Bedroom Ceiling Repair

I'm a bit late for this review as the job was completed a few months ago, but better late than never.

We had issues after we purchased our house with the roof as shingles kept falling off during heavy winds. We kept repairing the issue but after a while water got into the house and damaged our bedroom ceiling. We needed to find someone quickly and came across Davey - thank goodness! Davey not only came quickly to check it out but gave us a great quote and started shortly afterwards. Best part is that it looks better than before!

With Davey's work, and a new roof - we sleep better.

Thank you!

Drywall Ceiling

We hired Davey and his crew to put up and paint our ceiling and some other smaller touch ups. We were so pleased with the end result. They were punctual, friendly and did a great job. We highly recommend them and would hire them again for any future projects.

No show

After working on our kitchen reno for months, and we needed some help and we expressed the timeline was super important to us. Dave gave us a reasonable quote and we accepted and booked a time. Dave had to reschedule. We later rebooked and the day before he bumped us another day. The day we confirmed for, he just didn't show up and ghosted us. We tried to contact him multiple times and received no texts or calls.

If he didn't have time for the job, he could have just said so and we have found someone else. Our project has now been delayed by an extra few weeks and we now have to start all over again with another contractor.

Hi Rachel
As I said numerous times , I can't apologise enough for not getting the job done for you ! As I said, I had a death at home and was unable to travel so I took time off for my own wellbeing and rescheduled twice with you . I was also indeed unreachable for a day but considering the circumstances, most people would understand if I needed a breather and I apologise once again that I didn't get to you when I told you I would .
Unfortunately it wasn't just you who I never made contact with, I just needed a day in peace with not dealing with work issues or anything that would stress me even more , even though I had made a commitment to do the work .
I hope you got a contractor that you were happy with to do the job and I wish you all the best in your new kitchen once you get it completed .

Basement Reno

We had just finished getting the majority of our basement renovation completed, and needed to find a drywaller to finish the work.
It appears that drywallers are hard to find during a pandemic.
We ended up with two quotes. The first quote seemed reasonable, but then the contractor never replied to our emails to schedule a start time. The second quote was from Dave, who came in under the price for the first quote, was extremely responsive, including letting us know right away when he could put us in the schedule, was flexible when we ran into an issue with an inspection, put down drop sheets and paper inside to protect the floor (even though it was just concrete ), and even offered to spray down the walkway outside for us, where there was some dust from the drywall work. He even used a sweeping compound, like they use in schools, to keep the dust down as they worked. His work was great with a lot of attention paid to details and how to put drywall around our furnace area where there are a lot of pipes, etc. It was a pleasure to work with him and his crew. I have no hesitation in recommending him for any future jobs.

Flat Ceilings Across Main Floor

Dave is by far the best contractor I have worked with. Polite, courteous, detailed - he is so passionate about doing a great job and it really shows. Dave gave us a detailed walk through and quote to help us understand what the job would entail weeks beforehand, and he was great at communicating with me to keep me updated. The finished result is INCREDIBLE! It feels like we are walking into a brand new house, and we keep commenting on how great it looks. Dave and his team thoroughly cleaned the house - you can't even tell how dusty it was during the process! He was incredibly kind and generous to even help us patch some holes in our wall left by the previous owners during his breaks. We are so happy to have hired Dave, and have already recommended him to our friends. We will definitely be calling him again to do our upstairs and basement when the time comes.

Popcorn ceiling removal plus painting

Just hired Davey drywall to remove, mud, prime and paint 600 square foot popcorn ceilings. The service and clean up he provided was next to none, we even cancelled the cleaners. All sanding was done with a vaccuum sander so no dust was created. I found the whole experience very professional and would highly recommend him.

Great job!

Dave and his crew did a meticulous job installing a drywall ceiling in our older home. He took the time to explain the steps he was going to take, updated us frequently, finished ahead of schedule and did a great job protecting the floors and cleaning up. If we have any future drywall needs, I'd definitely call on Dave.

Excellent Experience

I have used the services of Davey Drywall for 3 projects.
The first involved totally redoing another contractor's
drywall installation around a new gas fireplace. Dave completed the job
the way it should have been done in the first place.
The second project was widening the opening between my living and dining rooms. The walls are plaster so the work was very difficult, but it was perfectly completed.
The third was smoothing a textured living room ceiling and filling in the openings left when old pot lights were removed.
Again, this job was done exactly as hoped.
My experience in using Davey Drywall's services has been so positive.
Dave is a craftsman. He is meticulous, proud of his work and does the job right. He works hard, keeps the work area tidy, and comes back if adjustments are needed. I keep hiring him because I trust his skills and his work ethic.

the way it should have been done the first time.
The second project was widening the opening between my living room and dining room. The walls are plaster so it was quite time consuming.The third was smoothing out a textured ceiling and filling in holes where old pot lights had been located.
From my experience Dave's work is meticulous. He is a real craftsman, taking great pride in everything he does. He wants his customer to be
satisfied and comes back if any adjustments are needed. He works hard and is reliable. I keep hiring him because I have been so pleased.

Popcorn Ceiling Removal + Paint

Could not ask for a better experience, it was a real pleasure working with Dave to remove popcorn ceiling, prime, and paint. Everything turned out perfect and his quality of work even impressed a former contractor in my family.

I have contacted several popcorn ceiling/stucco companies on HomeStars in the GTA area, and none of seem to want the job given the small footage of my house. Dave was professional and the only one that showed up on time and carefully explained his work before beginning.

I would not hesitate to contact Dave for any future drywall/stucco work. Kudos to you and your team Dave, you have built an outstanding business!!!

Drywall Repair

The job was a repair in confined areas. It was done quickly and well. Upmost care was given to the surrounding areas and clean up. Davey was professional and a pleasure to deal with.
