When I noticed a damp patch in the plaster ceiling in an upstairs bedroom, The painting firm working in my house at the time (Finer Edge - excellent) recommended Jeff Clarke to take a look. Jeff arrived the next business day and over the course of an hour advised me not only on how to fix the ceiling problem, but also how to improve water pressure in this 93-year old house, fix the inefficient outdoor drain in the back stairwell, the gaps in the brick surrounding a window and the poor grading in front of the house - and even provided design ideas for the very awkward, soon-to-be-renovated bathroom! Money well spent - I really appreciate his professional independent advice, knowledge and experience and would recommend him without reservations.

Old house, plaster and lathe walls, 2 bedrooms painted red (lots of coerage required to make them pale yellow and cream!), metal rilings on front porch had rusted and bubbled, front steps peeling badly...more than we wanted to deal with ourselves. So owner Bill came over and gave me an estimate, explained the special work needed and we shook hands immediately. Colin supervised the work; he came early on a Monday, did a quick walk-through before going to another site, the painter in charge arrived half an hour later, we did a more thorough walk- through, I gave him the housekey and he and a colleague started prep work. They were friendly, cheerful and very professional. On Tuesday, I drove to New Brunswick. When I returned on Friday afternoon, the work was finished, and beautifully done: railings and porch sanded smooth, bedrooms looking great, including part of a bulging wall where the plaster and lathe were cut out and replaced with drywall. Am very pleased. Will definitely use the

Igal is terrific. Professional to the Nth degree. An excellent eye. He installed several several sets of matched prints so that they won't slip off-kilter over time, he produced a perfect TV wall mount for a 32" flat screen and hung a huge wall hanging and various other stuff, and made excellent recommendations regarding placement and framing. All of this in a house with plaster and lathe walls that bulge and ebb - yeuucchhh. And he is so conscientious about making sure you know when he'll be there. Highly, highly recommended.
