Lake Forest painting company accused of shoddy work

Lake Forest painting complaint

COMPLAINT: Marianne Seay, Lake Forest

"I hired Hyatt Painting Co. to power wash my house and do some exterior painting, including my deck table and chairs. I guess the person I worked with is the company's owner. The total estimate was $1,280; I gave him a $680 deposit.

"He was very sincere and gave me good prices, but I had a bad feeling his first day of work. He didn't come fully equipped and asked to use my ladder. He didn't have a really good cleaner and my house needed a really good power washing.

"I went out for the day and when I came back, the house looked worse. I called and asked him to come back. I bought a good cleaner and gave it to him to use. However, he didn't do the job properly - only approximately half of the house is clean. The two chairs he painted have since started to peel, and must be sanded and repainted.

DESIRED RESOLUTION: "I want a $430 refund to hire another contractor to finish the power washing and repair the two chairs."

STATUS: Penalty Box
