was not as straightforward as we first assumed.

    Peter's quotation was not the lowest I received, but given that he assured me that he would be clean, efficient and the finished job would exude quality I asked him to proceed.

    Hacking off went far better and cleaner than I had expected.However, once he applied the render I spotted an issue Was not happy with. Peter explained he too was not happy and decided with my approval to hack off once more. Unfortunately this is when the weather turned for the worse and the work delayed as a result.

    Peter also explained the original build was not as should be with the decorative quoin blocks not leaving ideal depth for rendering. With assistance from a suppliers rep., all in the end all came good and true to his word the end result is very pleasing to the eye.

    Would I recommend Peter Gay to others? Absolutely!

  • Plastering, Coving & Skirting Board

    When I moved to Pembroke I didn't know anyone who I could trust to plaster my new home. I came across Peter Gay Plastering on My Builder and read his reviews which gave him 100% positive feedback so I asked him if he would give me a quote. He came to my home at the exact time he said he would and on meeting him for the first time, you knew he was a genuine guy. On quoting me for the work I wanted done throughout the home he gave me sound advice and actually saved me money by explaining what was necessary and what was not. This I found reassuring as I have come across workmen who just want to take your money for the sake of it and Peter is NOT one of those. On the day Peter started he ensured all my belongings were covered and proceeded to carry out the plastering of my home. As the days went on I got to know Peter more and his apprentice Jason. They have a chemistry which works well and this is transferred in to the excellent job they have done in my new home. Nothing is too much trouble for them either and they have helped me tremendously with getting my new home the way I want it. As you would expect from a trusted tradesman he also contacted a really good Carpenter Chris and Painter Courtney to help with the other jobs I needed doing. As I said I didn't know anybody I could trust when I moved to Pembroke but Peter Gay Plastering is the man you need to carry out the work for you if you want an excellent job done by a trustworthy Tradesman. Thank you Peter for everything.

    Very happy with Peter Gay, his work looks efficient, he did that which he said he would, and he 'communicated' [the latter sadly missing in building operatives here in the west of Wales].

    Quick and efficient a tidy job talks the talk but also can walk the walk.

  • New hallway ceiling

    Peter was quick to respond to the job request and came to look at the job the next day, he gave a good quote and started the work the following week. The work was completed in a day and we are very pleased with the final result. As you would expect from an experienced tradesman, the plaster finish is very flat and smooth. We would use Peter again if we had more plastering work to be done.

  • plaster 2 walls inside, and redo some corner. small job

    Peter did a marvelous job skimming (and some plastering) the walls in our house. It was a difficult job as some walls are pretty old and rough with cracks, cavities etc, but Peter did a professional job with an excellent finish and clearly knows his stuff as he also gave good advice. He arrived and completed the entire job in good time. It was easy to organise the job day etc and we're very happy with the result. Would highly recommend and would have no trouble giving a reference.

  • Few rooms and ceilings

    Great job, professional finish. Always on time, does what he says hes going to. Highly recommended! Cheers Pete!

  • Kitchen/Dining Room

    Peter is an excellent Plasterer, and is very honest about the work necessary, timescales, costs etc...
    To be honest a positive rating is not adequate for Peter, superb would be more accurate.


    Thank you so much Peter for your excellent advice. Although we did not use your skills this time we will keep you in mind Just in case.

  • Plaster patches in internal wall

    Very pleased, Peter came out promptly and offered advice and alternatives for the work I required.

  • Plastering required in a Newport bungalow

    Peter did an excellent job for me, plastering and repairing a wall and some other patches. He responded very quickly, rang me to discuss what was required and also arranged for an electrician to fix a wiring problem at very short notice.

  • Ceiling skim over artex

    I initially hired Peter to skim plaster an artex ceiling in my home. The room is now completed and there is no sign of artex visible. The plastering is even and of a high standard/finish. He took great care to cover the walls, ceiling coving and carpet of the room (along with sealing the door with polythene to prevent splashes), prior to skim. He also covered the carpet from my front door up to the room to be decorated. The job took about 6 hours and on completion he removed all protective materials, leaving the house as clean as on his arrival. The only area I needed to paint was the new plasterwork, as all other areas has been protected from splashes.
    I shall be using Peter again, as all the ceilings in my house are artex...
    He did an excellent job. Thanks Peter!

  • Plaster or board over art artex ceilings , 2 rooms .

    We are very happy with Peters standard of work carried out at our home. He is very good at his trade and advised us as to the best course of action.

We will be using his services again in the near future to carry on our property renovation.

  • Hall ceiling

    Absolutely Great bunch of guys I asked Peter and his Team to look at my Parents house which was in need of work. Peter and the Guys finished the plastering and cleaned and put the furniture back !! Great Service they have even booked him to render the house.
    Many Thanks Peter... Kevin Sandra and Bill

  • plastering

    Very punctual, very clean and tidy working, and he did a good job skimming the bedroom , I would recommend him .

  • Repointing 2 side walls of double story extension

    I hired Peter to remove render from back of house and do repointing but he was unable to do it until October as he was so busy, always a good sign where builders are concerned and I was glad to wait as he was friendly, knew what he was talking about and explained things in detail. Unfortunately I have had a major problem with a new fibreglass roof that was fitted incorrectly, Peter even came to have a look at it for me and gave me some good advice.
    The outcome was that the roof has to be redone asap. I have now got scaffolding up for the roof so wanted to have the re-rendering done at the same time to save on costs.
    Peter is unable to do it at this time but completely understood when I explained and said I had to give the job to another builder.
    It was so good to come across someone so honest and willing to help even though there was no profit in it for him. I would highly recommend him to anyone and will certainly contact him again if I need anything doing.

  • Library area in School in Neath

  • no. 3

    Peter came out to look at the damp and other plastering issues the very next day after the initial contact. I asked for separate estimates for the different jobs, which arrived via email within 48 hours. After a lot of thinking about doing the other jobs ourselves we contacted Peter for the damp and he said he could do us the next day after he finished the present job. He turned up with his "son" and I hardly had time to put the kettle on before the job was done. Very tidy cleared up mess although i told him to leave it with the rest of my mess. Although we decided to do the other job's ourselves Peter took time out to tell us the best / proper way to do it, this was well above what was expected as he had no obligation to act as a consultant. I am very please with Peter and will keep his number safe for future reference. Thank you My Builder for giving me the right man for the job. EXCELLENT.

  • new build

    Peter is a very good communicator and seems to anticipate the customers requirements. On my job he was punctual and very dedicated to leaving a professional job. Our build was a new build and the walls were of Durisol block construction. He rendered the whole house from top to bottom.
    I will use him again, we are more than pleased with his service

  • Plastering 3 ceilings

  • Repair and redecorate water damaged ceiling

    Peter arrived very promptly and gave me a fair price for the job. He completed the job efficiently and to my complete satisfaction. I would not hesitate in using him again.

  • damp proofing

    He explains what needs doing easy to get on with. Did a good job & he's coming back next year to do other work. Well recomended turns up on time & came on a sunday to fit it in with us.

  • penetrating damp - possibly pointing -engineering brick

    Peter's service was excellent. I contacted several builders to quote for this work and I decided to choose Peter because he was able to demonstrate a clear understanding of the problem and he identified the cause immediately. The work was completed within the agreed time and to a very high standard. I would not hesitate to recommend Peter as he is trustworthy and reliable. I will definitely use his services again. A genuine experienced professional.

  • Rendering, repointing chimney

    We are very pleased with the rendering & plastering works that Peter completed. The price was very reasonable.

  • Bedroom ceiling

    Very pleased with the standard of work. Very helpful and polite, even honoured a quote for an additional job. Definitely be contracting Oeter again for future work.

  • Plaster 4x3 room

    Peter provided a superb finish to our new room, got on with the job, no mess, no moaning, and I can honestly say, one of the best plasterers I've ever used - and I've used a lot over the years trying to find the right one. He comes with many decades of specialist experience and knowledge and could otherwise be considered a master-plasterer without too much trouble!

    I have had some very bad experiences over the years of the trades, crap jobs, betrayals of trust, dishonesty, etc, and I'm glad to say, Peter, as a good and honest professional, has somewhat restored my confidence in that there are still genuine good and honest tradesmen out there and he is certainly one of them.

    Will definitely be using Peter again (already given him our external rendering work) and can very highly recommend him to anyone wishing for a top quality job by a real, genuine, time-served plasterer and specialist renderer.

    Please support our good and honest tradesmen and hire Peter - you won't be disappointed.

  • Damp proofing/tanking

    Good job and reliable

  • Plaster ceiling approx 4m x 7m

    Peter did an excellent job. We are very pleased. His communication was excellent which is unusual with tradesmen generally in this part of the world. We can thoroughly recommend him.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Peter plastered the inside of my garage conversion, built some garden walls and has done other assorted bits of plastering. He is a tremendous guy, always on time with a fair price and does a good job. I can't fault him and definitely recommend him.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Peter did a bit of internal plastering but the main job he did for me was putting an external insulation layer around my stone brick house. This was covered with a kind of mesh then a mineral based render on top to waterproof it. This was done mid last year, so the waterproofness has definitely been tested since it was finished. He was easygoing and tidied up after the job was done. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a plasterer or external insulation installer.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Peter did a good work. I had no problems during the time he was working for me. First class plasterer.
