This was the most unprofessional painter I have ever encountered. He showed up late every morning, called in sick one day. His work was very sloppy, he skipped over some areas and did not paint them, left paint smeared on windows, paint runs on walls, paint splatter everywhere, nasty brush marks on large areas of wall he did paint. The contract specified that doors were to be sprayed. Instead, he used a roller on them. He made a mess in my garage. He did not clean up after himself. He left the used paint cans containing wet paint in my garage and hid 2 5 gallon pails containing liquid under job debris and trash he put in my trash bin, rather than removing it from the jobsite. Although the contract specified balance due upon completion, he asked me for payment in full before the job was completed. His work got even sloppier when he did not get his request. I finally paid him to get him out of my house. Subsequently, I had a paint professional and two professional painters inspect the job. The result was a two page list of deficiencies to be corrected which took 2 days. Two rooms, two walls,and the front door were entirely re-painted in addition to smaller areas. I myself have spent 12 to 15 hours cleaning up paint, trash, and moving furniture and things back to their proper place. The $5000 was a total waste of money. This person also presents a business card in the name of Viking Painting, Waterproofing Handyman which states that he is licensed and insured.
