A good craftsman takes pride in his work and Mike Aragosa definitely takes pride in his work. Our stucco house needed two patches 2' by 3' on either side of our front door so every one would see them when they entered our home. Mike performs with skill or dexterity he textured and feathered the stucco repairs so they blend with the surrounding areas. After completion of the work he cleaned up so everything look very nice. The beauty of his work is that no one will know that we had any work done. He also does plastering and I have ceilings and walls that need his attention. I highly recommend this professional plasterer.Dec 4, 2016Verified
Mike did an absolutely fantastic job from start to finish. We needed some exterior stucco and interior plaster repairs on an old house where matching the original work was important. He communicated with me and came out to do an estimate in a timely manner and fit in the work shortly thereafter. The work is really high quality and the price was very fair. I received both higher and lower estimates and his was in the middle but I believe he was the most honest about the extent of the repairs needed and the most knowledgeable of all the contractors I met with.Sep 30, 2016Verified
Mike went above and beyond for us- when the problem proved more extensive than we'd thought, he helped us find the right people to solve the issue, helped us find the most cost-effective solution and moved around his schedule to finish the job. He also talked my panicking wife off the ledge when things looked their worst. The finished job looks great, and the price was still within our budget. I'll call Michael first for any stucco repair jobs in the future, and would gladly recommend him to anyone.Jun 26, 2016Verified

Drywall Repair and Texturing
Mike did a great job repairing the drywall in my upstairs hallway which had suffered from water damage. He completed the work in a single day and returned that evening to meet with me to review the work. I will definitely recommend him to others.Sep 21, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Generally I try to charge on a "per day" basis. If there are two men on a job for one day, then that is considered "2 man days" then material is figured out and added in. I never charge for estimates and I always want my clients happy so that they will refer me to a friend.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have taken many classes and have certification in the following: Aerial Work Platform Operator Training Lead Awareness Training Asbestos worker Certification Scaffold Competent Person Certification Osha10 Safety Certification OSHA 30 Supervisor Safety Certification California/OSHA Stairs and Ladder Safety Certification
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I started plastering when I was fresh out of high school and the first job I worked on was for the ambassador of Switzerland in a high rise condo on East Lake Shore Drive. It was the largest condo I ever saw, at that point in my life and I loved going to work and learning something new every day.
