Watch out for Tracy Smart from Smart Painting

Seemed like a good price, used good paint (Sherwin Williams Sherlastic), nice guy, local guy, local crew, and the work they did on my neighbor’s house looked pretty good. Boy was I wrong, showed up with no paint wanting cash, used cheaper paint than I was sold, rushed the job, left parts of my house half painted and flawed, now he won’t return my calls.

If your paths cross with this guy or his crew PM me for the details – stay away!

    The previously unagreed on, surprise "request for cash" is always a big red flag. Thanks for the warning.

    Sounds like he is subbing his work out. That's why I never use subs because I can't Controll them.
    Hope you find him

    Well, he IS subbing but to his brother or cousin or something. The issue was that they were all out of work and I guess they’re back to work now. We’ve been talking for 2-3 months now trying to schedule him over but with the weather, holidays, and my travel it was tough. I can accept that, what I can’t accept is him not returning my calls for 3-4 weeks now. It sucks because he seems like a straight up guy and I absolutely hate being let down after trusting people. He even offered to repaint my trim with the right paint so I have 3 gal of paint sitting in my garage... guess I'll be doing it myself.

    Thank god for JCC… you guys always OVER deliver!!!!
