Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
Hired them to remove wallpaper, apply texture and paint 3 rooms. In addition, I wanted a hole behind my thermostat patched. CertaPro hires outside contractors to do the work. I was told 2 days to complete the job which took over 4 days. I was present for first 2 days and then arranged to have a neighbor let them in on day 3 since I travel for a living. Upon returning ,the job was still not finished and the work completed was done poorly. I could still see several wallpaper seams through the new texture. The texture was not uniformly applied with approximately a 4 inch strip of little to no texture around the doors and shower tile. They got a splash of primer on an adjacent wall and just painted over the splash leaving a noticeable patch. A small hole was fixed at the thermostat but not the one I asked to be repaired and they painted around the thermostat which left an approximately 6" strip all around the thermostat of a different color paint which sticks put like a sore thumb. In addition, the floors of the rooms were a mess with wallpaper scraps everywhere. I sent an email to CertaPro expressing my concerns and since I did not return until Friday evening after hours, asked him to call me Monday to schedule a walkthrough and expressing my displeasure with the quality of the work. I never heard from CertaPro. The independent painter called me to explain the work was not completed. I walked him through the project. He stated the he was instructed to only paint around the thermostat which would be noticeable. They had not budgeted to paint the entire wall. He agreed to fix the wallpaper seams. They did cover the splash of primer on the adjacent wall with paint again which is still very noticeable. One of the wallpaper seams is still noticeable even after a second try. At this point I will hire another company to repaint the 2 walls and fix the hole behind the thermostat. I am still touching up around the doors and where the walls meet the ceilings. The painter was very nice but needs experience and training.

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
The painting crew boss talked me out of my initial paint color decision and once the trim paint was applied I did not like it at all. I went back to the color I picked but had to purchase (at an additional expense) 2 gallons of enamel and was charged extra for repainting a bookcase. Painter Jose is a very hard worker and did an excellent job.

They painted over the entire backyard water faucet. They, inexplicably, dumped paint in the front water gauge box and didn't caulk in places they didn't think I'd notice. They also replaced some wood but I paid almost $4,000. Not a good value at all.
Response by CertaPro Painters: We're sorry John feels we didn't deliver a good value. His home had a very large amount of painted wood surface that was peeling and flaking and badly needed some TLC and fresh paint. We delivered a beautiful result.

Review by in Dallas, TX
Initial consultation was impressive and believed that CertaPro Painters were very professional. Was told that I would have the best crew to paint the outside of my house. Crew did not show up. Another "best" crew was assigned. I was under the impression that CertaPro Painters had their own painters as employees but found out that the painters are sub-contractors. The painters were suppose to prep areas and lightly sand before painting. The couple of areas that needed extra wood repair work were not completely finished to satisfaction. It took extra time and trips to my house to complete the job. There were areas that were not sanded properly and other areas where there were stripes from the paint not being applied properly. A tree next to my house was damaged during the painting process. Even though the salespeople were nice, I found that the follow up correcting the painters mistakes caused hassles for both the CertaPro Painting Salesperson and myself. handled as it should have been.
Response by CertaPro Painters: We were surprised to see this review pop up since the project was completed over nine months ago. The end result was beautiful and the customer was happy. We're always upset when a customer surprises us and posts a less than stellar review. If a misunderstanding occurs, we take it to heart and try to learn from it. They can result from poor communication or from poor listening or a combination of both. We never misrepresent our process or our business model and did not do so in this case. Unfortunately, we've learned that sometimes a customer will hear what they want to hear and not what we actually say. When this happens, we realize that we haven't communicated clearly enough and we strive to improve.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate.
