Mrs. M. Burman
“Ravenswood Plastering did an absolutely marvellous job plastering our entire hallway and stairs in July ‘17. This was both tricky and onerous requiring internal scaffolding and involving the removal of large areas of old plaster down to the brick before plastering. The finish is first class and Iain is thoroughly reliable, very professional and extremely hard working as well as courteous.
I thoroughly recommend Ravenswood Plastering for a top quality service”.
Mr. E. Gibb, Queens Park Parish Church
“We were most impressed with the work carried out for us in Oct '17. It was a large room with 13 feet high ceilings and many large cracks in the ceiling and walls of our meeting room. This repair work was completed to a high and professional standard and Iain was friendly and professional at all times. We couldn't be happier with the plastering work that was done.
Many thanks from the team at Queens Park Govanhill Parish Church.”
Mr. T. Carlin
"Iain has now plastered three rooms for us in 2017 and we have always been impressed with his attention to detail, his clear explanations of what he is doing and why, together with his friendly, professional manner. The finish feels incredibly smooth and we would not hesitate to recommend Ravenswood Plastering to anyone.”
Dr. S. Alcock
"Ravenswood Plastering replaced two lath and plaster ceilings for us in a hall and bedroom. This involved cornice retention and working to awkward levels. We were very impressed with the quality of the work, which was completed on time and exactly to estimate. Iain was very helpful and a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in highly recommending him.”
Ms. L. Park
"Iain did a great job plastering over the artex ceiling in our kitchen. This was a big job in a large room with a high ceiling but he worked hard to get the job done in the time specified. The ceiling has now been painted and looks brilliant and it's really modernised the room.
He is trustworthy, professional and a friendly person to have around. Another bonus was that he cleaned up properly when he finished the job.
We will definitely use Ravenswood Plastering again and we highly recommend him."
Mrs. C. Rodger
"Iain has carried out two jobs for us during 2017; first was a large hole in our kitchen ceiling and the second was fixing the walls in our daughter’s bedroom. Each time he provided us with a service which was of the highest quality and we were absolutely delighted with the results. He also took great care to tidy up once he'd finished which, as a busy working Mum, was much appreciated. I have already recommended Ravenswood Plastering to friends and neighbours and felt very confident in doing so."
Ms. N. Hopkinson
“I would highly recommend Ravenswood Plastering. Iain has totally transformed my old living room ceiling, removing many layers of wallpaper and then plastering it. He took care and attention to make sure the rest of my room and hallway were protected from dust and left an information sheet on aftercare and decorating.
He is reliable, trustworthy and aware of the disruption of having work done in your property and does everything he can to make you feel at ease and keeps you up to date with progress.”
Mrs. E. McCann
"I received a first-class service from Ravenswood plastering and would highly recommend them to anyone.
Iain plastered over my lounge artex ceiling and walls without losing the profile from my cornice or centre rose. I asked Iain to plaster all my lounge walls and he advised me that this wasn't necessary and that he would just repair what was required. Great care was taken to protect my new floors and fireplace and when it was completed he cleaned the lounge and ensured that I was completely satisfied with the work.
I'd happily recommend Ravenswood Plastering for any your plastering requirements.”
Mr. & Mrs. Harris
“We are more than happy to recommend Iain and Ravenswood Plastering. We asked Iain to carry out two major plastering jobs for us - the first to replace a lathe and plaster bedroom ceiling, the second to cover a substantial amount of old artex in our dining room. From the moment Iain came to give us our quote we were confident in his abilities and his knowledge. He told us exactly what would be involved in both jobs and a timescale for each of them. When Iain came to carry out the work he arrived early every day and worked straight through and ensured that both jobs were finished to exactly the timescales he had told us, which was a huge help in allowing us to arrange decorating and the delivery of new carpets.
Our bedroom ceiling has some very intricate original cornicing and centre rose and Iain took great care to ensure that they were well protected and undamaged. Iain also gave us very useful advice on decorating the new dining room walls and bedroom ceiling.
We are delighted with the finished results of Iain’s work. Iain is a friendly, trustworthy professional, and we will happily recommend Ravenswood Plastering to family and friends.”
Mr. C. Parker
“We've used Ravenswood Plastering’s services on two separate occasions during 2016. The first time was when the lath and plaster ceiling collapsed in a bedroom, following water damage. The second occasion was to repair a bedroom wall following removal of a radiator.
The first time Iain came round, I was immediately struck by his professionalism and attention to detail. We received his very competitive quote within the week and his start date soon followed. When the work started I was impressed with his reliability and speed, but most of all the quality of his work. When further plastering work was required, I didn't hesitate to contact Iain and he fitted me in promptly.
It has been a pleasure dealing with Iain and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.”
Mr. & Mrs. Finn
“Ravenswood plastering came highly recommended by a friend, for whom Iain had done an excellent job. He was very friendly and helpful and gave us a very reasonable quote.
Iain has done two jobs for us in 2016 - he did a fantastic job by sorting out a dreadful mess of the plaster in our bathroom, made by the bathroom fitters, with excellent care taken of our new bathroom suite.
The second job was repairing the ceiling in the landing following a roof leak. Iain was really helpful, kept the house as clean as possible, and did a brilliant job of protecting our carpet on the stairs and landing.
In short, Iain is very friendly, helpful, accommodating, and his work is done to a fantastically high standard. I would very highly recommend Ravenswood Plastering.”
Mrs. A. Cameron
“We cannot recommend Iain of Ravenswood Plastering highly enough.
From his swift response to our request to visit the house, through his professionalism in explaining what was required and how he would tackle the job in hand of replacing a large damaged section of our living room ceiling, to his punctuality, attention to detail and high standard of workmanship. We were thoroughly impressed throughout our experience with Iain.
Within the timescale promised and within the original quote, Iain completed an excellent job and took the time to protect decoration, furniture and flooring prior to his work and tidied up on completion. He also attended to a couple of minor jobs on request.
He is a professional and very personable individual and we would have no hesitation in recommending Iain Andrews of Ravenswood Plastering to others.
We were also delighted to find out that we won the Ravenswood Plastering 2015 Christmas Hamper as a result of being entered into his annual prize draw.”
Mr. R. Armour
“I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Ravenswood Plastering for any plastering work.
The service was superb and the quality and attention to detail was excellent. The work carried out at my home was substantial and major, re-plastering a full artex removal of our entire hall but the disruption was minimal, cleanliness and tidiness are a prerequisite of the service provided.
Iain is one of the most trustworthy contractors I have ever employed and he can be left to get on with the job with minimum supervision and we will happily call on his services for our next project.”
Mr. F. Lamont
"Iain of Ravenswood Plastering carried out repair work to my lath and plaster ceiling. Repair work included damage around cornicing due to water ingress and extensive hair line cracks across the ceiling.
Iain was very professional and thorough in all his work. He was very courteous and thoughtful with regards to minimising mess as a result of the work. All repairs were carried out to a high standard and within the timeframe agreed. Couldn't recommend him highly enough."
Ms. E. Morgan
"I have no hesitation in recommending Ravenswood Plastering. Iain did a fantastic job plastering some new partition walls built into my flat.
No one can tell the difference between the original and the new walls thanks to his keen attention to detail.
Before the work was even done we had friendly consultation, with a clear written quote, and the work was finished well within the estimated timescale.
Iain was also very helpful in recommending other tradespeople for other jobs around the flat, for which I'm very grateful!"
Mrs. L. Dempster“lain has carried out extensive work to our home during 2014. Unfortunately there were a few surprises once old wallpaper had been stripped, including a wall which split in two, but lain was able to fix all of the problems and offered excellent, realistic advice. All of the work was carried out in a timely fashion and with minimal disruption. We are extremely pleased with Iain's work and would have no hesitation in recommending his services.”
Mr. R. Loughran
"There is always a risk in searching online for a reliable service whatever it is.
However, I can confirm I was delighted with the standard of plastering work Iain carried out for me. He provided a written quote which I did not feel under any pressure to accept.
Iain arrived on the agreed date and completed the work to the agreed deadline and I would not hesitate to contact or recommend him if I needed further work done."
Mr. R. Mason
"Having recently had plastering carried out by lain at Ravenswood plastering, I would definitely recommend him for future jobs.
My work involved repairs to the lathe and plaster ceiling due to water damage, including sourcing a section of closely matching cornice, skimming the ceiling above the stairs in the hallway with removal of artex first and skimming around some recently installed fire places.
I would recommend lain because:
• Initial estimate was accurate and lain clearly explained what and how he would carry out the work.
• The work was reasonably priced.
• Whilst the work was carried out lain was very clean and careful, clearing up each day. lain even dismantled the scaffolding in the stairwell daily so that I could access the bedrooms.
• The work carried out completely met with my high expectations."
Mr. A. Nesbitt"The job carried out by Iain Andrews was to square up two walls, the internal corner and provide a final skim prior to kitchen installation. The job, although would appear to be simple, was challenging given the variable ages of plaster on the walls and the variable depths of material removal carried out by myself to allow the walls to be squared. I found Iain to be very courteous and professional in his approach and offered good technical advise prior to the quotation. I found the level of service to be very good and quality of the completed job to be excellent. Iain was careful to tidy up at the end of each day with little disruption. As a result I have no hesitation in recommending Ravenswood Plastering."
Mr. J. Keenan (BDS), Shawlands Dental Practise"Iain provided us with an excellent service with no disruption to our business and was very accomodating . He refixed some quite intricate cornicing and ceiling plasterwork and left the premises spotless. His work was carried out as explained, on budget, on time and to a high standard."
Mr. H. Hendrie
“Iain carried out extensive repair work to my living room walls and ceiling after water damage. At the same time he repaired numerous fine cracks which had appeared over time on my walls and ceilings.
Iain arrived on time to inspect the damage and offered lots of realistic advice. He promptly provided a written quote which was highly competitive when compared to other quotes I had obtained. Having accepted the quote, Iain carried out the work as arranged. He provided an excellent reliable service and the work was carried out to a very high standard and he always cleaned up after working. Best of all, Iain was a pleasure to work with and I would have no hesitation in using him again or recommending him to others.”
Mrs. L. Scott
"I am delighted to unreservedly recommend Iain to anyone looking for high quality workmanship and service. I wanted Artex removed from a large hall and stairs and couldn't have been more pleased with the honest and informed advice given regarding the process.
Iain's comprehensive estimate of work to be carried out was completed as detailed and guarantees of tidy, timeous and high quality work were all realised. I have already recommended Iain to family and friends and would use his company again without hesitation."
Mr. Jim MacFarlane
"Iain provided an exemplary service in restoring the plasterwork in our dining room, which required two different styles of plastering. In the first instance the diligent analysis of the job and planning to make minimal impact on our daily lives was much appreciated. The completed job, made much more difficult by the age of our property and the subsidence it has endured over the years, resulted in the seamless integration of a new unit to old walls. We would happily employ Iain again for any such work and would gladly recommend him to anyone with a respect for quality workmanship. "
Ms. S. Macdonald
“The job involved covering Aretx on three ceilings. We got quotes from a couple of people but you gave us the confidence that the job was going to get done properly right from the start- no one else even mentioned that there was risk of asbestos in Artex or seemed to consider this is their plans for the job, which you certainly did. The work was completed to the schedule we agreed even though this meant you had to put in a few long days at our place. During the job, our flat was left extremely tidy. The actual finish of the ceilings was excellent. Even after you had finished the work you gave us really helpful advice about how best to tackle painting the ceilings (which we have now done and they look great!) We recommended you to Neil's sister soon after you completed work for us and would be pleased to recommended Ravenswood Plastering to friends and family again in future.”
Mr. G. Anderson“We hired Iain to help us skim and re-plaster all our halls and communal area ceilings in a blonde sandstone mid-terrace we are renovating. There was previous Artex on the walls and ceilings which were part removed and very difficult to work over but Iain did a fantastic job with real attention to getting the kind of paint perfect finish we were looking to achieve. He was very honest, trustworthy and turned up on time. We were happy to just give him keys and let him get on with it. Overall he did a great job in difficult circumstances and we would happily recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent quality plasterer.”
Mr. K. Mackison
“We had a leak from a bathroom pipe which resulted in a partial collapse of a bedroom ceiling in the room below. Called in Iain who gave a competitive quote for the job and carried out the work very efficiently. Iain is a pleasant easy going person to deal with and I have no hesitation in recommending him for any plastering work.”
Mrs. A. Richmond
"Iain initially helped us with a section of wall where an old gas fire had been removed. He did a good job, and we then asked him back to plaster our upstairs and downstairs hall for us. We are very pleased with the quality of the finish. Iain gave us a reasonable quote for the work and we found him very tidy and reliable. We were happy to leave him with keys to get on with the job. We would happily recommend him."
Mrs. D. Cumine
"Iain re-plastered an area of my dining room that had dampness, he also addressed other cracks on the same wall. I was delighted with his prompt and efficient service, he is trustworthy, very likeable and carried out the work to a high standard.
I would recommend him highly."
