what to look for in a plastering contractor

Plastering

Entrusting your house or project to a plastering contractor is a big decision, and a quick Google search for plastering companies can produce overwhelming results. So how can you be sure that D White Plastering are the ones for you?

1.Experience
Firstly, look for depth and breadth of expertise: a good plasterer will have experience in all types of projects, ideally both commercial and domestic. Plastering companies with many years experience are likely to have dealt with all the hiccups that can occur during a job, meaning any issues or problems can be dealt with swiftly and efficiently. What’s more, a trader with years of broad experience is likely to have reams of contacts that they can recommend to you, so that the rest of your job can be done to a high standard. As you can see from our ‘About us’ section, D White have been in business for over 12 years, and cover a huge range of jobs – from large to small, domestic to commercial. Our impressive contacts list means that we can usually help you out with recommendations for other traders.

2.Qualifcations
The next thing to look at is what qualifications your plastering contractor has – you don’t want to end up on ‘Builders from Hell’ after being ripped off by a cowboy! I qualified with a City & Guilds certification at Lime Grove College, Shepards Bush. City & Guilds is a well respected awarding body – operating in over 80 countries – and is dedicated to vocational learning. City and Guilds qualifications are produced in conjunction with leading industry bodies, meaning that they are some of the best in the industry. What’s more, D White Plastering have appeared on TV for all the right reasons, making a cameo on a major refurbishment program in 2007!

3.Reputation
The best plastering companies will have multiple testimonials and customer feedback for you to look at. We have many satisfied customers who have left feedback on our testimonials page. We also have an average score of 9.8 out of 10 on checkatrade.com and have been awarded the ‘Buy with Confidence’ seal of approval from the Local Authority Trading Standards Services.

4.Customer Service
Of course, when choosing a plastering contractor, one of the main things is that you have a good rapport with the person you have hired. A friendly, flexible approach goes a long way in ensuring you can trust the person you are working with. We pride ourselves on our customer service and are happy to have a chat to you about any jobs your may be considering.
