House painting

I hired Student Works to paint a part of my house. I was out of town while it was done as the franchisee changed the schedule. He called wanting me to inspect the job as soon as I was back so he could get paid. There was paint all over the outside furniture, decks, pavers, windows, railings, even the hose! They did only one coat and missed big areas, leaving the old colour. The trim work was pathetic, they painted over dirt and lifted paint, no scraping and sanding or power washing. they killed the grass and left their lunch garbage and never cleaned anything once. It will cost more to get the job fixed than their bill, and I have to replace all the stuff with paint on it. I did get my money returned.

These are Student Works franchisees. So which one you hire determines the paint job. If you pick a bad one, that's what you get, the management doesn't care what kind of job the franchisee does. The "district manager" was running his own franchise and had very little time to deal with my issues, even though he said it was really bad. Upper management never answered my calls or emails. My bad franchisee didn't seem to care I suspect because he had other complaints and was losing money. I wouldn't let him fix the job because I didn't want more damage and his attitude was very hostile. The pictures are after the paint job.

Thanks Ian. As we said before, sorry for your experience. It's extremely rare and with 30 years in business I assure you, we care. Your schedule did not allow us time to fix your home so your deposit was refunded in full.

Painted inside of house!

Connor and his team worked around all other trades perfectly and in a timely fashion.

We could not have asked for better service and at a very good price!

We highly recommend connor and his team for anybody looking to get work done.

repainting of bathroom

Had our bathroom sanded, primed and painted very quickly and efficiently. I found the Student Works employee to be very friendly, but professional at the same time. Would use again!

House painting. Exterior and interior

Connor and his team of painters have done a fantastic job of painting our house. They did such a good job of painting the exterior, that we had them back to paint the interior. A very likeable group of young people, who take pride in their work! The price above reflects the price for the exterior paint job, photo below of work in progess

Staining My Big, Old Garage

My big, old, two storey garage hadn't been stained for decades. I had been gifted with enough old stain to cover the garage about half a dozen times. I had stored the stain for years and needed it used up. I had to go out for meetings on the day of the job and was just leaving as Mitch and his 'Student Works' crew arrived. I said hi to the guys, gave them a quick lowdown on the job, wished them a great day and departed. By the time I returned, the job was finished and the crew was gone. There is an elderly lady who lives across the alley from me. She's a tough old cookie. I saw her and asked if she had watched and she said yes. I asked if they had done a good job and she replied with an emphatic 'Oh, yes!" If it was good enough to impress her, it's good enough for me. I can't think of any way to thank the boys enough. Top marks. Highly recommended.

Interior walls

Jack and his crew were very professional, prompt and courteous. The quality work done by Sam was meticulous and efficient and each day our home was left tidy and in order. I appreciate the little things that Sam did such as re-hanging my vertical blinds. Thank you Jack, Sam and Jess!!

Old house face lift!

Ricardo, Chris, and Mitja were the most excellent crew! They worked long and hard to do an excellent job in three days. Excellent prep, paint, and cleanup. They were timely and worked with happy enthusiasm.
