Whenever I hear someone mention they are going to do a painting/plastering project, especially in the older homes of my neighborhood, I say: “you must call my friend Bert Kelley!” His expertise is in restoration, he is really smart, really fair, really organized, really, really great at his craft.” And then, I pull out a scrap piece of paper from my purse, my phone directory, and immediately write his number down; that’s how confident I am about making the recommendation.
Bert was on-time and on-budget, professional and cleaned up the work area each day. He had the task of matching a thick 1926, Spanish plaster wall pattern for a couple sections as well as repair some water damaged flat ceiling surfaces and did both perfectly. Bert was trustworthy and did a great job for us. I wouldn’t hesitate hiring him again.
Bert Kelley is a genial and gifted craftsman who takes great pride and care in his work. He has restored a number of walls and ceilings in our old house over the last five years or so. They have all have held up and continue to look pristine. I highly recommend him.
Bert was one of the most efficient contractors that I’ve ever hired. I was surprised how much work he accomplished within the 2 days he worked on my duplex. I really appreciate his background with plaster work, which is not all that common these days. In the end, I really felt like I got my money’s worth and wouldn’t hesitate to hire him again. I highly recommend his services, especially to home owners with older properties that need updating or repairs. Thanks again Bert!
Bert, Kathy and I appreciate your fine work. The bedroom, halls and living room look as though no cracks or water damage ever existed. Thanks.
This company is a “must hire” if restoration of decorative plaster in churches and theaters and homes is required. They do great work, are reliable, fair and have an appreciation for old world techniques.
Bert did a great job! He is truly an artist. I am new to the area and it is difficult to know whom to trust. I gave him the keys to my home and went on vacation. I returned to find a seamless repair to my ceiling. It actually looks better than it did originally. You can tell he takes tremendous pride in his work. A bonus for me is that he knows the area ( The East Side) and has respect for the architecture of these great old homes. On a personal note, he’s a really nice,interesting guy.
Bert did an excellent job of plaster repair at an extremely reasonably price. I would highly recommend him. Had others give estimates and over complicated the work that needed to be done and wanted triple his price. You need to call Bert. His work is excellent.
We have used Bert Kelley in the past for painting and repair work on our home. He did a good job and we have recommended him to others. We are glad that there is someone like Bert in this area who can do plaster repair work on older homes.
