Most of these reviews seem to be pretty accurate when they say HORRIBLE AND STAY FAR AWAY. This company is a total scam, they did not show up at times they were supposed, would start and never finish then after 1 week and showing up only

Horrible, horrible, horrible. Paid in advance through Twongo, and now they don't show when scheduled, don't answer their phone. Finally reached on the phone and said they'd be out 3-4 hours late the day scheduld, never showed. Now

DO NOT use these folks. We paid for their service through a Twongo deal. They took our payment without any problem. They didn't show up to paint even though they emailed a confirmation.\r

Now they will not return our calls or emails

It was difficult to communicate with 2 painters who do not speak english. I had a Twongo deal, 8 hours of painting. I told the woman it was a bathroom with 3 cathedral walls and that was all I needed painted. I had put 2 coats on the walls I could reach and the water closet walls (where the toilet is). I explained this to the 2 painters. 1 worked while the other stood around and because 2 came, I only got 4 hours worth of painting. It would have been fine if they BOTH worked on what they were supposed to. They repainted what I already painted and I had to tell them 3 times to do the tall walls!!! I had to babysit! They had time left and had other things they could paint (like the trim!), but they left. They did do an ok job, I did have to have a few areas repainted. but I am glad I didn't pay full price, ...would NEVER be worth it.

Brad, the owner, is a great salesman. Too bad what he promised was no where near the real outcome. Professional on-site supervision is promised on every job - - that NEVER happened. When the "crew" did show up, (they were 2 hours late on the first day) no one could speak English and this made explaining what needed to be done pretty challenging. Brad said someone who was fluent in English would always be on the job - - not true. The work on my deck is 9 months old, the replaced boards are already warped and look worse then they did before they were replaced. The quality of the work was very poor. I would try and get my money back or repairs made; but, then I would have to deal with First Aid Painting again! - - and it's just not worth it. The owner of First Aid should go sell used cars, think it would be fitting.

Pros: None

Cons: what is promised is NOT delivered, poor workmanship

Most of the reviews here seem positive. I wish mine were. After getting estimates for repair and painting, the work was contracted out. An repair involving a window turned out to be much easier to fix than was expected yet I still got charged for the higher amount even when they admitted the fact. We found some more damage to the wood around our house as they were painting and try to communicate the need to repair it - all they did was dab some more paint on. I had to hire someone to blast the concrete & brick around my house to remove dripped paint. I don't know what these other folks experience with Brad really were but I could not get him to speak to me directly once the contract was signed. Horrible experience. I am sorry for folks that they are still in business and don't know.

We were extremely happy with the exterior paint job on our home. It was certainly a great value. I noticed a few points where the paint had chipped. I would have taken care of it myself except they were in hard to reach areas. I called First Aid and was told we were under warranty and that someone would be out to take care of it. I met with the painter and showed him what needed to be done. He was very detailed and completed the job to our satisfaction. You can tell quite a bit about a business when they are approached with a warranty issue. Let's face it-once the check is cashed on the initial work you may get a poor response. Not at First Aid! They did a great job and stood behind their work. Great work at a fair price.

Pros: Great communication and service

.

To all who want great service at a fair price:

We have used First Aid Painting on three occasions in the past 6 years.

The first was to paint the exterior of our home. The crew was very respectful and would not leave until we inspected everything and gave our approval.

Secondly, they painted 70% of the interior of our house...great room, two story foyer, vaulted ceilings, etc. and did an excellent job. The first day there were four people doing all of the drywall and spackling. The next two days there were five people painting. We were happy to get 14 days worth of work done for only 3 days of inconvienience.

Finally, we had some flood damage from our upstairs water heater. Once the restoration company dried us out, we requested first aid Painting to come to the rescue. They patched and painted the 10x10 hole in our ceiling in record time.

We will keep referring Brad and his company. They really do great work, arrive on time and ask for the customers total satisfaction before leaving the job.

Pros: Excellent service; great follow through

The initial impression of the company was so misleading. Brad came out to present an estimate, which seemed reasonable. His website and printed estimate gave the appearance of a professional and reliable company. This was definitely NOT the case.

We contracted with First Aid Painting to do extensive repairs and painting on the exterior of our home. We had a date scheduled for pressure-washing on a Saturday, with the repairs and painting to begin on Monday. Prior to that, we requested a test patch of the colors we chose. On the day the workers were supposed to do the test patch, they simply began to pressure-wash. They left without applying the paint test. When I called the owner, he said there had been a "miscommunication" with his crew.

The washing job was pathetic!!! We had to have them come out two more times to prep the house, because they missed so many obvious areas of mildew and grime.

The carpentry skills were also lacking. PVC trim that was installed around a door was so beaten up by the way they hammered in the nails that we demanded it be replaced. Wood rot that should have been noticed and brought to our attention for approval to be replaced was simply ignored. We pointed it out and requested that it be repaired. Their solution? Slap some putty over the rotting wood. Pressed board that was replaced with HardiPlank was installed unevenly and was corrected only after we pointed it out.

Communication was also a hassle due to the fact that not one of the crew spoke enough English. This was something that we specifically asked Brad about in an email prior to work starting. He simply ignored our concerns.

To sum up, we recommend to anyone considering this company to think long and hard before signing a contract.

I recently had the entire exterior of my house painted by First Aid Painting. After receiving no less than 15 quotes from painters throughout Raleigh I decided to have First Aid do the job. The experience was terrific from start to finish. From the beginning Brad, the owner, came to my house personally and gave me a very detailed quote for the scope of work I was asking him to do. He also supplied letters from happy customers. Throughout the job communication was great, which is amazing considering I tend to have tons of questions. Brad and Joanna were always there to deal with all my questions.

The quote clearly laid out the entire process of the job, and what exactly would be done. The price provided was extremely good considering the scope of work (Painting existing white trim and changing the color of the house all with top shelf Sherwin Williams Duration paint).

I am a self-proclaimed perfectionist with painfully high standards, and I couldn??t be happier with the painting. I have recommended First Aid Painting to everyone that I can think of, and have even recently got another quote from First Aid to paint my 25?? ceilings on the interior of my house. I look forward to working with Brad and First Aid in the future.

Pros: Terrific Service, Materials, and Workmanship

We used First Aid Painting last year to paint the outside of our house. The owner came to look over the house and give the estimate, which we thought was reasonable. He told us that he personally supervised the work, which ended up not being the case at all. We only saw him one time after that, which was at the end of the job.
The painting job itself was very sloppy. The owner had said that they would caulk all the gaps very cleanly on the outside, which was not done. We had to call several times AFTER the job was, supposedly, finished....and ask that several things be painted, as they had clearly been missed. The owner gave us attitude/wouldn't call back, and then finally sent two people out to paint the remainder (of what they had missed) WHILE IT WAS RAINING! We were livid.

I would not recommend this company to anyone! Save yourself the money and trouble.

Quality of service was very disappointing. Estimate looked great. Price was right and proposal was detailed. Job took longer then expected while the weather was perfect. Sloppy work. Waste of money. Would not recommend them at all. Poor job!

I cannot in good conscience recommend this company. I contracted with them to paint my house, and it was a total nightmare from start to finish. For starters, the owner told us that he personally supervised the work. We specifically asked this when he came to give an estimate because we are paying not only for the paint but for a well-manged project. However this was NOT the case. The only time I saw him after the estimate was for 10 minutes on the day the painters arrived, and he probably only made an appearance then because we had threatened to fire him!

It went downhill from there. No one showed up when they were supposed to show up. We had reschedule after reschedule, and always for a variety of reasons, the only one with any merit being weather. Secondly, the job wasn't done according to specification. The pressure washers were supposed to use their own water, but they tapped my outside faucets and depleted my well. Finally, the owner/"supervisor" seemed oblivious about everything. He would call and say he couldn't paint due to weather, but the fact was that he couldn't paint due to the pressure washing not being completed. He didn't know that until we told him, and his call came BEFORE the pressure washing had been completed. The nail in the coffin was that I asked to see the paint on the day they finally showed up, and he informed me that he was using a different type of paint but didn't have it with him. It still had to be purchased. So, add in last-minute paint substitutions without client consent, and you get one horrible experience.

The estimate looked good, as did the letters from previous happy customers in the portfolio he presented. This proves that you can't always trust those things because people aren't going to give you references from unhappy clients. Don't be fooled by this. Avoid this company unless you want to pay a lot of money to supervise painting and pressure washing crews yourself.
