Portland Lead Paint Removal Reviews
First of all, the crew was atrocious with their containment and clean up. I do not think he trained them properly and I wouldn't be surprised if this was their first timing doing lead paint removal. I have a toddler but I contained my frustration after the first day, hoping they would clean it well when they finished. However, that was a serious violation already - containment is an important part of the process and I was finding fresh paint chips 25 feet out from the house. When I came back the second day and they claimed they were done, it took all I could to maintain calmness. They had turned my yard into an hazard. Small chips were everywhere and when I demanded they spend more time cleaning, picking up every speck they could find by hand
Secondly, he does not use proper equipment in my estimation. I took a picture of his wet/dry vac and it's a Ridgid model WD1450. A WET/DRY vac, not a
He then vocalized his concern that I was trying to get out of paying him, which I was not, horrified as I was. After almost 2 more hours of them crawling around destroying the yard due to the mess they made I gave up and paid him. I probably should have pushed this and explored my options because of course then he was gone and unresponsive.

When I tried to contact him to let him know that his job cost me an extra $450 because they hadn't actually done the job the advertised he was, perhaps not surprisingly, unresponsive.
I have been collecting evidence and exploring my options, the least of which is to report him to the CCB for unsafe practices - he can try to sell them on his shop vac being appropriate. But I feel cheated for a job that ended up costing me even more than the already steep price he charged and left me paranoid about the safety of letting my son crawl around our yard. I feel he owes me some money back and he refuses to respond to me. I saved pieces of the siding, soil before and after his visit, and documented everything with pictures. If you are considering hiring him, I suggest you plan to do the same. I had hoped I could include pictures in my review but it seems that's not a part of the Angie's List process.
In summary, he gets the best
They worked quickly, were thorough and cleaned up beautifully. They did an excellent job and were very easy to work with. I've never seen a crew work so hard.
The quote landed right in the middle of 2 other quotes and I felt that
They started within a couple days of signing the papers. It was one day to wash, one day to prep, and another day to paint, with some small touch ups the next day. I was unable to be present at anytime while all of the work was being done, and every day when I came home, the house and yard was clean and tidy. I was very comfortable and confident that the crew would respect my home while I was gone.
