I am truly grateful for the professional, high quality and exacting workmanship that Scott demonstrated in restoring our art deco ceiling. It took 7 months to find McMillan Heritage Plastering but the search was well worth it to see our beautiful old Queenslander restored with such love and care at a surprisingly affordable rate! From start to finish, work was conducted with exacting expertise and skill.

– Dr Simone Baker, Brisbane

We engaged Scott for a residential job to undertake repairs to decorative ceilings in our old 1940 Queenslander. A couple of the ceilings were sagging and cracking in several areas. We were concerned that decorative elements might be damaged in the process of reinforcing the ceilings. Scott undertook the work with the utmost care and preserved the ceilings with no issues, so they can hopefully last another 80 years! We were impressed with Scott’s knowledge and professionalism and would highly recommend him to others.

“Scott McMillan’s work was always to an extremely high standard, befitting a craftsman of his skill, training and integrity. Indeed his commitment to maintaining traditional methods and applying those to restoration work is exemplary. It is heartening to know that craftsmen such as Mr McMillan – although very rare – still exist. We recommend him most highly.”

“Scott’s workmanship is excellent, his considerable training and experience in traditional plastering is demonstrated to be of a high standard. I am aware of several heritage projects in Queensland where Scott’s high level skills are exemplified. I often recommend Scott to my clients for specialist plastering work. Scott is aware of the Burra Charter processes and protocols.”

– Jacqueline Pearce, Heritage Architect

“Scott McMillan was a pleasure to deal with. He came out to quote on our job and spent a good deal of time assessing what was required and discussing this with us. He was flexible with timeframes and was very prompt to organise appointments based around our busy schedules.

Scott’s craftsmanship was first rate in repairing our older fibrous plaster hallway ceiling with intricate decorative cornices.

I wouldn’t hesitate hiring Scott again for further works or in recommending him to other potential clients.”

– Michael Vidot, Hendra

“Scott has done a sensational job in restoring our intricately decorated plaster ceiling. We were lucky to have found someone so attuned to his craft and with a great attention to detail. Scott is professional, a timely communicator and gave us some great advice. We would absolutely recommend Scott’s services and will use him again for future renovation projects.”
