8th March 2012 Absolutely disgusted with the service I received. Led to believe on phone first call that painting would be included and believed due to 30% higher cost (as a promised "cash job") than Kowhai coatings; who I would have otherwise gone with. Damaged skirting paint and wood completely with sanding. Damaged ceiling itself with sander and scraper leaving gouges and holes. Left large amounts of ceiling texture exposed (asbestos stuff) in gaps where ceiling meets wall, which I had to seal myself. Left lights hanging out of ceiling for me to reattach (exposed LIVE wires and I'm no electrician). Charged $550 when Kowhai charges $388 for EXACT SAME JOB!!!! Contacted to discuss with this guy and was just told repeatedly I was "confused". What an insult. Emailed my concerns and had no reply. I had to spend a day and a half fixing up his rubbish effort. Again I am absolutely disgusted with this guy. This was my baby daughters bedroom which I emphasized emphatically and was ASSURED that there would be no texture stuff left at all.
