Comments: Gerald Portlock Drywall is great. His team did a beautiful job in repairing and replacing the drywall damaged from water from the above unit. I had about 30 recessed lighting installed in my unit. They did a great job in making the cut-outs for the round light fixtures. In addition, they had painted my entire place with 2 coats of Kelly-Moore Swiss Coffee paint. It was painted with care. They are trully professionals. Gerald Portlock is very friendly and reliable. He would continuously communicate with me. I highly recommend him for drywall and painting. His pricing is also great. He can give you the biggest bang for the buck.

Comments: We have had several contractors in our house over the last 18 months and I can say without a doubt Gerald and his crew were the best.

Comments: Gerald was fantastic! He responded to my request in a matter of seconds after I submitted it. He came to the house and looked at the job and told me what needed to be done. The next day Gerald and his son arrived to do the work. They worked hard and completed the job in two days. I can't say enough about his professional behavior and quality of work he and his son performed. The price was right and I would definitely spread the word about Portlock Drywall and how good they are! If you need to have drywall work or plaster work done these are the guys for you.

Comments: We are very happy with Mr. Portlocks work. We asked for some special texturing of which he was very patient. He did an excellent job.

Review Date: 10/13/2004 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: I would definently recommend this company he was wonderful.

Review Date: 09/14/2004 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: Very nice man, very courteous. Very punctual and quick. On the down side: quality was not excellent - some significant cracking of the patches. And very little attention to cleaning up the job or minimizing dust going everywhere. Regarding price: I had 3 quotes from drywall contractors, and all, including Portlock, came in within 4% - so he was no bargain, just exactly what everyone else quoted - i.e. "fair"

Review Date: 09/08/2004 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: Gerald was very honest, fair and easy to work with. His folks did very good work, at a good price! I will definitively use him again. Just be prepared to be flexible with schedule - he appears to have limited resources, especially when working on other jobs.

Review Date: 07/28/2004 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: Mr. Portlock and his son resurfaced our damaged bathroom walls and ceiling. The price fit our budget, they showed up on time, did a good job, and cleaned up well. They also gave us good advice about painting. I'd hire them again.

Review Date: 07/22/2004 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: Gerald was great! I ended up having him come in on July 7th to do an estimate for drywalling a doorway, and he came in and completed the job on July 8th! I am really happy with his work!

Comments: I've arranged for the work to be done next week, but the initial contact has been great!!

Review Date: 06/25/2004 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: My job was a HUGE challenge, requiring very thick covering over very large expanses of wall, including arched transition from wall to ceiling and very difficult detailed alcove corners, and all of this was over a thick texture with nearly half-inch depths. Unbelievable. But Gerald came out, took a look (shook his head a little bit...just joking), and summarized what he planned to do, including as much detail as I cared to ask about. Then he quoted me a price within 24 hours after at, and we agreed on a schedule. He delivered on every committment he made. The outcome was better than I had hoped for. I was completely satisfied with every aspect of Gerald's performance and product.

Review Date: 04/06/2004 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: I truly feel that I found not only a highly qualified and professional contractor in Portlock Drywall, but a partner to count on for any future needs. Our son had managed to create a large hole in our front entry way. Because this is the first thing you see upon entering our house we were very concerned about the integrity and the appearance of the wall. Gerald Portlock came to our house on time, quoted the job, and reassured us that if his repair did not meet our expectations we would not be charged for his services. He came back on the appointed day, on time, and did a fabulous job. His repair blended in so well, I have been challenging guests to our home to try and find

Review Date: 02/06/2004 | Author: a Neighbor

Review Date: 01/23/2004 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: Great experince with this company - great work, professionalism, and nice people as well. Highly recommended.

Review Date: 10/09/2003 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: Gerald called me within 5 minutes of my posting and was at my house within the hour. He repaired my wall the next day. I did ask for a paint-ready finish and my painter needed to do minor spakelling/sanding in order to paint. But for the price and the timeliness, Gerald was great.

Review Date: 09/23/2003 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: Gerald and his crew were great. He scheduled my job right away, showed up when he said he would, finished within one day as promised, and was a pleasure to deal with all around. He was not only friendly and kind, but very upfront and honest and did a great job on a small budget. We will definitely hire him again.

Review Date: 09/18/2003 | Author: a Neighbor

Review Date: 09/12/2003 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: Mr. Portlock did an excellent job on very short notice. He was very professional, paid great attention to detail and was conccerned about the quality of his work. Based on other bids I received and the quality of work, his work was a great value.

Review Date: 06/20/2003 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: The best compliments you can make of a contractor are that not only would you hire him/her again, you'd also refer him/her to a friend. Well, my wife & I would definitely, without hesitation, both hire Portlock again & refer him to as many firends as we can. He was prompt (even came out on a Sunday to chek out site & give us a quote), courteous, professional, attentive, and flexible (allowed us a discount when we chose to prime/paint ourselves after the job). Very nice wife & I are very pleased with our choice of Portlock Drywall.

Review Date: 06/01/2003 | Author: a Neighbor

Review Date: 05/29/2003 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: We were able to have all the work done very professionally by communicating over the phone. The rental unit was ready for occupancy within days. Gerald Portlock's accomodating personality and ability to make good recommendations is a huge plus. Any apartment house owner would be lucky to have his services.

Review Date: 03/10/2003 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: Gerald is a craftsman in an age of shoddy workmanship and rush work. He is a great plaster contractor and also a wonderful person. His results re first rate and his quality is excellent.

Review Date: 03/05/2003 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: Gerald and his team are highly professional, respectful and do what they say they will do. I don't think there is any way to make this a "clean" job - it's dirty work no matter what you do! They tried hard to keep the dust down and clean up the best they could. I was happy with their work and would hire them again. They were the most dependable drywall folks I've ever worked with and to me that is the most important. Also, Gerald was quick to respond to the call for help, which we also appreciated, as we were in a bit of a hurry to get the job done.
