Recent Review: When we returned from our summer vacation, we found two leaks in our ceilings, two running toilets, two leaky faucets, a broken shower door, a door with an unreliable lock, a broken window, and several other problems. We hired a plumber to fix the toilets and sinks and a roofer to put on a new roof. But then we were left with the leaking shower wall, ceilings that need to be repaired, and many other problems. Back in 1992, Peter Stapell had re-plastered and painted our hallway walls and ceilings, and he had done an absolutely beautiful job. He's a perfectionist, and it shows in his work. We tracked him down and persuaded him to repair our ceilings. But first we asked him to help us figure out our shower leak(which had mystified us for a couple of weeks)and he determined that the water came out between the tiles. He did a beautiful job of re-grouting(most tile people don't want to re-grout old tiles)and that solved the problem. Then he fixed some broken tiles around our other bathroom sink(he knew how to cut the extra tiles we had saved to the right size and install them). We had thought we would need a new folding shower door because the rollers had broken off the old one, but Peter figured out how to attach new rollers(he has a lot of ingenuity and a lot of appropriate tools)and that was an easy solution. Then he replaced some faucet washers that the plumber had just installed but were leaking, and the kind he used stopped the leak. Then he got to the ceilings. We had had an estimate from another company for the ceiling work, and they would have insisted on repainting the whole ceiling in each case. They were both hallway ceilings that went around corners and extended all over the place, and it would have been time consuming, disruptive, and expensive to have the whole thing done. Peter was willing to try to do a limited repair. First, he did a perfect job of re-plastering. Then he found a place that sold the very same paint that had been used in 1992. He painted the repaired areas, and they blended in very nicely. No one would ever notice that there had been a repair. We were very pleased! Just today he's been working on installing a new doorknob and lock on our side door and repairing its broken glass. It's another great job.
