Specializing in electrical and plumbing upgrades.

Many years experience in working over wood lathe and plaster board.

It is much more economical to re-plaster rather than to drywall due to the the rough cut lumber and uneven surfaces not suited for drywall.

Must consult before starting any renovations to avoid over costs.
