The work began when an inexperienced college student sales rep measured and took detailed notes regarding the scope. Spent 20 minutes reviewing before giving me a bid proposal to accept. The price was acceptable and close to what I'd budgeted for so I signed the agreement without haggling. Signed with the understanding that there was a window of opportunity before we went on a long vacation that would promptly be followed by other work in the house (carpet laying). Didn't have any follow up response until the week before our vacation. The actual contractor who would do the work showed up who reviewed the scope with me and the college student sales rep. Afterward he asked to see the contract (neither of them had a copy!). I retrieved my copy and the contractor pointed out that the scope of work we reviewed was not detailed on the contract. The rep vouched for the accuracy of the scope we reviewed and that it was both our understanding that all of it would be included in the work. They left at that point after he promised to contact me to schedule the work the following Monday (counting down to 5 days before we leave).
The next day I received a voicemail from a manager I didn't know informing me that they would refund my deposit, and that they would not do the work, explaining that their untrained rep had given me a bad price. When I protested that that was not my problem and that I expected them to honor our agreement the manager eventually agreed. Unfortunately the poor response time
Shell Beach Home Exterior Specialists Provider Name Locked
to more delays and the work had to be postponed for 2 months for our trip and the other work already scheduled at our house.
When work began, the same subcontractor reviewed the scope with me again (he had taken no notes before). During this review I agreed to delete a bathroom that was no longer ready (due to the other work under way) and the garage ceiling. In trade I asked them to repair and paint a portion of a wall in another room and he agreed (they ended up not doing that, so their scope was reduced). Next day he showed up with a non-English speaking crew, reviewed the scope in detail with them and left. The crew proceeded to

off (prior to completing prep work (which seemed like the wrong order to me). This was followed by two fellows with caulk and some spackle who filled nail holes and blemishes. Tarps were also laid and painting began. It was a whirlwind. I left on business and when I returned I found the work progressed but unsatisfactory. I pointed out (to the 12 year old boy they brought as interpreter) spills and sloppily cut in paint, unfilled holes and the like — and directed them to inspect and correct similar problems.
At 6:30 I asked them what time they would be returning the next day to finish and they informed me they would finish that night! After pointing out numerous incomplete items on the scope of work they agreed that it was more reasonable to leave my household in peace that night. As they left they took up tarps to
Shell Beach Home Exterior Specialists Provider Name Locked
that they had spilled paint directly on my brand new carpet and tracked it all over! (One section was uncleanable and ruined, costing $150 to patch).
The next day much the same routine occurred, but I was away on business. They were gone when I returned. I inspected their work, and discovered even more missing scope, numerous runs, improperly prepped nail holes (gobs of caulk still clinging to most of them) even more holes that were not filled at all, more paint on adjacent surfaces, etc. I was appalled!
I contacted the contractor and informed him the work was unacceptable, he came by to see for himself and agreed that it didn't meet his standards and that he would send his more skilled corrections crew to fix the next day.
These fellows were English speakers but only marginally better painters. Like the first crew they had to borrow tools from me, didn't come with any proper painter's masking tape (they used the ordinary type which doesn't work properly). They corrected some of the original crew's mistakes and damage but created a host of new ones of their own. I showed the work to the contractor and declined to have them do any more work, preferring to settle up the bill (at which point he didn't offer any concessions).
Now I face correcting the inferior terrible paint job myself (I have no budget left to hire someone else to fix it). As I progress I continue to find more serious avoidable flaws and damage, plus two windows and a door whose trim they didn't even paint (probably a good thing).
I would not recommend this company (or the subcontractor, "The Third Arm Construction") to anyone.

I called
Shell Beach Home Exterior Specialists Provider Name Locked
from Angies List. He was close to my residence and he provided a phone number. Others I tried to contact only had emails. I called him on September 5. He came out at 1:00 and he was here on time. He explained what he would need and what would be done. He explained that the trim would be sanded before repainting. The painting of the house would take 2 coats. I found some old paint that had the number assigned to it by

paint company. He ordered the paint and picked it along with the trim paint up. The painters and

showed up on September 10 at approximately 10:00 a.m. They covered all the windows and put drop cloths down on the concrete patio to keep any overspray or paint dropping off. Two (2) painters (

and his crew started when he said he would and were all very professional, friendly and very competent, Wallpaper was removed and old cracks were fixed. We also redid the kitchen and updated the wiring and some plumbing and were left with new cracks and holes. W hen all was done it was flawless. Including all those windows! Beautiful work and a great, trustworthy company. We were so pleased we had them do our exterior the following year. Another fantastic job and we still keep getting compliments on it.

This has to be the best contractor I have ever worked with. Professional. Thorough. Neat. Available. Impeccable results.
I contacted
Shell Beach Home Exterior Specialists Provider Name Locked
in mid-June and had a couple of visits with
Shell Beach Home Exterior Specialists Provider Name Locked
(VP of Sales).
Shell Beach Home Exterior Specialists Provider Name Locked
took lots of pictures. He followed up with an estimate a few days later, and came out for a second visit to wrap things up. One third of the total payment was taken.
Shell Beach Home Exterior Specialists Provider Name Locked
supplied me with his cell number, and when I had questions about a starting date he immediately connected me with
Shell Beach Home Exterior Specialists Provider Name Locked
(president and owner).
Shell Beach Home Exterior Specialists Provider Name Locked
was always available by cell phone. I texted him several times and he always got back to me.
Shell Beach Home Exterior Specialists Provider Name Locked
stopped by several times and even rang the doorbell just to talk and ask me how I thought things were going. The job was done in three phases; power washing, repair and prep work, and staining. Just as I was told, workers would return every day to complete each phase before moving on to their next job.
The prep work was excellent. Workers sanded, sealed minor cracks, replaced damaged clapboard and shingles, and repaired a window with heavy water damage. They replaced a wooden panel below a deck door with a composite material to prevent further damage. They removed an ant nest and even called a pest control company on my behalf.
Second payment was done at the end of the repair work, and the last payment was taken at job completion. The workers that stained the house were particular to the end. They covered bushes, decks, and the driveway. There wasn't a drop or spill anywhere to be found.
Shell Beach Home Exterior Specialists Provider Name Locked
(production manager) asked me to approve colors after small samples were applied. As it turned out the trim color was a bit too light, so they immediately changed it for a darker color after getting my approval.
All the workers were approachable and easy to talk to. They showed up on time every day, and completely cleaned up each evening. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend
Shell Beach Home Exterior Specialists Provider Name Locked
to anyone, and I would definitely use them again myself.

Provider was professional in all dealings. Work personnel were courteous, professional and pleasant to be around. Worked efficiently, cleaned up all areas and replaced any items that were moved back in original positions. Punctual in showing up for the work. As both homeowners could not be present at work's completion, the contractor actually came back for a second work review to ensure we were both satisfied with the work. Company provided customer service that can only be considered above and beyond what was called for in the contract.
