Thank you very much.

Quote from Doreen and Phil


27th September 2018

David, his dad and the other tradesmen replaced our kitchen. They always arrived as arranged, always double checked our requirements, were considerate and paid attention to detail. They tidied up daily and did a very good job. A pleasure to do business with.

Quote from Keith Ashby


11th April 2018

David and the Berks Plastering team came highly recommended and did superb job removing a tricky wall section and then renovating a bathroom. Work all finished to an incredibly high standard and we have since worked with David again to replaster a playroom. I would recommend David without hesitation and it's also worth highlighting how fantastic they all have been with our small kids. A pleasure to have them working on the house and we're now planning a larger job with the team.

Quote from Adrian & Francesca


29th March 2018

Quote from Ann Chippington


29th January 2018

David and his men did an excellent job, started on time and as the flat was occupied left each day with the flat being clean and tidy. Would have no problem recommending David's work to anyone

Quote from Barry Wetherall


6th December 2017

Thank you David for a really good quick job to repair and skim our lounge ceiling. Great just to be able to give you a key and the job was completed while we were at work and the room left very clean and tidy. Great job - thanks.

Quote from Mark Pollard


14th November 2017

We contacted David earlier this year after reading reviews in the Little Green Book. He replastered our living room ceiling and painted the woodwork, all to a high standard.

We were so pleased with his work that he has just been back to strip the hall, stairs and landing; he replastered walls and the ceiling and painting it, all done to his high standards.

He has been a pleasure to have in our home; he arrived promptly each day, he was extremely helpful about the work and was also very patient during our decision-making about just which shade of grey to paint the walls. Before leaving each day everything was given a good clean. We’ll happily have David (and his team of Dad and Sean) back when we next want work doing and recommend him without reservation.

Quote from Jo Graham Thorpe


3rd November 2017

David and his team have done an outstanding job on our new ensuite. As usual with a reasonably big job, there were a few surprises along the way, but he worked tirelessly to ensure the finished job wasn't compromised at all and was just how we wanted it. He also added a few extras along the way to ensure it was brilliant, which was hugely appreciated. He and all of the team are lovely guys to have around too. All in all, highly recommended.

Quote from Helen P


31st October 2017

David came and sorted out our lounge ceiling after water damage from the bathroom above. The whole ceiling was stripped down and resurfaced. Very good work, very careful about protecting carpets, furniture and clearing up afterwards. Would definetly use his company again.

Quote from Keith Collings


16th October 2017

David and his team are very professional and have completed several jobs for us including plastering walls and ceilings, decorating and most recently installing a complete new bathroom.
We were very impressed by the level of care and attention; every little detail was considered. All the work, especially the tiling, has been completed to an exceptionally high standard and the excellent service we received was second to none, nothing was too much trouble.
We have no hesitation in confidently recommending Berkshire Plastering and look forward to working with David again on our next project.

Quote from Christine & Lawrence Boxall


6th June 2017

I can highly recommend David for his excellent workmanship, reliability, perseverance and professional approach. We started what should have been a fairly simple reconfiguration of a bedroom in our old house involving replastering the walls, replacing the ceiling and moving a radiator. Due to the age of the property, we needed to replace ceiling joists involving building control and a building surveyor. David was brilliant at guiding us through this process, keeping us updated every day and giving us all available options before moving to the next stage. Thank you!

Quote from Philippa Harris


5th March 2017

This is the third time David and his team have worked on our house. They always complete the job to a very high standard, causing minimum disruption and leaving everything very tidy at the end of each day. Any queries are always dealt with promptly and with great friendliness.

Quote from Barbara and Andy Turner


30th January 2017

We have been blown away by the service David and his team have provided. Having recently bought a new house requiring a lot of work, we found David through this website and asked for a quote for a new bathroom, and plastering the whole of the upstairs. He was very helpful throughout the quotation process, and worked collaboratively to identify areas that we could do ourselves to help with our budget. Once appointed, David and his team came in, and got the job done efficiently and to a very high standard. We had a very tight deadline to get the house sorted so our young family could move, and Davids worked extremely hard to help us get in when we asked. Further to that, David and his team were really pleasant, trustworthy, and great to work with. We are absolutely delighted with the results and would not hesitate to recommend Berkshire Plastering!!

Quote from Daniel and Ellen Watson


14th December 2016

I moved house in February 2015, the whole house needed extensive work. I was lucky enough that a friend recommended David after some builders left mid project. David and his team extended my ensuite and installed a new bathroom, the tiling is outstanding. They plastered and decorated the whole house, I cannot praise David and his team enough, the work is first class my house has been transformed. David remained in constant communication with me as I wasn't living in the property whilst the work was ongoing, and took great care to clean and tidy up each day, nothing was too much trouble from feeding the cat to taking in multiple deliveries. Delighted to be in my house for Christmas. Angela Heslop December 2016

Quote from Angela Heslop


15th May 2016

We live in a 1970's built property which started to feel tired and dated. We had to choose between moving to a new home or modernising our current home. After talking with David we decided to stay put and modernise our home. We are so pleased that we took this decision. We asked David to knock down an internal wall, strip wallpaper throughout the property, and then plaster and paint every single room. The end result is fantastic. The quality of the finish is far better than you would find in a brand new property. Our home now feels airy, clean and modern. The quality of David's workmanship is amazing. The service is personal but this doesn't limit the scope of the work that David can undertake. We are very grateful to David and his team for transforming our home into a beautiful modern property. You will be our first choice for any future house modelling project. You are a true professional! Thank you David.

Quote from Ian Mills


29th April 2016

This is not the first time David has carried out work for us and that, in itself, speaks volumes. David is always so professional, efficient and courteous. His work is of the highest standard and he tidies up thoroughly after the job is finished. We can recommend David highly in the knowledge that he won't let anyone down.

Quote from Janet and Barry Philpott


18th April 2016

David and Gerald have re-plastered our dining area, removing many layers of old paint and paper. The finish is smooth as glass. They were very careful to minimise dust etc and cleaned up completely afterwards - even polishing over the windows. Another excellent job, we are very pleased.

Quote from Mrs P Lowndes


29th March 2016

David and his team have just finished a complete renovation of our family bathroom and it is beautiful. The workmanship is perfect. David has undertaken several different jobs for us over the last 6 years (see my previous testimonial below!) and it always nice to have him and the team in the house.

Quote from Kathrine & James Denham


10th December 2015

David & his team have just finished building our new shower room (a coversion from a bedroom)and they have done an excellent job! The project started and finished on time they were neat & tidy and a thoroughy pleasant bunch of guys to have in the house!He was recommended to me and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to friends & family.

Quote from Tim & Lorna Firth


11th May 2015

David is, in a word, fantastic. I have renovated three houses over the past six years and so have met many trades, but never one as efficient and as hardworking as he is. With young children in the house, undertaking any building works can be worrying but they all took to David and his Dad instantly and looked out for them each morning during their time with us. My walls are like new. The finish is perfect every time. If you are looking for a plasterer, then look no further. Yes you will have to wait, but trust me, he is absolutely worth it!

Quote from Tracey Hemelge


9th May 2015

I would whole heartedly recommend Berkshire Plastering. Excellent professionalism, attention to detail and quality of work. One of the most courteous and obliging companies I have ever dealt with. We are thrilled with our new plasterwork coving.

Quote from Emma Taylor


19th April 2015

David has just completed an excellent job replastering the ceilings of our hall and landing which were previously a messy artex-type finish. He is a pleasure to work with and left everything spotless every day. Highly recommended.

Quote from Alan & Julie Gwynn


22nd December 2014

David completely renovated all the ceilings on the ground floor of our home - kitchen/dining room, lounge, hall and cloakroom. We had heavily artex-ed ceilings and some cracks, bulges and other irregularities. We now have completely smooth ceilings and covings which David also painted. The finish is amazing and has transformed our rooms. Everyone warned us that plastering was a very messy job; all I can say is there was minimal dust and it was all removed each day. David was really careful with everything as was his dad who worked with him on a couple of days. Both were polite and courteous. From my own professional experience, I would recommend David for exemplary project management. He made sure he understood exactly what we wanted before he started, he checked back regularly on points of detail, he arrived on time each day and finished exactly when he said he would. And the end result exceeded our expectations. The only downside was that we had to wait quite a long time because he is so busy - but it was worth waiting for him to do the work. I found him by personal recommendation and I have already recommended him to people I know.

Quote from Mrs P Lowndes


7th December 2014

David carried out a complete room re plaster/coving and the finish was excellent, so smooth it was like glass. He was always very courteous and extremely clean and tidy worker. We would definitely use him again and have no hesitation in recommending him.

Quote from Gill & Chris Day


19th July 2014

David has completed two jobs in our home in the past six months. The first, a major bathroom relocation, which he project managed and worked on over a seven week period in our absence. The final product far exceeded our expectations in design and quality of finish, and was completed on time and budget. Since then David has completed another bathroom upgrade, which once again was completed on time and budget, and the finish was superb. He is a person who can be trusted in every respect. His work is outstanding, and I will have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who wishes to contact me.

Quote from Barry Keech


21st June 2014

We contacted Berkshire Plastering on friends recommendation.David came,measured up the job i.e.to replaster bathroom and upgrade the kitchen.The quote was reasonable and the completed work was excellent,no fuss, no bother,everything was managed very efficiently.We reccmmend them.

Quote from Patricia and John


20th March 2014

David has carried out plastering to a brick wall and ceiling in Dining Room. A firstclass job finished to absolute perfection. I would recommend to anyone who requests a contact.

Quote from Marian Coombes


23rd January 2014

David has carried out a small but tricky bit of plastering for us in our kitchen/breakfast room to an absolutely perfect standard. The finish is so smooth, it feels like glass and it is almost too good to paint! Would recommend to anyone.

Quote from Sue and David


10th December 2013

David and his father are our craftsmen of choice. They have repaired brickwork, completely renovated the family bathroom and skimmed most of the ceilings in the house. I really cannot be effusive enough about the standard of workmanship and the level of professionalism that they bring to the job. Everything is always finished to David's extremely high standards and the work area is left immaculate at the end of each day. I cannot imagine being anything other than totally satisfied with the work done, and they are both so lovely to have around also!

Quote from Fiona Blackshaw


20th October 2013

David and Jessie did a fantastic job for us. Really nice guys and superb workmanship. The finish on our ceiling was outstanding. We can highly recommend and will definitely use them again.

Quote from Steve and Angela


3rd October 2013

I also found David in the little Green Book (always a good source of local suppliers) and was so glad I did. A fantastic service from start to finish and a great job too. Very professional, very friendly, great attention to detail and took great care to minimise any disruption. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Quote from Neil Chalfont


16th August 2013

I found Berkshire Plastering in The little green Book and went on the testimonials I found there. I have to say they were all absolutely deserved - polite prompt tidy and good quality workmanship .Lovely to deal with I would recommend to anyone looking for plastering inside or as in our case rendering outside as well.

Quote from roger whiteside


20th July 2013

David is a real craftsman who has now undertaken several jobs for us including converting a bathroom into a study and creating a bespoke cloakroom area. He had a very professional approach, his workmanship is excellent and he is a real perfectionist. He's also lovely to have around the house. On our jobs, David introduced us to the plumber and electrician that he works with and we have used them independently several times too. His Dad often helps out and his is similarly an excellent craftsman and really nice. We don't want anyone other than David and his team to work on our house at all now!

Quote from Kathrine Denham


6th July 2013

The short story: absolutely delighted; very highly recommended! I would certainly recommend Berkshire Plastering to a friend!

Longer story:

Having never hired a plasterer before it was with a little trepidation that I first contacted Berkshire Plastering to quote to cover the artex ceilings in the lounge, hall stairs and landing and all 4 bedrooms of my newly purchased 1970's house.

I have to say that, with Berkshire Plastering, my worries were entirely unfounded. I was delighted at every turn. From the first appointment - where David turned up on time and well prepared to provide the first estimate through to when he started work - very carefully using dust sheets whilst carrying out the works and through to when he completed the work - to an excellent standard, on time and on budget.

I was on a tight timetable and, thankfully, David was able to accommodate my needs. David was courteous, pleasant and helpful at every turn.

When each room was finished it was vacuumed thoroughly - so, other than a beautifully smooth bare plaster finish where the hideous artex surface had once been you just wouldn't have known he'd been in there. The quality of his work was tremendous. On completion he gave wonderfully helpful advice about what to do next with regards to decorating the new surfaces.

I could not give him a higher recommendation - absolutely top-notch; completely delighted!

Quote from Ben Hockley


31st May 2013

Excellent job. David (and his father) finished before time and left everything tidy. Very personable and a joy to have on the property. Would definitely use his services for any future work. Thank again.

Quote from Lin Evans


15th April 2013

Fast, efficient and a high standard of work. Absolutely delighted and would highly recommend their services.

Quote from Anne White


15th February 2013

We are really pleased with the professionalism that David carried out the work. First he always replied to email queries that we had. He made sure that he understood what we wanted. Although it was not a big task for him, he still made sure that it was done with utmost professionalism and punctuality. I have to also mention his ability to think out of the box and suggest a practical and sensible alternative design.
I am more than happy to endorse David as very reliable, trustworthy and professional and will certainly recommend him.

Quote from Rajesh


29th January 2013

Based on the high standard of work carried out previously we used David again, and his work lived up to our expectations. David plastered over artex in our kitchen after recessed lights were replaced, and skimmed the walls. As before the workmanship was to a very high standard, David also made sure that all was as clean and tidy as possible at the end of each day's work. He was always punctual, for both the work and all 'pre work' estimations and consultations. A very cheerful and pleasant person, meticulous in his work,would recommend without hesitation.Also used his recommended electrician for the lighting work, and would recommend as well.

Quote from Mr R Robinson


30th November 2012

Work completed Nov 2012.
David replaced some plasterboard in a bedroom and re-skimmed over the top again with new plaster.
We had a decorator around afterwards who had a good look at David's work and said that
it was of top quality - very smooth surfaces etc... as a fellow professional he
was extremely impressed with David's work, as are we.
David is personable, friendly, tidy, efficient and listens really attentively to your requirements! What more can you ask for? In a word "excellent!" Would highly recommend David to others judging by the job he did for us at our home.

Quote from Nigel Milton


22nd November 2012

I cannot recommend highly enough the work carried out by David and his father. They removed the artex from my kitchen ceiling and re-plastered it; plastered the kitchen walls and levelled the floor where appropriate. The finish on the plastering is smoother than you would have thought possible. David responded to my emails and phone calls promptly and could not have been more accommodating before and throughout the work. The work was started on time at short notice and finished within the time stated. They arrived early and left the kitchen clean and tidy before leaving. Everyone who has seen my new kitchen comments on the smoothness and high standard of the plastering. This is a 5* service and I would not hesitate in recommending David in your home.

Quote from Daphne Bone


24th October 2012

David did a wonderful plastering job for me. I highly recommend his services. David is responsive when you need to contact him; he works cleanly and effectively and wants to please his customers.

Quote from Sandie Howell


26th May 2012

David recently plastered over the Artex ceiling in our bathroom and we also had an extractor fan installed at the same time. David was very friendly and the quality of the work was excellent. He also arrived on time and left the house clean and tidy. I will definitely use him again when I next need some plastering done.

Quote from Wayne Honey


26th May 2012

David has done a professional job for us in removing the artex from three ceilings and replastering them to a high standard. He was very reliable and always contactable by various means. He undertook the work in the time stated and left all areas exceptionally clean and tidy.

We would certainly highly recommend this very personable young man.

Gillian Churchill

Quote from G Churchill


26th February 2012

David carried out a very difficult insulation job in our loft quickly and efficiently. We were pleased with both the results and the care with which the process was carried out, and would thoroughly recommend his services.

Quote from Adrian Alford


6th January 2012

Work completed 4/5th January 2012
David was asked to skim the ceiling in four rooms as we no longer wanted artex swirls.
His work was exceptional. At the begining of the job David made sure all floor areas were covered. At the end of the job he cleaned the rooms thoroughly. We had nothing to do throughout the two days he was with us.
We would recommend David without hesitation. From quote to completion a perfect service.

Quote from


30th October 2011

David has just completed what could have been a nightmare of a job - a really messy one (knocking off 2 walls of plaster,dry lining etc) . They were fantastic - realiable, great workmanship, amazingly clean with an excellent finish. We would strongly recommend David and his team.

Ann and John Galpin

Quote from Ann and John Galpin


3rd April 2011

We had a regular plasterer who was unavailable, so had to find somebody without recommendation, and Berkshire Plastering came up. Getting a quote was very painless, and they were quickly available. The quality of the plastering was excellent, and I have never seen a plasterer leave a job, each evening, in such a tidy condition. Would highly recomend David for any future plastering requirements you may have.

Quote from Colin Pepall


5th January 2011

Berkshire Plastering repaired our water-damaged ceilings and has done a magnificent job. The work is flawless. David was a joy to have around the house and treated our home with the upmost respect.

Quote from Mrs Stone


23rd September 2010

We had bedroom walls and a ceiling plastered as well as new coving fitted. David’s approach was very professional, flexible, and solution-focused. The quality of work was superb. The work was carried out whilst we were away on Holiday and on our return we were expecting to come back to mess and lots of dust, of which there was absolutely none. We very much look forward to working with David on future projects and do not hesitate in recommending David and Berkshire Plastering.

Quote from Toby Slade


4th July 2010

I absolutely recommend this chap. I have years of experience in the building trade I have NEVER met a plaster who was, so clean / concerned / caring / pleasant / trustworthy and amiable - a class act which you will find difficult to find elsewhere - I will only use David in the future.

Quote from Frazer Broomby

Quote from Mr & Mrs Kelsey, Wokingham


4th March 2010

David carried out 'reskimming' the walls in our hall, stairs,landing and lounge. The result was of a very high standard,an almost glass like very smooth finish. David was also very clean and tidy and at the end of each day the working area was left in a clean and tidy state. Also very impressed that at each 'stage' from the initial appointment for quotation through to finishing the job David was always punctual and was very prompt with his quotation.I would recommend David without hesitation.

Quote from Mr R. Robinson


6th November 2009

I have recently had a conservatory built and sought quotes for plastering. David arrived punctually to give a quote and we found his quote to be competitive. David started on the day we agreed and finished when he said he would. Each day he cleared all his equipment away and on the last day hoovered throughout. The end result could not be faulted. The plaster work is like glass and we would not hesitate to recommend him to friends and family.

Quote from Richard Hawes


6th July 2009

David replastered the ceiling in our lounge. He did a very good job within the timescale discussed. The work is of very high standard for a very competitive price. David was very tidy and left the room clean on completing the job. Would recommend him without hesitation. July 2009.

Quote from Mrs W Reynolds, Twyford


18th February 2009

We are writing to highly recommend the plastering services provided by Mr David Compton.

Our hall, stairs and landing were in dreadful condition with cracking to the ceilings and a thick covering of the dreaded Artex. David fully restored the walls and ceilings to a wonderfully smooth condition, with no blemishes whatsoever. For what was an essentially "messy" job, David was remarkably tidy leaving our home each day in a clean condition. Furthermore, David proved to be a friendly, trustworthy and thoroughly nice young man.

We could not have been more satisfied with the results and we look forward to employing David again for further projects.

Quote from Mr & Mrs Lipski, Wokingham


18th February 2009

My kitchen is looking wonderful and I now enjoy cooking in it! You are a perfectionist, the plasterwork is very smooth and the tiling is great. Thank you David.

Quote from S Gibson


18th February 2009

David came over to price up a full repair on a water damaged ceiling. We agreed an excellent price and work was scheduled for a few days later. David was prompt, courteous, extremely professional and personable. He worked tirelessly all day (8.00 til very late) until he was happy with the job.

I was absolutely delighted with the finished work and David's attitude to getting a perfect finish. This is a dedicated, skilled guy who knows his trade and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Quote from J Meade, Wokingham


18th February 2009

David is a hardworking and trustworthy individual who did a tremendous job replastering several of our rooms. He quoted a competitive price for the job and did extra hours with no charge to make sure that it was finished perfectly. We will have David back to finish the other rooms. I am happy to recommend him.
