DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The job was to replace all the rotted and weak wood siding, which covered about 2/3's of the house. Along with replacing the siding, all of the trim was to be scraped with deep mars being filled with (I asked for wood putty but, they used some) plastic filler. The windows were to be reglazed (the old cracked putty holding in the window panes was to be removed and replaced) and painted, the front porch iron railing was to be removed and replaced with an old wooden railing found on the property. The concrete porch was to be painted with paint specifically for applying to concrete so it would not peel and the concrete at the base of the house was to be painter also. They told me they would caulk all the gaps, cover any nail holes and fill and smooth major imperfections. They said, when the job was done that I would be proud of the way my house looks. All the leftover wood, all nails, any debris and all of the cigarette butts (they all smoke) would be picked up and the lawn would be clean. When I explained the job to Lewis Painting, I was given an estimate of $8000 to $9000. Later, when I was given the written fee of $9500, I asked what happened to 8 to 9 K. At the blink of an eye, the price was lowered to $8200. A $1300 instant reduction was quite a change. I wondered if the $9500 price was padded or if the $8200 price meant the job would be hurried and inferior. I did not want them to feel like they were working cheap and possibly compromise quality so I told them $9000 would be satisfactory. Later, when I saw that they were using oil based paint for primer coat and that all the painting was being done with a brush, I was impressed. I told Lewis Painting that I would give them the $9500 in the original contract. A few days later when the house had the new color and I saw how nice the house could look, I told them that I'd give them an additional $500, a total of $10,000, if they took extra time to make sure house was really carefully done. Than, when I saw the newly painted siding next to the old siding, even though the old siding was solid, it just did not look good next to the new. So, I told them that I would give them an additional $3000 if they would replace all the old siding. They agreed and the fee was increased to $13000.

SERVICE PROVIDER RESPONSEWith only 10,000 words allowed this will be hard. First let me correct the member in saying that the original consultation was for Lewis painting to pressure wash, scrape, sand, replace a few boards of siding here and there, and then apply 1 coat of oil based primer and 2 coats of latex exterior paint (Benjamin Moore). Everything else was added as extras and mostly free of charge. This includes Pa...
