I found Texas Pro Painters on Craigslist. Jamie came to my house to make a bid and was very pleasant and helpful. He asked if he could bring his contractor over to go over my requests. The contractor came and he was nice as well and had decided that I would see what the bid is and then go with them.
A few days went by email and I texting Jamie to send me the bid. He finally sent the bid. The bid was not itemized and was very hard to read. I ask Jamie if I could do anything to lower the amounts and he said if you handle the trash and do you own painting. The bid was for only labor and was set up as a flat fee.
On the bid - Kitchen, 2 Bathrooms and painting of house. Removal of popcorn on Ceiling.
I asked Jamie to come over so we could set up some type of game plan and go over the bid. This was by text and email. He blow me off both time and said we can start on Monday. I again said lets talk on Monday.
The contractor and Jamie showed up on Monday August 27, 2012. I asked to get a game plan and they both push to start on the Kitchen and we will worry about the bath and other items on the bid later. Jamie leaves but not before asking for 25% of the bid by the end of the day. I was concerned but the work had started and I wanted to get this done. I have not seen Jamie since.
The kitchen was off to a good start and I thought that we were going to get this done quickly.The subcontractor of Jamie was the only person I ended up speaking with and once I finished paying for the main portion of the work the contractor started throwing in my face that is not part of the bid. I said fine I will do it myself and then he would get extremely upset and say that I done appreciate what he has done for me. Last week I called and spoke with Jamie about what the subcontractor was doing and he said that he couldn't understand why I kept asking him to do additional work. Which I replied I haven't been the subcontractor offered. I told him we keep arguing about money and he said that I should speak with him about that. I said great. That was the last time I was able to get him back on the phone.
Last week it rained so the subcontractor called me to get out of working. That has happened every week.
Monday September 17, 2012. Subcontractor shows up at my house at 11:15am. Has been complaining and unable to work because of his asthma. Walks into my house and begins to knock down the texture on the walls with no mask and no ventilation. He see that I had electrical work done and began to get upset. Than I showed him 3 different colors of paint and he said 3 paint well that is more work so that is a different price. I said that OK I will paint this one myself. He then gets very mad and says your doing it again. I said I do it myself. He begins to threaten me and say you keep that up and I will walk out on you. I look at him and say I apologize I didn't mean to offend you and I walk away.
A few minutes later he is packing up his truck with all his stuff and said I am done. I then beg him to come back because I have given him 4000 dollars and he is only half way through.He says I will come back tomorrow you just make me so mad and says why do you pay for others to do the work when I would have done it cheaper. I could have saved you money on the electric work that you had done. I said nothing but both Jamie and the subcontractor Buddy said he is not a electrician and is not licensed to do that. Buddy(subcontractor) said he had already talked to Jamie and knows what is going on. In the end said he would be back tomorrow. Only because I started to cry.
In the mean time I had already made several tries to get Jamie on the phone. I left him several messages, texts and an email to straighten things out. NOTHING BACK
September 18, 2012
The Subcontractor Buddy calls me at 8am to say he is to sick to come today but will be there tomorrow.
I on the other hand done want the harassment anymore and don't want to give him another dime.
I called and text to Jamie this afternoon to tell him I don't want Buddy to come back to my house.
He sends me a text that he will be there tomorrow. I told him no and then I get a call from Buddy telling me that it is all my fault and that he will be there tomorrow.
HE WILL NOT BE LET IN.
Lord please don't let him come.
