I had found MyPayless Painters on craigslist through the household section and decided to give them a try. Having spent a great deal of prep time on the drywall, I just couldn't motivate myself to actually do the painting. That being said: the two foremen (Foreman #1 and Jose) showed up with a crew the same day and did an AWESOME job. The one foreman (not Jose) was very concerned with my happiness and went above and beyond my expectations.
Fast forward 2 months later: I had spent a GREAT deal of time and money in remodeling a bathroom. All that was left was a skim coat of drywall and paint. I had the estimator come back (foreman #1) and communicated this to him as best I could (he did not speak very good english). Days later, the company owner (Jose) showed up and started work on my bathroom. Hours later, it was a mess. The wall was extremely lumpy (he did no sanding of his wall patches) and it looked like hell. I had him re-do the wall. Upon a second attempt the wall looked better, but still was not sanded OR flat. He then said he had to get going because traffic was going to be bad. I had to cut my losses and later had to bring in a REAL painter/drywall specialist to fix the bathroom.
That was not the end of my nightmare. Jose managed to get paint all over my brand new tub (textured bottom), paint on the tiles, spackle in my newly plumbed drains. He then used my utility sink to clean his paint supplies and left paint all over the sink and my floors. None of this was cleaned up and was left for me to clean.
I lucked out the first time, but I warn any consumer or craigslist user to think twice before hiring this crew.
