Default My painter only pained part of fascia.

Had a painter come by and paint the soffit and fascia today. Am having the gutters replaced, and had the old ones removed before the painter got here. When I got home today was surprised to find that the painter did not paint portion of soffit where gutters will go back on. Pictures of result and of proposal is attached. What do you think?

Sloppy and incomplete work. He could have done it all while he was there. Not impressed. Nice that you took everything off so he could get at it . . . and then he did THAT? Make him come back and finish the job. Paint helps protect the wood and 3/4 paint is only 3/4 done.

I would think it was just a misunderstanding and he will be supprised when you complain. I don't think it's worth a big fight over as the old paint is still there to protect the wood and if you weren't changing the gutter it would not have been painted anyway.

It is only like this on the portion of the house pictured, the back where it is two stories above ground. At first I thought maybe his ladder wasn't tall enough to apply tape there and avoid the singles... however the house sides are even higher, and there, like in the front, 100% of the fascia was painted.

Anyway, I guess I'll ask nicely if he wouldn't mind finishing off this portion.
