We didn't hire Michael Angelo Custom Painting directly. He was the paint and stains sub of the shady Contractor that we hired to remodel our house. Mike's crew was in charge of painting the interior and exterior of our house and staining our new kitchen cabinets. We had several issues with Mike and his crew and we're extremely disappointed with his unprofessionalism, lack of ethics, and poor workmanship. Mike and his painters acted like Chatty Cathys during the course of our remodel, many times offering unsolicited opinions regarding the paint color selections. Mike was not proactive and his negative attitude caused my husband and I a great deal of stress and anxiety. His crew left the job several times without locking up the house and even misplaced the keys once. Prior to painting the exterior, Mike failed to inform us about Sherwin William's ColorSnap Visualizer app, an app that allows you to preview the color prior to paint. My husband initially didn't like the color that I chose and we considered paying Mike to repaint the house (bet Mike was thinking cha ching $$$). My Daughter, suggested that we paint the stucco pop outs in white to break up the paint color and add contrast (which really saved our paint job and our money). When my Daughter texted Mike to get his thoughts, Mike replied "I don't think that will make a difference. Its not going to change the body color." This Debbie Downer sure knows how to rain on our parade. Mike took it upon himself to get involved in the dispute between the Contractor and my Daughter. Several times, Mike would say he didn't want to get involved, he just wants to do his job. Mike also said that he was going to do a good job no matter what. It turns out that not only does Mike like to gossip, he is also a dishonest person. Several weeks before Mike's crew was scheduled to complete their job, we reached out to him to request a walk through of his work. Mike responded "our walkthrough should be after every trade is done. We will do any touch ups then." In a later text, Mike replied "I want to wait on the inside until carpet is installed cause those guys usually scratch the baseboards and walls. We are probably going to have to touch up bathrooms and kitchen after tile as well." As of 11/15, the project was abandoned by the Contractor and his subs, including Michael Angelo Custom Painting. My daughter sent Mike several text messages requesting Mike to return to the job to complete/ correct his defective/ unfinished/ shoddy work and to give him an opportunity to make good on his word. To date, Mike has not completed a walk through and all text messages have gone unanswered. We received the unconditional waiver of release from Michael Angelo Custom Painting, which means he was paid in full for subpar work.
