I started in the construction business over 20 years ago, and I have been plastering for 18 of those years. I began as a laborer and worked through my apprenticeship to become a journeyman plasterer.
In 1999, I moved to Kerrville to be closer to my parents. When looking for employment I couldn’t find anyone I wanted to work for who met the standards in which I was trained. I started Blackburn Plastering based on my ideals of offering a quality job and best possible service from beginning to end. I’ve found that as long as I adhere to these basic principles, my relationships with my customers are very rewarding.
I believe in being proactive in learning about and training in new products and techniques. I consistently attend and complete continuing education in my field. Because of my experience I’m fortunate to have a greater understanding of the complete building process and that knowledge enables me to work with other trades to deliver a superior job. I care about more than just the stucco.
Over time I’ve grown Blackburn Plastering from a two-man business to a multi-crew operation encompassing stucco, plastering, artistic brick and stone carving. Along the way it’s been a constant challenge to grow and run the business, and to adapt to ever-changing techniques. We value our consistent longevity, performance and long-standing relationships with our customers – every job, every time.
My wife Donna and I are residents of Kerrville, and we have three terrific children aged 22, 17 and
7. We’re blessed to call the Hill Country our home.
