"Our overall experience was good but they were short in staff and took a long time to get what started out to be a relatively project. It" took about a month or so for not being able to use the room just because this one person running the company and people are quitting on her. It was like difficulty of people to turn off when they were supposed to turn off. They did a good job but their punctuality and staying up to schedule was not good. The quality of their work was excellent. She made a lot of apologies that had to do with scheduling and people quitting. They always have different excuses because of that. Price was good.

"We can highly recommend of (5546 Road, Blanchardville, Wisconsin 53516, (608) 558-0944).We" have had work on a number of projects in different buildings: patching plaster walls, finishing , and texturing plaster walls. We have valued his work for final appearance, high standards for work, and cleanliness. We would recommend for new construction or remodeling.

Dear Angie: How important is it to repair plaster before repainting? Our ceilings have peeling paint that we’re pretty sure was caused by past water damage. Since the water problem is no longer an issue, can we simply repaint the ceilings or should we first repair any underlying plaster damage? – Sara S., Elgin, Illinois

My sister-in-law uses brite white toothpaste and rubs it into those small holes. No prep, no sanding.

I've used wall liner (it applies like wallpaper only thicker) to cover a multitude of "wall sins" over the years. In my opinion it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. It doesn't look cheap or tacky, it's inexpensive, non-labor intensive and not messy to install.

I used it for the first time about 15 years ago to cover a faux brick tile on my lower kitchen walls that couldn't be removed. It was either tear the wall down or take a chance on $40 worth of wall liner. It did the job beautifully and lasted. Since then I've used it to cover paneling, a badly gouged wall after a kitchen remodel and a wall that looked like a pegboard after floor to ceiling shelving was removed.

Friends and family (and realtors!) have been amazed by the transformation after applying this simple inexpensive product. 


Remember, you not only have to remove the popcorn texture, but also redo the ceiling in some other texture.

Price will depend on several factors:

1) how much the contractor you choose hates removing popcorn or textured ceilings - some charge $1 or so/SF extra just because they hate it. There are even some who bid total drywall replacement cheaper than removing the popcorn, so you have to first find contractors who are happy to do that work, or your prices will be out of the realistic range

2) if the popcorn predates about 1990, then it could likely have asbestos in it, which doubles or triples the price, and in many cases uncapsulating it with a spray coating and then removing the drywall entirely is actually cheaper than all the protective measures necessary if it is scraped off. 

3) whether the popcorn is primarily gypsum and vermiculite (comes off REAL easy) or was the plaster of paris variety, which takes a fair amount of soaking to soften it enough to scrape off

4) what type of finish you are replacing it with - if a textured ceiling, slapcoat, knockdown finish or paneling, not real problem. If you want to go with a perfectly smooth ceiling (generally a bad idea as any variations in the drywall on a ceiling surface really shows up dramatically), then it will demand a lot of care in preparing the scraped surface, and a complete surface drywall compound skim coat to smooth out the scrapes and gouges from the removal process.

5) what underlying conditions are - if there is a lot of furniture to move around (should go to adjacent rooms) or cover and work around, high-quality rug or hardwood floor to super-protect or such, will drive cost up.

I have seen costs run from as low as $0.60/SF to $1.25/SF (for removal only). Generally, remove and recoat with a surface texture of some kind (anything but smooth) and paint will run you about $2.50-3.50/SF.

Now the bad news - if asbestos containing, can run from $5-10/SF. Many homeowners in that situation go the other legal route - have it encapsulated with an asbestos-rated sealant by an asbestos contractor, then paint it and leave it for the next homeowner to decide what to do about it. Some contractors encapsulate it and then put a 1/4" thick drywall layer over it - this usually looks like a disaster unless it has a VERY rough textured finish on it, because putting drywall sheet over a rough surface like popcorn invariably means a wavy surface commonly looks like a gently rolling ocean surface.


Plaster reviews in Madison


and her staff were extremely capable and cooperative. I wanted to get my paint job done before new carpeting was installed since I only wanted to remove everything once. I was so appreciative that they made this happen, although it even involved working on the weekend as they were pretty backed up with other work. The paint ...More job is beautiful. In one area which is very dark, noted that the paint was a little uneven and arranged to come back and apply another coat.
The job cost about $500 more than the estimate but I added to the plastering work as I decided to remove 2 old intercoms from and an old humidifier control box that no longer worked. You can't tell where the holes were! I didn't think the cost was unreasonable at all.
- March S.

It went really well. called me back in a timely way. He was very busy but fitted me in. I was very grateful as we were in a hurry. He came when he said he would and worked fast but carefully. Pleased all the way around.
- Kristin D.

and company took on a very large project for us. We recently moved into a 100+ year old house. It looked like the basement hadn't been cleaned or repainted since the house was first built. It was very cave-like. The spiders, vermin, and grime were fully in charge.
I did much of the surface cleaning, for prep. ...More But the crew did the rest. Specifically, they -
1. Filled in the cracks that had developed over the years on the facade of the plaster that lines the foundation,
2. Spayed the entire basement with ammonia, to mold,
3. Removed the old, yucky insulation between the foundation and the basement ceiling, silicone caulked any gaps behind it, and replaced with new insulation,
4. Spray-primed and -painted the basement ceiling,
5. Scraped the walls and floor,
6. Primed and painted the plaster walls, and
7. Painted the floor.
The basement looks and feels great. We noticed a few minor issues after the crew left, but 's excellent lead man Pat was back within a few days to address them, no problem. If anything, Pat has a higher standard for what defines a 'great job' than I do. He errs on the side of doing more, which is especially great given that we had negotiated a flat fee at the outset of the project.
It was a pleasure getting to know these folks. I'm sure we will see them again for the next beyond-DIY painting project we have.
- Michael C.

was fast with response to our request, gave us a detailed and prompt quote and worked hard to fit our schedule. At first the sticker price was intimidating, but there isn't a minute that we regret our investment with . He treated our home as if it was his own, gave very helpful input with decision ...More making and by the time we had to leave town for extended travel, we were more than comfortable with him finishing up the project as discussed in our absence. He was thoughtful in all he approached and did a tremendous job down to rehanging our blinds for us since we were out of town and asking if he should turn down the air conditioner in our absence.
The only unfortunate bit is that our house has now been painted and we won't have a lot of indoor projects to give him in our home in the near future. There is always the exterior down the road. Thank you, .

- Mary G.

They were absolutely amazing. It was beautiful and still is. They knew exactly what we needed. They had great ideas and they were easy to talk with. They were very, very clean. They did it while we were gone and so when we came back we didn't even know. They aired it out so it didn't smell like paint because we have small children. We ...More wouldn't even have known had we not seen the ceilings before.
- Amanda T.

did a beautiful job on my bathroom and he was a real pleasure to work with from start to finish. He made design and color suggestions. He worked quickly and neatly. He went out of his way to get the work done in a timely manner as this was my only bathroom. He does quality work at a very reasonable price.
- deborah B.

I had rebuild the steps to my front porch. He was on time, the craftsmanship was excellent and I'm thrilled with the result. This is the 2nd time I've used him. I had him do some carpentry and plaster work on a bathroom remodel last year (bigger job - $1200). I was also very pleased with that work and thus called on ...More him again. The outcome of the previous job was also very finished and professional.
- susan S.

Wonderfully! Hino is a professional and an articulate worker. He isn't satisfied until the job is not only finished completely and to the client's satisfaction, but also to his strict criteria. He also accommodates my schedule as well as my toddler's napping schedule so that there is little or no disruption to ...More our daily household routine. arrived at exactly the time we agreed, we discussed the work that needed to be done, and he went to work moving furniture, laying down drop cloths, and prepping for the job. The plaster/drywall tape repair work was the messiest part of the job and he told me in advance so that we could choose to be out of the house to avoid he dust and smell. After that dried, he went to work priming the walls and painting. The repair work was well done. The painting looks beautiful! My dog loves him and chooses to hang out in the room is painting. My son loves him too and likes to watch him work. is gracious to put up with them both.
