Gaylord House Painting Articles
The team painting our house were very nice and pleasant to work with but, as painters, they were totally incompetent. The first surprise came when they raised the carpentry quote by FOUR TIMES the original quote that we had based our purchasing decision upon. When I got mad, they then said that they didn't have to replace ALL of the boards. This destroyed any confidence I had in their professionalism or ability to complete the job. We finally negotiated that they would put two coats on the front side of the house. For the additional $1,500 I paid for the carpentry work, not all the boards that needed to be replaced were removed.
The quality of the work completed was terrible. Their work philosophy was show up and throw up. They did almost no prep work and when I asked about calking and sanding, they said that they did not do that and no one had ever requested that before. I was also told that my standards were too high and my house was made of cheap material and that was why I could not get the results I expected. I also expected them to clean up each night before they left. We still have paint shavings across my front stoop, the roof, and elsewhere all over the job sight. In addition to the poor quality work, they broke landscaping lights and irrigation sprinklers. I brought this to their attention several times and the response was, "sorry." They felt they needed to trim several bushes before they could paint and left all the cuttings in the flower bed.
The team showed little respect for my house. I have overspray and drips all over my new $15,000 roof. It is also on my skylights and my plants. I have paint scrapings on every window sill. They did not have the proper tools or any masking tape, so there is over painting on the bricks. Something they used spilled on my copper roof and ruined the patina. My wrought iron railing was painted without the appropriate prep work and has already started to rust. They also painted the brass finials black. And there are many places on the house that were never painted at all.
Without the proper prep work, (sanding and caulking) the finished product looks poor. The best way to describe it is they "put lipstick on a pig." We did not choose

was prepared within the week.

They were very polite and answered my question when I had them.

The three person crew did a great job, leaving everything clean & tidy after the project was complete.
