I hired David despite the single bad review on his rating because I found him utterly professional from the moment he came to give me quote and seemed knowledgeable about the job. I am glad to say I don’t regret hiring him. The job was done to absolute perfection. I have asked for more work from him and would definitely recommend him any day. David is clean and tidy, well organised and definitely takes pride in his plastering. I am pleased with his work ????

David arrived when he said he would. Polite and courteous throughout. He put dust sheets down and I could tell straight away he was a very clean and tidy plasterer. Standard of workmanship was excellent he clearly takes great pride in his work. I asked about the 1 negative comment on David’s profile. He was happy to discuss and I would have no issues in highly recommending David or using him again.

Plastering was good but i would never recomend this contractor as he was rude and when I asked a question he calls me to have a rant at me with the customer hearing the way he was talking to me. I am a main contractor on this job. My customer was not happy and very upest. Looking for a new plasterer now

David is a very skilled and professional plasterer and prior to commencing work in both our kitchen and dining room areas explained exactly what was needed to be done and why. He arrived on time with all the materials needed over the three days he was here and completed all the plastering within the time scale given. We would have no hesitation in using him again as the workmanship was first class. David was also respectful of our home and tidied up brilliantly at the end of each day.

Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend David Bishops work. David is reliable, works cleanly and quickly and the finished job (plastering an internal wall) was excellent. I would certainly use David’s services again.

David Bishop’s work was excellent and he would be my first choice for subsequent work. He takes great pride in his work, and he even replaced some detailing he felt could be improved. Consequently, the overall finish exceeded my expectations. Good timekeeping and I was kept informed of progress throughout. Very highly recommended.

The whole experience of mending my ceiling was faultless. David replied to my ad in minutes and quoted me on the same day. He has completed my job to a high standard and I found him to be polite extremely tidy and professional. I highly recommend him.

David did a very good quality plastering job for us, working very diligently and professionally and taking good COVID precautionary measures. He was very courteous and helpful, even giving me tips on how to tackle some other DIY jobs. The price was very reasonable and the work was done well within the required/agreed timeframe. Overall outstanding service, highly recommended.

From the get go David was great. As it turned out my job was not straightforward. Before making his recommendations David took the time to talk me through the options available and debate the possibilities. We decided to bring David in and I’m so glad we did. He was punctual, tidy and did exactly what he said he would. David takes pride in his work and we were delighted with the finished product. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend David to anyone.

David was very professional, came to view job to quote. Provided detailed quote. Arranged time to do the job and arrived promptly as agreed. Despite an unforseen issue, David completed the work to a high standard on time and as quoted. David removed all rubbish and was extremely clean and tidy. Communicated very promptly. Very friendly and polite. I would highly recommend anyone to use this company. Outstanding.

Tradesperson came to look at the job on time. Unsure whether the price was fair or not as don't know the going rate. I did put under £250 on your database so accepted the price said. Tradesperson was an hour later than said on 1st day but initial prep was completed the same day. Tradesperson on time next time he came to do main body of work and complete job. Overall quality very good. I would use this tradesperson again.
