I picked Absolute Lath & Stucco strictly because their bid came in at a lot lower than another contractor. I didn't know anything about them before. I had never heard of them. Johnny is easy to deal with. There were some issues originally during the long course of the project (which I will detail below), but eventually those issues were addressed to my satisfaction and the overall stucco job is of good quality at a good price. Despite some hiccups along the way to completion, I'm giving them a five-star review now. Items of concern: 1. They provided only ONE line of defense against water intrusion by using that black sticky flashing. That flashing stuff is not 100% reliable either due to faulty application or because of failure due to weathering over several years. I requested Johnny to apply high quality caulking in addition to using the sticky flashing and his crew finally did it after some prodding from me. 2.Porch lights were removed by his crew and never put back in. This created a huge hazard for my tenants and huge liability for me. I bugged Johnny and his crew repeatedly and they would make repeated promises to reattach the lights but never did it. I finally reattached the lights myself. 3.His crew permanently damaged my 13-yr old fiberglass shingle roof by dripping stucco cement all over the roof without sufficient drip protection. It was everywhere on the roof and could not be cleaned off without damaging the roof. Although Johnny blamed it on a bad foreman that he eventually fired, ultimately it really was Johnny's own responsibility for failure to sufficiently monitor the jobsite. Let's just say that in the end Johnny took care of the damage for me to my satisfaction and I give him kudos for it. 4. Cement was splatted over my parking railings. Again, Johnny took care of this by repainting it. 5. The whole stucco process took over three months to complete from signing of the contract to final payment. It was unbearably long. 6. Johnny's crews are quite irregular. Different crews are sent to do different phases and oftentimes one crew did something (or some damage) but the other crew did not know the damage was caused by the first crew and so the damage didn't get addressed until I noticed it and began to pester Johnny about it. As an example, his first crew pulled the main electrical conduit from the wall to create space so they can apply the tar paper and wire mesh, but this first crew did not restore the conduit to the original position. Then the second crew would come in days later to apply the first cement coat, but this crew did not know that the first crew pulled the main conduit away from the wall and so did not bother to push it back in. Now the second crew came in and applied the base cement coat and everything became set in concrete. A permanent unwanted and unsightly gap now exists between the conduit and the wall. This slight unsightliness is not catastrophic, but merely annoying. This is really sy

Very satisfied with the the overall quality, experience and value of the job despite a minor disconnect in communication one time. They were quick to come out and quote the job and were very flexible. They were willing to stop by when we weren't and we able to meat my wife and I when we were available. The project was completed in a timely manner even during the holiday season.
Response by Absolute Lath & Stucco: Thank you Nelson! It was a pleasure assisting you and your wife on your project! Absolute Team

We've had a good run of success with companies to fix a pesky leak in our home. Last year, we hired Absolute Lath & Stucco to repair the faulty flashing around a large window. After more rain the area leaked again and, on the advice of a gentleman of another company, who confirmed the flashing repair was successful and identified the actual source. Based on their proven success, we hired Absolute again to do the needed repair and to skim-coat the entire wall. Absolute's, Ray R, head managed the on site job easily and Johnny worked closely with us to ensure satisfaction, which included accommodating a delay caused after the manufacturer changed the color formulation since the original covering was applied. Once the coloring material was mixed at the factory, the next day Ray and crew completed the job. It looks beautiful. I highly recommend Absolute Lath & Stucco for anyone who are in need of a lath and stucco work.
Response by Absolute Lath & Stucco: Daphne, Thank you for your review and kind words. In this type of trade it is not often to get return customers however, due to the nature of your repair the circumstances were a bit different. It was a pleasure working with you on the repair this time as well as last year. I truly appreciate the feed back on Ray and Johnny and they are very valued assets to our team. Thank you again and if you need anything please don't hesitate to contact us although we hope you do not have any more water intrusion issues with your home. Thank you again Daphne from all of us at Absolute Lath & Stucco!
