Before hiring Anthony, my husband told him we were in a pinch trying to get our house up for sale and he said he would have the job done in "3-4 days" by "bringing out a crew" and working full time on it. Two weeks later the job still wasn't finished and Anthony blamed us, saying that if he had bid the job higher, he would be spending more time on it. He had given us a bid and we had accepted--at no point had we done anything at all to manipulate him into quoting a lower price. All attempted discussions on getting the job done in the timely fashion he had initially promised were met with excuses and a generally slippery conversational style on his part. Specifics of his work: Applying semi-transparent stain to decks and stairs: very good job. Second coat of paint to exterior windows: very good job. We only saw this particular worker one day. Sanding of the mildewed window frame: very good job. We only saw this particular worker one day. Filling two squirrel-size-entry-way exterior foundation holes: Concrete dribbles were left all over our driveway and our natural stone walkway from the concrete job. They left what seemed like a huge glob of concrete outside the holes as though they had mixed too much and wanted to use it. One of the globs is the size of a very small watermelon. The mailbox was installed well, and the numbers put on in the correct sequence on both sides of the mailbox, as requested by us. Exterior door staining: Were done by different workers--one is excellent. The other has several dribbles, as well as a long dribble on the glass that was left for us to remove. The worker who stained the front door we only saw one day. Interior wall paint job: unsatisfactory. Anthony did this job himself. One long strip of painter's tape had been applied at an angle, rather than straight, with a foot or so of it being at least 3/8 inch away from the surface to be protected, so now part of the natural wood door frame is painted. He left paint dribbles down the wall, which of course dried into lumps. At one point near the closet door frame, his brush slipped, for I saw a streak of paint going over the blue painter's tape and then onto the natural wood door frame. One can easily wipe off such paint accidents with a rag; he didn't bother. The ceiling / wall cut is probably better than I could have done, but is amateurish when compared with the quality of other rooms in our house that were painted by handymen. The dry wall cracks probably would have been repaired well, except for the fact we let Anthony go (after many talks about the time he was spending on the job as compared with his promise he made in order to get the job) so that we could hire somebody who got the job finished in a timely fashion. Each day after Anthony would work for us, we would pick up a few cigarette butts on the driveway and grounds--nobody we know smokes cigarettes. Perhaps it's nit-picking on my part, but I question his stated green principles based on two things. The first is that he dropped his butts on the ground and driveway. The second is the fact that he and / or his worker left plastic water bottles in our trash can, rather saving then for recycling, or at least asking us if we recycle before they dropped them in the trash.
