Quality Plaster Repair Service

At Carrigan Painting we prime all of our repairs. We do this because it shows us the imperfections in our patches. Fresh plaster, and water stains require an oil base primer. Many wrongly assume that you can prime 10 day old fresh plaster with shellac primer. From actual experience we can tell you this is false. Oil based primer is required for all new plaster less than 28 days old. It usually dries with in 30 minutes and then the odor is gone. All of our latex paints are zero V.O.C.

Skim Coating Service

This is very labor intensive, and often involves a considerable amount of dust. Level 5 finishing is when a very thin layer of drywall compound is applied to wall and ceilings to give the surfaces a uniform texture and look.

    Amazing work on plaster repairs and painting in our entry hall. We have an older home with a large curved ceiling, and Carrigan were the only people we trusted to actually repair the plaster. The other companies we received quotes from wanted to cover with squared off drywall. They did gorgeous work - just as good as brand new. Pleasant to work with and finished on time and below budget.

We had water damage to our kitchen ceiling and it needed to be patched and repainted. Carrigan Painting did a beautiful job repairing and repainting the ceiling and kitchen walls. I highly recommend them for their professional work and great service at a very reasonable cost.

This is my first review for Carrigan Painting although they have now completed two separate projects for us. For our first project I had four separate painting companies come out to estimate a repair for a very large 12 ft vaulted ceiling that sustained heavy water damage and black mold. Not only was Carrigan the most inexpensive option but their work was absolutely phenomenal. This is exactly why we hired them back for our second project to repair separate and fresh water damage to another part of the home. Once again the work was timely, efficient and most importantly, it once again looks like a brand new ceiling....
