Kaylor Painting4500 E. 135th Avenue Anchorage, Alaska United States of America
One week after the Sherwin Williams visit, the painters came back and did additional repainting to finish the job. Final payment was made on August 29, 2011 because the paint job looked acceptable on the day of completion. By September (heavy rains) and October (cold weather) of 2011, extensive blistering, peeling, and cracking began to appear. At that time, it was too late in the Alaska painting season to do anything. Problems became more pronounced during the winter and into the spring of 2012.
On April 13, 2012, I sent an email to Mr. Kaylor concerning the extensive blistering and peeling. In a subsequent phone conversation, he promised to come up to my house after the snow had melted. He promised to take care of any issues. Mr. Kaylor even said that when I see how well he stands by his work that I should write a letter of recommendation.
On May 23, 2012, Mr. Kaylor and a Sherwin Williams representative jointly inspected my house. The Sherwin Williams official emphatically stated that the extensive peeling, blistering, and cracking was not due to paint failure. (Same conclusion Sherwin Williams reached on August 22, 2011.) The Sherwin Williams official added that Duration paint has been very successfully used on thousands of cedar sided homes. Mr. Kaylor assured me that he stood by his five year warranty and would fix all of the problems, including the decks which are normally not part of the warranty. Mr. Kaylor said he would repaint the problem areas in 3-4 weeks. He also stated that he would come back every year and do touch ups, if required, for the full five years of the warranty period. As a courtesy, the Sherwin Williams official agreed to provide all of the paint required at no cost.
On June 28, 2012, Mr. Kaylor delivered 15 gallons of Sherwin Williams Duration paint to my house. Mr. Kaylor was accompanied by one of his top painters. Based on the May 23, 2012 inspection of my house, I was expecting a thorough assessment of the repair work required and a scheduled completion date. I was shocked when he tried to leave after dropping off the paint in my driveway. When I asked when they were coming back to paint, the reply I got was maybe next year. When I stated that was unacceptable, Mr. Kaylor got within several inches of my face and repeatedly screamed your house has cancer. That was the last I heard from him. The obvious conclusion is that he has no intention of doing any further work on my house. Also, by dropping off the paint and leaving, Mr. Kaylor was probably counting on me doing the extensive repair work myself, or hiring another contractor, thereby voiding Mr. Kaylors five year warranty and absolving himself of all responsibility.
