For decades Frey’s Plastering, formerly James Frey Plastering and Taping, has worked throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. James Frey retired in 2001. Since then James’ son Barry Frey (a third generation plaster contractor) has lead Frey Plastering.

Our full service lath & plaster contracting company works to exceed the expectations of the general contractors we work with. When you work with us, you’ll find we possess:

Pre-Construction Budgeting Expertise: We will work with you in the design assist stage to plan the project and keep the plaster work within budget.

Timeliness: For commercial projects there are many sub-contractors that need to work together for the project to be completed on schedule. We start and complete projects on time.

Craftsmanship: Decades of experience gives us an edge over many newer plastering companies. Members of our team are true craftsman. They have experience and skills not widely available, for example, run mold plaster and specialized textural finishs for buildings interiors and exteriors.

Proactive: Our extensive experience enables us to identify problems in advance and communicate the cost impacts to minimize surprises. Furthermore, before we start we always check that other necessary work is done, for example electrical wiring.

Excellent Communication and Follow Through: We are easy to reach in the office or in the field and provide project updates regularly to keep work moving forward in a timely way.
