House Painting reviews in Paramus

    B. Painting, LLC
    Brian responded quickly, was professional and punctual and worked quickly and efficiently. I also like the fact that he did a very good job repairing holes in the wall especially where the door knob entered the wall. He told me I needed a door stopper and went out and bought one and installed it for me to prevent the problem from happening again. I also have an elderly parent living in the house and he was considerate and understanding. His work was very good and his price was reasonable. He is one of the best painters I have ever hired.

    Diversified Painting Contrs

         I highly recommend Diversified Painting Contractors.  A fair and reasonable estimate was given for the exterior painting and deck staining.  I was also told in advance of the days and times they would be coming, and they reliably followed through for the next 3 1/2 days.  They did an extremely thorough job of power washing, scraping, and sanding.  A special weather-resistant paint was applied to the underside of the roof, which readily chips due to bad weather.  The front support columns were well reinforced.  John Russell is quite knowledgeable about home painting and related repair work.  I am extremely pleased with their very neat and clean work, ultimate professionalism, and courtesy.

    Five Star Painting of Bergen County
    Christian lead the project, and he was both friendly and professional. He was kind enough to work with us and give an affordable price for the work performed. The painters did a fantastic job, and the house looks great. I'm amazed at the difference between what it used to look like, and how it looks now. They were fast, clean, and the quality of their work is excellent. I highly recommend this company for any painting projects.

    Five Star Painting of Bergen County
    I?ve continuously had a good experience with Five Star Painting.  The first project they worked on was painting the exterior of my house.  They did a great job, so we asked them to come back and paint some rooms inside as
    well.  They were fast, efficient, and very clean.  We love how everything came out and will continue to use them.

    Terrible, terrible, terrible.  However, I understood that going with Joseph Peters was a risk.  He was the 2nd low bidder out of five bidders.  Luckily, I structured the contract & payment schedule accordingly to protect myself and therefore did not lose too much on the deal when I fired him although considerable re-work was required.  As in all reviews, don't take my word for it, photos never lie. 

    A few words to the members & Angie's List staff before the review.  It's extremely important to know who you're dealing with.  Who's selling the job, who will be overseeing the job and most importantly know the company you sign the contract with.  I deal with contractors frequently, and I've seen too many times a quote from company A but a contract from a similar sounding Company B.  Huge red flag.   Angie's List is invaluable for reviews, but it doesn't stop there.  I check outside reviews, BBB status, date the NJ company was founded, if multiple companies similar in name are founded in same town or by same principal, and status of the HIC license against the information provided.   Does the HIC license match?   For instance, Joseph's Angie's List profile states he's been in business since 1965, however the current company "Finest Home Designs LLC" of New Milford was only founded on 4/26/13.  This is a potential red flag which could mean he may have gone out of business a few times in the last 50 years or perhaps it's just an administrative change.  I would later find out from Joseph that the business is NOT in his names but rather his wife's.  This was news to me & also a potential red flag.

    I consider myself very lucky that Joseph's crew didn't show most of the time.  This allowed me to inspect the minor amount of work completed and uncover considerable faults & deviations from our contract & the approved plans.  Both the underlying construction + the final finishing options are important, however finishing can always be replaced.   The most important aspect is the underlying "foundation" of construction materials for long lasting quality.  This is where Joseph skimped. 


    Joseph knows construction.  He spent a good amount of time coming up with a solution for a few projects I had in mind.  However, his quotes were astronomical and I chose to test him with the fireplace project.  The price for the doghouse was reasonable with a moderate amount of profit .


    Schedule & communication: Another reviewer noted that Joseph was impossible to get in touch with except for text message.  This is very important I would come to find.  Joseph said the work would take 1-2 weeks, I gave him double that and he wasn't even 30% complete.  Joseph never responded to calls, voicemails, emails and only a handful of text requests at his choosing.  He never once provided a schedule or even a heads up of who/when folks would be showing up at my house.  He personally showed up at my house once only at 6:15am unannounced, luckily my wife saw him and I was able to speak with him. 

    Homeowners don't realize how important it is to get a "Broker certified, Certificate of Insurance (COI)" listing the homeowner as an insured on the contractors policy.   The homeowner needs to be listed as an additional insured to be fully covered & to ensure the policy isn't cancelled mid-project.  This was a requirement of our contract which Joseph & his crew never fulfilled.  What's so important is that Joseph used (2) non-english speaking immigrants to do the work.  This in & of itself is not a problem, they did decent work if somewhat messy, but they were not covered by his policy since they were not employees.  If anything happened to them, it would be on my home owners policy. These guys couldn't afford to buy a $35 extension chord, they're lucky they didn't die or get seriously hurt using this modified chord  (See attached photo). 

    Quality: These guys cut corners to save effort & pennies in materials, literally.  Rebar never installed in footing, CMU not properly installed nor did end result match existing color (grey vs. white) coloring additive would have cost a few dollars, anchors not installed correctly, framing for fireplace were wrong dimensions.  Instead of properly cutting my existing vinyl siding, they tore it all off along exposing my home to the elements for 2+ weeks.  They also pulled a LIVE ELECTRICAL WIRE outside the house & left it open to the elements.  (see photos).  Once Joseph made sure my house was open to the elements and he assumed I was vulnerable, he pulled the oldest trick in the book & decided he wanted to renegotiate the contract.  

    In the end, I asked Joseph to my house to review these issues & refused to make the 2nd payment install for "framing".  He only performed 1/2 the framing (much of it incorrectly) and did a terrible job with the CMU & wanted to be paid.  The completion date of 3-weeks had already passed and Joseph hadn't purchased a single finishing materials (Sheetrock, insulation, vinyl siding, caulk, nails etc. etc. ).  Joseph then came to my house & unexpectedly brought his wife, apparently the owner.  They wanted payment of which I refused many times until work completed & issues fixed.  We met in my dining room with the fireplace framing 6' away, they both refused to review the work.  THEY NEVER REVIEWED THE WORK!   They also asked if I would write a blank check or call Lowes & authorize credit card purchases on my behalf with my card number.   In the end, we went our separate ways. 

    Joseph refused to relocate a single electrical outlet which was clearly listed (as item #1) of the contract.  Joseph said that he wasn't going to comply with the contract unless he received substantially more money than originally negotiated in the contract.  Lastly, Joseph attended a meeting with the fireplace unit vendor in which we made 1 or 2 changes.  A written recap of the meeting was circulated to all parties to confirm what was discussed & a no cost impact for these minor changes.   Joseph performed the changes (redux in scope) that were in his favor & did not comply with the additions in scope & tried to play a game.  I finished the fireplace without him (see photos).

    In summary, I took a calculated risk with Joseph.  The risk didn't pan out but the contract & payment terms were structured in a way as to not hurt me vert much.   Lastly, don't ever rely on "Town Approval" of certain conditions.  Joseph had received "Approval" for footing & framing inspections.   However, he didn't meet most of the contract conditions.   Towns in Northern NJ usually only check to make sure you're not building with Popsicle sticks.   In this particular case & the inspection I personally scheduled, no one asked for approved plans & the inspectors go by first names only.   There's no documentation except for a sticker with no identifying marks for town, permit # or inspector credentials.   Building to code is the most minimal/terrible standard you can build to and should not be accepted.  I've heard way too many times a contractor say "It passed inspection" so you must accept it - So what? No I Don't have to accept it.  The Inspectors aren't reviewing the approved plans many times let along verifying that you're contract requirements have been met.

    Mark Tirondola Painting Contractor Inc
    Mark himself called very promptly after I called for an estimate. I chose them because of a recommendation from a person I knew even though his price was quite a bit higher. I never saw or heard from Mark again; He sent someone to collect a deposit and for me to sign a contact. The painters that actually came were EXCELLENT! They were on time and neat. I had a problem with paint that almost immediatley peeled on my outside door. When the supervisor, Joe Padovano, came to collect the final payment, I mentioned it to him and he assured me he would send someone back to repair it. No one ever came and after waiting three weeks I called the office and spoke to Rose. She said she would notify Mark. I called twice more and I finally gave up as no one ever responded. Two weeks ago a received an e-mail from Mark asking for a favorable review in "Best of Essex" magazine. I sent a reply explaining exactly what I wrote above. He wrote back that it would be taken care of. Again, nothing happened. Although the painters were such hard workers and did fine work, I am giving this company an F for incredibly poor customer service. I am glad I didn't have a bigger problem.

    RJT Custom Builders
    We met at the house. went through the work. I was told I would get a proposal in a week. 3 weeks later I followed up with an email, and later that night I got an email with a proposal for 4 of the items, one being the roof for 14,500. I had previously recieved quotes for between 5000 and 8000 for a new roof for this small ranch house. It was a rushed, high ball incomplete quote. If he didnt want to do the job, he should have told me and not wasted 3 weeks of my time.

    North Jersey Specialists Inc

    I have been very satisfied with the quality of the work.  The house is sided with cedar shakes.  The paint lasts about 9 to 10 years before requiring a recoat.  (The trim lasts about half that interval.)  Very little peeling occurs in that interval; the trim has always been the worst offender.  The house is power washed in preparation.  Primer is used as required.  Spray equipment is used to apply the paint.   The paint is applied evenly without any runs.  Overspray is basically non-existent.

    The workmen arrive when scheduled.  Rich, the owner is there during the beginning of the job and periodically during the job.  His foreman is there during the entire job.
