My name is Juan Galindo. I have been doing plaster and stucco work for over
30 years and have had my own successful contracting business in the Northwestern
part of the United States for over 25 of those. When I started, I was fortunate
to be able to apprentice under some of the real old-time plasterers who
themselves had apprenticed at a young age, thus passing down proven plaster
knowledge and techniques. Most of my work has been with residential homeowners,
although I have also completed many large commercial projects. I have
specialized in this area because I love to work with homeowners and help them
see their dreams become a reality. There is nothing like a happy homeowner!
While working with plaster and stucco in one of the rainiest parts of the
country can be problematic, I have been able to build a successful business by
sticking to the traditional practices learned from the old plasterers, using
common sense, and working with my clients. You may ask, “Have I ever been called
back to a job?” The answer is absolutely. Anyone in the contracting business
will admit that “stuff happens”. People do make mistakes, but I have always been
willing to work with the client and fix the problem with a smile on my face even
if it meant loosing a few bucks. This policy has served me well and increased my
Why create this website? As a plastering contractor, I have often felt that many
people had questions about plaster or stucco that just were not being answered.
I was always being asked questions from clients who knew little and really had
no idea of the world of possibilities available to them through plaster or
stucco. Unfortunately, I?ve also had clients who had work done for them by
plastering contractors that was just not done properly and that caused problems
for them down the road, disillusioning them. There was clearly a need for
accurate, constructive, understandable, and accessible information.
Since I work hard everyday at my plastering business (which does not leave a lot
of time for working online), my wife and I decided to join forces and start this
website to help bring on-the-job experience to you in the comfort of your own
home, wherever that may be. I hope that through this site, I will be able to
provide information, answer questions, and pass down what my mentors passed down
to me to both homeowners and contractors.
I have always loved working with plaster and stucco and it has served me well,
providing for myself and my family. I promote and work with it because I love
what it can do and what I can create with it.
May your mud always stick to the wall!
