Joe doesn't seem to know some of the basics of exterior painting. He didn't put drop cloths down to catch the old paint he removed which is required by the state of Indiana when painting old houses due to the use of lead based paint. When approached about this he did test the paint, but when lead was found in the paint chips he left in the yard, he made no attempt to remedy the problem. He did finish quickly, but too quickly as it turns out. All the paint and glazing that he put up began to fail after about 9 mths. He was notified when the failure began. He took responsibility, and stated that he would fix the problem. It took him over a year to get around to it, and he only repaired one side of the house. Since it had taken so long we were just glad that he was going to fix the worst of it. Also he stated that the failure was due to the ?old existing paint? and he wouldn?t be responsible for the work after that day (our house was built in 1902 I wish he would have told us he didn?t know how to paint older homes). Having worked summers for a my father who was a house painter many years ago I could tell that Joe hadn?t done the appropriate prep work before applying the paint or the glazing for the windows which is why it failed. There were other minor issues- he left a large broken pane of glass that he was hired to replace in our backyard, he tagged our fence with paint in a few spots, he removed and misplaced hanging plant hooks, etc., in general there was very little attention to detail. On bright note the railing and pillars seem to work fine.
