"Wayne is the best. His workmanship is excellent. We decided to renovate ourselves and after stripping the bathroom we had to plaster the whole room. Wayne changed a very sad situation into an amazing finish. His workmanship is the best I have seen. I will recommend him to anyone wanting work done."

Elizabeth Adams
