I contacted Concept Plastering to repair the ceiling in my garage which had collapsed. I was very pleased and impressed with the excellent repair work carried out by Nerio. I feel he is one of the most proficient tradesmen that I have ever dealt with. I would highly recommend Nerio for any similar plastering repair work.
“There are five qualities that make a great plasterer, a very nice person, very reliable, very precise, very clean, very organized, this is Nerio.”
– Tim Venten – Building Contractor
“Nerio of Concept Plastering is a treasure. He arrives when planned and works steadily, planning what is needed for each day.He supplies all of his own scaffolding, lighting and heating. Our Victorian house, with its solid plaster, had suffered badly during the drought and afterwards as the rains swelled the clay base on which it is built, so it was a great challenge for Nerio’s dedication and ingenuity.
Plastering, by definition, is a dusty, messy job but Nerio, always having our comfort in mind, took elaborate precautions to minimise dust invasion by sealing doors and, in our case, choosing to come and go via a builder’s plank through the bay window. As a result we could live in the house while he restored our front room and entire central passage way.
But the salient point is that Nerio is a craftsman who takes great pride in his work, setting himself astoundingly high standards. From long and varied experience he understands the nature of plasterwork and paces his interventions accordingly. His unique method of removing the cracked plaster along with a margin on each side has so far prevented any further cracks in our rooms. We were thrilled when he offered to repair the ceiling rose which had suffered over its 130 year lifespan. He did a marvellous job which was the finishing touch to a masterly renovation.
We heartily recommend his work.”

My mother in law’s kitchen ceiling was water damaged & Nerio, Concept Plastering, came & completed the job. He did such a wonderful job I had no hesitation in calling Nerio when my own garage ceiling started to collapse. Nerio did a fantastic job on the garage ceiling. He was punctual, professional & extremely clean. At the end of each day the garage was left very clean & tidy. I was extremely impressed with the finished product & would recommend Nerio to anyone who needs plastering work done. I would not hesitate to contact Nerio again should I require any plastering done.

“We would highly recommend concept plastering, we have a big old house with lots of cracked plaster, Nerio smoothed the walls so they looked like new plaster, one room was completely re-plastered and despite old timberwork the result is flat and flawless-painting has been easy! Nerio pays attention to detail, patiently finishing the surface, he also keeps a very tidy workspace, keeping plaster dust to a minimum-which is a huge help with small children and pets in the house.”

“As a builder, I have dealt with Nerio at Concept Plastering for over 15 years. During this time Nerio has taken care of all my rendering and complex plastering needs. I have always found him to be professional, reliable and punctual. As the majority of our work is renovations to existing houses, it is important for my business that all tradesmen on site are personable and Nerio has always been someone I can rely on to interact with customers well in this regard.”

“Whenever we have a need for plaster repairs on any of our jobs – the only company we call is Concept Plastering. Nerio is one of the best plasterers we have ever seen in action! One of the most difficult jobs he helped us on was part of the renovation of the hall at the Old Galilee School in South Melbourne. The hall had been badly run down over the years, and the plaster was rotten through water damage. This is a heritage building, so we knew we needed Nerio to do his thing, and bring the walls back to life. When he finished, the entry alcove had been brought back to its glory. We would never bother calling anyone else. Nerio has years of experience in both sheet plaster work, and render work. Whether it’s a small repair to a rental property, or major renovation – the quality and service from Concept Plastering is second to none.”

We recently contracted Concept Plastering to complete the difficult task of soundproofing and plastering three internal walls in our home. The professionalism and pride taken in the work was outstanding and we are extremely impressed with the final result. We highly recommend Concept Plastering.

“I employed Concept Plastering to repair a water-damaged ceiling and to finish the subsequent painting required to complete the job. Our house is 110 years old so it’s hard to make the repair fit in naturally with the existing plasterwork.
They were reliable- always turning up when they said they would. Nerio did a great job on the replastering which was a huge task, requiring a lot of plaster removal and messy preparation. He made sure the rest of the house was protected from the dust and the final result was perfect.
I have no hesitation in recommending Concept Plastering. They are very professional and friendly and do a fantastic job.”

I’m just sending a couple of comments regarding the great job that Nerio from Concept Plastering did when working at my house. We had a water damaged ceiling that Nerio came to repair that required the whole ceiling to be replaced. In doing the job he was very thorough: removing insulation and replacing it as new boards went up; keeping the area very clean and not allowing dust into the rest of the house; and going to a great effort to match the style of ceiling roses, cornices and ceiling finishes with others in the home. If anyone is looking for a very professional and true tradesman in his craft I couldn’t recommend Nerio highly enough. I have other jobs in mind and he’ll by my first and only call.

Nerio was commissioned to do several jobs during our renovation in 2009. He patched cracks in our internal brick walls in the old part of our house (Art Deco double brick home, circa 1938) which had moved considerably during the drought. He also had to pull down and re-brick the worst offending wall – it had a crack about 4-5cm wide in parts . Almost three years on, there isn’t a sign at all that the cracks or Nerio were ever here.
Nerio also had to patch exterior cracks along the front of our house, this also looks great.
Finally, Nerio had to apply an art-deco texture to the walls in the main living space where the new renovation occurred. This plastering has been done so well you wouldn’t know where the old house ends and the new begins. It’s perfect.
I cannot recommend Nerio highly enough. His work is fantastic and he was a pleasure to deal with.

Nerio replaced the plaster ceiling in a bedroom due to water damage. He did an amazing job, was always on time and communicated with us on the job progress. Nerio was very respectful with our home cleaning up before leaving each day. We would confidently recommend Nerio to family & friends.
