new and restored plaster throughout 100 yr old home

In addition to Kevin's own abilities he has assembled a team of staff that apply the same level of talent to every job they touch. Drywall installation, mudding, old style plaster-boarding and plastering, painting...

Kevin is on top of it all with a keen eye to detail and the bottom line. He's never shy to offer an idea that could make a positive difference even if it means charging less but never sacrificing quality.

You might think I like the guy... I do.

Hint: the best way to reach Kevin is by email or text.

Ceiling Repair

I had my family room pot lights replaced, which resulted in six large holes in my cathedral ceiling. Kevin Buckner called me within 24 hours after my online query and arranged to come a give me a quote the next day (Friday). He arrived on time with a professional appearance and demeanour and managed to fit my job into his schedule. He and his crew arrived EARLY on Monday morning (rare in contractors) and they quickly got to work. They finished the job on time and finished the work BEAUTIFULLY! Not only did they fix the holes, but patched up any cracks and nail pops that were visible. While it was inconvenient to have my family room out of commission for three days, the results were completely worth it. I would recommend Kevin for any drywall/plastering work. He and his guys know their stuff.

Plaster ceiling repair

Our house was built in the 1920's and our dining room has a cove ceiling. When a very large chunk of that ceiling fell, I called Kevin, based on the incredible reviews on Homestars. We were not disappointed! Very professional - start to finish. Dan did an incredible, seemless job. The ceiling looks fabulous. Thanks Dan, Shawn and Kevin.

Renew ceilings, walls, refinish basement, install bathrooms

We bought a 90 year old house in Hillcrest. With just one month between possession and moving in, we needed trades who could act quickly to get things ready.

Kevin took on plastering and painting and got the job done in time and on budget and it looked great.

When we realized Kevin did general contracting as well, we got him to take over subsequent renos including basement finishing and installing bathrooms. He had great ideas and solved a lot of tricky problems. His prices are fair and his enthusiasm is fantastic.

Overall Renovation

Kevin has touched every room in my 90 year old house near the beaches - from a complete main floor/kitchen/bathroom renovation to taking down a wall and re-building stairs to my basement - I wouldn't go anywhere else. Kevin is diligent, efficient and has a great eye for design. His ideas have continually saved me money and provided new options that I didn't think were possible.
When I have a new project - Kevin is always the first person I call.

Removal of Popcorn ceiling and replastering

We decided to remove the popcorn ceiling that covered most of our apartment (approx 700 square foot) and replace it with a normal smooth finish. Kevin arrived the morning after I contacted him, and the work began the very next day. The plasterer Dan did a superb job and we couldn't be happier with the work, which is flawless. Throughout the process Kevin and Dan were punctual, friendly and extremely hard-working. Kevin even took the time to help me move a light fitting in the bathroom and was full of helpful advice for my other ongoing reno projects. The work was completed on time and on budget and we feel very lucky to have found such a fantastic company. We would not hesitate to contact them for any further jobs we need doing in the future. Can't praise Buckner Plastering highly enough.

What could this company do to improve their services?
Probably expand so more people can benefit from their excellent work-ethic and skils!
Any advice to offer fellow homeowners facing a similar project?
It is a very messy job and the apartment will be covered in white plaster dust (from scraping off the old popcorn ceiling) during the work. We taped up the entire kitchen/bathroom, and that helped massively. However, a week of dust is worth it for a perfectly smooth ceiling.

Total renovation of 30 year old condo ceilings & walls

We started a reno of our home which is a 3,000 sq ft 30 year old condo only to find that we had the wrong contractors. Our designer helped save us by calling Kevin. He came to our rescue and was totally AMAZING! Kevin helped us with patching a cement/wire ceiling which has been torn apart by the electrician, walls that were moved, he raised two ceilings to create our dream and helped with the design in many other areas that we had been struggling with. Kevin is very creative and totally professional. He can’t be beat and I would recommend that you save yourself a lot of stress and just call Kevin. He will have the answers!

Basement Renovation

We hired Kevin to renovate our basement. This is the third project Kevin has done for us (main floor renovations a few years ago and work on previous houses). Kevin's work speaks for itself. Always professional, on budget and on time. Kevin also brings his guidance and knowledge to the job and his extensive list of contacts to round out the Buckner services. I have recommended Kevin to many friends with great results and would not hesitate to do so again. Simply put you can trust Kevin and crew with confidence.
