Stay Away!, 11/30/2014

We had our home painted by Grade A Painting last summer and although the work was satisfactory, we found Dustin to be very dishonest, especially towards his painting crew. After the job was complete,... the crew came back to our home and stated that Dustin never paid them for the hard work they did painting the exterior of our 2 story home in July. We contacted Dustin and advised him that we would not be paying the remaining balance until he had paid his crew. After several attempts to meet him and finalize the payments to his crew and give him our final payment, he never showed up or contacted us. As a few other reviews have stated, he has done this in the past and he is very untrustworthy. We also found out that even though we paid for high quality paint and calk, the products used were standard contractor quality. He had the crew paint our deck even though it had started to rain and never returned to paint an additional coat of stain. In addition, Dustin did not visit our home regularly throughout the project to check on the crew. We later found out that he had lost his drivers license and had to rely on others to drive him to the job sites. We have never given anyone a bad review until now and with many painting companies to choose from we would recommend that you stay away from Grade A Painting & Dustin.

Beware!, 11/13/2014

We chose Grade A Custom Painting for the reasonable estimate, proof of insurance & "5 Year Warranty". It took them about a week in May. When we walked the job after they were done, we pointed out... some punch, including splotchy paint on both sides of house. The crew came back and did punch except for correcting splotchy sides. Dustin wanted to give more dry time. After a couple of weeks, still splotchy, Dustin wanted to get Sherwin Williams Rep involved... A few weeks later, the Paint Rep came out and said paint was good. When Dustin would reply to my voice, email & text messages, he kept saying he wanted to wait for cooler weather before repainting... he blamed the heat for preventing drying ??? I finally emailed him via BBB...he replied that he would come out "soon" to repaint. This has been going on since May 2014... 6 months have gone by... I should have never paid the full amount.

Great Experience, clean interior crew

Joel is a wonderful crew chief. He makes Dustin and his company look really good. They caulked and prepared all the trim, ceilings, and walls before painting. I was shocked that they took their time to go one full day of prep work with no painting. They are not your cheap painting company but not expensive either. You get what you pay for my wife and I learned. We have had some bad painting experiences and happy we chose Grade A Painting. We highly recommend them, dont bother going anywhere else.

unfair review

We were swamped with work so I used a highly recommended crew. They did a great job and we were paid in full. The new crew said it took longer and demanded more money. They complained to the owners after being paid what we agreed on...Grade A Custom Painting will only use our own employees for now on after this untrue situation. Feel free to call us if you have any questions about our company.

Dishonest Painter

Dustin of Grade A Painting is dishonest. He took advantage of us paying cash and refused to pay the sub-contractors who did all the labor painting the exterior of our home.He paid them nothing for their hard work and kept the full payment for himself. He also failed to match the original paint color of our home. Deeply disappointed in his lack of integrity and lack of professionalism. He did not do a walk-over to inspect his "workers" work but briefly stopped by to pick up the payment. It was a deep sacrifice financially to paint our home this summer and a deep cut to be taken advantage of and lied to by this greedy dishonest man.

His two painters Jamie and Angel were awesome. They replaced all the rotted hardiplank siding on my chimney and primed all the new wood. Im very pleased with the work and the painters were very courteous and polite. Great crew of workers.

great experience

I saw their sign 3 years ago and kept the number and called Grade A Painting. The owner Dustin came out the same day and gave me a quote the same day. Included his references, company background, and was the only contractor to give me his insurance upfront. We decided to go with them because they did such a great job on the house down the street. They pressure washed. Repaired the rotted wood and caulked all cracks and gaps. Then used Sherwin Williams paint and caulk and they finished in 5 days. Very polite employees and hard workers. Just wanted to give them a great recommendation!

Great Company

After seeing a sign in our neighbors yard we asked for the owner to come over and give us a quote. He gave us an estimate on the spot. We liked the price and everything went well and we have no complaints. They wore shoe covers on the inside of our home and were very clean. Used Sherwin Williams on our walls and trim. Finished in a timely manner and did everything they said they were going to do. Walls look great and we are happy to write a review for Grade A Painting. Plus one thing that sold us was reading their website, it was great describing how their company operates.

Thanks

Used 6 years ago and the caulk is still looking great. I did a repaint with Grade A Painting and was very pleased to use them again. They pressure washed my home with clorox. Caulked all seems and gaps, and replaced 2 rotted brick moldings with PVC. Then painted the siding with Sherwin Williams Paint. Satin on the siding and Gloss on the trim, shutters, and Front door. Great job!

very easy to work with

Dustin did a great job going over the estimate. He showed me his references, family history, and was the only company to give us his insurance. We felt comfortable and signed the contract last Friday. They just finished and are happy with the work. Dennis Hicks. 3CHIMNEYS FARM
