Hired him to do an over $5000 exterior painting job. The work itself appears ok, although, because he did not sand our porch railings, the paint there is lumpy when you get close. However, the chief issue was communication. He did not let us know when he and his crew were not going to work (which was often) and even called at times to say they would show up on a particular day then did not show. There were differences in the scope of work between what we remembered and what he remembered. Some of them seemed quite illogical, such as his belief that painting the porch railings did not include the railing between our home and the twin (we ended up paying him extra for this). When we asked about a paint streak left on a window screen, he did not clean it but instead told us to use hot water. After the job was complete, we owed him $900 of the $5200 price. First, he did not know that his worker did not complete the job. After it was actually done, my father suddenly died and we, admittedly, delayed for about a week and a half before paying the balance because of the confusion from that death. Contractor called multiple times daily and, even after we explained the situation, called and threatened legal action and said on the phone that he was going to come power wash the paint off our house.
