We would not use Brad again. He did work for me 3 times in the past and his work was decent and timely. Now he is no longer focused on painting, he's distracted.
My 73 yr old mother was looking for a home reno prior to moving into her seniors community. I recommended Brad and helped him secure the contract. He completed the first round of paining in mid-January and said he would come back for touch ups. My mother called him for touch ups and he didn't return her calls, he scheduled and cancelled, and once again didn't return her calls. I emailed him 4 times and texted 6 times. He told me someone else would finish the work. No one called. THIS WAS 7 MONTHS OF TRYING TO GET TOUCH UPS DONE.
In the end, I spent 10 hours of my weekend, completing his touch-ups, telling my Mom that the painters had done it, because I had vouched for him. He texted later to say he could do it the following week. After 7 months of asking and avoiding communications, I wasn't convinced. If you choose him, don't pay him until the work is done.
It's a shame, I gave him so many opportunities to complete his work. Truly disappointed but a life lesson. Don't pay everything until the work is complete.
