Josh and crew did a great job updating my interior paint. They made it look easy, even though it wasn't. Very impressed with the quality and attention to detail. I recommend anyone looking for paint work to consider hiring Color World. I plan to hire again!

Color World Housepainting did an incredible job with the exterior of our home. They were easy to work with, responsive, professional and most of all reasonably priced. I have already recommended them to several friends and family members. We will be using them for all our future painting needs!!

I’m giving Color World 2 stars because although Scott was pleasant to work with, when the sale is over you end up working with the subcontractors. In our case it was Alex. The contract was printed out and given to me by Scott with a step by step guide sheet on how the job was supposed to go. Step 1, “Washing”. Alex did wash the house. Step 2, “Tarping”. This is where problems began. Alex painted leaves still attached to bushes right onto the house. He painted sunflower seeds and ground debris onto the house. If tarps were used around the house, they served no purpose. He’d show up anywhere from 1:00 -2:30 on most days and he’d be gone before the clock struck 4. We have paint overspray all over our deck, the brick, the flowers around the house, in the grass and a tree. They also painted around the edges of our new metal window frames after I specifically said we did not want the frames painted. If fact, Scott said he never recommends painting metal frames because the paint won’t last. We now have that problem waiting for us. Step 3, “Scraping” and Step 4, “Priming” should go hand in hand. I’m not sure about any scrapping he may have done but it was determined by Color World that priming wasn’t necessary because the primer was built into the paint. Note: we went from fading dark brown to Lemongrass and a cream colored trim. After the job was completed, we can see where touch up will be needed to cover over brown spots still left on the house. Step 5, “Caulking” (per the contract) “ joints and seams allowing exterior moisture entry will be caulked anywhere that wood meets wood”. This step was completely left out. It would not have been done had I not noticed and brought it to Scott’s attention. Scott acknowledged it and then told me that some of the joints may be there to “allow for drainage” as if I was a complete idiot, but he’d check it out. Scott and I walked around the house while he was working up the quote and we specifically talked about the joints and the need to caulk PRIOR to painting. This wasn’t done so Alex and his helper ended up caulking the seams over the paint. I sent a message to Scott to let him know my concerns which he followed up with a call. His answer was basically to just wait until they’re completely finish and he was sure the house would look great. Step 8, “Daily Cleaning”. Alex rinsed out the blue paint from my neighbors house from his hoses and machine on our side yard, opposite my neighbors house (see below). They left their spray paint machine, ladders, paint buckets filled with paint water and various tools in our yard when they left for the day. Due to their previous schedule or weather, those things stayed in our yard, overnight for multiple days. That’s not “pack up and pick up at the end of the day” to me. On the final day they were here, Alex spray painted our downspouts in the back yard with no tarps down which left a huge area of our yard painted as well as our Juniper tree! Before the painting began, my neighbor asked me who I’d contracted with so I gave him Color Worlds information and Scott’s number. He hired Color World too. However, even though I’d hired and given our down payment to Color World to paint my house first, they finished my neighbors house first and in a day and a half! Just to give perspective of the mess they left us, our neighbor mentioned one drop of paint the size of a quarter left on his driveway! That’s it! My house took a week and a half and we have the neighbors paint and our paint all over the place. Why? Undervalued customer? Dumped on? It sure feels like it. The final inspection was done with Scott and my husband during which Scott saw all the questionable areas of concern, acknowledged all of them and apologized profusely. He even took pictures. When asked how we should go about removing all the paint from the bricks around the front door and elsewhere on the house, he kindly suggested using a product called M1. I should also mention that he did offer to send someone back out to try to fix these concerns but at that point we didn’t want to extend the unpleasantness any further and told him no. As much as I appreciated that Scott didn’t try to make excuses, our feelings of being undervalued customers remain. Whether Scott uses this as a learning opportunity for the health of this budding company or not or if he continues to use that particular subcontractor in the future is not my concern. But at the end of the day, we remain unsatisfied, undervalued and unappreciated customers who have a lot of hard cleanup to do on our house. We won’t use this company again and I won’t be recommending them to friends or family. One last note. In today’s world, customer service, a job well done shown by pride in the work you do will end up being your greatest asset. Having none of this will be your downfall and will most likely be the beginning to the end for any business.
