Just about done, just a couple little glitches that will be resolved soon.

Showed up exactly when he said he would and went over everything that I needed to have done. He gave me a quote of how much everything would cost and how the work would be completed. After getting two other quotes I decided to use his company as he seemed to be the most knowledgeable and up front of the three. After having the work done I would definitely hire

's responsiveness to our project was outstanding and as a result the quality of his work was very good. Our next door neighbors appreciated his work and experienced the same level of service.

this is the 2nd time I have used them. They are professional and do everything as quoted and no extra costs or surprises. All painting was completed in just a little over a day with no issues; They were on time and exceeded all expectations. .

was very thorough when he came out to give us the estimate. The men did an excellent job and did exactly what they were supposed to do. They power washed the exterior to prepare for paint, replaced rotten wood, caulked and did not rush through the details just to get the job done. The men were polite, careful, and cleaned up each day. We had two different colors of paint, one for the trim and another for the siding. The trim took a lot of time as our house is two stories. We appreciated the fact that they were careful and did an excellent job although it was rather labor intensive. Our neighbors are pleased with the results and thought the crew did a great job!

It went great! I asked
Spencer Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
to come by early August to give me an estimate. He had worked on a neighbor's home and I liked the results. I was comfortable with the estimate and scheduled for mid-September. NOTE:

would not take a dime until the job was completed. On September 10th,
Spencer Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
called to confirm dates and sent his crew on Friday, September 12th, to power wash my home and drop of some ladders. Then, the following Monday afternoon they started painting. A little rain started falling around 4pm, so the crew took a break. By 6pm, they were back on the ladders and worked until dark. On Tuesday, they showed up at 9am and worked until dark. By Wednesday morning, they replaced my freshly painted gutters, did some touch-up and were done by 2pm.

, the lead painter, was extremely professional and his crew was top notch.

set-up an appointment with me to check on the work and, since we were both satisfied, I paid him in full.

After our payment to Angie's, we knew that the actual paint would cost extra but were surprised to learn that "supplies" were extra, and there would be also be extra charges for painting the soffits and porch ceilings the same as the trim (white). Additionally, minor repairs to trim would be extra. Eager to get the job done, we agreed to the charges We also agreed to allow the painters access to our bathroom. We were told the job would take 2 days. It took over 2 weeks, during summer heat so we were living with sealed windows with paper over them. Two workers, one of them the prep guy -- polite and diligent, the other a non-English-speaking man who spent more time on his phone than working -- would show up and disappear randomly.
Unfortunately, our faith was misplaced.
The owner said he did not receive my phone calls, and suggested I had called the wrong number, despite the fact that my cell phone could prove otherwise.
When jewelry was discovered missing from our master bedroom, he begged us not to report it and assured us he had fired the employee most likely responsible. When he came for a walk-through, he apologized for paint and "fix it" errors and assigned his elderly father to fix them, which only made things worse. We did not want anyone from this company to return, and will pay someone else to do the repairs.
We deducted the costs of our losses from our final invoice and reported the theft to the police.
While the owner urged us not to report it or review him badly, we feel it is our duty to the community.
Caveat emptor.

The initial contact with
Spencer Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was satisfactory. We discussed the details of finishing the interior walls of my garage. The details of the job were confirmed in writing. Our communications were satisfactory.
The problem began when the first painter showed up. He didn't feel that it was necessary to skim coat the walls so he just didn't do it.
I had selected a paint color for the walls. I gave the sample to the painter. Instead of going to buy the paint himself, he suggested that I go buy the paint. I ended up having to go to three different paint stores to find the right brand and quality. None of them were what we had initially agreed upon. I felt that this was a waste of my time and was extremely inconsiderate. On the second day, the painter ran out of paint. He never offered to go get more paint himself. Once again, I was the one who had to go back to the paint store to get more paint so that the second coat could be painted.
Since it appeared to me that both painters who were sent to do the work had a poor attitude about actually doing the work, I felt uncomfortable about the job from start to finish. Both painters seemed to me to have a careless attitude.
When the work was completed I discovered that both painters had left a mess behind including their own ladder and other things. The owner of the company never visited the garage to see whether the work was done well or not. Basically there was no supervision of either painter.
In the end, I did express my dissatisfaction with the work. The owner agreed to a substantial reduction in the contract price.
I would never hire this company again to do any work in my home. The quality of the completed work was not the quality that I expected. The painters who did the work were very inconsiderate.

This review is long overdue.
Spencer Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
wasn't the cheapest but the price was still fair. The estimator made reasonable recommendations during the walkthrough estimate and presented his credentials and a binder full of referral letters. He was knowledgeable about the issues on paint adherence on various surfaces, treatment of stains, and repair of drywall ceilings, which were also needed for the job. The crew was punctual and thorough. The patches were seamless and the texture blended well with the rest of the ceiling. The work quality was excellent and the crew cleaned up after themselves. I made it a point to have the company representative compliment the crew for me for a great job. As much as I like doing work myself (and saving money), repair work, high ceilings and high walls are best left to professionals and
Spencer Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
should be at least one of the companies to consider.
