Proposal included exterior pressure washing of driveway and house. Interior Painting of Bedroom and Bathroom to include ceilings along with interior trim of a door. Exterior Painting to include 2,600 sf House, Screened Porch, Trim, Soffit, Garage and Doors. Rob mentioned he would provide some services "free of charge", and at the end of the day the bottom line price was $6,500. We paid a total deposit to purchase materials for $2,650 beginning 03-Nov - the job started the first week in December and was completed on 20-Dec. Once a portion of the home was completed he requested a "draw" of $2,500 prior to the completion of the job. I indicated I prefer to pay once the job is complete but he said he really needed the money and claims I previously agreed to this - which I do not recall, nor did I ever sign. Additionally, the check was incorrectly written on my behalf and he notified me via text quite directly stating the exact date and time he would arrive for the remainder of the draw. He did not ask me when the best time would be or a convenient time being we are the customer - it was on his terms. I did not appreciate his lack of professionalism - especially given our current state of having an ill infant which he was aware of. He also took advantage of the fact that we just so happened to be home with our infant even though we have multiple doctors appointments we need to attend, in addition to our day jobs, and without notice would show up and expect to have access to the home without prior scheduling. This was a burden to our family. Before they were to paint the porch I specifically asked if we needed to move all of our outdoor furniture into the garage to make space - he said they would move all of the furniture to the middle of the porch and cover it with plastic. Well, when I arrived at home that evening all of our furniture - dining table, 6 chairs with cushions, two sofas with cushions, two arm chairs with cushions, and two coffee tables, along with a childrens table - was outside getting rained on. My husband and I had to move most of the items under the porch by ourselves with two small children to look after at the same time - needless to say this was unacceptable. When I questioned why our furniture was left outside he acknowledged he knew and that he simply did not think it was going to rain that evening (80% chance of rain, and quite frankly he lives close by and should have known it was raining). The following morning I asked Rob if they were going to finish power washing the driveway and complete the painting of the interior door frame. He said he would do the power washing but did not have time to paint the interior of the door frame because he needed to start his Christmas shopping, of course he then requested the remainder of the money due - "$1,520". I quickly reiterated that the value he was expecting was more than what I anticipated and his invoice was not clear (. He said he wanted $20 to replace the weather stripping on the front door which was originally agreed to in the price of the $6,500... as he acknowledged the replacement months prior). He also said he would return "sometime after Christmas to paint the door frame". I stated this was unacceptable and we did not appreciate his lack of communication, unprofessionalism, and his continued boastfulness about his work considering we were not happy for several reasons. In the end Rob indicated he wanted to do a good job and he wanted us to be happy and we stated why we were unhappy - door frame not painted, weather stripping not done, furniture left in the rain, and the attempt to add costs he previously stated were "free". I feel there were very simple ways to make us happy and he was not willing to meet them. I would not recommend him in the future for these reasons, even though the overall paint job was satisfactory.
