We hired Cody Weiss to do various painting projects including painting the outside of our entire house, painting the kitchen cabinets, painting a swingset, painting interior doors. There were several other odd jobs that that he also did, including installing new lighting. Cody asked that I pay him in advance one day for work he said would be completed by the end of the day. He said it would really help him out. Unfortunately, I trusted him and I paid him almost all the money. Of course, the work he said would be completed that day didn't happen. A kitchen cabinet is still completely unpainted and the custom cabinet doors that Cody supposedly had made were not installed. Also, they got paint on my microwave. There’s only 1 coat of paint on the brick mailbox and it looks horrible. There's also only 1 coat of paint on the garage door and there's paint on one of the windows. A circle vent on our house was supposed to be replaced & painted and it never was, making our house look undone. It's embarrassing. They got paint all over the slide of the swingset and didn’t finish painting the wood. I communicated with him over a period of 5 months to try to schedule him to come out to finish our job. It turned out that Cody lives 1.5 hours away from us. I wouldn’t have hired him if I knew that. About 10 different times we made plans for him to come. My husband would take off work to meet him. Then Cody would call and explain a personal tragedy that prevented him from coming. A car broke down. His fiance's daughter was in a horrible accident and almost died. His fiance’s parent died. His mom died. He was on his way once and someone fell and he had to turn around to go help. Now, maybe all those things truly happened. However, I did wonder if Cody was stringing me along, trying to get me to finally blow up and yell at him. That way, when I give him a bad review, he can say it was undeserved and I was a bad customer. Well, I never did blow up. I was very patient and kind. I have the text messages to prove it. Finally, he said that he had PTSD and he wouldn’t be able to finish my job. He said he would send me the custom cabinet doors in the mail along with a $400 refund check… as long as I didn’t leave a bad review. I agreed to this and I waited. He said he mailed them. This I can confirm was a bold, flat out lie. Weeks have gone by and the doors never arrived. I work from home and my office is right next to the front door. No deliveries came. He cannot claim that he mailed it and it must have been stolen off our porch. So I’m giving 2 stars because I paid him thousands and now I have to spend more money hiring someone else to finish. The only reason I'm not giving 1 star is because some of the work he did complete was pretty good. If you hire him, make sure you don't pay him anything until the work is 100% complete.Feb 3, 2019VerifiedWeise Choice Construction's reply
First off this job was not paid for up front and the customer still has $200 left on the invoice. This is ridiculous to post my personal issues on here and personal health issues. Also for posting my service related disability without my consent, is a violation of the ADA.
These are not experienced painters. They do sloppy work and leave a mess of paint stains over carpet and flooring. We had asked him to repaint as the work was very shotty and precious darker colors seeped through the lighter paint work. After asking him to redo the areas it still was crappy job. Although it’s been several months I’ve had to rehire a new crew to finish painting missed areas in ceilings, base boards and other areas were dripped dry paint had to be sanded down and repainted entire house. This was an expensive hire and seemed as he hires young inexperienced workers.Apr 17, 2019VerifiedWeise Choice Construction's reply
It's been over 7 months since we finished this job. There was nothing to redo just touch ups which we did same day. The husband after everything was done and taken care of did a walk through and said everything looked good. Find it odd that 7 months went by and they never called me about these issues.
Cody was very professional and did a great job in my master bedroom and walk in closet . I am very pleased with the way it turned out. I highly recommended for any painting project. His price is very affordable. I will be hiring him for future painting projects.Aug 9, 2018VerifiedWeise Choice Construction's reply
Thank you so much Marge! It was a pleasure working for you!
I hired Weise Choice Painting to caulk and paint approximately 150 linear feet of trim and stairs; I'd be supplying all the paint, which I did. For this, he quoted $190.00 as I declined an hourly rate as I'd done with all previous Thumbtack contractors as one cannot control the rate/speed one works. Cody Weise stated that his team consisted of two people. When he arrived on the date agreed, it was only Cody. Of course, he never finished the job as he worked at a snail's pace, and took smoke breaks often. In so much there was another contractor working another project, so, he was to return to complete the task, along with that of another with that price, including the $190.00 being a total of $675.00; the invoice reflected $0.00 balance due, which I should not have paid until the entire job was completed. When he returned, he showed up alone again, with another story about his having to fire his helper, tried to manipulate me out of another $425.00, which I'd paid previously, and left before completing the job. I have 32 years of military service. This guy may be a veteran, but he didn't learn ethos, nor military values. I'd take another look at those, so called reviews, as I suspect that they were posted by someone VERY close to him or he himself. This guy lacks integrity. I spoke directly to Thumbtack about this guy and I feel I'm not the only consumer he's stuck a finger in... Hire him at your own risk!!! I wouldn't hire him again if my life depended on it.Jul 29, 2018VerifiedWeise Choice Construction's reply
I'll post the original invoice on here for everyone to see. You are a con artist and do this to other contractor and don't pay. You saw the original invoice where it showed the $425 and then you wrote a check realizing your mistake. Yes original quote over the phone was $190 upon looking at the job which was a lot more work than stated, you said do it. After you talked to me about the shed being painted we came to an agreement for $1000 and you paid $675 that day. You are a bad person and what you have done is horrible.
Drywall Installation and Hanging
Cody and his company recently remodeled the interior of my garage (detached) addition drywall, insulation and a nice texture. I could not be happier with the results and final look of the garage. I now feel like I have a garage that can actually be utilized for storage.Dec 27, 2019Verified
