It pains me to have to write a negative review but I really think people need to know about Elise Perez. I do NOT recommend “A Ladies Touch Painting” and I’m going to tell you the exact reasons why. I have had Elise and her crew paint for me 4 times at 2 different houses.
Reasons why you shouldn’t hire her:
1) She always has to come back and “fix” her work. She often doesn’t get the lines straight between the baseboards and the wall. Then she tells you that the masking tape bleeds through. Sorry, if you’re a professional painter, you should be able to do straight lines. I can show you pictures!
2) During the last job, she told me she was charging me $35 an hour. I agreed to this price although I thought it was high. She neglected to mention that this was $35 an hour PER PERSON. She usually shows up with maybe 1 other guy. This last time she showed up with 3 guys. Then after the job was done, she told me I needed to pay them EACH $35 an hour. All she had to to do was check with me in advance to make sure I was cool to pay $35 an hour PER PERSON and to RUN IT BY ME THAT SHE WAS BRINGING MORE PEOPLE THAT I NEEDED TO PAY FOR. She never did so but just expected me to pay the extra for the extra painters she showed up with.THIS DIDN’T EVEN INCLUDE THE $157 EXTRA I PAID FOR PAINT! THE $35 PER PERSON PER HOUR SHE CHARGED ME DIDN’T INCLUDE THE PAINT!
3) After that, she had the audacity to tell me that it was “understood” that I was paying $35 an hour per person and to try to make me feel bad saying I was making her want to cry when she was the one who was jacking me! I paid her the amount she asked but I wish honestly now that I hadn’t. I feel like I was screwed over because she sprung it on me that she was bringing more painters that I had not agreed to pay for. That’s just shady, plain and simple, no matter how you look at the situation!
4) Then after all this, I asked her to come by to “fix” her mistakes. She told me she didn’t have the time and that for any future jobs should would just bid a price for them. SCREW THAT! You don’t screw me over and expect me to keep using you! Elise screwed over the wrong pregnant mama!
I’m refusing to use Elise Perez of a Ladies Touch Painting in the future and I want everyone in Sacramento/Elk Grove to know why they shouldn’t hire her! Also, learn from my mistake and if you’re hiring a painter/contractor be sure to get everything in writing.
