House Painting, wall paper removal

My partner introduced me to Jack, as he had used him with good results. Needing painting at my former residence, I, too was happy with Jack's work (interior and exterior) so naturally I thought of Jack first to paint our new home. Jack assured me he would and could paint the entire house and remove wallpaper from one room to my satisfaction within the allotted time. Jack did a seemingly good job, painting large rooms on 3 floors . However after Jack left I noticed imperfections and a definite lack of attention to detail - walls, baseboards, trim and quarter round, unclean lines, paint splats on furnishing, ceiling and trim and oak, trim paint on walls and tile. While Jack did come back to re-paint and fix some minor work, it seemed he wanted to do the bare minimum and quickly leave. Jack's attitude surprised me, as a repeat customer. I've since hired another painter to re-do some of Jack's work. Jack did not meet my expectations. Disappointing experience.

House Painting, wall paper removal

My partner introduced me to Jack, as he had used him with great results. I was happy with Jack's work at my former residence (interior and exterior painting), so naturally I thought of Jack first for our new home. Jack did good job in the primary rooms of the three floors. Jack assured he would and could paint the entire house within the alotted time. Jack's broad work is good, however he lacks in attention to detail. As I walk throughout the rooms of my Home. I can't help but notice sloppy workmanship; single paint coats with previous paint colour bleeding through (did he use primer?), trim paint on wall and tile, wall paint splats on furnishings, quarter round and baseboards in need of a second coat. It's significant enough to bother me. Jack boasted of his ability to paint a straight line without the use of frog tape. He should consider the latter as the paint bled on the trim and his lines aren't consistent. While Jack did come back to re-paint and fix some issues, I got the sense Jack just wanted to do the bare minimum and leave. Very recently we needed more paint (same colour as previously used) for a small patch. With Jack's paint can in hand, our local Benjamin Moore retailer advised the paint colour ( supplied by Jack) was altered. I've since hired another painter to re-do some of Jack's work. Jack did not exceed my expectations.

House Painting, wall paper removal

I was happy with previous work by Jack at my former residence (interior and exterior painting), so naturally I thought of Jack first for our new home. Jack did good job in the primary rooms of the three floors, but lacked in attention to detail. Jack contacted me when he read my original HomeStars review to make good. While Jack did re-paint and fix some issues, I got the sense Jack just wanted to do the bare minimum and leave. Baseboards, quarter round, trim paint on tile and walls, spotty walls and ceilings.....Jack boasts he doesn't "need" to use frog tape . He should as the paint bled on the trim. Very recently we needed more paint (same colour as previously used) for a small patch. WIth Jack's paint can in hand, our local Benjamin Moore retailer advised the paint used by Jack was altered. Very disappointing. While Jack's broad painting is good, ours was not the best experience.

House Painting, wall paper removal

I hired Jack to paint my entire home a few months ago. I used Jack at my previous residence with no complaints. While I was reportedly unhappy with some of his work this time, Jack contacted me immediately to make good on my review. He went above and beyond to make me happy at no charge. Jack takes his work seriously and he takes reviews personally. Bottom line: once Jack realized there was a problem, he came immediately. Great service, great work Jack, thank you! Yes, I'd recommend Jack.
