SuperPro Painters are Super Pro Shysters Through and Through

Contracted SuperPro to do a complete repaint of my home for $5500. They were very attentive at getting the job specs correct and painting the first three rooms.

A week into the job then they pulled out thier painter. Despite the contract, they contacted me and demanded an additional $3000 to finish the job and were not able to provide any justification for the price increase. I tried unsuccessully to negotiate a resonable settlement. Forthwith I stopped all correspondance with them. They successfully filed a small court claim of $1600 for the work completed on the basis of unjust enrichment. Fair enough, they got paid for waht they did.

I was able to hire another contractor for $4200 to finish the job. The second contracter showed up on Tuesday with four painters and I handed him a cheque on Friday at noon for an immculate job!!

I would never recommend SuperPro to anyone! They provide the illusion of a professional company but when the paint roller hits the wall they revealed their true colours as rip-off-artists.

    Who did you hire that did the job right?

  3. They won a court judgement against you. Bitter much? Seems like the only shyster is you.

  4. I just read the reviews for them on Google and they got 2.2 out of 5 based on 43 reviews!
    You always need to read the reviews before hiring a company to do work for you!
    Sorry you had trouble with them.

  5. $5500 to paint a house? Better be DaVinci and Michelangelo for that price.

  6. Why in God’s name would anyone pay anywhere close to that just for painting! That seems ridiculous. Just get some friends and paint and supplies and beer and pizza. Painting party. Done. Thousands cheaper. But ok whatever! Some people roll around in cash I guess.

    Soooo you spent 4200 on a job you were quoted 3000 on and youre complaining about the 3.
    Makes sense.

    So who actually did the good job. You take the time to “warn”everyone of the shysters why not give a shout out to the company that was stand up…..sorry just confused by the over all post.

    They don’t pay there workers either.

  11. “Revealed their true colours” …

  12. Can you say who came and finished, give them some good advertising?
