did an incredible job on our home. He helped us choose colors, wall
and crown moulding that were perfect for each" individual room, yet brought the entire house together as a unified whole. He maintained the 1930s character of the house but also added contemporary touches. It was on the expensive side, but truly, truly worth it. The entire place is stunning.

"I observed some damage to my stucco exterior. It was 30 feet off the ground! Not many companies on Angies List advertise as stucco repair companies. Found this company" doing research. Contacted him and he returned my call quickly. Set up time for him to come over and look at the damage I observed. Initially it looked like a small inexpensive job. That was not the case, apparently the homebuilder or whoever had done the original stucco job did it poorly. The current covering just flaked off. The owner of
Lathe and Stucco explained he could just patch the faulty stuff but it would not look good, the entire area needed to be redone! Well that ment getting scaffolding to reach the 30 foot high area flaking off! It took two days to complete the job and I must say it looks very well done. It was expensive but it looks better than before. This guy does quality work!

Drywall and Plaster

Knowing how your interior walls are constructed and what they are made of can help you take better care of your home, as well as provide effective maintenance. You can make small repairs yourself, but the more extensive the job the more likely you'll need a drywall repair contractor to make the wall smooth again.

Plastering, Painting - Interior

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.

Declan was prompt, professional and best of all, an honest craftsman with a wealth of knowledge about plaster. We are in the initial phases of planning for a larger renovation so we have not yet contracted with Declan to provide services, but if you are looking for an honest tradesman and want to restore the beauty of plaster in certain areas, I would not hesitate to reach out to him.

- Scott H.

They did a very good job and were good to work with. It looked very nice when the work was complete.. I would use them again.
Only concern was their ad on Angies list indicates they take credit cards. When I went to pay, they informed me they don't and they knew their ad on Angies list was incorrect.

returned my call promptly, scheduled an estimate, and did the work within a week. His price was competitive (I needed a price that would be approved by my insurance company, and they did't have a problem with it; it was the lowest of 3 bids). The work was beautiful -- perfect scrolls!

and his assistant were a pleasure to work with. They were in and out within half a day, and cleaned up after themselves.

was great to work with. He recently refinished my old plaster ceilings that were cracking and chipping. He was very careful to move the furnishings to not cause any damage and even rehung our ceiling fan. There was one small area that we were not happy with and

I asked if they could come by my house for an estimate and they indicated to send pics and size. I prefer not to get an estimate this fashion so I did not go any further. This process works for some people but not me.
- Thomas M.

I was extremely happy with the services provided.
Newark Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
was punctual and courteous. He told me about the problem and situation and how he would repair and correct the problem. He explained what had caused the problem in the first place and how to prevent it in the future. He worked quickly, was very clean during the work and did not make a mess. Many others in the past had been pretty messy, but he was not. My opinion of his work is that he is detail oriented, which is always greatly appreciated. I would definitely hire him again not only for the plaster work, but also for painting and any other work he specializes in.
- Kathryn T.

We highly recommend this company. They are courteous, prompt and know their business.

came to talk with us the day after we called for an appointment and provided an estimate on the spot. He offered some good suggestions. It was obvious he was an expert. Since his price was reasonable, we agreed to have the stucco repaired. The crew arrived on time to repair the stucco, which had been damaged by water wicking up the wall from the ground. It was a mess. They did such a great job (in a way that would help prevent this from happening again) that we decided to have the house painted at the same time---also for a reasonable price. After the stucco had dried, a second crew of 6 workers painted the exterior of the house, including the trim. It took them only two days because there were so many workers!!! They were directed by

, the owner of the company, was also on the scene, dropping by periodically to check on quality and progress. We couldn't have asked for a better result---and we're fussy folks about quality. They're good people to work with.
