I'll be honest, I don't know much about parging, and would be hard pressed to tell a good job from a bad job. But our neighbour is an engineer who runs a company that teaches home inspection. The first time Mike did the parging our neighbour was super impressed and so years later we hired him again. Aside from a terrific parging job, Mike comes when he says he'll come, finishes when he says he'll finish (weather permitting of course) and is a nice, trustworthy person. We'll hire him again unhesitatingly.
