Provost Painters Merrimack, NH

Don't Hire Provost Painters. They say they can do handy jobs and perhaps this was our first mistake since they are painters.

They are okay at painting, but anything else and you are sure to be proven wrong by a bad decision by going ahead and hiring them. All I have to say is the owner seems nice at first, but beware this is all a facade. Gary has an attitude problem and is unprofessional, rude, and has no tact when it comes to dealing with customers. He did a terrible job in the handy dept in our home, and fortunately we decided to go with someone else who was by far more qualified to correct and finish the project he butchered.

Save yourself the grief, perhaps I was blinded by the guilt of trying to save some money, but now I know that hiring incompetent, rude, and unprofessional people is not the way to go.

The sad thing of it all is that his guys that work for him, especially one gentleman, Tony, was really nice and did seem to work hard. Gary on the other hand who was supervising everything, well, I don't ever want to deal with him again.

The Tony you refer to is Tony Cabana, used to and might still run his own business called TC Painting.


Gary Provost,

Because you used no coverage for painting, we now have over spray on the windows, stone around the house, cover of lawnmower, grass and other places around the house.

You did not prep work on the house, except power wash and that was a poor job, as there were still hornet nests and all items under the deck. You said you visited my house without call and/or letting me know your coming and I'm home 90 % of the time and I did not see you.

The roof power wash was done poorly and still has stains.

You would not take comments during your work and stated wait until my final inspection, which was done at a poor level competence.

During your last trying to correct area's that you mist in painting, you wanted no input on the problems and only looked at area's I put blue tap to indicate an area you did not paint correctly.

You don't even answer and/or return calls from customers.

You don't even call the customer when your planning to go to the job.

No cleanup of your work.

I could go on, but, I think you get what I think of your work.


I know Gary and his family he's a pot head and his sons are the biggest thieves alive. His kids have broken into more homes and sold more drugs then anyone could imagine. Def stay away from Provost Painting!
