What started as removal of paneling, turned in to a complete makeover for our family room. Dave was up to the task. He and his son installed drywall, smoothed our popcorn ceiling and installed hardwood flooring. The room looks amazing. They are honest and detailed. Would definitely use him again.

He was professional and efficient. He made the repairs or diagnosed the problems (GFI causing light switch for light over tub to not work). The major work that we had was a drywall repair of a popcorn ceiling which he suggested only needed to be primed and painted. We were able to do this ourselves. The downside was we had contracted for 4 hours of work, but with that off the table we only had a couple of hours of work for him. He did offer to return in the spring to work the remaining 2 hours that we paid for. Definitely a stand up guy, however, he does not do drywall repairs.

It was very nice to have all on my list taken care of in one day. ---Reinstall cabinet door, install stair handle and shelf, cement window well bricks, paint baseboards, touch up paint walls, remove ceiling light fixture and patch dry wall, wash windows, weed yard, put heavy sofa downstairs, move dresser downstairs. Whew! It was great to have it all done at once!

Plastered old vents on ceiling and textured them to match the existing ceiling. He did a great job in duplicating the existing ceiling .

Work started on a Monday and completed that Thursday. Part of our ceiling had fallen in due to age and most of Monday was spent completing the demo of the rest of the ceiling and adding strips to the ceiling joists because they were uneven. Tuesday the new drywall and insulation were put up. Wednesday they added the texture to the ceiling and Thursday they painted the ceiling and installed and painted the crown molding. The end result looks great and I'm glad we had Mike add the crown molding. I plan to use him again for another project in our garage.

Work was performed efficiently. Bill cleaned up each work area perfectly. His plastering was so good you cannot see where ceilings were repaired (including one textured ceiling). Price was reasonable.

This was an Angies's Big Deal. I had hoped to have the ceilings painted too. However, Mike advised that they would not be able to do the ceilings and the above work in the time allotted for the deal. He said the ceilings were in good shape, with which I agreed, and suggested that perhaps I might want to think about just doing the walls. That seemed like a good idea. And, since the paint that I had purchased for the ceilings was white, I would be able to return it to the store and get my money back. I was grateful for the suggestion and it worked out very well.

They came when scheduled and did a good job on the patch. They had to match a textured ceiling and they were able to do that. They had to come back after the repair was dry to paint the ceiling. They were on time for that as well and did a good job on the painting as well as cleaning up after they were done.
Recent Review: It couldn't have gone better. The area was small, so we had a tough time getting a contractor who was willing to do a smaller job for a reasonable price. Tony was upfront and said that if we were willing to wait a few weeks, he could pair our job with something else in our area and keep the price down. He stayed in touch for a few weeks until he had another job lined up. Tony and his crew arrived on time and as scheduled. He had the work done quickly and exactly as described. They took care to tarp off the area and cleaned up as they left. I would definitely use Traeger Plastering again.
Recent Review: My husband and I were very pleased with the entire 5 week experience when working with Bob and would recommend him very highly. His work was excellent and completed in a timely manner. He was lovely to work with and provided us great insight with our projects. He had a number projects he was working on in our home and many that had rather intricate wood working which he completed with perfection. He was able to reuse our existing doors for our pocket doors and was very clear about pricing throughout the project. Bob also was so clean which I very much appreciated! The subcontractors he connected us with did a great job and were priced fairly. We consider ourselves lucky to have worked with Bob and look forward to working with him in the future!
Recent Review: My call regarding getting electrical work done was promptly returned. We set up a time for them to come out and give me an estimate. The 2 small jobs were done at that visit. The installation of the post lamp was a major project, as electric had to be run out into the yard, traversing a thick basement wall and being run beneath walkways. I was emailed an estimate for that work in a couple of days, and there were phone calls to me to insure that we both understood exactly what was to be done. I was called the morning of the day they were to come to install the post lamp, and they arrived promptly. The project involved lots of trenching and was not an easy installation. My yard was left in good shape where they had to trench. The work was completed in a timely manner. They were very professional and friendly. The quality of the work was excellent, using quality materials. They cleaned up very well after themselves and had me check the work to make sure I was satisfied. I was very satisfied and will use them again, and have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
Recent Review: My plaster dining room ceiling gave way and crashed onto my combo living/dining room hardwood floor. Chris was there right after the collapse and was able to rearrange his schedule so the he and the crew arrived the next day to tear down the rest of the ceiling that did not collapse and begin the process of installing a new ceiling. They hauled away the huge mess of a double plaster ceiling and coped with the mess of an old house that had been heated with coal. All aspects of the work were of the highest quality and he was able to finish ahead of schedule. I'm still working with my insurance company about the amount they'll pay and Chris has been very helpful in dealing with a reluctant adjustor.
Recent Review: If you’re looking for someone to work in your home who is honest, punctual, reasonable cost-wise, cleans up after the work day, and will work with you to bring about an idea you had, Aaron is it. I cannot say enough good things about this young man. His workmanship is exemplary. I showed him a picture of some shelving and he brought them to life. I asked him to build me a live edge table. Perfect. His attention to detail is spot on. Build out a wall for a fireplace, no problem.
Business Description: My business is a sole proprietorship;(I do all the work). No subcontractors. My primary service is painting; which I've done since the late 70's. I use my SS number to file my business returns, therefore, checks can be written to my name. I don't charge tax, therefore, I don't require licensing.
Trip charges (if any) are nominal & vary according to miles traveled to a particular jobsite. They are incorporated into the final cost. Estimates are free. Estimates are meant to give the customer a "ballpark" figure. Sometimes they could increase during the course of the job if the jobscope involves matters that were unforseen, as in wallpaper removal. Sometimes it goes expediently and sometimes it is labor intensive. My job is to give you the results that you want at the best possible cost to you.
Angie's List customers can choose either a 10% discount on labor or a free service call for something; i.e. a leaky toilet or dog needs attention,you need groceries delivered, or you need taken to the doctor's office & picked-up, snow shoveling, etc. Depends on the size of the initial job.
Fun,unique details may include that, on occasion,I may bring out cookies for my customers that my mother in law (who lives with us) baked. Or, I may sing during my work (as I'm in a Catholic choir). I think that's fun; at least it helps me get thru the day.
Important details include being clean & respectful of one's property. That's my goal & intention, as if it were my own home. I'm not sure if that's considered "boastful language", but, it is an important detail with my business. References are available upon request.
