I contracted these guys to PAINT our house a couple years ago. The guys that came over seems to do a good job of "painting" our house except the paint seemed to be way more flat than the stuff that was on there previously. Last year the plywood siding started to bubble and come apart. I did a closer inspection to find the "paint" had shrunk and there were cracks everywhere in the wood of the siding. I called College Pro and the kid there said...

Anonymous I have a contract to do some painting by a college pro painter.payed a deposit and the work was to be completed in August. Won't return my calls and the main office won't retu...

When the college pro representative came out to give us a proposal we told him there were two things we were adamant about, 1) caulking, the last painter we hired did not do it this time it must be done.2)the paint must be satin, absolutely did NOT want flat paint. He agreed to all. I was at work when they painted, they insisted it be signed off on that day, paint was still wet. When the paint dried it was obviously flat paint. College Pro...

We were promised to be one of the first customers of the summer. We signed up May 15th, and finally cancelled the job two weeks ago. I used College Pros to paint my house a few years ago. Couldn't have been more happy. This time around I couldn't be more disappointed. I don't recommend this company any more. This latest guy Andrew P. has ruined Olympia's College Pro reputation. Don't sign on to this company unless you have references from...

Recently had a full house painting job sort of completed. The job was suppose to start in early June, they got to it the last part of July. Nice kids but definitely kids and far from professional in quality of work and care around the job site. First day was prep and primer with small drops of primer deposited on my brand new trexx deck. Big promises of cleaning up, but not done very well. Later that afternoon 3 of the 4 spent more time and...

He promised to paint our house trim by the end of June. We've had no shows and the silent treatment ever since. I finally called his supervisor. No return call. It is now August 13th. There has been no work done on our house so I called Andrew's supervisor again. Connected this time. The only headway I got with Phil Rapasky was his promise to try to "reach out" to Andrew and find out why he has not responded to our (week ago) request to send us...

I had these guys out to paint and was left with a disaster.I paid them to get rid of them and was going to fix it myself. My son told me the job should have been done better as he was upset I had to fix over spray, spills, drips, and one thin coat when it should have been two. I have spent all summer painting and wasted 3200.00 on the job. They refunded me 750.00 and 3 gallons of paint and never sent a warranty as promised. The warranty would be...

College Pro Painters House Painting Review from Coralville, Iowa
I was told that they would pressure wash before painting. Never got done so they painted over all the dirt except for the few places they scraped. Still loose paint on house painted over. Poor coverage, I was told bare spots would be primed, instead the managed "upgraded" my paint to a paint/primer in one, and only put one coat on everything. Not worth what I paid, and was lied to..

We will not recommend College pro in the future.Student painters had no idea how to paint or carry a ladder. 5 weeks on the job 6/8 to 7/13, 2016. Repeated requests for touch ups, lack of proper brushes. Many spots and smudges of paint on decks, roof and other areas. Limited use of drop cloths. Paint chips left from scraping left on ground. Very short staffed with no on site manager most of the time. College Pro manager, Devin, personable but on...

I used College Pro service almost ten years ago. The paint job that was done was not professional at all. The painters that came to my house I do not think they were college students. I expressed my concern with the person that wrote the invoice and I paid. He at one time said that I was expecting too much. For the amount of money that I paid I did expect professional work.It took weeks for the person that I paid and signed with to come back and...

In a silence study room on the OSU campus and one of the college painter representatives keeps making phones calls to try to get people to paint there homes. Let your representatives know there are more appropriate places to make phone calls, will never use this company with just how abnoxious this man is being.

I will,second a lot of the negative reviews.No,experiance is the biggest problem and an obvious attempt to skimp on materials.As a builder for 35 years i tried two Colleage Pro painters for interior exterior and both did a miserable job,didnt complete and tried to,charge more.They have no,clue of how to do a good job.

Very poor communication and quality. Two months of painting and job still not completed. Finally told crew leader to leave paint so I could complete the job myself. College Pro of Rapid City, SD, is a franchise, and a call to parent offices was met with non concern. Simply referred back to crew who had not completed job. Would not recommend services in any way, shape, or form.

Stained deck on a hot summer day. Deck peeled. Scraped some of the peeling, including chunks of wood. Slapped stain over the scraped areas, creating a two-tone colored deck. Left the chunks of wood bare. Left their trash on property. Never responded to further complaints. Never repaired. Refused refund. Disgusting!

They are better sales people than they are painters. They bring a seasoned veteran with them and that guys does most of the talking, then when you sign the deal the head painter shows up and brings some snot nosed kids with them. They didn't scrape my house, didn't power wash anything, they simply painted over existing paint. When I asked why the answer I got was "my power washer is broken and my dad won't lend me the money to fix it." I...
