    "We recently engaged Darrin to undertake plastering work in our living room and bathroom. We are in the middle of a large do up on our house and Darrin is one of the only contractors we have used in this process that we would happily use again - he has proved to us that not all contractors are cowboys! He was friendly, prompt in his communication, arrived on time every day and most importantly has done an absolutely beautiful job. The work he has done compared to other plasterers used early on in our do-up is like night and day, he is very skilled at his craft. We would highly recommend Darrin to anyone."

    "We contacted Darrin based on his 100% outstanding reviews. From the first initial phone call Darrin was very professional. He arrived on time, was tidy and did a wonderful job on a quite difficult 110 year old ornate ceiling in our historic villa. He is a true craftsman in what he does. He certainly knows every aspect of plastering. I doubt there would be many plasterers in Auckland who are as experienced as Darrin. Darren is friendly and very pleasant to deal with"

He recently carried out the plaster work for our renovation which included new walls and fixing up some existing walls which were in pretty bad shape. Now the entire house looks brand new. Thank you!"

    "Darren recently completed an extremely tricky plastering job that no one else wanted to go near - and did a brilliant job. He was friendly, arrived when he said he would and flexible in our somewhat chaotic building site. He even came out on a Sunday to fit our job in urgently. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Darrin, and to top it all off he was very reasonably priced."

    "Darrin did a fantastic job plastering the ceilings throughout our home! He responded promptly to our request for an initial quote. This came in very reasonably and he worked around our schedule and slotted us in sooner than we had expected. He was extremely easy to deal with, worked flexibly around our household of 3 children and cats and was very tidy. As a bonus, he was a really nice guy to have around! We are extremely pleased with the great job he did and it's good to know we now have an excellent plasterer at hand who we will be definitely using in the future and who we can highly recommend to others. Thanks again Darrin!"

    "We are very happy with the work that Darrin has done with all the plastering in my Dad's home unit. He is very proud of his work and is every right to be. We've never met a tradesman so keen & willing to work. He has been working away in hot humid & stuffy 28 degrees conditions most days and never loses his great sense of humour!! We would recommend Darrin to anybody without hesitation if they are wanting a really good, professional plastering job! It was pleasure to meet Darrin and we were thrilled to see his finished work. This guy is really good with communication too - and he worked out & gave us a quote the same night that he looked at the place. This guy is really switched on!! Cheers to Darrin!!"

    "Darrin was referred to me to fill in the holes made when I had some downlights moved. He was in contact with me within a couple of days to make an appointment for the following day. He turned up on time, was ultra friendly, gave a very acceptable quote and was onto the job in no time. I left him there with my cat while I was at work and I returned home to find he had cleaned up after himself and the cat was still indoors. (I had given him instructions to keep the front door closed so he couldn't escape onto the road). He did a fantastic job and I would highly recommend him. He seems passionate about what he does and it's obvious he takes great pride in his work. Highly recommended!!"

    "Darrin responded very fast and did a superb job on the walls. He was very friendly and efficient. He turned up when he said he would which is a big thumps to him. Due to the walls not being primed initally Darrin said that it could possibly flake. A small section did and Darrin attended to this fast (sunday morning) to fix it at no charge. I would highly reccommend Darrin and will be using him again for future.

    "Fortunately Darrin was able to squeeze me in within a day of quoting and turned up on time. I had a couple of areas for him to cover before painting and he did so expertly. He was very patient as I wondered around inside looking for other patches I'd missed and he actually examined defective areas and explained their condition and what should be done.
    I'd happily recommend Darrin and will certainly call him for any future plastering work.

    Darrin also did a great job, tailoring the work to fit our needs. We would definitely contact him for any future work.

    Highly recommended!"

Our house has not been an easy job with old plaster walls, negative detailing etc, after Darrin had finished; what had looked old, uneven and messy, looked brand new - it was amazing."

    "Simply brilliant! I can\'t reccomend Darrin highly enough...

    I handed Darrin what I thought was a hospital pass after pulling an old kitchen out and asking him to turn a wall (and ceiling complete with damaged coving) that was a complete dogs breakfast, warped, cracked and full of holes from removed tiles, electrical switches and a range hood, into a wall again...

    After a couple of hours Darrin handed me back a wall that I didn\'t think possible looking at what he started with. The finish is so well done that it doesn\'t need to be touched with sandpaper before painting! If you want great plastering work done then Darrin is the man to do it! I know I\'ll certainly be calling him again..."

    "Darrin was amazing !! Saw his van parked up the street & he came a talked to me & my husband whilst a coat was drying. We had a smallish job which I then turned into a large job. Darrin worked around our other tradespeople, was flexible & 100% reliable, wonderful to work with & we were delighted with the the finished job.He was extremely clean & tidy & left me nothing to do at the end of his plastering day (haha).Darrin told me the finish would be flawless & it is !! We have an old house with not very straight walls & even with my housewife painting they look fantastic, because the preperation was top class !! Thanks Darrin for turning my old home into a modern family home that I enjoy have people around to. Thanks also for helping out when you knew my daughter was coming back from overseas & you fitted me in so it would be finished...I appreciate all your work every single day & I would recommend you to anyone. Kind regards Alyson :)"

    "Darrin recently plastered our new bathroom and the finished job was completed to such a high standard we only needed to lightly sand one or two patches. We were so impressed we got him to do replaster our hallway too. Darrin was a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end. He did everything he could to accommodate our timeframe as we needed the job completed before moving back in with our young children. I will certainly be using Darrin again and recommending him to family and friends."

Contrary to some shockers I have had in the past I would use them for any future jobs I have and Darren is also a very pleasant workman who gets on with the job instead of pointing out the obvious idiots who have worked there before which is a breath of fresh air "

    He kept in touch and had good communication with us and kept to all the things that he said and we said would be done. Above all, his work was excellent.

    Will be calling on Darrin next time for any further plastering work that we need.

    Hes polite, extremely business like and will always talk to you properly about the job, whats needed and also how best to do it - in a timeframe
    Ive also found him extremely honest - if something doesnt need doing or cant be done, he tells it like it is - theres no way hes there to rip you off or drag the job out longer than he needs to.
    In a profession which is often seen for cowboys, Darrin is a refreshing change and honest hard worker and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend him to all

    "We've used McLay Plastering for repairs and renovations at three family houses over a number of years - most recently to repair a solid plaster ceiling and curved wall in the lounge.

    Darrin's work in gibbing and solid plastering is always of a very high standard, he's excellent at explaining what will and won't work, is reliable, and is a friendly bloke to have about the place while he works.

    Other tradesmen, especially the painters, have commented on the high qualify of Darrin's work. We've recommended McLay Plastering to friends and neighbours over the years and they've always been very pleased with the work."
