Very poor quality, workmanship and attitude
Darlcom breached contract, failed to perform, walked off the job, did defective work, used different materials than promised, and misrepresented the work and their ability resulting in considerable damage. Steven Darling negotiated the an estimate of $7500 for paint job; two days later his father Keith showed up and added $5000 to the original estimate. Our painting contract specified in the contract that all wood be scraped, sanded and primed prior to applying 2 coats of paint. Darlcom failed to sand surfaces resulting in trim work having to be redone. Darlcom did not prime any wood, instead claimed the primer in the paint was enough. All carpentry repair is having to be redone as Darlcom failed to follow contract and use pressure treated wood. They continuously lied about it when asked about poor prep and appearance wood painting, Keith told us it would be 50% more money for them to sand the wood. Keith Darling repeatedly misrepresented the work and the materials used. Keith Darling reeked of booze, others on the crew were obviously high, and they walked off the job twice, whenever their work was questioned. They got advance 50% for painting work of which only a fraction has been done and that is subpar. Keith and his son Steven have been extremely aggressive bullying us to pay more upfront, without the quality work. Then billed me for wrong materials and deficient work that needs to be redone. These losers didn't even scrape away old bees hives inside storm windows before slapping paint on. We are lucky to cut our losses.
