Painter blamed for missing Naperville window shutter

Painter blamed for missing Naperville window shutter

COMPLAINT: Anna Simeon, Naperville, Ill.

I hired 1st Choice Painting Company in Glendale Heights to paint the exterior of my house, including several related jobs, such as removing, painting and then replacing the shutters.

I paid the painter at the end of the second day, because he estimated completing the job the next day, when I would not be at home.

Nothing indicated that he would have a problem completing the job as scheduled. But the work that was scheduled to be completed in my absence was not done. The shutters were not painted or reinstalled. In fact, the painter took one shutter, which is still missing.

On two different dates, at my insistence, two other painters were sent to my home to complete the job. They demonstrated poor painting skills and even worse people skills. They did not reinstall any of the shutters. I had to have someone else do that.

DESIRED RESOLUTION: I want the missing shutter replaced and for it to match the other shutters.
