Kevin promised the job would be done under 4 days, and we were basing our moving truck on this quote. It ended up taking 3 guys over 10 days to do the job and they were slobs. We even fed them every day and bought the paint ourselves. We purchased expensive drop cloths, which they did not use, saying they were experts and never spilled. Well, of course, on our brand new carpeting, they did, as wel...

THIS IS AN EXACT TRANSCRIPT OF THE MESSAGE I RECEIVED FROM HIM ABOUT THREE DAYS LATER: "YEAH LIZ, THIS IS KEVIN THE PAINTER, I'M JUST LEAVING YOU A MESSAGE TO LET YOU KNOW YOU'RE A PHONY, AND YOU'RE DISHONEST, AND YOU LIKE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF CONTRACTORS. YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF, AND AS FAR AS YOU'RE GOING TO TELL ANGIE'S LIST, I DON'T EVEN GIVE A D---. I THINK YOU'RE A JERK, YOU'RE A MO...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
KEVIN AND HIS CREW PAINTED OUR ENCLOSED STAIRCASE AND THE CEILINGS OF TWO DECKS. ALTHOUGH THEY DID A GOOD ENOUGH JOB, THEY FAILED TO CLEAN UP, WHICH WAS AN EXPLICITLY AGREED-UPON COMPONENT OF THE JOB. WHEN CONFRONTED, KEVIN OFFERED TO DO A SMALL JOB, SUCH AS PAINTING A ROOM OR A PORCH, IN EXCHANGE FOR HAVING NOT CLEANED UP. I TOLD HIM I WOULD CALL HIM IN THE SPRING. WHEN I CALLED HIM IN TO ARRANGE FOR HIM TO COME AND PAINT A SINGLE BEDROOM, HE AGREED TO DO SO AND SAID I SHOULD CALL HIM ONE WEEK BEFORE I NEEDED IT DONE. I CALLED HIM ABOUT TEN TIMES WITH NO RESPONSE, AND IN MY FINAL MESSAGE I TOLD HIM THAT IF I DIDN'T HEAR BACK FROM HIM I WOULD ASSUME THAT HE WAS NOT COMING AND THAT I WOULD DO MY ANGIE'S LIST REPORT AS I WOULD HAVE LAST FALL HAD HE NOT OFFERED TO MAKE GOOD FOR HIS FAILURE TO CLEAN UP.

KEVIN WAS VERY PROMPT WITH RETURNING PHONE CALLS, AND STARTING ON TIME. HE ALSO, WORKED WELL AROUND OUR SCHEDULES. HE WAS VERY HELPFUL WITH PICKING OUT THE COLORS AND HIS PAINTERS WERE VERY PLEASANT AND NEAT. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

WE HIRED THE COMPANY TO PAINT 2.5 FLOORS AND THE STAIRWELLS TO 2 FLOORS. WE WENT WITH 2 DISTINCT COLORS. AT THE END OF THE FIRST DAY, THEY HAD PAINTED 1.5 FLOORS THE WRONG COLOR...2 SHADES TOO LIGHT. THE OWNER AGREED TO HAVE IT PAINTED THE CORRECT COLOR AT NO ADDITIONAL COST AND THEN TO RETURN AND PAINT OUR FRONT PORCH (AN EARLIER ESTIMATE OF $300) FOR FREE. WE DEEMED THIS ACCEPTABLE AND EVEN GAVE...

SERVICE PROVIDER RESPONSE

IN RESPONSE TO THE MEMBER''S REPORT ON MY COMPANY, I THINK IT WAS A VERY UNFAIR RATING. I HAD TO COMPLETELY REPAINT ALL THE AREAS IN HER HOME FOR NO CHARGE. AFTER SHE SAW THE COLORS ON THE WALLS, SHE WAS NOT HAPPY WITH HOW IT LOOKED, BUT THAT WAS THE COLOR SHE CHOSE, NOT ME. SO BEING THE PROFESSIONAL I AM, I WANTED TO MAKE HER HAPPY AND BE FAIR. IN THIS REPORT, I WAS ALSO ACCUSED OF GETTING PAINT ...
