The College Pro Painting rep came out to our home and gave an estimate to re-stain our cedar deck. I have done it myself about every 5 years since it was built in 1993 but the prep work is backbreaking so I decided to go with College Pro based on the eager personality of the rep who came to our house. She promised they would scraped off all the loose stain, sand all the surfaces and apply 2 coats of stain. She came back personally the day before the job was to begin and pressure washed the deck and told us the rest of the job would take about 2-3 days because of all the sanding and scraping required, we gave her a $500 deposit. A couple of days later they arrived after my wife and I had both left for work and when I got home at mid-afternoon that day they were gone and a coat of stain had been applied. No sanding or scraping had been done! She arrived at out door that evening saying the job was done and wanted to be paid the remaining $500. I n the end they came back 3 more times and made 1/2 hearted and useless attempts to salvage the already ruined job. It is now 1 year later and the stain is peeling off the deck in sheets and our phone calls to request a rep come out and evaluate have gone un-answered. This company is a shoddy bunch of rip off artists. Don’t get taken for a ride like we did.
