Celebrating over 50 Years of Plaster, Drywall & Textures!

It’s usually the family business which offers the most personal and friendly service. Jake and Son is one of those companies. Founded in the 1940s by Jake Sr., the business was taken over by his son in 1973. Jake & Son has continued to honor family tradition, passing down the knowledge and skills to each of their sons. For over 50 years, the family have made homes and fine establishments all across South Louisiana beautiful again; installing, repairing and refinishing the first thing people notice in your home: your walls and ceilings. We are one of the few remaining plasterers left in the New Orleans area (not to mention one of the best). Born and raised in New Orleans, Jake brings not only a fantastic physical skill set but also an unparalleled knowledge of New Orleans homes and history.
