Quit on the job after being upset saying he was being worked too hard. 3 weeks before he quit he was given a deadline. We cut the work in half when there was only a week left, still was not enough. On the day of the deadline I asked him if he hung a few pictures and he got a MAJOR attitude and started throwing wood in my garage saying he was tired and over worked. After I yelled back saying don’t you throw stuff in my garage he started calling me son and quit. He demanded to be paid, collected all his stuff but left all the trash and open paint containers and used paint rolling bins and such. He still got paid for the job he didn’t even finish half way. I was hoping he would calm down and realize after still being paid like he did a job, he would man up and come finish the jobs he was paid to do, however after realizing how bad the job was being done it was probably a blessing is disguise that he ended up being a very Dishonest person. I have had pictures fall off the wall, he installed a door handle and ruined the door (which he had me pay $200 for) he made a cubby for a cable box that has split wood and is not even, and the best part... he didn’t even put holes for the called to run through. I wish I could add more pictures. I don’t know what was worse, that I had to throw $3500 down the drain using him, then hire someone to fix his mess, or the fact he is ok with having what he did to me on his conscious. I wouldn’t even hire him to take the trash out.May 13, 2018VerifiedKen Garr Painting's reply
Client terminated agreement suddenly prior to completion of job and was unable to address any questions or concerns he may have had.
House looks excellent. Everything was kept clean throughout.May 29, 2017Verified
Was quoted $850 then I added landing and hallway went to $950 which was good, when I went to pay he said it was $1400. Had to come back and touch up several areas. I would ask for quote in writing.May 11, 2017Verified
He painted my entire downstairs. It looks amazing. He is efficient and does an amazing job. He leaves no mess behind. Would definitely hire again.Sep 11, 2016Verified
