Client Location Review Date
B Deng Cyncoed, Cardiff Very happy about Sacha's work. We needed to renovate a 1960s house. Sacha finished all his work -- from 'dot and dab'ing walls, to reboarding and skimming over ceilings -- in excellent quality. He also helped us to identify and rectify various issues of the house, and gave valuable advice on the renovation. We are particularly impressed by Sacha's knowledge about his trade as well as his pursuit of quality. 18 March 2018

Lyndsey Rushton New Zealand Road, Cardiff "Sacha completed work for us in October 2015 plastering our living, dining room and hallway. We found him to be professional and a real perfectionist who created a flawless finish in our somewhat complex project. His work is exceptional and has on many occasions been appreciated by other tradesmen during our renovation. We will not hesitate to get Sacha back later in the year for more work." 05 October 2016

Fred Federici 74 Fidlas Avenue, Llanishen, Cardiff, CF14 ONZ "We had Sacha to plaster the dilapidated kitchen of the house we bought. He did such a wonderful job that 6 months later, we have asked him to skim our front room, back room, and dining room, which he completed to excellent quality and with real value for money (also compared to Which recommended pricing) The finish of his plastering is superb, easy to decorate by professionals or dyi enthusiasts. And when Sacha starts his jobs, he is full of useful advice and suggestions to get the best results, which is one additional reasons why we had him back. When on the job, he did not stop until the job was done to his high standards and our full satisfaction, at the price agreed. Fully and wholeheartedly recommend his services." 11 January 2016
Owen Thomas Victoria Avenue, Canton, CF5 1ET "I originally asked Sacha to remove artex from a number of ceilings in my new home. However, I was so impressed by his work that I soon had him signed up for many other plastering jobs too. Unsurprisingly, he is booked well-ahead, although he has made every effort to fit me in as soon as possible. His finished work is excellent and he is a joy to work with." 03 January 2016

I wouldn't hesitate to have him work for me again in the future. 08 October 2015
James Coleman Cyfartha Street, Roath, Cardiff, CF24 3HE Cannot recommend Sacha highly enough. He was in constant contact prior to starting to discuss the job.

Ashley McAvoy Vishwell Road, Cardiff, CF5 1GE "Sacha Blake is a very professional and skilled craftsman, providing a high quality plastering service.

S Graham Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan Sacha re-plastered my living room last year. The plaster was very uneven in places, and it had blown in some areas. The ceiling needed re-skimming, but because there was distemper underneath the existing skim, there was a possibility of the weight of the new skim causing the plaster to detach. Sacha was very thorough in making me aware of all the possibilities, and I felt confident in his analysis of the potential problems. He was conscientious in his work, very clean and tidy, and was a pleasure to have around. The chimney breast was particularly rough and uneven, and Sacha worked hard to render the surface perfectly smooth. Sacha is a very genuine person, who carries out his work to the highest standards. I have no hesitation in recommending him. 04 February 2015
Rachel Wilson-Dickson Canton, Cardiff Sacha fixed and plastered my bathroom ceiling which had a whopping great hole in it. Despite half of it falling down onto his head, he worked professionally and diligently and my new bathroom ceiling is BEAUTIFUL. Sacha takes his work really seriously and it shows in the end product. Despite being down to earth and well mannered, he's an artist as far as plastering is concerned and is definitely a perfectionist. It's really good to find a plasterer who works to such an incredibly high standard and yet gives an absolutely fair price, as I've had a few dodgy jobs done in the past. I will always use Blake Plastering from now on and would recommend them to anyone. 04 February 2015
Mr Dan Jewson Emerald Street, Cardiff, CF24 1QB Sacha undertook the re rendering of the front of our house. This was a pretty big job which required old render hacking back and then several layers of re rendering applied. From the moment I approached Sacha to get a quote it was clear he was very thorough and conscientious - keen to explain exactly what work would be required and explain matters in lay terms as necessary. The job turned into a bigger task as work progressed, requiring additional pointing etc but Sacha kept us well informed throughout and up to speed with the additional costs. He is honest and trustworthy and I was happy to give him a key to the house so he could let himself in whilst I was out at work. Both he and Joe worked well and finished the work to a high standard. I would certainly recommend Sacha and Joe to friends and family and I would happily employ his services again." 27 November 2014
James O'Sullivan Ryder Street, Pontcanna, Cardiff, CF11 9BS "Sacha was happy to do just a couple of small pieces of plastering for us (a removed velux and a damp wall section) and he did them to a very high standard and at a fair rate. A lot of plasterers are only interested in doing big jobs so it is unusual to come across one who will genuinely consider any size of job, and work to a high standard. Will definitely be using him again in future, and will recommend to others." 30 October 2014
Russell Dobbins Cornerswell Road, Penarth, CF64 2UW, Vale of Glamorgan "We called Sacha in to board out, all walls and ceiling, and finish a large bay fronted bedroom in our Edwardian house. It was quite a big job. We were very pleased with Sacha's professionalism, the quality of his work and the final price. We would definitely use him again. 16 October 2014
Andrew Lockyer St. Mellons, Cardiff, Wales Kitchen and fireplace partially skimmed in readiness for a new kitchen and a smaller fire (following removal of an old Back Burner fire). No doubting the quality of Sacha's work, I had been let down by a previous plasterer and the availability of Sacha to complete the work within a couple of days notice was worth the extra money. Initial pricing was touching £150 higher than the original quote, but Sacha was happy to negotiate both in terms of cost and scope. So the above rating is as per the definitions, the costs were close to as expected, the Service was good, the quality of the finish was outstanding. 06 October 2014
Dominic Turato Manor Way, Cardiff, Wales "Had Sacha board a bedroom ceiling then plaster along with a small wall. I was very pleased with the results and also the price at such short notice. Very well mannered, punctual and easy to take to. I also liked how he made the time to explain things in detail. Would highly recommend to anyone and would definitely use his services again. Dominic." 29 September 2014
Jennifer Wilkinson Railway Street, Splott, Cardiff "I needed a bedroom skimming, and Sacha came round to the house to discuss the work required. He had a lot of suggestions for how the work could be done, and explained all the options clearly. He provided a quote soon after, and carried out the work as described to an excellent standard. He was easy to deal with, excellent communication, and very cheerful! Definitely recommended." 21 September 2014
Gareth McCarthy Heathmeed, Heath, Cardiff, CF14 3PJ I used Blake Plastering to repair and skim a bathroom ceiling that was damaged and peeling. I agreed a very reasonable price with Sacha and he carried out the work promtly and to a very high standard. Due to his skilled workmanship and after following his advice on decoratating new plaster work, the result is excellent and makes a big difference to the bathroom. I will need further plastering in the future and will certainly use Blake Plastering again. 04 September 2014
Robie Parton Heol Stradling, Whitchurch, Cardiff, CF14 IPU "Sacha was able to fit me in a short notice, arrived on time and worked quick, did a good job of plastering wall and ceiling, will contact for a quote on future work." 03 September 2014

George Robertson Oakwood Street, Pontypridd, Wales I had asked for blown plaster behind a radiator to be replaced and skim the hall, stair well, and bathroom walls. All problems were dealt with very effectively and the quality was second to non. Even came back an extra day to carry out work not originally asked for. When asked to recommend a plasterer, without hesitation Blake Plastering would be my first and only recommendation. 16 July 2014

Avkash Jain Mill Road, Lisvane, Cardiff, CF14 0UG I don't normally do reviews but I felt I must as it would be a disservice to Sacha. Completely professional but also a lovely guy, we are so happy with plastering it could have been done by a renaissance artist!!

Jasmine Luck Pentwyn, Cardiff CF23 7EY Sacha was friendly and professional and lovely to work with. He arrived on time, completed the work in a timely fashion, and it looks great.

Huw Jones Heol Chappell, Whitchurch, Cardiff, CF14 2DB Sacha came to do a considerable amount of work in our new house, re-plastering the 3 bedrooms (whole rooms) and most of the Thick artex ceilings that we had throughout the house, and did this to a great standard. Towards the end, some artex was still showing through on our kitchen ceiling. I called him to say that we were worried about painting this with some artex pattern still showing through. Sacha came within a couple of days to completely replaster the ceiling to put it right-and free of charge. We were impressed with this reaction and the customer service involved. Sacha is knowledgable and passionate about plastering and takes pride in his work and has done work to a great finish. 06 March 2014

Also his quotes are very competitive." 10 November 2013
Philip Aspden North Llandaff, Cardiff, Wales "When removing wallpaper in my daughter's bedroom ready for repainting I was horrified to find that two large areas of plaster became loose - such is the danger of using a steam wallpaper stripper too aggressively! Blake Plastering came to the rescue: a fast email response to my enquiry; a prompt visit to assess and provide a (very competitive) quote; a willingness to adjust the diary to complete the job sooner than expected. Sacha was very personable and professional. He clearly knows his job and has been well trained. I had complete confidence in his work and was delighted with the finished product, feeling assured that my home had been respected and the work carried out to a high standard, at an attractive price." 09 July 2013

Daniel Hughes - Safe Install Electrical Solutions Bridgend, Wales As a self employed electrician I have experienced many sub standard plastering contractors, either with reliability issues and/or with the quality of their workmanship. I met Sacha during a house rewire in Dec 2012. Sacha is professional and is a very likeable person and a pleasure to work with.

Mr Richard Lasbury Fairwater, Cardiff I contacted Blake Plastering for a quote to skim a stud wall. A reasonable price was agreed before the job commenced. Sacha arrived on time as promised. Carried out an excellent job - even though it wasn't as simple as first expected, this was due to the nature of the original wall construction. The work area was kept clean and tidy at all times. Sacha then ensured that I understood exactly how the wall should be prepared and painted once the plaster had dried. Overall a fantastic job carried out by a genuine tradesman. I wouldn't hesitate to contact Sacha in the future to carry out any further plastering. Thank you! 08 October 2012

Juila Toropoc Hayes Building, Cardiff We had quite a big hole in one of the hallway walls. As we are living in a rented property, it was very important to find somebody who could have made the wall look like new and in total harmony with the rest of the hallway. We found Sacha via the Internet and, after an initial quote, we decided to ask him to proceed with the repair. He conducted the repair in two sessions - the first one reserved to plastering and the second one a few days later reserved to painting. He did a fantastic job and the wall is now perfectly flat and smooth and, very important, the paint matches exactly the surrounding walls. He was also very tidy and clean, bringing his own plastic sheets to cover the floor and even hovering after himself, so there was nothing left for us to do once he had gone! We are definitely recommending Sacha for any type of plastering/repair that he is qualified to do, as he is prompt, trustworthy, meticulous and professional. We hope we will not need him in the near future, but just in case another plastering job will be required at our property, we will not hesitate to give him a call! . Julia & Andreas 11 April 2012
Jamie Carter Princes Street, Roath, Cardiff, CF24 3PS Sacha completed a ceiling skim and a tricky rebuild of some damaged coving in a 1920s house – very impressive results. He did the job at short notice, too. Easy to get on with and very professional. Thanks! 09 April 2012

Helen Lumsden 31 Cwrt-Y-Vill Road, Penarth, Cardiff, CF64 3HP Thank you Sacha for sorting out our hallway at such short notice to a great standard - professional service and competitive rates - would recommend 07 December 2011
Lewis & Mari Jones Thornhill Road, Thornhill, Cardiff, Wales. Our bedroom ceiling was very old and in quite a bad condition. After contacting a number of plasterers in Cardiff to view the work we needed, we decided to ask Sacha to do our plastering. He stood out from the other plasterers that visited because he clearly knew what he was talking about and spent time explaining our options. His prices are very reasonable and after finishing the work, which I must say was impressively smooth, left our house very clean. He is very conscientious with his work, has an eye for detail and clearly has a passion for what he does. Thanks Sacha, we'd be happy to recommend you. 25 November 2011
Aimee Bohanna - House Malvern, Worcester, UK Sacha Blake plastered my loft and fire place to a very high standard. The loft comprises of some very challenging angles and a particularly awkward storage space, none of which were too difficult for Sacha to tackle.

Dylan Vaz Ffordd Ty Unnos Sacha was professional from the moment I was in contact about a plastering work. Good time keeping in visiting to assess the work to be done.

Would recommend Sacha without any reservation. Dylan. Cardiff 06 November 2011
Louise O'Rourke Caradoc Close, St. Mellons CF3 OLQ I contacted Sacha after having been let down by another plasterer at last minute. Sacha went out of his way to help me. Having spoken to him on Saturday he had arranged for my kitchen to be plastered on Monday! Ricky (the plasterer who did the work for me)did a great job on my walls which were originally in quite bad condition. I would definitely recommend Blake Plastering, Sacha is very reliable, professional and clearly passionate about plastering and ensures that a high quality job is carried out. Many Thanks! Louise 03 November 2011
Rhydian Ball Cantreff Close, Thornhill, Cardiff, CF14 9HF Would thoroughly recommend Sacha from Blake Plastering. Required my landing, stairwell and living room skimmed. The main wall in my living room was in a bad way with plaster off the wall and down to the render. Sacha quoted me a very reasonable price for the work required and even worked through the August Bank Holiday to complete the work. This required Sacha to let himself into my house and work unsupervised. The quality of the work was to an exceptional standard and my house was left in a very clean condition. Sacha takes great pride in the quality of his work and genuinely loves the art of plastering. 27 September 2011
Ed Rumney, Cardiff Sach originally quoted on skimming walls and ceiling in two upstairs rooms. After we discovered various structural issues with the house, Sacha ended up doing much more than originally required, with general building and remedial work as well as plastering three complete rooms. He gave us a very fair price for the extra work as well as the original planned work, as well as going beyond the call of duty in helping us arrange third party opinions on our discoveries. In terms of his actual work, his attention to detail is unrivalled, he left the house cleaner than he found it every day and the final finish is pretty much perfect. I would not hesitate to recommend Sach to anyone in need of the services he provided for us. Thanks! 19 July 2011
Dr. Daniel Passaro Ninian Road, Roath Park, Cardiff Good work from a very dedicated plasterer. Demonstrates good passion for what he does and this shows through the work he completes. Highly recommended! 08 June 2011
Rob Attridge Llanfair Road, Pontcanna, Cardiff, CF11 1BQ Sacha plastered the walls & ceiling of our main bedroom. He was extremely trustworthy (we were out the majority of the time), he sets himself very high standards of work and and was exceptionally clean and tidy throughout the work so there was very little disruption to the rest of the house. There were multiple problem areas such as large parts of blown plaster, very unstable ceiling, and parts of damp coming through and he was able to offer good solutions and balanced advice. He also gave us useful tips for the rest of house! We would definitely use him again in future. 27 May 2011
Mark Wright Pennant Crescent, Lakeside, Cardiff Probably one of the cleanest plasterers we have ever had and obviously takes great care in his work. Nice chap to have around the house and not 'cheeky' like so many tradesmen are these days. Seems to take great pride in his work and would recommend him to those looking for a honest and unhurried tradesman. 12 May 2011
Craig & Racheal McCormac Johnston Rd, Llanishen, Cardiff We thought we had an impossible task to get that ceiling looking that good. But he did it.

A Forse Canton, Cardiff Sacha made an invisible repair to my kitchen ceiling following a leak. He's blended the repair into the rest of the ceiling perfectly. Sacha returned my call almost immediately, quoted the same evening and managed to squeeze the job in before Christmas. He did an excellent job, left no mess and clearly takes a pride in his work. He followed it up with a phone call a few days later to check I was happy with the work done, which was a nice touch. I'll definitely use him for any future plastering and highly recommend him. 01 January 2011
Richard & Sian Banks Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan Sacha Plastered all 3 stories of our hall and landings. It was an old victorian property that was in bad condition. He did an excellent job throughout. He carried out some work that wasn't expected and had pride and enthusiasm in his work. It came in on schedule and was excellent value for money. Sacha is a tidy and conscientious worker who was a pleasure to have around the house. 13 December 2010
A French Canton, Cardiff Professional, courteous, considerate, clean, communicative, efficient and reliable are all justifiable terms to describe what turned out to be considerable work Sacha undertook in my bathroom.

Sharon Phillips Llanmartin, Newport, Wales Sacha boarded and plastered our living room, dining room and kitchen with minimum disruption, even when we had to re-schedule at the last minute.

Heather Webber Riverside, Cardiff We have an old house which had many hidden problems - uneven ceilings, wonky walls, many areas of blown plaster and no right angles. Sacha completely plastered two rooms, got rid of all Artex on the ceilings, and dealt with all of the problems leaving a lovely smooth finish. He kept us informed of any issues and how long he expected the job to take. Despite all of the problems, he finished the job on time and to the price agreed. He was conscientious and left the house as well as the rooms in a clean, tidy order. We were very pleased with the job and service and would recommend Blake plastering. Thanks Sacha. 31 July 2010
Clare Hollinshead Salop Place, Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan Plastering over artex on all walls and ceilings to the halls, stairs and landings on 3 floors was exceptionally completed in good time and for a good price.

Tony Richards Caerau, Cardiff Booked Mr. Blake to plaster the whole of my kitchen. From the start the finish very professional! Absolutely excellent value for money! Ran into a few problems during the job because the walls were in a very bad condition which meant Mr. Blake had to do an additional two days work which he didn't actual charge me - a man of his word! Overall fantastic workmanship will certainly use Mr. Blake again in the near future as my girl friend now wants her walls done :-) All the best --Tony... 16 May 2010

J P A Blake Wiltshire, UK This was a job on a mediaeval house dating back to 1412 that needed care and expertise, particularly with regard to lime plastering, a time honoured technique which is particularly applicable to old buildings and which English Heritage and The National Trust are now using as standard for their buildings. We were very pleased with the results which fitted the resonance and timbre of the house well. The painting and decorating was after an extension was built and therefore, starting from scratch, needed care and attention to detail, applying natural paints that had no solvents or toxic materials. We were very pleased with the work. 27 September 2009
