Painting. Not happy with the results from the company we hired. How picky are we being or is this just a terrible job?
We are having our house completely re painted, top to bottom, walls, ceilings, trim, window frames, kitchen cabinets, stairs along with some other stuff like removal of popcorn ceilings and installing pot lights
They almost finished painting one of our rooms today top to bottom except for the baseboard trim along the floor and the doors and one more coat of paint on the walls. My wife and I are looking at it and are not to happy. We just want to make sure we are not being to picky, We expect there will be some dripping but this seems excessive.
The project manager wasn't here to oversee but left his crew here to start painting.
-There is paint all over our shutters on every single one (8 shutters total)
-The paint on the window sills they are claiming is white, they just used the wrong finish. They will correct it tomorrow. It doesn't look white to me, especially when you see the paint on the shutters.
-There are lots of drips, not so much on the walls, the walls are ok with the exception of 2 spots where it looks like they forgot to sand after they fixed nicks in the wall but more so on the window frames. It also looks like the window frame was not sanded/prepped holes filled properly. The guy who did the window frames is not the same guy who did the walls, he came at the end to help out. The guy who did the window frames is the same guy who is about to paint our kitchen cupboards tomorrow. The doors are being spray painted but the frames are being painted by him. If you also look at the pics he also painted the hinges on the shutters, who does that? I am concerned about him painting the kitchen cupboards after seeing his trim job and painting the hinges.
The crown molding doesn't look white enough, it looks like they used the same paint as the window frames. It doesn't pop like a new painting job should. The doors, crown molding, trim and window frames are all supposed to be the same white
There is a lot of debris from the popcorn ceiling that has fallen into our hardwood cracks. They did have the area covered and it was covered well, is it just unavoidable or a result of a poor job of removing the tarping afterword.
Attached are the pics of the paint job. The very last pic is not our house but an example of the contrast we were expecting between the trim and the walls. The 2nd last pic is our old paint and trim where they have not touched yet in a different room.
Edit** We talked to the project manger and he is coming over tomorrow to look at it and told us not to worry, everything will be fixed so we are happy. He is telling us that the frames are painted white, it was just the wrong finish and that they need another coat but if we are not happy he will correct it. He said the shutters should have been tarped off he's not sure why they were not. In regards to the drips he will check those tomorrow
