Overall a great job. He does a lot of little extras around the house as part of the service. He is a bit blustery about his business, and probably rightfully so. Very responsive to questions. He will also give advice on keeping the house looking nice, and not just to drum up more business.

You better set your clock because these guys get there not just on time, but they come early!
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
power washed the entire house, and did a great job getting all dirt and grime off the house and deck. He was friendly and explained everything. He was earlier than expected, and that is good! Then
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
,
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
came to do the painting. Again, they were very early and worked methodically and for a long while. They were precise and explained everything they did each day. It rained the next day they were expected to come, but they called.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and/or
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
called as well to reschedule. They arrived on the assigned day even earlier than the previous time. All work was completed. They left the remaining paint and stain, and

explained the type of paint and stain if we needed to buy/match it in the future.

The actual job around October of 2012 went well. Although it was not always easy dealing with the owner. He always seemed to have a chip on his shoulder about everything.
I would NEVER use this company again. Very unprofessional experience. The owner does not stand by his work.

On June 18, 2014 I purchased a Big Deal of two exterior painters for one day. Prior to purchasing the deal I read the reviews on Angie’s List, all of which were positive at that time.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
apparently is co-owned by
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
Brown. I initially spoke with Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
to discuss details of the job and schedule an appointment. I provided to Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
the linear footage of the house and gables and explained that I wanted all the gutters,
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and soffits painted. I also provided to him the square footage of the alcoves and garage sides and door that I wanted painted and informed him that I wanted all surfaces to be painted with two coats of paint. I explained that the house would be power washed and any damaged areas fixed prior to the scheduled date for painting. Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
indicated that the job was doable by two men within the eight hour time frame, as have subsequent contractors with whom I have spoken. It was agreed that
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
would arrive at 7:00 a.m. on Monday,
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
7, 2014. They did not come, nor did they answer my telephone calls. On
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
8, 2014 I sent a message through Angie’s List. Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
responded that same day, stated that he “just got back to work” and that he would call me on
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
9, 2014 to reschedule. He did call me on the ninth and explained that he was not in town on the seventh and that he apparently double booked jobs. He offered to schedule a Saturday appointment as I had already missed one day of work. We agreed on Saturday,
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
26, 2014 at 7:00 a.m. On that day at 8:00 a.m. I called Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
to ask him where he was as he was supposed to be at my home at 7:00 a.m. Initially he argued with me that he was supposed to be at someone else’s home in
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
but then was informed by someone in the background that he was supposed to be at my house. He said he and two other men would be coming but that they were still in Mesquite and had yet to pick up the third man. They arrived more than three hours later to complete a full day’s worth of painting. Almost immediately Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
launched into a harangue about his recent poor reviews on Angie's List, disparaging each homeowner who had rated him negatively. However, in each of the scenarios he presented, the homeowner rated him poorly because he did not complete the job when promised and/or to customary standards. Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
then announced that my house was bigger than he had anticipated. I reminded him that I had discussed the job with him in infinite detail prior to scheduling it. He said that he would have to charge extra and that he would “consult with his colleagues” as to the price. He came back with an offer of an additional $400.00 to complete the job. When I asked whether he was bonded for task completion he said he was not. Given his poor track record to date, and given that by then it was nearly noon and
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
had not even begun the job, I did not agree to pay him any additional money in advance. Initially all three men began to work. However, within a short period of time Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
disappeared and did not return for well over an hour. As I supplied all necessary materials, I do not know why he needed to leave the job site for such an extended period of time. Shortly after Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
left the youngest of the three men stopped working unless he was visible to Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
. Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
worked diligently but was not suited for the tasks of caulking and hand painting. He left splotches of caulk on the walkways and front entryway and smeared it on the roof in several areas. When painting he left many streaks, frequently missed large spots, and painted onto the frames of windows. Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
also dripped paint onto the front walkways and dumped it in the front yard after washing his brushes. Their younger companion used a compressor to spray on paint. He missed the tops of most of the gutters, as well as some areas of the gutters entirely, and left wave patterns on the garage sides and door. I allowed the use of our bathrooms throughout the day as Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
indicated that they would use the yard behind my shed if not allowed to do so. This caused no real concern for me until I realized that one of the men did not return to painting for quite some time. I found him in my study and the papers on my desk had obviously been disturbed. He explained that he was in my study, which is directly across from the bathroom and which had the door closed when he entered the home, because he had gotten lost, despite the fact that the back door and his colleagues were clearly visible from the hallway adjacent to the bathroom. I assured him that I would lock all interior doors to assist him to find his way back outside in the future. He never asked to use the restroom again. All three men repeatedly tracked paint into the house when they used the restroom. Around 4:00 PM I was informed that the youngest of the three men had announced that he had completed his work and had left. As I began to walk the perimeter of the house I found multiple areas that had not been painted at all and, as noted earlier, the ones that had been sprayed were done so unevenly. Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
walked the perimeter with me, apologized profusely, and assured me that he and Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
would finish the job. Shortly afterward I went outside to find Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
lying on his back moaning. He said he was diabetic and wished that he had an orange. I gave him three clementines. Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was wrapping his ankle as it was swollen. As they returned to work Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
’s hands shook while he attempted to paint and Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
could not easily maintain his balance as he was favoring his ankle. The sun was also beginning to set, making it difficult to see which areas had and had not been painted. Since they had not begun painting until noon and had four more hours' worth of painting to do, I repeatedly offered to reschedule for another day. They repeatedly insisted that they would complete the job that day. An hour later, with no significant progress made, they finally admitted that they were not up to the task. They asked to reschedule for Saturday, August 9, 2014. I informed them that I would be available until noon but that I had a prior commitment and would not be home after that time. Both Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
assured me that this would not be a problem, that most homeowners are not home when they paint, and that they would
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
the paint and supplies behind my front bushes so that they had access to all the materials they would need. Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
also assured me that they would be on time as he had a new scheduling system to ensure that no errors were made. His new scheduling system consisted of a clipboard with numerous papers clipped to it. Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
asked that I call them the day before "just to make sure" that I was on the schedule. I did so and received a voice mail message from Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
later in the evening stating that he was glad I called because he had been “looking for me.” He represented that he had misplaced my telephone numbers but had sent an email to my “personal email” and that I had not responded. I never provided a personal email address to Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
, nor did I receive a message from him via Angie’s List. Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
stated in his message that I needed to call him “to schedule a day when we can come out and finish the paint job.” I called him back, left a voice mail message, and received no response. The following afternoon, just as I was leaving the house, Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
called to say that he remembered that I was married to an attorney and that he did not want to make my husband angry so he and his crew would be coming to my home to finish the paint job. I informed him that I was just walking out the door and would not be home when they arrived. I reminded him that he had been informed of this prior to scheduling the appointment. He agreed that this was the case and said that he would call me the following week to schedule a day for him to walk the property with me to ensure that it was to my expectations. Within five minutes of the call being completed Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
called me and insisted that I immediately provide to him a date for the final inspection. I informed him that I did not have my professional schedule in front of me and was preparing to leave the premises. He again insisted that I schedule the final inspection immediately. I reminded Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
that he and Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
had been informed, prior to scheduling, that I would not be home in the afternoon. They chose not to arrive in the morning and Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
admitted that they hadn’t originally intended to complete the job that day at all. Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
became more insistent and stated that it would be inconvenient for them to return to
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
just to do a final inspection with me. I again explained to him that I did not have my professional schedule available to me and that, per the agreement when the appointment was scheduled, which was again agreed upon in my conversation with Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
, I would call them the following week to schedule a time to conduct a final inspection. Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
begrudgingly admitted that the current circumstances were due solely to them, their decisions, and their behaviors and that I was not breaching the original agreement. He also agreed that they would complete the job that day as Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
had promised. When I returned home later that evening I discovered from my neighbor, who had agreed to care for my dogs during my absence, that
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
did not come to my home at all. On August 21, 2014 I received a telephone call at 5:17 a.m. Caller ID indicated that it was from Mr.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
at 2142833096. When I answered the call it was immediately terminated. I have not seen or heard from
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
since that time. I now have to locate another contractor to complete the job. In summary, I cannot recommend
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and will not use their services in the future.

was a huge help to us by working with our insurance company to have several different types of damage to our home repaired after a severe hail storm last year. He was very knowledgeable and professional - the painting crew, the gutter crew, and the window specialist were all very good craftsmen who made sure we were satisfied with their work and cleaned up after they were finished.

Worst. Experience. Ever.
The first step is power washing. It made a horrible mess of my clean windows. I was never told to anticipate the additional expense of window cleaning. They didn't bother to fix the problem. So yes, my house looks worse now than it did when they started.
Next is prep and painting. Workers showed up early one Saturday morning, unannounced. They started to paint our garage doors. We ran outside to tell them we needed to get our cars out. We told them we would be having a lot of family members over the next day (Sunday) and that we didn't want them to come on Sunday. They took our gutters off, left them in the yard and left for the day. (?) It rained so hard that there were huge holes where displaced roof water poured into the ground. We had to put trash cans under the water so that it wouldn't run down our house and into the basement. They covered our automatic lights with paper. We had to rip it down because it got so hot that we feared it would catch on fire.
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
said someone did call and leave a message for us to not turn on the lights, but the connection was so bad and the English so poor that we thought it was a prank. We could not make out a single word.
Sunday morning at 8:30 AM they showed up to paint again. (
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
?) We rushed out, moved our cars and told them we really didn't want them there. They worked all day and finally left at 8 PM! They drove in our yard, tearing a huge rut that needed to be filled and re-seeded. (Their driver denied it was him but since we caught this on our security cameras, there was no getting out of it.) Workers left trash, tape, and cigarette butts everywhere. Paint was dripped all over our shingles, roof, porches, landscaping and driveway. Our garage doors were painted shut. We had to use a box cutter to separate the weather stripping from the door in order to open them. None of the screened in porch and outdoor living area furniture was placed anywhere near where it started, nor was I asked where it should go. Ceiling fans were disassembled and then re-assembled incorrectly. At one point, one of the workers had his wife and two young girls just hanging out in our yard. It was 90 degrees.
The biggest problem with this company is communication. None of the workers spoke English. When we attempted to communicate with the one "English-speaking" worker, it was futile. We would have appreciated knowing when our garages or doors were going to be sealed off so that we could make alternate plans. He didn't seem to understand. When we called the office, they sent a supervisor over to trouble shoot. English was his second language, too. The supervisor seemed defensive but agreed to have someone power wash all of the paint drips. They filled the rut with topsoil and grass seed. They did not pick up all of their trash.
For $15, 000 I would expect a top-notch, detail oriented company. This is not it. I was told that only one man (the "English speaker") was an employee of
Vergennes Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and that he has to drum up other workers and pay them himself. The whole time I was thinking that I was probably employing illegal aliens. Very shady operation. We'll see how the 25 year warranty works out. I can't imagine the company will be around that long.
