We recently moved and gave this group an opportunity to paint our home. Unfortunately, it was below our expectations and wouldn't necessarily call them a group.
Based on the contractual commitment, which they did not abide by, they promised our home to be done in 3 days with their "crew". Just in time for us to move in. Unfortunately, they failed to deliver. To be technical on terms, their “crew” is basically a one-man show with a partner as their customer service representative.
The job exceeded their expectations and the offering of a discount wasn't offered when the job contract could not be met. That being said Basil promises he's "a man of his word" and would offer a bonus project to compensate. However he has not returned to complete the job as he's been bombarded with jobs outside the region. We've been waiting since September 14th.
That being said I could hire this group for a room or two but not a big project such as a full house. We're still finding errors in which we have corrected ourselves.
To be specific on how they did not meet our standards, initially, the entire house was painted incorrectly. We know this color like the bible considering we painted our past home this color and was so disappointed on our move in day, when it was quite off from the white we had chosen.
From there, every excuse was used in the book for not completing the job on time. From a funeral to being too tired to firing an employee. That being said we were understanding and gave the painter some time off to take care of himself and cope with his personal situation, however, we were a bit caught off guard when he came to collect his tools only to take care of another job offsite.
All in all don't be fooled by the contract and customer service representation. Over promised, under-delivered. If choosing this painter, be cautious.
My recommendation to this group is to stay local and keep the jobs small. Focus on what you're good at and don't bombard yourself with the unknown.
Good luck to you.
