Pender House Painting Articles
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
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
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
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.
It was a very good experience.
2 1/2 days, and it was. I would definitely use them again. They also do interior painting and wallpaper removal.
I contacted out for a second visit to wrap things up. One third of the total payment was taken.
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.
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
