Hi my names Chas and I had the pleasure of first labouring (to know what to teach your help) then working for my father for five years for virtually no money. Now at 52 I've been plastering most of my life,its been good to me most of the time, I've travelled and met many people all over. I'm based in Ringwood Hants I've worked on some big contracts " the coper leisure centre at the back of the Royal Bath Hotel" for example. As well as normal plastering I've done mould work in London and also worked on " Sleeping Beauty's castle in Euro Disney for three month running moulds. most of the pictures of my work are in Film form, that doesn't seem to work on this site. I,ll post my CV on here and what pictures i have, and fingers crossed until i take some more.

Chas is a very polite young man who did an excellent job for us. He is a very clean worker and leaves no mess. Chas completed the work in the given time and the agreed price and he did a little extra work for no charge (much appreciated). I would have no hesitation recommending Chas to anybody on the work he did for us, and without doubt I will ask for a quote from Chas for our next bit of work. I would also like to point out we are OAP's and Chas was extremely patient with us as we are a little deaf

Excellent communication from the time of Garry's initial diagnosis and quoting stage to completion of job. Price quoted was fair and investigative work carried out revealed remedial work did not require as much work as in worst case scenario. Paul worked diligently to clear cavity, install weepholes along with new leadwork and replace bricks. Really nice blokes to be recommended. I was consulted and kept informed of progress throughout the job and satisfied with price paid.
