A-1 All Painting Reviews (1)
I hired Greg Davis, owner of A-1 Painting, to paint the exterior of my home. He quoted me $3400 and then gave me a proposal for $3700 with no explanation of the difference. This was after I told him I had a 10% coupon from the company he was referred from. He refused the coupon, yet took $500 off the new proposal. I was to pay $3,060 with the 10% coupon, yet he charged me $3200. When his crew was working on getting the house ready for painting, one of his crew members punched a hole through a water pipe. While this was unexpected, he advertised he was 'insured & bonded' therefore he should cover this expense through his insurance. Not the case. He expected me to wait 24 hours for his plumber to come out to the house to repair the damaged pipe. He expected my family and I to be without water for this duration. He complained about his profit going down when faced with this damage. He complained to me, his paying customer, about losing money. He stated to me, his customer, that he never submits anything to his insurance company or his bond. That is not MY choice, but his. He did not attempt to locate a plumber that could come out on short notice-I had to. He then pressured me into paying for half the cost of the repair ($500 total). This was highly offensive. I was left with no choice but to comply. After the painting was complete, I found numerous paint spills on the cement, on my BBQ, on planers; trash (water bottles, 5 hour energy bottles, cigarette butts) throughout the yard; my dog's water bowl was stolen by his crew (why?); my back porch light was not re-installed. He knew his crew broke a sprinkler head, yet did not offer to fix it. He knew his crew borrowed a brand new extension cord from me, I had to request it's return, and it was given back to me covered with paint. I gave Greg Davis the chance to do the right thing in regard to all of my issues. He contacted me only regarding the dog bowl and the back porch light. By then I had already paid for the replacement of both items.
