These people are scary and lied to me. A young man knocked on my door and said they were finishing up work on a house in the neighborhood. He asked if I wanted a free exterior paint inspection. Asked a few personal questions and said someone would call me to confirm. The guy barely left and he came back and said they couldn't get a hold of me by phone! I didn't even have a chance to turn on my cell phone. These people are very pushy. The scheduler, Amber, told me on the phone that two guys would be coming out the next day at 10am and would check the stucco. Instead, two well-dressed guys showed up in a small sports car. I thought either they were out a little too early to be clubbing or they were at my door to tell me the good news about Jesus. They asked to walk around the house and said if there was one layer of material on the stucco, that they'd just paint over it. They walked around the house and never measured. They talked about having their Marketing Team contact me. What contractor has a Marketing Team??? They gave me a price to paint the house for $27, 000 !!! (my house is 1300 sq ft) when a licensed painter gave me a price of $9, 000.
The next day my neighbor told me that they charged her $19, 000 for a walk in tub and they did the work without city permit and did not waterproof the tub walls. I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels these people aren't who they claim to be. I won't be having them do any work here! Be very wary.

I agree that these people are very pushy. They came to our house to do a quote on the outside painting. We asked them for a business card and they said they just ran out of them. We asked for any kind of information they could leave with us and they said they just came from another house and gave out their last flyer. What contractor doesnt come prepared with any papers or business cards? Thanks for posting this review. They unprofessionalism already raised a red flag for us and this confirmed it.

they won't leave without you signing up. The best thing to do is to sign up then cancel the next day. They will call everyday because they are a pain in the ass and don't take no for an answer. The best way to get them to stop is to file a complaint with the BBB

they won't stop calling even after you have done a job with them. They price real high and won't leave your house until you sign up for a service, even then it's easy to get them to drop thier price really low, while others get hosed. I've told them to stop calling and they kept on so I filed a complaint with the BBB

We just had a very similar experience with representatives of Pacific Homeworks yesterday. On Friday, a nice young man had stopped by the house, saying they were working in the area, asking if we needed any work done. My husband had replied we needed our driveway repaved / replaced. He replied they would be back tomorrow (Saturday) with as estimate. Who came back was a two-man very pushy sales crew, who moved into our house for 2 hours, with a very aggressive sales pitch and what started out as a ridiculous $26, 000 estimate for the driveway, that they dropped down almost 50% to $14, 760 when they saw we weren't going for it and trying to get them out of our house. My husband had to ask them semi-politely 3 times to get them to leave, and would not leave the estimate or any literature or business cards from the company. We told them we weren't going with them because this was the first estimate we had gotten, but they were just not taking "no" for an answer. When they dropped their price so much, it was pretty obvious it was super-inflated to begin with, and now we just have no intention of using them at all. They haven't started calling yet, but now we're just waiting for that.
