Where Can I...?

by Christina Hall » Mon Oct 31, 2011 12:26 am

I think "where can I" would be a great segment in Louisville Hot Bytes...a place to ask where to find this or where to do that!

But anyway...tonight my question is...where can I find a good interior painter who is professional and not overly expensive? (preferably one who can get a small job done quickly)

I have a small room I need painted, (walls, ceiling and doors) and would like to get some estimates and also hire someone local who comes recommended.

So....anyone?

Thanks in advance!

:roll: Good fricking luck because I've been where you're at before. What you are looking for is what I generally refer to as a "ham and egger" and they are notoriously undependable. Doesn't matter if it's a painter, a carpenter, a plumber the scenario is repeated with uncanny regularity. It usually goes like this: You have a small job, so you try to find a small "local" guy who you figure could use the money/work. So someone gives you a name and you call the guy and he swears to GOD he's going to show up and give you an estimate and/or do the job....so you give up your search assuming the problem has been taken care of...and then the a**hole doesn't show up.

This scenario is one of the reasons (after 25 years of home ownership) that I can now repair and/or improve just about anything. Case in point; as I am typing this I'm looking at an index card where I wrote down the name and number of the chuckleheaded bastard who swore to GOD he was going to come out repair a hole in my roof in early Sept. I'm also looking into the dining room where I have substantial water damage waiting for MY attention because the a**hole never showed up and we had two days of monsoon rains before *I* was able to climb on the roof and fix the da** thing.

Anyway, drop me a PM with the details of your job. I'm retired, I've got a little time on my hands this month...maybe I could help ya out.
