Basement

So we hire Rica to plaster some parts of our basement and paint. We told him we wanted white paint. We don’t know anything about paint. He told us about some kind of Color and said it’s white so we went along. He showed up the first day but was outside on his phone for almost the entire day. He did some of the plaster and left at 6pm. The next day he showed up with a guy and said he brought help. He then kept leaving the guy and going outside. He then told us he cannot finished the job in 2 days as was agree in that he needs one more day. The next day the guy showed up and no Rica I went down and asked the guy where is Rica only to be told that he is no coming that he is not feeling well. A few hours later I heard the subcontractor very loud on the phone. He then came up and asked me if we are related to Rica that Rica said we are friends and he is doing us a favour and that Rica refused to pay him. I told the sub contractor that we don’t know him we just hired home for the job. I was very upset and angry that when Arica showed up I told to go way. He told I have to pay him I told you have finished my job. Anyway he he did whatever and came and said he was finished. He asked to go check I was so upset and wanted him out that I just looked around not in detail and said okay. BUT THE BASEMENT COLOUR Was NOT WHITE WE CAN STILL SEE THE GREEN. When I told he said that is the colour we chose and if I want because of all the issues we had he will but white paint and do it back. At the time I was upset so I said no. But now we decided we want it to be done properly but whenever we called him he give us different excuses. He even hang up on my husband. Is sub contractor that he bought into our home is calling and threatening us about coming and damage our basement wall and that we have to pay him.
Our experience with him was very scary . They left so much mess and even damaged our treadmill mats. Even promised to replace it and still waiting for that too.
I don’t think anyone should take him. I have pictures

We decided to clean up since we realized that Rica is not going to come and finish the painting. We discovered that he didnt even paint it was Primer in the Bucket and not paint. So we paid him just to plaster and prime our basement.
He took our hard earn money and didnt do a good job.
He will never ever enjoy that money.

I have a picture of the Buckets

Deck staining

I Hired Rica to do a stain job on my Balcony. Not only did he stain the stucco on my house but he left a mess on my balcony and he overcharged me as well. Not someone that I would recommend at all. After letting him know I was not happy he proceeded to text me using foul language

Restoration of walls and ceilings in an old home

Rica and his team transformed our home's walls and ceilings from cracks, holes and crumbling plaster that was wallpapered over to beautiful smooth walls with their expertise and with the help of plaster, drywall and paint. Thank you Rica ! the difference is amazing and what we had hoped for.

Rica’s Painting - basement renovation

Rica’s painting finished our unfinished basement in our new town home. We are incredibly satisfied with the results of the service. They finished the walls, installed new floors, dry-walled and painted. They helped turn our house into a home and we couldn’t be happier. Thank you Rica’s painting!

Living Room Reno.

Riky and his team's level of craftsmanship was extraordinarily high. He completed the reno. project on time and within budget. I've utilized many subcontractors for past home projects, but his quality of work, pricing, and turnaround time truly exceeded my expectations.

Do not recommend

I really can not comment on the quality of work because he did NOT do anything. He only took the $2,000 deposit (1/3). but never showed up to do the work. So, he ripped us off. Luckily for us, sub-contractors came knocking on our door looking for him as he owed them money so we dealt with the sub-contractors.

This review is defamatory and completely false. I'd like to challenge this publisher to provide any evidence this scenario ever happened. Unfortunately in the construction business, there is not much integrity in between contractors. Sub contractors who are given the fair opportunity to work alongside the company steal jobs and clients before we have been given the respect to even intervene. This is an undignified act agreed upon by the client who was stolen from us, and the contractor who has taken the job, and doesn't reflect on the company at all. Please make sure that when you contact Rica's Painting that you execute the job with Rica's Painting and don't pay a sub contractor who has stolen the work and funds from our company.

Repair, replace drywall around new fireplace and paint basement

Really fast response from Rica's Painting after posting it on Homestar. He came by and gave a very reasonable quote and time frame and was prepared to start soon. After living with this unstated project for a while I was interested in getting it going -and his ability to start soon was a good thing.

Rica and his brother Alex showed up exactly when they said they would and got things going. There was a minor mixup on the required dimensions (not entirely their fault) and when we had to make a change, it was obvious they were committed to getting it right and making sure we were happy.

The work they did and their attitude made it a pleasure to work with them and I expanded the job to do the painting too (I was previously going to do it myself) and will also be calling them back to paint another room soon.
