Looking for old world stucco master

Posted by zagyzebra (My Page) on

We're trying to decide whether to be owner-builders or give the restoration of our 1931 fire-damaged formerly beautiful home to a contractor. To make the decision, we're shopping around for sub-contractors and have found a handful of people we really like. As yet, though, we still haven't sourced an old-world plasterer we are confident in. How do we go about finding a reliable person?

We are located in Hollywood. With the huge Latino population here, you would we would have found someone by now, but no, we haven't. Does anyone happen to know someone they can refer us to, or point us in a direction to look, short of Home Depot parking lots?

Hollywood Florida, or Hollywood Ca.?

"Home Depot parking lots?" For a "old world stucco master" or "old-world plasterer we are confident in", the "the huge Latino population here" would not be where I would search for such a person. Find a reputable building supply or restoration supply and ask them for recommendations. If your in an older community look for other people having interior work done and look fro trucks or signs and write down numbers and make some calls. It is a starting point and you will obviously need to check references.

Hollywood Hills is "generally" a reference to CA. and because you are "right on top" of this thred, here is a useful link;
You could also call EKGRS Conglomerate in Los Alamitos, whose stucco sub does some very nice work.
