Philip's listed building

Andrew and Jack just finished the work a few hours ago. I am very pleased with the result, and also the way they’ve approached the job over the three visits – no mess, covering over the all the furniture, vacuum cleaning and, not least, the plasterwork. I can certainly recommend your company to any owner of a listed building who has similar plaster contamination.

Helen's ceiling and cornice repairs

I just wanted to say thanks so much for your work on our ceiling and repairing the cornice. The guys that did it have been excellent. They’ve done a brilliant job, we’re so pleased with the finished result and that they managed to save the cornice runs which looked to be in a terrible state (other people had said it would need to be replaced). It was great having experts that we trusted working on the house and they were also great at tidying up etc which is all a welcome change from a lot of the tradesmen that we have used. I’d definitely recommend you in the future.

Alison Hewison

We are totally delighted with how the finished coving looks. The workmen have done a brilliant job. They are friendly, polite and importantly considerate by not letting our cats out of the backdoor. As for cleaning up, Dave and I were totally happy with the outcome. I would certainly recommend Ryedale Plasterers to anyone who had our type of problem.

Samuel Smith’s Old Brewery

“Ryedale Plasterers has carried out two contracts for us. The first was an extensive repair to the rendered exterior of a Victorian farmhouse, which was meticulously researched and carried out in lime mortar and finished in a traditional copperas application. The second involved the repair and restoration of two highly ornate 18th-century cornices in the brewery offices. All work was carried out to the highest standard.”
