Horisk Plastering Systems was established in 2012 by Brian Horisk, who moved to Christchurch from his home country of Ireland. Brian came from a long line of plasters in his family and grew up with a strong work ethic.
“I remember as a five year old, my father had me in an old pair of wellies and a trowel in my hand earning my first pay check, albeit a small one,” Brian recalls.
He went on to start a serious career of internal and external plastering. With a large crew in Ireland, he completed a four year apprenticeship and achieved the City and Guilds Certificate in Internal and External Plastering.
Brian notes that Ireland has a tradition of solid sand cement finishes, which goes back many centuries. He has mastered the trade and old techniques, through to the faster and new ways of modified plastering, incorporating different techniques to create smooth or textured finishes to a high standard.
“It takes years of practice and a keen eye for detail,” he says.
Before moving to New Zealand, Brian worked as a plasterer not only in Ireland but also England.
Horisk Plastering Systems now has a strong team of hand-picked, qualified plasterers who are dedicated to achieving high standards on commercial, residential and industrial sites.
