Answer for What expectations are reasonable when hiring a contractor?

I agree, the repair work could have easily been and should have been addressed. Suppose if he were coming back to touch-up damaged wood from a recent paint job as a favor, but if you hired him to specifically fix this damage then yes he should have included the extra step. But it sounds like you have a good relationship with this guy, I would just explain the situation without "demanding" it be done, and maybe leave Magic Dave out of the conversation. No need to feel weird, you're the customer. It sounds like a simple error in communication. -Prestige Paint and Decor

Unless it was specified in the agreement, what it sounds like you want is a restoration job.That would cost you much more than a repaint.

Agree, most of these defects are easily fixed with some sandpaper and spackling paste. This shows why it is a good idea to ask a lot of questions during the bidding process. Both the painter and homeowner needs to be on the same page.

No question… these defects need to be better repaired by spackling, sanding priming and then finish coat… there will still be some evidence of defects but certainly much less than what shows here… demand that it be done… tell them you consulted online with me and I totally recommend it… anything less is an inferior job…
