I'm on (was on at the time too) SSD and the money I had was all the money I would ever have except for my small check once a month. My instincts told me this Mulholland guy was bad news especially when he refused to use the paint I wanted (I was intimidated) so I just let that go. He ruined my whole house and I too paid him up front. Over $3,000!! I was so explicit about my bedroom (especially my bed) only good thing I would ever own. He ruined it & covered it up long enough to disappear. Stay away from Joe Mulholland Painting/popcorn ceiling, he is a RIP OFF & as far as I'm concerned a criminal. Took all of my money. The most Lousy job of painting I've ever seen. People are shocked to see it!
Pete popcorned a few rooms for me. He was very sloppy and did the lousy job. I paid him in full and should have not paid him a dime. He left the place a mess. The popcorn ceiling is bleeding thru and I will not have him come back. I was told by someone else not use him and thought maybe it was just a sour customer. I made a big mistake using him.
