I have never been so disappointed in the integrity of a person. Joel had "one hour" left on our deck and I had a meeting so went ahead and paid the remaining balance (I know, dumb!). He didn't finish, cashed our check, and now 4 weeks later has never returned to finish the job despite repeated text messages that he was coming back. The sad thing is he did a good job but he will never get a recommendation from me and I will tell everyone I know to never hire him. So unfortunate.

The painting job started in October 2018 and has still yet to be finished. The wood rot was never taken care of. Joel was full of excuses from the start, but always talked a good talk. The work he did was shoddy...the caulking looks like 5-year-olds did it and the exterior paint is uneven. Lots of overspray and entire sections of the house were missed, More then half the bill has been paid, largely because he gave us a sob story about paying his guys right before Thanksgiving. After that, the only time we saw him was when he came to pick up his ladders when the ground thawed in the spring (the ladders were left to freeze to the ground in my back yard over the winter). He came over in April to do a walk around and said he would begin finishing the work the next day. I have not heard from or seen him since, and he is ignoring phone calls and text messages. We would strongly recommend never using Joel Stephens for ANY service.

A Splash of Color was hired by my general contractor to paint my new house. I should have known when my first interaction with him was when he showed up the first time to paint at 8:30 at night. I told him I almost called the police on him and he told me it was OK he knew all the police in town, should have been my first clue this wasn't going to go well. He wouldn't show up when he said he would, he was all full of excuses as to why he couldn't come. My favorite excuse was when he tried to tell me he got a total of 7 nails in all four tires after driving in my driveway and parking where I usually park. One may have been believable, but a total of 7 in all four, come on. His work was terrible, he had to come back several times to try to fix his mistakes- they usually ended up worse after he fixed them. I am attaching pictures of just one door in my house- this is just a sample of how bad my new house looks. My husband at one point took the brush from his hand and fixed some drips that Joel "couldn't see" and told him he could leave now. I now have a brand new house that I am going to have to repaint because the job is so terrible, my advice is to stay away!!

Hahaha nobody really uses Angie's list anymore just happened to see you tried ruining me here too. Never once had a job from Angie's list but once again thanks to your nasty reviews I got one from Angie's list thanks to your review. Message straight from customer on here below. logo Business List F1 Reviews A Splash of Color LLC SPID: 9346199 [Member Information Removed] Home Leads Messages Reviews Profile [Member Name Removed] This is the beginning of your conversation Monday, Oct 22, 2018 Hello, I Am [Member Name Removed] and I'm in need of your services in my new apartment, I see the crazy lady's review she sounds like a real character. I'm not worried about the review I've heard great things about you. If you would please kindly email me at Are you kidding me? Your husband never once took the brush out of my hands. I can guarantee that wouldnt happen. The drips you are referring to that I supposedly couldn't see were glue from another trade which I have pictures of and your husband clearly knows because I sanded them down and showed him. I had to come back several times really like to clean the tile guys grout off of the trim that you thought was a paint issue or to fix where you damaged the walls multiple times moving in or the hairspray you got all over the walls. Not to mention the substandard materials that were used building your house i was expected to fix or cleaning up the texture all over the walls and trim or cleaning the d*** house up because the rough in crew left their scraps laying everywhere . Or to fix other issues created by you for example the pictures you posted of the door where you shut them while they were still wet because you are trying to move in during the construction phase of a new home before its finished and they dried together and the paint peeled when opened. Then you want to insinuate I have issues with the police. Well just so you know I grew up next door to several of the top police officers in this town and am friends with them which I told you that night. By the way 830 at night is not uncommon time to work on a construction site what is camping there and coming in with a dirty great dane shedding everywhere while the house is being painted.. You were by far the worst customer I have ever done work for and I can get every contractor and your builder to vouch for me. They all dreaded working there. I tried very hard to please you and you know I worked with you. Also so you know none of my reviews are from friends or family I didnt even know this existed until Google called me and said someone that seems to be slightly crazy and bitter left you a bad review were you aware of this. No ma'am I wasnt but I bet I know who it was guess what I was right. And by trying to give me a bad name my customers think you are looney and said wow one negative review in 10 years that's amazing. Also if youd like I can attach the message I sent you the day I got a bunch of flats from your place with a receipt for four new tires dates matching and the reason they were replaced. Not to mention all the dog hair I had to work around. Your own husband told your builder that you were going overboard and that he'd try to keep you under control. Seriously making the tile company replace any tile that was off by the thickness of a credit card come on now. By the way I didnt get paid to do your stairs that you are throwing a fit about they were not in my contract i did them to be nice. Sorry you are so hard to please thanks for the review it helped my algorithms and I have been getting more calls than ever from Google thanks to your recent review much appreciated
