Just a couple of weeks before Christmas in my son's room, the lathe and plaster ceiling decided it was letting gravity win, and started to fail. In multiple spots the ceiling started to give way. We recently had to replace the roof and the ceilings didn't like the banging.
It is 93 year old house, same age as the Toronto Maple Leafs and like the Leafs, this house needs a lot of work.
Not knowing anything about ceilings, I figured they basically have one job and this ceiling was not performing too well. I started to ask family, friends, and neighbours about their ceilings, and I researched whether I should repair the plaster, or have someone drywall the ceiling.
A friend of our family just had plaster ceiling work completed in the west end of the city and was pleased with the job, and recommended his contractor. I thought the plaster repair might be and option but I also wondered about drywall, and figured I better get more than one quote and opinion.
On Homestars I found Davey Drywall. His reviews made me want to call him. I sent a message and Davey responded quickly. We set up an appointment for the following week.
Davey came in, examined the ceiling and explained what was happening and suggested the option to we remove the ceiling and start fresh with new drywall. I must say I got a very good feeling meeting Dave, and just I could just tell he knew what he was doing in this trade.
After considering our options we went with Davey Drywall and I am happy we did.
Dave and his employee put in the time, starting the task when they said they were going to and finishing when they said they were going to.
Excellent work Dave. And superior clean up - we were able to paint and redecorate the room in no time.
Davey Drywall saved Christmas
I'd use Davey services again in an East York Minute. I plan to book him again for more drywall work in the near future.
