JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- When Pat Reeves hired a painter to give the interior of her home a new look, what she wanted was peace of mind, what she has is a bad paint job and a headache.
"At the time I was please with the job," said Reeves,"it did not start coming up until a couple weeks afterwards."
Her home was painted last Summer by Elmer Raisch. He did the painting but Reeves supplied the paint. He has since repainted her bedroom, but there are still problems.
"He got mad because I wouldn't pay him again," said Reeves. "I was not going to pay for the paint I felt it was his responsibility."
Reeves continues to discover imperfections, some areas are smooth and others have texture. At the root of the problem, the painter applied a latex paint to an oil based painted wall.
