I wish I would've read the reviews on yelp before hiring Anthony's to paint my interior and exterior doors this fall. Most of his Angie's list reviews are stellar but I'd like to save folks the time and hassle we've experienced with this unscrupulous business. I'm wondering if he's gotten too big/busy and has started hiring inexperienced crew members. At any rate, here is our story: In September Anthony came out to bid a job for me. I had 24 brand new interior doors that had been botched by a previous painter. He assured me his crew could make them look fantastic, told me exactly how they would sand, prep and paint them (SW Emerald and Duration). I felt confident I was in good hands and we scheduled an Oct 9th start date. On October 9th, Anthony sent over 2 crew members who removed the doors and began the process. My finish carpenter who has been building my stairs kind of monitored them and offered to help them make a key so they would be able to re-hang them without trouble. They said NO and this was the first sign of things to come. We have 24 interior doors, many close to the same size; you would think an experienced painter would know this is standard practice to make the job go smoothly. After 2 weeks of work, with zero communication from the two Alaskan crew guys (who I've heard are still working for Anthony and are totally incompetent), nothing from Anthony, nothing from his admin Amy, I contacted Amy and said, "Can someone please tell me whats going on?" The excuse made was that Sherwin Williams messed up and gave them DTM (direct to metal paint) and they were actually trying to paint the doors with this paint. Obviously this wasn't going to work, so they would have to start over again. Re-sanding and re-painting. We were willing to give them another chance. In the meantime, the Alaskan crew started working on the exterior doors (we have three sets of brand new french doors that I hired them to paint as well). No one was filling the nail holes; when I asked them to do so, the response was, yes we can do that for you. Excuse me? These are brand new, unprimed windows. Is filling nail holes not standard practice? They also started pulling the tape and paper off after one coat of exterior paint. You could very clearly see the gray primer underneath. These were exterior doors! In addition, they were not using the Duration paint that was agreed upon in the bid and contract. I called Amy in tears. Anthony agreed to come out on the weekend and discuss the project with us.He assured us again he would make it right. He took the Alaskan guys off the job and sent his best guy, Terry, to make sure the interior doors were done right. The following weekend as Terry started bringing the thrice sanded and painted doors in to install it was clear they weren't up to par. There was now even MORE damage to the doors than before. Many gouge marks where the sanders dug too deep into the doors, finger prints as the latex paint wasn't cured yet, uneven spray, tons of dust build up in the corners that hadn't been properly sanded. To make matters worse, they installed many of the doors in the wrong places because there was no key. Again for a second time, my finish carpenter offered to help (definitely being paid for his time) and they said no. There were many places where they damaged the door casings and drywall trying to re-hang. It is a total disaster. I texted Anthony that Saturday saying, I want to trust you will make this right but I'm starting to get frustrated. He texted me back saying Terry would make them right. After this we didn't hear from Anthony, Amy or Terry for a week. No one showed up the whole following week to work or tell us what was going on. We called Anthony again on Wednesday, getting no response. Last night I sent Anthony a text telling him we were wholly dissatisfied with the quality of work, professionalism and communication and we would be terminating the contract (thankfully we haven't paid him a dime). He responded it would cost 45% of the contract price. I told him that was ludicrous; I would be willing to pay him $900 which was the agreed upon price for painting the exterior doors and windows if he cared to finish that job up. But that I would not pay him a dime for the interior doors which were now even more damaged than they were before. This is the exact response I got from him: "My crew have been over there trying there (sic) best to please you. And everyday, it's something different. There's no way we can please you from this point. All the labor and time we put in just went to waist (sic). We will not complete the exterior of your home. You were not giving my company or my workers a chance to do what we do everyday. We primed those doors, sanded them and painted them twice for you. If you don't want us back on your property, I will let everyone know not to go back" This is just a total fabrication of the hot mess we've experienced over the last month. PLEASE don't EVER use Anthony's. We are now in worse shape than we were before.
