Classic Painting and Construction has been in business since 2015. Since then, it’s received the Best of TrustedPros in Ottawa Award for 4 times in a row from 2018-2021. 

What we liked most about Classic Painting and Construction is its attention to detail. Not just in providing the service you availed, but also its ability to make necessary changes to any job without sacrificing quality and safety.

Agreements can also easily be revised if there’s a need for them. The team will even gladly advise you on what you can do to reduce costs and stay within your budget.

Aside from plasterwork, it also specializes in drywalling services. Drywall is used the same way as a plaster — their only difference is that drywall is a softer material that provides better insulation.

Although drywall is less durable and soundproof than plasterwork, it’s great that the company also offers it. Plaster is the more expensive of the two and for those on a tight budget, this could be your best choice for now.

This plasterer’s painting service is also one of its main specialties. Its gallery of past paint jobs clearly shows how experienced and professional it is when it comes to this particular service. 

Some of the customers we spoke to, however, say that the team is unprofessional. This might be something you want to look out for before deciding to work with the company. 

Overall, Classic Painting and Construction definitely deserves a spot on this list. 

Pros

  • Highly professional team
  • Award-winning service
  • Adaptable
  • Offers drywalling services
  • Specializes in painting jobs

Cons

  • A few negative reviews
  • Expensive fees

Customer Reviews

In good hands

“Had Keshna come in to repair my ceiling and remove stipples. When he arrived, he recognized that the job was bigger than originally imagined and our quote was revised appropriately. He even provided advice and lended me his tool to do some of the work myself to reduce the cost and stay within budget. He completed the work in time and did an excellent job despite the challenges with the project. He communicated clearly throughout the process and I felt I was in good hands the whole time. Great work and service. Would hire again.” – Zi from Ottawa

Delivered exactly as promised

“We used Classic Painting and Construction for drywall repair and stipple removal, and ceilings subsequently painted. Keshna was always very prompt when responding to our inquiries and concerns. Keshna worked for over a period of four days and when he left things were left completely clean. He delivered exactly as promised. It was such a positive experience we are having him return in the fall to do more work and have recommended him to three prospective clients already. His work ethic is exemplary so we highly recommend him without reservation.” – C Doyle

ThreeStepsDrywall is a family-owned business that’s been operating in Ottawa for more than 15 years. As of today, it’s mainly operated by a father and his two sons who are beloved members of their community.

Thanks to how long it’s been in the business, it has a full showcase of past work for you to browse. The gallery at its official website also includes drywall art, which shows off the artistic sense of this family-owned business.

What stood out to us the most is that ThreeStepsDrywall is willing to share important knowledge about its own trade. You can easily access simple and no-nonsense tutorials from its website or directly on its Youtube channel.

Its guides include drywall tape applications, fixing drywall, and even applying the first up to the third coat of drywall — free of charge.

Additionally, it offers a level 5 finish for its plasterwork services. This is actually the highest level of finish, meaning the plaster’s surface is as free of blemishes as possible. 

ThreeStepsDrywall uses its own three-step finish that allows it to achieve a flawless level 5 finish for its plastering service. It involves a lot of tape, mud, and plaster, but it gets the job done.

Also, one of the most important things to note about this family-owned business is that its rates are reasonably priced, giving it a solid advantage against other businesses that have similar services.

ThreeStepDrywall’s biggest weakness, though, is that it lacks other services. It offers mostly drywall services, limiting the kind of work you achieve with it. 

But if your only focus is plasterwork, its team is happy to take the job.

Pros

  • Highly specialized in drywall & plasterwork
  • Family-owned
  • Reasonable rates

Cons

  • Limited services

Customer Reviews

Quality at a reasonable price

“We highly recommend ThreeStepsDrywall in Ottawa, Ontario. We used this company in February, 2022, to install our basement drywall. They were honest, professional and responsive and delivered a quality drywall installation at a reasonable price. This is a family run company where Alex and his sons, Daniel and David, are not just great people but also have years of experience in their profession. We will use them again.

Disclaimer: We are only satisfied customers without any personal, business or financial relationship with this company.” – Arash Hekmat

True to their timelines and flexible to ours

“We hired Three Steps Drywall to hang and finish the entire main floor’s drywall, approximately 600 sq ft. From the first meeting, Daniel was very communicative and made sure we knew what was happening at every step. From the crew that  hung the drywall, to his and David’s mudding and taping, the quality of the work was excellent.  They were true to their timelines and flexible to ours.  They were even willing to tolerate some rookie mistakes on our part and came back an additional time to make sure we were happy. He was thorough in his measurements and came in under his initial estimate. I wouldn’t hesitate to call them again and have already recommended them to others who need similar work done.” – Brendan Mooder

To do – Done is your go-to when it comes to getting the job done. Its wide range of services makes it the perfect candidate if you want more than just plastering.

We’re amazed at how flexible it is because not only can you get it to do your plastering professionally, you can even follow-up with availing its painting service. 

Its team will gladly give that smooth plaster a beautiful coat to match.

Unlike smaller businesses, it has a bigger advantage when it comes to manpower. For every service like construction, painting, and electrical, it has a dedicated team of skilled experts for each one.

Heck, if you’re satisfied with its plasterwork, then you can even get it to install a secondary suite if you have some extra cash. The possibilities are almost endless.

What stood out to us aside from its various available services is its charity work. 

To do – Done has its own What-If Fund. Its purpose is that 1% of all the revenue it makes is used for low-income homeowners in crisis.

Specifically, this fund allows it to offer renovation, accessibility, and retrofitting services for its beneficiaries free of charge. If you know anyone who can benefit from this, you can apply for it through the company’s email.

A fair warning, however, that some of the clients we spoke to had negative things to say about this company, like poor communications and unprofessional staff. If customer service is important to you, this might not be your best option.

Pros

  • Wide range of services
  • Large team of professionals
  • Has an active charity fund

Cons

  • Poor communication and responsiveness 
  • Unprofessional staff 

Customer Reviews

A pleasure to work with

“My husband and I cannot say enough great things about Tonya and her team. From start to finish it has been a pleasure to work with To Do Done. Rick and Donald assisted us in some needed repairs and new flooring to our basement this spring. The repairs went perfectly according to timeline and they were very thorough. They identified issues during the initial inspection that we were unaware of and did the needed work during the duration of the project. They are professional, very responsive, extremely clean and the quality of their work speaks for itself. We will absolutely be using To Do Done again for future projects. Thank you so much!!” – Danielle Warwick

I would definitely use them again

“I had a great experience working with Tonya and her crew.  I hired To Do-Done to rebuild my stairway with new tread, risers and trim and to install unfinished hardwood flooring for 800 sq feet of my upstairs area. This was a big job that involved sanding the unfinished wood, staining it and applying polyurethane.  Sully, Sondos and Dave were all great to work with.  They always arrived on time, were tidy, very polite and were good at  communicating with me by text or phone.   The finished product looks amazing.    Tonya is pure pleasure!  I totally trust her.  She always answers texts, phone calls or emails quickly, she visits the site to make sure things are going well and she was very upfront and fair with her pricing of the job.  This is my second time working with To Do-Done (first one was rebuild my screened in porch a couple of years ago) and I would definitely use them again for any other projects, big or small.” – Lynne Evenson

Venetian Plaster Ottawa is your master plasterer. Its founder and lead artisan, Robbie Mansour, is a master craftsman who views his work as an art form.

He learned his craft from master applicators in Australia and North America. Now, he shares the beauty of his work with clients and educates an international audience online.

Venetian Plaster Ottawa offers plastering services, but what’s great is that it gives you the option to customize your finish. There’s modern, classic, contemporary, minimalist, traditional, transitional, and French country styles available.

That means you can make sure your new plasterwork matches with your interior. Almost like the plaster was already there from the start!

The advantage of using this kind of plaster is that it’s environmentally friendly and recyclable. It’s also a breathable and safe material for everyone thanks to its low chemical content.

And do you know the best part? Venetian Plaster can even go on drywall and pretty much any good surface for an elegant finish.

Now that’s great and all, but what’s the catch? Well, Venetian Plaster Ottawa’s range of services is limited to plasterwork and design. 

So if you plan on getting other stuff done, keep in mind that there’s only so many services it can offer. Still though, its team is made up of experts and artists that are great at what they can do.

Pros

  • Highly-skilled plasterers
  • Knowledgeable in design
  • Open to customization

Cons

  • Limited services

Customer Reviews

Workmanship and professionalism are exceptional

“Robbie’s workmanship and professionalism are exceptional and beyond every expectation. He created a stunning faux concrete/venetian plaster to our living room walls and fireplace. Every visitor to our home is blown away by the finish project. His painting is very high level and impressive and he’s quite the perfectionist. It’s nice to see someone caring so much about his work and his customers too. He was timely, responsive, friendly, reliable, reasonably priced, provided great consultation and accepted feedback easily. We highly recommend!” -Matt Ottaviani

We felt protected and at ease

“We hired Robbie to apply venetian plaster on our fireplace. I’m more than impressed with the professionalism and the outcome of the project. It started with our first meeting, Robbie was prompt to answer my calls and came by at a time that was suited to showcase what my concerns were since lighting was very important to this project. I had a vision, and Robbie was able to show me how he will implement the design, and even presented us the samples during our first meeting. He prepared plaster and samples to show me exactly what I will be getting, he even worked with me and ask the small details so I will be happy with the result. What impressed me with the most the overall professionalism. We just finished building our home so we’ve seen numerous contractors who showed absolutely no respect to our home. Robbie and team on the other hand, came with his own coverings, tapes, and protected our floor, our walls, and our fireplace. Nothing was damaged. We felt protected and at ease when Robbie is there. We were so pleased how much he cared for our home. The final result after 2 days of hard work was beautiful, it wasn’t what I was envisioning, it was better! There’s not many people in Ottawa who’s able to do what Robbie can do. He’s specifically trained for this type of art. If you are choosing anyone to design, finish, or simply repaint, I highly recommend Robbie and his team, it is extremely hard to find artists who pays this much attention in detail on projects and respect/care for your home at the same time.” – Yan Ma

What we love about M.A Master Plaster is that it offers clients affordable rates for exceptional work. From ordinary foundation and concrete repairs to excavations for leaks, it’ll set you up with the right price.

It’s only been in business for more than 3 years in Ottawa and has since then made sure to live up to its name. 

Even if you’re not from Ottawa, don’t worry! It also services surrounding areas, so just give it a call or a message to set an appointment.

M.A Master Plaster’s team is not only quick to do the job, but you can expect professional quality repairs in every leak and crack they seal up. It even has before and after pictures of past work on its Facebook page and website, if you’re curious.

Like the quote from a well-known meme, “It ain’t much, but it’s honest work,” it’s a simple business that prides itself in the work it offers to all its clients. Besides, even with only a few services available, its team knows what it’s doing. 

If you’re going to need something more comprehensive than just plastering, though, it’s best to look elsewhere. 

So really, there’s not much else to say about it. For simple, no-nonsense home repair needs and plasterwork for a good price and good company, the M.A Master Plaster team can be the right fit for you.

Pros

  • Available for areas surrounding Ottawa
  • Affordable rates
  • Can also do home repairs

Cons

  • Limited services
