I contracted with Dan to paint the interior of my new home. He did an outstanding job, and really struck a great balance between quality and value. Arrived early and finished project on deadline. It was easy to tell he took pride in

I feel E4 has a right to his opinion, but I feel it's very unfair to place his review in a starring position. It is one out of 7, the other six being favorable. You can add mine to the favorable side. Dan painted our living room

Dan showed up on time for the estimate. He showed up on time and did the work as promised in the time and for the price quoted. We would definitely use him again!!!

We have used Dan on several of our homes for over 20 years with outstanding outcomes. Dan always prides himself on attention to detail and like he said, "never askes for a deposit; pay if satisfied". What other company gives you this offer upfront? I would think he's out hundreds of dollars on paint he is using knowing his job will meet the customers satisfaction and he will be paid.

All in all,I think they did a pretty good job on the outside of our home. The clean-up could have been better,a few paint chips in the grass and one side of a gutter was missed, but I'm pretty satisfied with the work that was performed considering how the house use to look. I would use them again. Easy to work with and seemed to know what they were doing!

I just noticed rebuttals to my original review and wanted to question the three reviews that followed.

1) Dan claims 'everything in writing'. Excellent, maybe he has a new policy. Make sure you hold him to it.
2) Dan claims '5 year warranty'. He seems very proud of that, yet doesn't mention it in his ads. Make sure you get that in writing too.
3) Dan claims he never had 3 Mexican workers. Well he did when he came to our house. And in the review from 'lisa b.' you'll notice how she thanks Dan and Roberto. Roberto was the lead painter of the three that were at our house.
4) Dan claims I don't exist, or possibly that I have other motives to denigrate his work. I don't. Everything I wrote is true. Regardless, get whatever Dan promises in writing. Get him to write about his 5 year warranty, get him to spell out the prep work he will do, how long he will be at the job, if he alone will be doing the work, and if not, if he will be there the whole time supervising the work.
5) Note Dan's level of literacy. His post is riddled with spelling errors (not that that would make him a bad painter). But note how he uses 'to' instead of 'too', how he doesn't have an apostrophe in 'wont' and 'Ive'. Those same spelling errors, and others, appear in the two glowing reference posts immediately after Dan's. Coincidence? Maybe.

Business Response:

Hey, give me a call!!! Once again I find myself defending my company from a wana be "Sherlock Holmes"!! {Theres your apostrophe"s smart ass!!} A five year warranty is included with every contract, also a NO DEPOIST on every job, pay when job is completed and your satisfied WHICH is included with EVERY contract. AND I'm terribly sorry you dont like Mexicans, your life must be hell these days! Yes thats right, IF you are a real customer, which I highly doubt,give me a call{930-3088} and lets take care of whatever problem you might have. We stand by our work and if your not satisfied,give me a call and the problam will be addressed. Made this offer once before to you, but havent heard from you! Hmmm, wonder why??? Anyway, I have work to do, but first, let me run a spellcheck, ignorant painters!! Dan

Dan magee and company, wanted to thank you for a job well done! You painted the interior of our home back in January and was looking for your number to get a estamate for the exterior of our home and came across this website! Good thing I found you again! Anyway, was reading some of your reviews and read the one that wasnt to flattering so I thought I'd add my two cents worth!! I found my experience just the opposite. You showed up when you said you would,provided me with a written contract detailing all the work we discussed, and finished the job in a timely matter! You even put up with my wife changing the colors every day which would of made me{and did!} go crazy!!! Thanks for that, and sorry honey!! You treated my house and family with respect{waiting for the kids to get off to school before painting, thanks!!} When I informed you you forgot to paint the back of a closet door three days later,you were back the next day to do it,hard to find good service like that anymore, thank-you. We are very pleased with your work and looking forward to hearing from you to get a quote for outside. Thanks Dan. The Spencer family

Whoever wrote the above review , I sure would like to hear from them personally!! In my 25 years of painting, I have never had a complaint to the B.B.B., or the liscence board!! We take great pride in our work, everything is in writting,and a five year written warranty is given with ALL work!! I have hundreds of references of past customers who were completly satisfied and are re-peat customers! And by the way, Ive never had three "Mexicans" work for me!! If you trulley are a past customor, give me a call, and I will gladly take care of what ever problem you have, I stand by my work!! I'm pretty sure I wont be hearing from you because I dont believe you exsist, probaly a disgruntled painter with to much time on your hands! No one would ever pay for work as you describe! Like I said, give me a call ,or find something better to do with your time!! Thanks Dan Magee

I have only myself to blame. We needed to get the house painted and I went through the coupons that come in packets in the mail. Dan came to the house, seemed nice enough, whizzed through and gave us a reasonable quote. We agreed, without getting references. Bad, very bad.

Here are just some of the gory details, but the bottom line is that Dan was there for a few hours, the rest of his time was his three Mexican workers (I don't mean that in a racist way, I mean that two of them didn't speak English and the other tried not to, causing big communication problems). These three had only one goal in life, get it all done in two days (not the 3-4 that Dan promised) and get home for the weekend. Well they did that. The house hadn't been painted in all of its 25 years (yes, I know), so you'd think the walls would need rubbing down first. Or that the oil based doors and trim would need to be stripped first before applying the latex paint. Or that the peeling pebbledash bathroom paint would need to be rubbed off and resurfaced. Or that the big hole in the wall exposed when they removed some old trim (at my request) would need patching. But no, these guys went straight to work, no prep, no nothing except for rubbing down the really badly peeled paint in the bathroom (not all of the bathroom, just the badly peeling parts, leaving two different surfaces all over the room). The first day they had cloths down on the carpet, but soon enough they were stepping around that or removing it and walking all over our new carpet with their wet paint soled shoes. When it was all over they had painted over all of the door trim (no, they never removed any of it, nor taped over it), all over the window frames, all over the light fixtures, all over pretty much everything. The solution to the hole in the wall was to move one of our ornaments in front of it so we wouldn't notice. Seriously, if I knew they weren't going to prep (contrary to what it says in dear Dan's ad) or protect anything, I would have done the whole thing myself. A day later paint was peeling off of the trim. One angry call later Dan and one guy came back for a few hours and did some clean up, but it was clear they weren't ever going to put any real effort into it. We paid him just so I'd never have to see him again, and I spent the next few weeks cleaning up their mess.

His ad says he has a license, but when I looked that up later it says it's just him, it doesn't include his no doubt paid under the table 'workers'.

AVOID Dan like the plague, get it in writing (no, I was dumb enough to not even do that) exactly what prep work they are going to do, and how long they will be on the job. I've learned my lesson now, I hope this information helps you to avoid the same mistakes.
