Diligent & Professional Work

My apartment ceiling was a mess after popcorn ceiling removal via another contractor.
In hindsight I should've called Gavin first.
Took a week, now looks good as new.

Drywall Ceiling & Plaster Repair

Gavin did a fantastic job replacing drywall on our ceilings and doing plaster repairs throughout the top floor of our house. He even took the time to come back to the job site after we had completed painting to help set our light fixtures without damaging the drywall. He completed everything in the time promised and left everything clean. He was very responsive throughout the process and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend his services.

Basement ceiling

After removing stipple I had Meehan Plastering refinish and paint a large ceiling to a level 5 condition.

Dealing with a time served craftsman who understands the scope, clearly explains the procedure and executes the work on-time to a very high standard is always gratifying and rewarding.

I intend to re-hire Meehan for more similar work, therefore I obviously have no hesitation in recommending this company to others.

Basement Drywall

I hired Gavin to drywall my basement. He did an outstanding job installing the drywall, taping, mudding, sanding and applying a primer coat. The finished drywall is incredibly smooth.

He completed the project on time and to the agreed cost and he gave great suggestions on ways to enhance the look of the basement by modifying the layout of the drywall in certain areas.

If you are looking for a responsible, easy to work with and detailed drywaller, Gavin is your man. Hire him, you won't be disappointed.

Plaster ceiling skim coat and drywall installation

As part of our kitchen renovation we removed a wall which meant we needed to remove a fairly large portion of the plaster ceiling. One side of the wall was smooth plaster and the other side was textured plaster so we wanted to skim coat everything to make it all flat. We hired Gavin after getting a few quotes and reading reviews. Gavin very much lived up to the positive reviews on Homestars. He was very polite, easy to work with and answered all my questions. His quote detailed the work he was doing and the cost of any additional items not covered by the quote (such as additional drywall patches needed after electrical work). The best part of the whole experience is that the work completed by Gavin was excellent, I can’t believe how smooth our ceilings look now. In addition to the drywall and plaster work on the ceilings he also had to install drywall on the kitchen walls and those also look great. We are very satisfied with the work and would recommend Gavin to anyone looking for drywall/plaster work.

Ceiling Plastering

Several years ago, we removed the popcorn ceiling that we had in our condo. We recently decided to hire a contractor to plaster a flat white ceiling over the exposed concrete. Gavin came over and quoted the work and knew exactly what would be needed for the space.

We could not be happier with the results. He stuck to the timeline provided and completed immaculate work.

Thanks again Gavin!

Wall and ceiling finish plastering

Great plastering and sanding, prompt, professional, tidy, came prepared. Arrived when he promised, finished when he said he would. Perfect!! BUT...
My review would end there if the work ended there. Unfortunately giving everything a coat of primer was part of the scope of work. The “nap” length of the roller used was 1 inch (25mm). This takes the smooth work of the plastering job and completely ruins it.
Every smooth ceiling in my home was painted with a 10mm nap length roller. Every other ceiling in my home looks smooth. The ceiling in question will need to be re-sanded or re-plastered to achieve an acceptable result.
The company owner was unwilling to bring the ceiling up to the requested standard. I won’t get into the details of that discussion but will say that I’m on my own to make this ceiling look as good as all the other, previously stippled ceilings in my home do. I’ll add that they were not done by a professional.

Hi Ned,

Regarding your review and the phone call we had, you reached out to us for a quotation with an in-depth description of what you wanted done in a room that you had previously started to work in and needed us to finish for you.

You requested that we do some sanding, plastering, priming, and finish paint the ceiling. First day of the job, we did a thorough walk through of what & how you wanted it to be done with no mention of a specific type of paint finish for the ceiling, thus, we proceeded with the method we use for all of our other clients. We continued with all the work and on the final day, we did a full walk through where you were able to check the finished product. You were 100% satisfied with the result and you then paid us the remaining balance we agreed upon.

The work was completed on the 26th of November, 2021 and on the 13th of February, 2022, three months after the day the job was completed, we received a call from you requesting to bring the ceiling to a different standard. In our conversation, you admitted you had painted over our finished product that you had originally signed off on and also admitted that you failed to mention the specific finish that you wanted despite countless opportunities mentioned above, you then requested that we bring the ceiling to your now expected standard and expected us to do it for free of charge.

As a customer you are within your right to request a modification throughout the process of a job or at a later date but you cannot sign off on a finished product and request an alteration to said finished product especially if it has been altered by anyone and expected to be finished in a specific way that was never mentioned when opportunity after opportunity to mention it never arose as mentioned above and expect said modification to be done free of charge.

As a small business owner and any business in general, it cannot operate on a profit if a customer has a right to request any modification for free of charge because they had a change of heart no matter the timeline to which you expected of us, we discussed this all on our phone call that we had on the 13th of February 2022 and stated that this is our reasoning behind the issue as originally discussed.

Sincerely,
Gavin

Basement Drywall

I had recently renovated my basement from the ground up and needed help with new drywall on the walls and ceiling, as well as mudding and taping. After looking around for a while, I came across Gavin's profile on Home Stars; he came over the next day and quoted on the work. He was diligent with understanding what was needed and provided a fair quote for the work.

His work was outstanding! Right from the go, he was up front on timelines to complete the work, and arrived on time each day. The guy is an absolute pro! I recently painted the basement and the results are great, all thanks to Gavin's amazing work. No seams / mud lines visible anywhere. Next drywall project I have I'm reaching out to him immediately. Don't look anywhere else; this guy is the best.

Popcorn ceilings and plastering

We needed to remove popcorn from two rooms in our home and began the search to find the right person for the job. After reviewing several companies on Homestars we settled on Gavin from Meehan’s Plastering and Drywall. Gavin came to our home and gave us a quote for a very reasonable price. When choosing a contractor like most people we look for a skilled tradesman, someone who will be reliable and whom we can trust. We found that a spades in Gavin. He arrived at the agreed upon time and got started on the job. During the project he kept us advised as to next steps and showed up each day at the agreed upon time. His work was first rate and he took immaculate care of our home during what we expected to be a very messy project. As we had recently had new flooring laid and had painted one of the rooms (cart before the horse but with Covid you do what you can as trades become available). Gavin went to great lengths to protect our floors and even “tented” the dining room to protect the walls. When finished he and his colleague Barry cleaned the entire area, even washing the windows in our French doors! Truly above and beyond. We cannot recommend Gavin highly enough. I quarantine when choosing Gavin you will get a hard working, trustworthy, skilled professional and you will be extremely happy with the work
