DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. The paint looks like it washed off the house. They promised to come back numerous times but either no showed or just splashed a little paint around and did not correct the problems. They are just a bunch of college kids who are nice enough but are not professional and have no supervision. You are welcome to come by my house to see the type of job they do. call 515-865-8117 do set a time to see just how bad of job they...

I hired these guys because of the sales pitch but I was taken in. They said they would stay until I was satisfied. Man talk about be taken to the cleaners my grandson could have done a better job. They also painted part of the house in the rain and got paint everywhere and then took off. What a mess they left behind. I would NEVER use this company and suggest you also walk away. In the years I have lived in the house this by far has to be the...

Anonymous Have you tried anything other than posting a complaint on the internet? You're more likely to get resolution by calling the head office or notifying someone higher up in the ...

I have been waiting for over six month for "college pro" to come back to repaint my walls that have "feathered paint strokes" (not enough paint on the roller)......it looks horrible to be a so called professional paint job for the price I was charged. I have sent several emails and tried to reach by phone to "Kevin Rutter" of Columbus Ohio and got nothing but revised dates. Very poor customer service. It is obvious he is not going to fix this...

(1) Missing some real basics in business 101. No call, no show to bid the job two times by the owner who blamed scheduing software each time... yet was more than 20 min late for the third appointment. I found a failure to accept responsability and or accountability at almost every level over basic things like missing spots with paint. When on the job the supervisor was also a no call no show, a day late without proper communication and or...

Anonymous They just paid my son for his week's worth of painting and pressure washing with a bad check!!! Cannot believe all the bad comments on College Pro Painters. Why aren't they ...

I contracted in June for my trim to be painted. I was told it would be done no later than the first week of August. The College Pro crew finally showed up the last week of August. I was apparently the last job of the summer. Their brushes were completely useless and stiff as a board. I did a lot of painting while in college myself as a summer worker for an oil company so i know what is good work and what is not. The College Pro crew did not even...

Like others who have had experience with College Amatures Painters my experience was a no different. If you have eight or ten days to spare keeping on top of them be my guest. Never had a full crew on any day. After each day I had to go around and point out the areas they missed. A day or so later I had to remind them of those same areas missed. Paint Trim around windows. No on your life. More paint on windows than on trim. What paint they got...

This is a very unprofessional and unorganized painting company. First of all they hire inexperienced painters. Second, the managers leave them unsupervised on the job sites every day for hours at a time. I would rather hire a blind man in a wheelchair to paint my house then these idiots. Specifically the Ames, Ia franchise.. the manager Grant is an *** and does all the things described above. I worked for them for over a month and got paid 180$,...

Anonymous Yep, sounds just like my experience with them. They don't pay you on time. They tell your you'll make 11$ an hour and then pay your minimum wage.

I got a bid from College Pro on having the trim of my house repainted they only beat the real pro by $100. The bid specified: scrape, fill, sand, prime and paint all trim and exposed wood. I had to babysit the workers because they just sat around and talked. When I pointed out an area that particularly needed filled, the employee said that the boss never gave them anything for filler and they had no sand paper either. When they were "done" the...

College Pro showed up to paint our two story house with two rental ladders, and four painters. Three of the painters did not want to use the ladders. The salesperson/foreman didn't know any more than the workers since he supplied them with the wrong kind of paint roller and brushes. The painters were very poorly, equipped and trained. We watched the three stooges plus one for eight days fight their equipment, paint our lawn, awnings and barbecue...
