Today is day one of College Works Painting painting our house in Poway, CA. Our intern/project manager is very friendly and has shown up when he said he would. His team consists of two painters who are probably college students. They started work at 8 am and worked until about 6.30 pm.
Unfortunately the work seems to be very sloppy with many areas of paint missed and bad brush work on the trim. Drips of trim paint have fallen onto the house wall below (a different color). There is very little attention to detail, which is particularly apparent at the edges. We have a paint hand print on the wooden side gate, and our wall and garden ornament have been broken.
We pointed out the missed areas and bad edges to the intern/project manager who agreed with us and said he will fix it. I hope he is right. I will update tomorrow...
Day Two: the paint on the side of the house is much better than the job on the front. Different painter with higher quality work. They're still working on the missed patches at the front.
Day Three: no painters came today. Still bad paintwork at the front. Getting frustrated.
The sales man came today to give us a quote, but as my husband was not available aswell he refused to talk to me! Very pushy and rude. He also asked a lot of personal questions which I did not like. If it is this difficult for a genuine potential customer to get an honest quote then I can't imagine how they deal with the rest of their business.
I have been here twice now since it recently opened! They have a good selection of different flavors - some that particularly appeal to adults and others that everyone loves. They also have great toppings - a wide selection of fruit and also a good selection of nuts, sprinkles etc. My kids LOVE it!! I like the fact that they charge by weight so I can buy a small amount for my 2 yr old without it going to waste. Great place to take the family!
This is one of my favorite places to go for coffee - it has a really friendly and relaxing atmosphere, great coffee and some tasty treats! The staff are very nice too!
These pizzas are huge! They are great for a big group of people and fun for parties. They're really tasty too! You can order a wide variety of toppings and the staff are always happy to accommodate unusual combinations!
This is a lovely place to take friends and family for afternoon tea. The atmosphere is elegant, the food is good and they have a large selection of teas. The staff are friendly and helpful. Very relaxing!
This place was recommended to us by a friend and we were glad we went! They have a great selection of rugs in a wide range of styles and sizes. Better than all the other places we had looked in the area. The prices are reasonable too!
Marcia has alot of energy and some wonderful creative ideas for the kids. She even made everyone at a party a personalized apron to use for the crafts - my boys love them and still wear them all the time!
My children are big Hullabaloo fans (and I secretly am too!). They have some very catchy original music that will make you smile - check out "Sippy Cup" and see the video on YouTube. Mama's got a brand new sippy cup, she goes to Starbucks to fill it up...
This park is well worth the trip - my boys really enjoy it. There is a nice playground with a good variety of climbing structures and slides as well as lots of grass to play on.
