This job took more than 10 hours. When it was completed, The wrong finish texture had been applied. I called Don immediately. He said it was too late to fix it, there was nothing they could do. He said I should be happy that I got the 'most popular' finish instead of the one that matched the rest of the house. Customer satisfaction does not seem to be a priority.

I have yet to receive a receipt. I ve ask the guy several times and nothing. How main guy was very rude.
Response by Don's Ceilings & Walls, Inc.: Mario, please give me a call. This is the first time I am seeing anything about this and my system shows that we have sent you a receipt and it has been delivered. Also, you never complained once about our work or the service. Please call me at 951-545-7856 so we can discuss and I can fix whatever is wrong. We guarantee our work 100% so there should be no issues with quality. If you've had an issue with my foreman, I need to hear from you so that I can correct it. Thank you, Mario.

To start on a positive note the initial conversation I had with Don was great. He walked me through the history of how people installed ceilings and the process used for various types of repair. I found the conversation fairly enjoyable and looked forward to working with his team. On the day of the job that communication style changed. It became confrontational and they changed the price we agreed the day their team arrived. He threatened to simply pull his team away from the job and not return my $200 deposit if I didn?t agree to the increased charge. The team were nice and polite but they left food and cigarette butts at my property which I thought was a little disrespectful. After the job was completed, it clearly didn?t look like a smooth beautiful cieling which I would show off to my friends (as Don has put it on the phone). When I called and asked about the quality it was met with a instant response of ?this is what it?s meant to look like? and there was an air of ?I know more than you?. I clearly wasn?t a happy customer throughout the process but at no point did Don really care about that fact. I ended up hiring another company that was a third of the price and the job needed up looking great. Wouldn?t hire or recommend myself.
Response by Don's Ceilings & Walls, Inc.: Tim, I am sorry about your frustration. We pride ourselves on fantastic work and guarantee our work 100%. You chose to book over the phone and told us the wrong type of construction for your home. Your home ended up having a type of popcorn ceiling that has to be completely plastered over before texturing. That is a much more expensive type of project to do. We were willing to accommodate and complete the extra work with the same deadline met, but there is extra material and labor to account for. We did not threaten to leave the project. If you did not want to pay for the extra work, we simply could not complete the job and would have needed to leave. Had we known in the first place that you had plaster acoustic ceilings, we would have given you that price up-front. You then complained to us that your ceilings were not smooth. We do not offer smooth finishes and it says so right on our website. We offer 3 textured finishes and we applied the Venetian Lace texture that you chose. I have it in my own home and it's very beautiful. You can't ignore the details we discuss and then setup expectations for a finish that we don't offer. Look on your contract, it says Venetian Lace textured finish and there are pictures of it on our website.

From Don Jr. To Tony and his men, they were very professional and prompt. My daughter will use them next year to remove the popcorn ceiling in her condo.

Don and his team made an excellent suggestion for a Venetian finish on the ceiling which turned out beautiful.

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)
