Ed gave the quote for 3 must-dos, including paint touch up, painting interior doors, replacing patio sliding door handle, and a few misc small repairs. He requested an up front deposit of $200 when giving the quote on a Sun, and promised the job would be complete by Wed or Thur the following week. The check was cashed out on Tue but nothing happened until a week later when I finally got ahold of him. He said he had family emergencies and I had to wait till the 2nd week after the meeting. I waited. The job dragged for 2 full weeks until I drove up there to meet him for final closure. The paint touch up effect was worse than before. He couldn't repair or replace the broken patio door lock without even telling me before I met him at the end. Yet he asked for more material money on top of demanding full payment of the quote! The reason was material cost was way more than he initially estimated, and he couldn't find the patio door handle but I still needed to pay. It was very frustrating and I was so tired at the end. I paid him in full though he didn't provide full services as he quoted, let alone satisfactory, and I lost precious 3 weeks. This was a very sad and bad experience for me.
