Plastering reviews in Edwardsville

    Premier Finishing
    Premier Finishing was great! After some water damage to our kitchen, they came to fix some bubbled plaster and some wood around our window frame. We were overwhelmed with this unexpected home repair was were hoping to save money where we could. Premier Finishing was really understanding and worked with us to establish what work was best for them to do vs. what we could do by ourselves. They were able to very quickly complete the repairs and prime the walls. John is very kind and Premier did a really great job. They made this minor home disaster bearable.

    A E Finishing
    Can't say enough good things about these guys. They are artists! The job turned out beautifully. Very thorough and reasonable on their quote. I think the A E should stand for Amazing and Excellent. Thanks Aaron, John and Bruce.

    Irish Construction
    The pictures speak for themselves.

    When Tony and a couple of his workers came out to give us a quote, they looked at all the work that we wanted to be done, and quickly gave us a quote for about 3K less than another company had quoted us. It seemed like a great deal at the time, so we said ok. The work to be done was to smooth out the heavy texturing in the living room and dining room, skim a couple small hallways and a couple small walls in the kitchen, fill in three 10" holes from lights in the bedroom ceilings, fill in large holes from two bathroom cabinets, fill in holes from the bathroom lights, plaster over a small hole under the mailbox slot, and repair a damaged cove molding. I said that I would remove the small cabinets in the bathrooms, and remove the wallpaper paste that was in the bathrooms before they worked in there. We all agreed on everything and they left. 
    Tony said that they would start the work in the living room the next day, so that night I removed the baseboards so that the new plaster could go all the way to the floor. When I came home that night I found out that all of the work was done that day, not only the living/dining room. At the time it was a pleasant surprise, until I noticed that they had plastered over the wallpaper paste in the bathrooms. When there were getting ready to leave it was later, and getting dark outside. Since so many lights were removed in so many rooms it was hard to see the issues with the work. They asked if there was anything else to be done, and since I didn't notice anything at the time, they left. 
    The next day we started looking around the house, and started noticing several issues. The plaster in the living room was "pasted" onto the walls, so the electrical sockets are now sunk into the walls, not at the level they should be. The bottom edge was also very jagged, and there were sections that were so high that even after the baseboards would of been re-installed there would be 1" gaps in the plaster. In the hallways where the walls were skimmed the baseboards were never removed, and the plaster was covering them, so if they were ever removed it would crack the plaster and it would be uneven. The plaster over the mailbox hole and the cove molding was also cracked. I called Tony, and he sent a couple guys out that did all the work I pointed out to them. We were happy with the work at the time, but then again, it was dark outside again and we couldn't really see that well. 
    About a week and a half later we were going to start painting all the walls. We saw that there were uneven spots in the plaster, random small holes all over the place, and spots of raised-up, excess plaster. We didn't want to deal with having any more workers in our house, so we spent about 30 man-hours sanding and scraping the walls to get the to the point we wanted. When we were getting ready to paint the cove molding, my wife saw that it didn't have a sand finish on it, like the rest of the molding did. When the cove molding was repaired for the second time, I was told that the finish comes from the paint, and not to worry about it. I didn't know any better, but my wife did, and she was the one who had pointed it out to me.
    I had gotten a few calls from Irish Construction over the previous week asking to put a review here on Angie's List. I didn't really want to, because I wasn't very satisfied with the final work, and we finished all the scraping and sanding ourselves. My wife had called so that someone  could come out and put the finish on the molding, but the morning the work was supposed to be done, I received a call from the secretary saying that they would have to reschedule because Tony was caught up with another job. I called the day after that to find out when we could reschedule, and was told to call Tonys cell phone. When I called him about it, and he realized that he would be coming out to my house for the third time, he got upset. I told him that I wasn't happy with the work, but all I wanted was to get the sand finish on the molding and be done with it. When he asked me about why I hadn't put a review on here I told him it was because we had to put in so much work ourselves to finish the job, that he wouldn't like the review. He then began YELLING at me, saying that he has over twenty years of experience in construction, and that I didn't know what I was talking about. He also said that he gave me a great deal, so I should be happy that so much work was done. I then said that I didn't think that the quality of the work was worth the $5000 we paid. We went back and forth for about 5 minutes, until he ended by saying that he would be there in a few days to finish the work, and then he hung up on me. 
    At this point I was very upset, so I tried calling him back several times. After the third or fourth time I left a message saying that I didn't want him in my house, and that I would get another company to finish what he started. I also told him that he would finally get the honest review he was looking for. After I had time to cool off I called him back. I'm guessing Tony listened to the message and knew that he didn't want an honest review online, because he said he would have a couple guys out to put the finish on.
    A couple days later, Tony called me and said that his "best two guys" were coming to work on the molding, for the third time. By the time I got home from work it was late, so I didn't even look at it until the next morning. What I saw that morning was terrible. The sand finish wasn't even the same texture as the rest of the molding, and there were 1/2" deep gouges in the molding and ceiling. I was furious, but waited until I had time to cool off to call, so that I wouldn't just start yelling. When I called I got a hold of the secretary, who said that Tony was gone for Thanksgiving until the 4th of December, but that she would pass my message along when he returned. I knew that we wouldn't be doing any work over the holiday either, so I said that was fine.
    On the third of December, I called to make sure that the message was passed along. I was told to call Tonys cell because he had returned the previous night, but because of my busy schedule, I just asked if he could call me back and leave a message on when someone would be out to fix the molding for the fourth time. Today, on the Forth of December, 2013, I received the following email:
    Tony would like me to tell you that it will cost $450.00 per day to come back to your house to do work that was not in your contract.  Tony did the job $3,000 cheaper than your other bids.  As it stands he made very little profit from this job.
    Thanks,Margaret
    I replied, saying that the cove molding was in the contract, and that we wanted someone to come out again because the work was done so poorly, but that we will be using another company to finish the work. 
    To sum it all up, Irish Construction has been to our house three times to fix their work, and wants $450/day to come out for a fourth time fix what should of been done the second trip out. The prep work that was done all over the house was terrible. The cleaning that was done after the work was also terrible. I would only ever hire them to do work that doesn't need any prep, and that is impossible to mess up. Tony, the owner, has no professionalism. Even after all the calls and pictures I have emailed him about the work, he has only ever been to our house once, on the day he gave us the quote.
