Davis Gene
Glen arrived on the day scheduled to pressure wash the house. They completed this portion of the work in a timely and competent manner. 4 days later, Glen and his worker Jamie arrived to begin the scraping of the house. After about 2 hours, I had to leave the jobsite for a few hours on an errand. When I returned they were gone. Their tools and ladders were still here, so I assumed they would be back the next day as planned. WRONG! They returned later that same day to pick up the equipment, and for Glen to give the news that he would NOT BE BACK! He made a lame excuse that he did not have the man power, and that the worker Jamie, was not interested in working on the job. In other words, he left me high and dry. I had gotten other bids for this job, but because of the great reviews on Angie's List, I decided to use Glen Davis. I bent over backwards to accommodate his schedule, and show perhaps even too much flexibility with regards to scheduling and timing. This turned out to be a huge mistake. This is an unreliable, unprofessional contractor who is not true to his word. I would urge all people in search of a painter to LOOK ELSEWHERE.
Tips & Advices
For a long-lasting paint job, a clean wall is crucial. Ask how they plan to clean your walls, if at all, before getting started. A high-quality company will thoroughly prepare a wall so that the paint will lay smoothly and last a long time.
Yes. A well-established company will have more experience and likely more references for you to reach out to than a new company that's just getting off the ground. Be sure to ask for references so you can speak to former customers about their experience working with the painter. When speaking to these people, ask about:
  • Whether they had issues with the crew
  • If the painters were messy or neat
  • How the paint has held up since the project was completed
The quality of the paint will affect how good the walls look when the project is completed. If your contractor says they plan on using a paint you don't like, feel free to request an alternative.
If the contractor makes a point to train new hires on safety techniques as well as quality standards on the job, you're probably in good hands.
Unfortunately, there are plenty of cases where a painter has stolen items from a home or caused damage to the house or injury to the homeowner. Subcontractors may not be as skilled as employees, and the contractor you're hiring may not have much experience working with them, making them more of a risk. Additionally, ask if the painters are employees or subcontractors, and what the screening or hiring process is like.
