House Painting reviews in Rahway

    Sparacino Painting
    John Sparacino is a contractor who wants to please and impress. He took a worn and abused backyard garage and put it back into shape. He both power washed and scraped the paint off the garage and repainted it. He removed and replaced cedar shingles and termite eaten wood. He replaced, painted, and re-hung a side door with hardware. The garage now looks almost new. Could not be more pleased.

    We were not pleased with the work of this company.  While the price is right, there were so many things that went wrong on the job that I'm not sure if I can remember all of them.
    First of all, when I hire a painter, my assumption is that they will work on my job only until the project is complete.  This was not the case.  The painters left the job for days on end, being called to other locations.  The work was sloppy in numerous places - we had to keep calling them back to correct things.  I also had bedroom furniture damaged when the workers moved my end tables to another room - they didn't take the care necessary to protect them.  Walls under light covers/cable covers were not painted - they were left the original color of the rooms.  My bedroom wall has cracked in one place already - as they didn't do the repair needed in that area evidently to prevent that from happening.  Paint has chipped in other areas - something which should not happen so soon after completion.
    At exterior painting they also didn't take care to protect elements of the home properly.  I had paint spatter covering newly installed railings at my front walkway, stains applied incorrectly on wood lattice which they installed (numerous empty areas - should have used a spray gun for that or painted it before installation), totally ruined my exterior balcony door with using too thick a layer of paint on it.  There were paint brush hairs all over the door as well, paint on screens (why they weren't removed or covered is beyond me), spattered paint on a custom mailbox, and the same on our house number plaque.  
    There is more, but I'll just leave it at it was an extremely sloppy job which took literally WEEKS to complete and I was told it would take less than 1 week.  
    While there were some circumstances that made the job take longer (some weather related and some of his workers having personal problems), the amount of errors exceeded what would be considered excusable.
    The only good thing I can say is that from far away, the house looks ok and, the owner Phil (others mention a different name, not sure why) tried to be as pleasant as possible throughout this.

    Wilber's Painting
    Nikki the estimator came right on time an was very specific about what would be done, how it would be
    done (how many coats etc.)  She emailed her estimate within a few days.  It was so reasonable that I
    called and added the crown molding work!  I received 2 other estimates and chose Wilber's both for the price
    and the professionalism that Nikki displayed.  First the carpentry guys showed up on time and installed the crown molding.
    Two days later Nikki showed up with the workers to explain everything to be done.  She was not 100% happy with a piece of the crown molding and said she would have them back to fix it. She did!  They were there the next day and everything was perfect when they left. The painters (3 men plus the supervisor) showed up on time 8:30 am and stayed and worked until 6:00 pm (supervisor was in and out) prepping the walls.  They were very good about closing off doorways and opening so the dust wouldn't get all over the place.  Showed up again on time the next day and stayed until 3:30 (I had to leave for the day).  The 3rd day only one guy showed up but did  spackling that needed to dry before the final painting.  On the last day the crew was back (showed up late!) but stayed until the job was totally    finished.  Did a good cleanup.  They didn't leave until 8:00pm.  I was very happy.  Two days later I noticed some
    paint/spackle on my front porch and sidewalk.  I also notice some paint spots on my washer/dryer in the basement next to
    the slop sink where they cleaned up.  It so happened that Nikki called that day so see if I was happy and I said very...but mentioned
    the little messes and she said she would have someone over the next day to clean it up.  Sure enough 12:00 Saturday afternoon
    the supervisor was at my door and scrubbed my porch, sidewalk and washer/dryer.  This is a long review but I wanted to let
    people know when you get a good contractor it's a wonderful thing.  It wasn't perfect but any problems were immediately     
    resolved.  Hooray!!

    This company was hired to paint the outside of my home.  He was given direction to fill in all nail holes, dents etc.  Instead of using appropriate methods such as filler, then sanding, he filled some holes with caulk and painted over them.  When we got home from work we realized that the paint was not what was chosen.  We stopped the job completely.  When we pointed out the runs in the paint and the bulging caulk, he got quite defensive.  We offered to pay him $500 for his time.  He left the paint with us and we discovered that he used interior paint.   He returned within 10 minutes saying he decided he actually wanted the paint.   Now we find out exterior paint cannot be used over interior paint until the interior paint is removed.    An additional expense added to a house half painted.  We have now stopped payment on the check. 

    This was a horrible experience and I wonder how someone like this can sleep at night.

    His bid was ridiculously high, and he said even with a four-man crew he couldn't get the work done in one day. I have had other estimates that were about half of what he was trying to charge.
