Please protect your family, home, property and hard earned savings--do not use this company for anything. The owner, Al, will present an excellent sales pitch but does not follow through or provide quality work. He also operated with complete disregard for the safety of our family. We used a siding repair deal on Angie's List to connect with Al and got a bid for painting and working on the exterior of our home--an expensive project. He came over and was exceedingly thorough during the walk through and sales pitch and pointed out all of the things he would do on our home. We went with Al, although his bid was very high, as our home is not new and we believed he would follow through on what he said and had in the contract. However, the work he performed was not at all similar to what he repeatedly said he would do. He said he would carefully work on the siding, windows and trim before painting, but did little to no work before subcontracting the painting to another crew (whom he said he had no ability to control). We also contracted with him to build a shed in our carport. He rushed both jobs and left parts undone. We paid him in full after a final walk through in which my husband and Al walked through and discussed exactly what needed to be done. Al stressed that the work would be completed and that he needed the full payment. He left almost immediately after getting the check and he did not complete the work that he directly said he would do, which included aspects that were irrefutably in the contract (for example, he did not paint over numerous areas that he caulked after the painting). As it did rain that afternoon, we gave him the benefit of the doubt for many weeks during which we directly followed up with him with pictures of the unfinished work; he said the work could not be done as the house was not new and he would only come back if we paid him at least $275 for no more than 2 hours. The idea that the work cannot be done is absolutely wrong--my husband has and will continue to do the work Al did not do when he can squeeze it in on his few days off of work--quality work just takes a little more time and care, which is what we thought we were paying for. For example, my husband has already fixed the mistakes Al made with the shed. Importantly, his work and carelessness was completely unsafe: he left a considerable amount of old paint chips, nails and other small and dangerous materials all over our property. We have two small children and my husband and father spent a few hours each on the clean up of the debris Al left all over our property. Although the contract stated that he would "Removed (sic) existing shelves attached to the house" he later said this did not actually mean he would remove the materials, but only that he would take it down and leave it on our property. Al actually said, "It is your problem, what am I supposed to do with the materials?" Moreover, the placement of these heavy materials directly on our fence caused this older, but previously sound, fence to break, which he again said was our problem and it was a risk we took by working with a contractor.
