I needed the aluminum siding around my 2nd level window and eaves painted. After not showing up for the estimate, I decided to give a college kid a break - that lead to a horribly frustrating experience.
The paint job is okay - a bit rushed and a section missed - but it's done. I agreed to a quotation that included the use of a harness, that they didn't use making the estimate unreasonable. They weren't proactive in communicating anything about the job - when, what time, etc. I was constantly chasing. When they finalized a date, they were 4 hours late (2.5 hours if you go by the time the painter showed up - the supervisor with the equipment was 4 hours late). I had to leave before they were finished and the supervisor asked if he could pick up a cheque the next day - yet again, he didn't show up and there was no communication.
