It didn't.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I sent them a message regarding a paint job for my house and they never got back to me. They didn't bother to call or send me a quick email. Nothing. I think that common courtesy would be to reply to the person. I recently heard back from someone else who informed me they had too many jobs at the moment and weren't taking any new clients. I appreciate that. That's what professionals do.

SERVICE PROVIDER RESPONSE

My apologies for not responding to your e-mail. I was dealing with an unexpected family emergency last week and, while our Office Administrator has returned every call we've received while I've been out, some of the e-mail requests that I've received personally (of which yours is one) were not handled as promptly as they should have been. I would be happy to contact you this week to discuss your p...

Certa Pro did not cover furniture and floors.  Luckily the paint came off the furniture.  I still occasionally find spots of paint on my floors.  I have been scrapping paint of windows, mirrors and floors for months.  They did not fill holes and cracks or sand scuff the walls as described in the prep part of our contract.  They hardly taped anything and their lines were wavey.  I had them redo the...

Thank you for taking the time to review our business [Member Name Removed] We take great pride in the quality of our work and without good, honest customer feedback, it's difficult to improve. Obviously, in this case, I'm very sorry that we were not able to meet your expectations. As you stated in your response, I did offer to personally conduct a complete walk-thru of the project with you and let...

John was able come to my home for an estimate in the very next morning after I contacted him. Very professional and explained everything in detail. His bid was not the lowest but his professionalism made me very comfortable with him and hired him on the spot. John was able to work with my tight schedule and finish the project on time before my floor installation. We had a few bumps (literally) and...

John and his team provided excellent service. He offered some design assistance and paint samples so we could make a decision about our color scheme. The quote was competitive compared to the others we received but more service was included for the price. CertaPro also has all the required insurance and worker's comp paperwork that the other bidders did not have. They also include a two year warra...

I just had two big jobs done on my home.  One, was painting the entire exterior of the house and the other was to clean up, sand and stain a beautiful staircase that was installed in the house many years ago, but never finished. I am extremely happy with the work John, Casey and their team did on my home. John was great with communicating and following up with me.  Always making sure, the job was ...

My entire experience with John and Casey from Certa Pro painters was top-notch. John demonstrated professionalism, accuracy, and good old customer service. Throughout the entire job, from the initial estimate to working with my budget constrictions he does all he can to make the experience exceptional. Casey was my job foreman and rescued a fireplace that was held together with bubblegum a masking...
